Rating 💚 💚 💚 💚 💚 Author Rick Riordan Title The Hammer of Thor Series Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2 Number of pages 471 Published October 4th 2016 by Disney-Hyperion Genre ya, Norse mythology, adventure, fantasy Goodreads Amazon I like the second book even more then the first one, it left me desperately wanting more, especially if there will be Percy Jackson cameo. :) Magnus’s life was never easy and it’s getting more and more complicated.

Rating 💚 💚 💚 💚 💚 Author Rick Riordan Title The Sword of Summer Series Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1 Published October 6th 2015 by Disney - Hyperion Books Number of pages 491 Genre mythology, ya, fantasy Goodreads Amazon I love all Rick Riordan book. I've read most books he's written (I still have to finish Magus Chase and Apollo series) and there wasn't even one I didn't like. With Sword of Summer and Magnus Chase we explore amazing world of Norse mythology. The story is action packed and it kept me glued to the pages. Magnus is homeless and liven on the streets, even since witness murder of his mother. His live changes drastically when he fights fire giant on the bridge and dies. It's action packed story of Norse Gods, Valkyries, Valhalla and there is Loki. :) He is even worse in book, than in Marvel movie and I loved every scene he was in. :) I've read it the second time and I loved it even more. The characters are very flesh

The Royal Companion by Tanya Bird

Rating 💚 💚 💚 💚 Author Tanya Bird Title The Royal Companion Series The Companion #1 Published March 22nd 2017 Genre high-fantasy, romance Goodreads Amazon Set in high-fantasy world, where noble men can buy women as companion, use them for as long as they please and the resell them, we follow story Aldara. Aldara was sold by her mother to the prince, next in line for the throne. He bought her as a gift for his brother, who was busy fighting in a war. Aldara has a great character and it doesn't come easy for her to fall in line with what she is suppose to be. She struggles a lot with her role, but somehow still manages to stay true to herself in small way. Her voice wasn't always clear, though. She was like two very different people at times, rebellious with a back bone or totally compliant. Tyron was very reluctant to take as a companion. They very slowly build friendship and after tragic event, that grows into something more like a relationship. I love rea
