The Adventure Continues in Magnus Chase – The Hammer of Thor

With the newest installment of MAGNUS CHASE AND THE GODS OF ASGARD: THE HAMMER OF THOR, we dive right back into the action alongside Magnus and his friends. The story makes sure the listeners are all caught up with Magnus’ adventures from THE SWORD OF SUMMER, and the action begins almost as soon as the narration does.

In this audio, Magnus has to go hunting for another mythical weapon. But instead of replacing Jack (his Sword of Summer), he and his friends are hunting down Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, which Thor has lost again. Our heroes quickly discover that the hammer is not just lost—it has fallen into enemy hands, and the only one who can broker a return for the hammer is Loki, the god of mischief. And anyone who has ever dealt with Loki knows that trusting him is never a good thing.

There’s also a newcomer at Hotel Vahalla, whose parentage raises some eyebrows. But in order to retrieve the hammer and set things right again, Magnus, Samirah (Sam) al-Abbas, Blitzen, and Hearthstone are joined by the residents of Floor 19 to travel throughout the worlds in order to restore balance.

But as their adventure progresses, Magnus and the listener discover more about the worlds they visit and about Magnus’s friends’ pasts, quickly learning that not everything is quite as it seems.

Kieran Culkin, known for his work in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as well as many other films, narrates this audio, and he is a perfect choice for Magnus. He manages to capture the witticisms of Magnus but stay serious and focused during the tougher scenes. THE HAMMER OF THOR is an enjoyable and thrilling ride, and Culkin’s narration gives something extra special for the listener to enjoy.
