Overview

So you've made it to Valhalla. Now what?

This "who's who" guide to the gods, goddesses, and other important figures of Norse mythology was commissioned by Helgi, who, after more than a millennium as manager of Hotel Valhalla, became fed up with answering the same questions from newly deceased heroes at check-in. The profiles provide essential stats, interviews, and personal reflections so you can identify the gods and avoid those awkward introductions. Handy facts about other beings round out this go-to tome. You'll never see Ratatosk as a cute little rodent or confuse a dwarf with an elf ever again!

Riordan always creates fascinating little guides to the mythology that he dives into. However, I don't think this was his best one. Since Magnus Chase's books were fresh in my head, I knew most of what was covered in the book and it seemed to just repeat a lot of the information we knew. There were some things that I really enjoyed and some lines really made me chuckle, but truthfully, I didn't get too much enjoyment out of it. However, it's still Riordan goodness, but it really can be skipped. 2 crowns and a Cinderella rating!

I have read all three of the Magnus chases and I love this because it helps me on bits of the books I didn't understand but I wish it connected a little bit more with the characters from Magnus chase and maybe it could be a bit longer.

It would have been better if Riordan had put in little bios in there for the characters like Magnus or Samirah or Blitz or Hearth or Gorilla (if youve read the books, you would know who i mean) or Mr. Alderman or T.J or Mallory Keen (A.K.A Mack) or Halfborn or Alex Fierro or Otis and Marvin. Thats why i decided to do a three. And i also wish that he made the book bigger 'cause i was finished with in about five minutes.
