"Waiting On" Wednesday / Can't-Wait Wednesday #50: The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #3)

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking The Spine.

Title: The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #3) 
Author: Rick Riordan 
Expected publication: October 3rd 2017 
Genres:Fantasy, Young Adult, Middle Grade, Mythology

Magnus Chase, a once-homeless teen, is a resident of the Hotel Valhalla and one of Odin's chosen warriors. As the son of Frey, the god of summer, fertility, and health, Magnus isn't naturally inclined to fighting. But he has strong and steadfast friends, including Hearthstone the elf, Blitzen the dwarf, and Samirah the Valkyrie, and together they have achieved brave deeds, such as defeating Fenris Wolf and battling giants for Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. Now Magnus and his crew must sail to the farthest borders of Jotunheim and Niflheim in pursuit of Asgard's greatest threat. Will they succeed in their perilous journey, or is Ragnarok lurking on the horizon?

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?  Let us know in the comment section below.



  1. I must let my granddaughter know about this one - she LOVES Rick Riordan's books and I'm so very grateful... authors like him keep her reading which is a major struggle for her as she is severely dyslexic. Thank you for sharing:))

  2. I haven't read the Gods of Asgard series yet, but this sounds interesting!

  3. I've only read the first book *sobs* I have some catching up to do!

  4. I love Rick Riordan. I read all of the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus books and was so sad when they were over. I wish there were more. Enjoy it when it comes out!

  5. I haven't read a book in this series yet so I guess I better get started or I'm really behind.

  6. I'm such a bad fan- I still have yet to pick up this series but it sounds just as good as all of Rick's. Great pick!

  8. I LOVE Rick Riordan, and I can't wait to read this book! It's difficult to keep up though because I feel he has a new book every week! I don't know much about Norse Mythology but I really want to learn more. I'm a huge fan of this author!

  9. I loved the Percy Jackson series, couldn't get into the Kane Chronicles, and had trouble finishing the next series. But I like the idea of this series, so really should get started reading! Great pick!
