Book Review


This is a review on Rick Riordan's newest book, The Sword of Summer.


I rate Rick Riordan's newest book, The Sword Of Summer, five stars because it has a lot of action throughout the book, lots of battles that make you leap out of your chair of excitement. It is also very entertaining, with lots of references to Rick Riordan's other books, such as this very funny line for people who have read some of Rick Riordan's other books. "Could you do a glamour and turn into something smaller? A pen, maybe? The sword pulsed, almost like it was laughing. A pen sword. That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard." The last thing that makes this book amazing is that Magnus has to train his powers, what I mean by this is that if a character has powers and can use them, the character usually gets good at their powers in a while, but in this book Magnus really has to practice his powers to get good at them.
