New Book Relates to Other Riordan Novels

If you enjoyed the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series then you will probably find Nine from the Nine Worlds by Rick Riordan enjoyable due to the fact that aspects from other Rick Riordan books are included.


Nine from the Nine Worlds by Rick Riordan has many things that his other books have, such as humor, mythology, and quests. There are many jokes in the book that make one laugh. The mythology is present in the story but it’s not that descriptive compared to the other books. This piece of writing doesn’t contain that much of information about Norse mythology. The short description of the story says that it was made to help the reader understand more about these types of myths but it may not do so. It also says that it is a good read for fun and I agree with that. The quests aren’t as similar as the others because they are short stories and they can’t have a hold plot unfold to make one quest a whole book. This makes them not be as substantial. Even though this is a sequel to the Magnus Chase series Magnus isn’t included in the book, except for his name being mentioned. All of the characters in this edition have their own perspective, which is similar to the Heroes of Olympus series and the Demigod Diaries. If you wanted a book with the characters from the trilogy then you’ll probably like this book. The short stories aren’t connected with each other, except for the few details that tell the reader that all of these events happened over the duration of a day. Since the book is a continuation of a series it’s probably better if you read the three books in the series before you read this one because it has some references of the other books, but it is okay if you don’t. I recommend this book for 9 to 15-year-olds because they will probably like it more than other age groups. If you want to read this book I think you should borrow it from the library first and if you like it then you can buy it, but it is more of a one time read. I would highly recommend that anyone interested in these types of books to read Nine from the Nine Worlds by Rick Riordan.
