Norse mythology review
Since I’ve finally read The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase #1) and I’m tackling the Magnus Chase and it’s been a few months since Viking History (though, to be honest that was a class on Viking History not Viking Mythology so only a small portion covered myths), I decided to review and brush up my knowledge of Norse myths.
I’ve checked this book out from the library a couple of times, browsed through it a bit, but now I’m giving it my full attention.
I’m curious to add more to than the popular myth and folklore. And pretty excited about it too!
