9 From the Nine Worlds
The Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy may have concluded, but we haven't heard the last of our favorite peeps from the Nine Worlds. Join Hearthstone, Blitzen, Samirah, Alex, Jack, T.J., Mallory, Halfborn, and more on a hilarious and unforgettable journey through Rick Riordan's unique take on Norse mythology. While Magnus is off visiting his cousin, Annabeth, his friends find themselves in some sticky, hairy, and smelly situations as they try to outwit moronic giants, murderous creatures, and meddlesome gods. Can they stave off Ragnarok at least until Magnus gets back?

    It was so much fun to revisit the worlds and friends of Magnus Chase, whose series ended much too soon, in my opinion. This short collection is a fun jaunt through all nine worlds of the Norse mythologies, as the title implies, but it is so much more. The combination of literary detail with contemporary, light-hearted writing and characters gives Riordan a place of his own in the genre and in the hearts of his fans. Another winner, for sure.

I would recommend this book for fans of mythology and Magnus Chase.

Norse mythology driven, these stories are exactly what readers have come to expect from Riordan--the perfect blend of humor with adventure and myth. There is a common thread throughout that connects the stories: Thor (in all his flatulent, inappropriately dressed glory!) Standouts for me were Alex and Jack but also Hearthstone. A definite must read for any Riordan fan!Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars

    Love, love, love this book. I'm not going to lied, when Magnus Chase last book ended I was a little bit disappointed because it left somethings unfinished, specially with his friends stories. I love this book since it gave me a new insight into their minds. Every chapter in the book is dedicated to one of Magnus friends, and the thing that tied every story in the end is Thor! Who by the way continues to be CLUELESS! I want to keep reading more of this characters

He also manages to maintain a sense of playfulness - just look at the titles of those stories! - that will delight the target audience. And what is this target audience? The same youngsters who relish Captain Underpants.If you are planning to read this because it's a Magnus Chase book - please look it over carefully. It isn't really a Magnus Chase book in the sense that we have Magnus interacting with the Nordic gods. Instead we have a few gods telling stories. This could be very disappointing to a few dedicated Riordan readers but I suspect it will garner a new audience, which is what is likely intended.I personally wasn't a big fan of these stories, but if youngsters came into my library and asking for recommendations, I can see this being a popular choice.Looking for a good book? 9 from the Nine Worlds by Rick Riordan is part of the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard collection of books, but the target audience here is a bit younger the those who read the 500 page books.I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

    Anyone who has read the Magnus Chase novels will already have an appreciation for the kind of humor that Rick Riordan includes in writing them. For those who decided to try this collection of stories to see if they liked the Nine Worlds, here is a quick taste. Odin begins by sharing with us, "My Einherjar have a saying: Some days you are the ax, some days you are the decapitated head. I like it so much, I'm having T-shirts made for the Hotel Valhalla gift shop." So...yes...that's the All-Father, Anyone who has read the Magnus Chase novels will already have an appreciation for the kind of humor that Rick Riordan includes in writing them. For those who decided to try this collection of stories to see if they liked the Nine Worlds, here is a quick taste. Odin begins by sharing with us, "My Einherjar have a saying: Some days you are the ax, some days you are the decapitated head. I like it so much, I'm having T-shirts made for the Hotel Valhalla gift shop." So...yes...that's the All-Father, head of the Norse Pantheon, and ruler of Asgard.The organization of this anthology includes one story set in each of the nine worlds that are interconnected through the World Tree (Asgard, Midgard, Nidavellir, Alfheim, Jotunheim, Helheim, Niflheim, Vanaheim, and Muspellheim), and each story is told by a different character from the Magnus Chase books. There are beserkers, giants, gods and goddesses (including Thor in leather shorts attempting to rack up enough steps on his fitness tracker to win an appearance on a TV show), and even an honorably dead Union soldier. Their adventures range from shopping for clothing suitable for a 50th anniversary celebration to checking the condition of an egg containing "the future foul fowl of Helheim." Each story also gives us a little more about each of these characters, who all have followings among readers of the series and those fans will welcome some quality time with their favorite(s).Whether you are a Magnus Chase aficionado or a newbie, there are plenty of thrills and laughs within these pages to keep you entertained. (I must warn newbies, however - these are not the Norse myths as you may know them from watching Thor movies. Just saying.) I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.

Each tale is set in a different world of Norse mythology, and each has a different narrator. We get the points of view of Odin, Amir, Blitzen, Hearthstone, Samirah, TJ, Mallory, Halfborn, and Alex. Notably absent is Magnus himself, but as we have already got three books from his POV, I can understand why he didn't get a story here. I did still miss him, though. On the other hand, getting a glimpse into these others' minds was great. Especially considering this is one of my favorite casts of characters in anything ever.All in all, 9 From the Nine Worlds is a microcosm of everything we love about Magnus Chase: humor, heart, excellent representation, and rather wacky adventures in the world of Norse mythology. The major difference — aside from Magnus' absence — is that the stakes are a lot lower. With no Ragnarok to worry about thwarting, Riordan and his characters can have some more fun. And yet despite this being a different sort of book, these are still the people we know and love, and through their eyes we get to see more of the fantastical, strange, entertaining Nine Worlds.(Full review: https://righterofwords.wordpress.com/...)

    Of Rick's heroes series, I always thought the Magnus Chase collection was the weakest. Formulaic, preachy and kind of blah in action. His supplemental books are always sort of half-hearted attempts to prolong the series or the wait for the next book or an additional money maker. I've never really enjoyed these extra books but read them because I like to finish a collection.So... I was really surprised that the stories in 9 From the Nine Worlds was really good.

My tween read a collection of books from her favorite series this summer and deemed this the best of the bunch.Great job, RR. Can we make sure we keep the quality up on future supplementals?

I would not look for depth here though. The stories probably won't hold much impact for the rest of the series should it continue. I had fun with these. 3/5 stars.

    I really liked that this was about all the others, that it was each of them getting a story themselves and tho you can read this by itself (as everything is explained to you) I'm not really sure it's something to like as much if you aren't already a fan as it's giving you a story, a POV, for every character that is a friend of Magnus, that had a part in the main trilogy.I think it'd have been better if all this wasn't happening over the same time period, seemed a bit much tho makes sense to have I really liked that this was about all the others, that it was each of them getting a story themselves and tho you can read this by itself (as everything is explained to you) I'm not really sure it's something to like as much if you aren't already a fan as it's giving you a story, a POV, for every character that is a friend of Magnus, that had a part in the main trilogy.I think it'd have been better if all this wasn't happening over the same time period, seemed a bit much tho makes sense to have have a common theme running (literally) through the whole book. I liked that they were just being them and then bam they are in their own stories.

I enjoyed the story, but it didn't draw me in. Parts of it felt a little bland, but other stories were very good.

    This was well written (as are all of Riordan's books) but I feel like this is one that would really best suit the middle school grade. It was a few small insights into the world of Magnus Chase and Norse Gods, but nothing too significant. If you want to read it/are interested then go for it, but it isn't a must read.
