Morador de rua, sua vida muda completamente quando ele é morto por um gigante do fogo. Por sorte, na mitologia nórdica os heróis mortos vão parar em Valhala, o paraíso pós-vida dos guerreiros vikings. Lá, Magnus descobre que é filho de Frey, o deus do verão, da fertilidade e da medicina.

Desde então, seis semanas se passaram, e nesse meio-tempo o garoto começou a se acostumar ao dia a dia no lodge Valhala. Quer dizer, pelo menos o máximo que um ex-morador de rua e ex-mortal poderia se acostumar. Magnus não é tão well known quanto os filhos dos deuses da guerra, como Thor e Tyr, mas fez bons amigos e está treinando para o dia do Juízo ultimate com os soldados de Odin — tudo segue na mais completa paz sanguinolenta do mundo viking.

Mas Magnus deveria imaginar que não seria assim por muito pace. O martelo de Thor ainda está desaparecido. E os inimigos do deus do trovão farão de tudo para aproveitar esse momento de fraqueza e invadir o mundo humano.

O martelo de Thor é o segundo quantity de Magnus Chase e os deuses de Asgard, a trilogia de Rick Riordan sobre mitologia nórdica lançada em 2015.

A espada do verão, primeiro livro da série, vendeu 70 mil exemplares no Brasil e ficou várias semanas nas principais listas de mais vendidos do país.

Com personagens já conhecidos do público, como Annabeth Chase, prima de Magnus, e Percy Jackson e deuses como Thor, Loki e Odin, Rick Riordan nos apresenta mais uma aventura surpreendente, repleta de ação e humor, que faz jus ao livro anterior da série.
