Book Review – Hotel Valhalla


by Rick Riordan (Penguin) ISBN: 9780141377278

A companion book to the Magnus Chase series, Hotel Valhalla is a handy reference guide to the realm of Norse Gods. The book serves as an introduction to the major and minor characters that appear in the Magnus Chase novels.

Hotel Valhalla also revisits ancient stories and gives them a quick modern update. We get to meet all the Norse Gods from Odin, Thor and Loki to lesser-known Frey, Gerd and Heidrun – to name but a few.

Written as a series of instructions to a hotel guest, Hotel Valhalla is impactful in delivering bite-sized character breakdowns that make it easier to read the longer novels. The book is also witty, and serves as a great addition if you are collecting the Magnus Chase series.
