    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.

    E ARC from Edelweiss PlusIf you haven't ordered this for your library already, you need to! It's hard for me to review short stories, and the Norse mythology is not my strong suit, but there are different camps of Riordan fandom emerging now, and Asgard lovers will need this! I have to admit to loving The Lightning Thief best of all, although one of my runners is trying to convince me that The Kane Chronicles is really the best. (And I would love...

    I received a copy of this book from Disney-Hyperion via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.9 from the Nine Worlds is the latest from Rick Riordan's Gods of Asgard series. Like other of his books, 9 from the Nine Worlds is more of a companion book which consists of nine short stories. Each chapter, or story, is told from the point of view of one of Magnus’s friends and each travels to one of the Nine Worlds. We get to see Hearthstone, Al...

    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 review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.0 of 5How do you appeal to the younger (late elementary/middle school) readers? You give them a popular series with some recognizable characters and you add some crude humor ("Thor was letting out farts like a sputtering engine.").This book is nine short stories told from the point of view of different characters. We start with Asgard: Home of the Aesir -"Just Another Decapitate...

    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 Valh...

    I got an advance reader's copy (ARC) of 9 From the Nine Worlds. As this means the version I read is just a proof and not the final version, I won't quote directly and will keep my comments general.The gang from Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard is back in this charming, silly, wholly enjoyable collection of nine short stories by the ever-talented Rick Riordan. Each tale is set in a different world of Norse mythology, and each has a different na...

    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 wa...

    I was provided a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.By now, we should all know what to expect from the "in between" books of Rick Riordan's series. 9 From the Nine Worlds is a new short story collection that takes place shortly after Ship of the Dead The collection is told in the point of view of nine characters and follows them as they adventure into each of the nine worlds with one very large (and smelly) connection. While...

    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...

    This book was okay. It's not what I've come to expect from a Riordan tale, but I understand that this is a stand alone supplement just to let the reader reconnect with some of the characters. I enjoyed the story, but it didn't draw me in. Parts of it felt a little bland, but other stories were very good. The story involving the necropants was creepy and that part will stick with me for a while. My students (middle grade readers) will be happy to ...

    Join Thor and our friends from the Norse myth’s as Thor takes a jog through the 9 Worlds to see what is happening. Revisit nine of our friends as each has an adventure in one of the nine worlds. Sure to please readers who are looking for more adventures of the einharji.I received an ARC from Netgalley.

    This book features short stories where we get to revisit characters we love and see the stories from their point of views. It was a quick and fun read.

    I enjoyed these short stories. I really liked getting to see the POV from each of the supporting characters, it adds to the experience and makes you like them all even more.

    I liked this book, but it was weird. I feel like its sort of a way to set up another series because there's really no point in having it not set up another.

    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.
