On October 11th, author Rick Riordan launched his new book MAGNUS CHASE AND THE GODS OF ASGARD BOOK 2: THE HAMMER OF THOR (9781423160922), published by Disney-Hyperion, at the Hellenic Centre with Vancouver Kidsbooks. Rick signed copies of his new book for almost 1000 adoring fans with the help of Kidsbooks owner Phyllis Simon, and his editor, Stephanie.  


Thor's hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon--the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki--and the price he wants is very high.
