Others may think, Ha, ha, loser! But if you saw me on the street, ninety-nine percent of you would walk right past like Im invisible. Youd wonder if Im older than I look, because surely a teenager wouldnt be wrapped in a stinky old sleeping bag, stuck outside in the middle of a Boston winter.

Somebody should help that poor boy! Then youd keep walking. I dont need your sympathy. Im used to being laughed at. Im definitely used to being ignored.

Lets moveon. The bum who woke me was a guy called Blitz. As usual, he looked like hed been running through a dirty hurricane. His wiry black hair was full of paper scraps and twigs. His face was the color of saddle leather, and was flecked with ice. His beard curled in all directions. Snow caked the bottom of his trench coat where it dragged around his feetBlitz being about five feet fiveand his eyes were so dilated, the irises were all pupil.

His permanently alarmed expression made him look like he might start screaming any second.

I blinked the gunk out of my eyes. My mouth tasted like day-old hamburger. My sleeping bag was warm, and I really didnt want to get out of it. Whos after me? Not sure.

Blitz rubbed his nose, which had been broken so many times it zigzagged like a lightning bolt. Theyre handing out flyers with your name and picture. I cursed.

Random police and park rangers I could deal with. Truant officers, community service volunteers, drunken college kids, addicts looking to roll somebody small and weak all those wouldve been as easy to wake up to as pancakes and orange juice. That meant they were targeting me specifically.

Maybe the folks at the shelter were mad at me for breaking their stereo. Those Christmas carols had been driving me crazy. Maybe a security camera caught that last bit of pickpocketing I did in the Theater District. Hey, I needed money for pizza.

Or maybe, unlikely as it seemed, the police were still looking for me, wanting to ask questions about my moms murder I packed my stuff, which took about three seconds.

The sleeping bag rolled up tight and fit in my backpack with my toothbrush and a change of socks and underwear. Except for the clothes on my back, thats all I owned. With the backpack over my shoulder and the hood of my jacket pulled low, I could blend in with pedestrian traffic pretty well. Boston was full of college kids. Some of them were even more scraggly and younger-looking than me.

I turned to Blitz.

Whered you see these people with the flyers? Beacon Street. Theyre coming this way. Middle-aged white guy and a teenage girl, probably his daughter. I frowned. That makes no sense. Who I dont know, kid, but I gotta go.

Blitz squinted at the sunrise, which was turning the skyscraper windows orange. For reasons Id never quite understood, Blitz hated the daylight. Maybe he was the worlds shortest, stoutest homeless vampire. You should go see Hearth. Hes hanging out in Copley Square. I tried not to feel irritated. The local street people jokingly called Hearth and Blitz my mom and dad because one or the other always seemed to be hovering around me. Ill be fine.

Blitz chewed his thumbnail. I dunno, kid. Not today.

You gotta be extra careful. He glanced over my shoulder. Theyre coming. I didnt see anybody. When I turned back, Blitz was gone. I hated it when he did that.

Reward Yourself

Just Poof. The guy was like a ninja. A homeless vampire ninja. Now I had a choice: go to Copley Square and hang out with Hearth, or head toward Beacon Street and try to spot the people who were looking for me. Blitzs description of them made me curious. A middleaged white guy and a teenage girl searching for me at sunrise on a bitter-cold morning.

Who were they? I crept along the edge of the pond. Almost nobody took the lower trail under the bridge. I could hug the side of the hill and spot anyone approaching on the higher path without them seeing me. Snow coated the ground. The sky was eye-achingly blue. The bare tree branches looked like theyd been dipped in glass. The wind cut through my layers of clothes, but I didnt mind the cold.

My mom used to joke that I was half polar bear. Dammit, Magnus, I chided myself. After two years, my memories of her were still a minefield. I stumbled over one, and instantly my composure was blown to bits.

The man and the girl were coming this way. His baffled expression reminded me of a substitute teachers: I know I was hit by a spit wad, but I have no idea where it came from. His dress shoes were totally wrong for a Boston winter. His socks were different shades of brown. His tie looked like it had been tied while he spun around in total darkness. The girl was definitely his daughter. Her hair was just as thick and wavy, though lighter blond.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer (Book 1)

She was dressed more sensibly in snow boots, jeans, and a parka, with an orange T-shirt peeking out at the neckline. Her expression was more determined, angry. She gripped a sheaf of flyers like they were essays shed been graded on unfairly. If she was looking for me, I did not want to be found. She was scary. I didnt recognize her or her dad, but something tugged at the back of my skull Father and daughter stopped where the path forked.

They looked around as if just now realizing they were standing in the middle of a deserted park at no-thank-you oclock in the dead of winter. Unbelievable, said the girl. I want to strangle him. Assuming she meant me, I hunkered down a little more. Her dad sighed. We should probably avoid killing him.

He is your uncle. But two years? Dad, how could he not tell us for two years? I cant explain Randolphs actions.

I never could, Annabeth. A scab was ripped off my brain, exposing raw memories from when I was six years old. Which meant the sandy-haired man was.

Uncle Frederick? I flashed back to the last family Thanksgiving wed shared: Annabeth and me hiding in the library at Uncle Randolphs town house, playing with dominoes while the adults yelled at each other downstairs. Youre lucky you live with your momma. Annabeth stacked another domino on her miniature building. It was amazingly good, with columns in front like a temple. Im going to run away. I had no doubt she meant it. I was in awe of her confidence.

Then Uncle Frederick appeared in the doorway. His fists were clenched. His grim expression was at odds with the smiling reindeer on his sweater. Annabeth, were leaving. Annabeth looked at me. Her gray eyes were a little too fierce for a first graders.

Be safe, Magnus. With a flick of her finger, she knocked over her domino temple.

Hm... Are You a Human?

Magnus has a brief vision of his father Frey before returning to Hotel Valhalla to stand trial for his disobedience. Before he can be punished, however, Magnus's hallmate X stands and reveals himself to be the god Odin , in disguise. Odin rewards each of the heroes in turn, finally offering Magnus a chance to return to life or choose a different afterlife.

Magnus declines, but returns to Boston to speak with his cousin Annabeth. The two hold a funeral for Natalie Chase and exchange stories of each other's lives as demigods.

Meanwhile, in the epilogue , Loki punishes Randolph for not being able to stop Magnus from rebinding Fenris. Loki implies that Randolph's family will be in danger if the man does not cooperate. He is Annabeth Chase 's cousin, but last saw her when he was very young.

He has healing and regeneration powers, resistance to extreme temperatures, and other magical abilities. As a human, he was asthmatic and weak, but gains extreme strength and endurance after his death. A daughter of Loki , she emigrated from Iraq with her family and is descended from a medieval Arab traveler and historian who wrote an important account about living among the Vikings.

She is a practicing Muslim , a shapeshifter and carries an axe and a green hijab , which doubles as a camouflage cloak.

She is engaged to her second cousin, Amir Fadlan, who works in a falafel shop. He is an alf elf. He is deaf-mute , but speaks Alf Sign Language and can read lips. He had an abusive childhood, with parents who disliked him because of his disabilities. In exchange for working for Mimir , he received the ability to work rune magic.

He is the son of Freya. He and Hearth watched over Magnus while he was living in the streets. Blitz's father was killed by Fenris when he was a child, after an attempt to replace the Fenris Wolf's bindings. Blitz is unskilled at crafting unusual for dwarves but is a master fashion advisor. He, like Hearth, once worked for Mimir.

Sam brought X to Valhalla when he died dismantling a dog-fighting ring. He is called X because his real name is difficult to pronounce. Magnus retrieved it from Boston Harbor, won its allegiance, and nicknamed it Jack. He can take the form of a pendant and move on his own. Nine days hence the sun must go east, Ere Sword of Summer unbinds the beast.

The second line refers to how Magnus manages to leave Valhalla despite claims that the hotel is impossible to escape. The final two lines describe how Sumarbrander was fated to free Fenris as it did before rebinding him , and how the one day of the year where Fenris' island can be reached by a mortal was exactly nine days from the date the prophecy was given.

He also stated that his plans for the setting were unrelated to his recent move to the city, although living in Boston made researching for the series less difficult.A middleaged white guy and a teenage girl searching for me at sunrise on a bitter-cold morning.

Blitz's father was killed by Fenris when he was a child, after an attempt to replace the Fenris Wolf's bindings. I never knew much about the family soap opera, but there was a lot of bad blood between the three kids: Randolph, Frederick, and my mom. Just try! His baffled expression reminded me of a substitute teachers: I know I was hit by a spit wad, but I have no idea where it came from.

Whered you see these people with the flyers? Random police and park rangers I could deal with. Time flies when youre sleeping under bridges and eating from Dumpsters. Dont think about what youre doing, Magnus.
