Kieran Culkin to Narrate Magnus Chase!

MC-HAMMER-OF-THOR-final-cover 2    Hotel Valhalla: Guide to the Norse Worlds

Cool news, audio fans! Award-winning actor Kieran Culkin has been cast to narrate Listening Library’s audiobook editions for THE HOTEL VALHALLA GUIDE TO THE NORSE WORLDS and MAGNUS CHASE, BOOK TWO: HAMMER OF THOR! You might know Kieran from his roles in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, IGBY GOES DOWN, and HOME ALONE—he’s also recently had his Broadway debut in Kenneth Lonergan’s “This Is Our Youth.” I can’t wait for you to hear his narration! The audiobooks will be available simultaneously with the print and ebook editions.

The Hotel Valhalla Guide to the Norse Worlds comes out August 16. This is a companion book for Magnus Chase. It’s not a novel. It’s a guide for new einherjar who have just arrived in Valhalla and need to know about the Nine Worlds, the hotel, the monsters they might face, and of course the gods. Funny narration about all things Norse. Cool illustrations. Great information. No reborn warrior should be without it!

You can listen to a sample of the audio here.

Magnus Chase 2: The Hammer of Thor will be published October 6. More Magnus! More Blitzen and Hearthstone! More Samirah! And now, with 85% more Loki and Thor! Plus a few marvelous surprises and awesome new characters.
