Why aren’t people talking about the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series???? We have a dark elf that appears as an African American man, a deaf elf, and a girl who is Arabic and Muslim who wears a hijab. Samirah talks about people attacking her for her religion and ethnicity. She explains the hijab.

“The elf had regained consciousness - sort of. He leaned against Blitz, giggling silently and making random signs like, Butterfly. Pop. Yippee. Blitzen clutched his stomach and stared into space as if he were thinking of interesting ways to die.”
