Here there be Percy. OH THANK GOD!
His presence alone makes everything better. Even the MPD.
Also - Nico! I love this little shit.
I like this trio better. Water, death and war - what's not to love?

I have mixed feelings all over the place.
Mars after War Games? I grinned my way through. You've got to admire the bastard. ( )

Once again, I enjoyed a Percy Jackson book! I am not sure exactly what it is about these books that keeps me coming back for more....it can't be the ridiculously impossible quests that MUST be completed in four days or less, or how they always seem to manage just that. I enjoy the humor and am glad that Percy is back in the spotlight. I really liked Hazel and Frank and Ella too! I was cracking up about the Amazons/Amazon tie-in! It was fun to learn more about the Roman side of the gods and to retravel in the Pac NW. If you liked the other books, I am sure you will like this one too. I already have Mark of Athena on order....

Oh Percy I missed you so much! Welcome back! But wait, new characters as well?! Frank, Hazel, and Reyna?! And an appearance by Nico?! Yeah I pretty much love everyone in this book even if it does introduce us to Octavian, the real of bane of Olympus. I like the friendship between the three main characters. Its different than the main trio of the original series, and the friendship between Leo, Jason, and Piper in the previous book. They become this cohesive team fairly quickly, but it doesn't feel forced. I also like the world building with the introduction of the new camp and the Amazons. Definitely a favorite. ( )

I love these books. The Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus etc. give me the feeling like I am reading Harry Potter. Rick is a great writer. He is funny, creates wonderful characters that you really care about and great action packed novels. This one was even better than the last, and waiting until next fall to find out what happens after this.....well, I am very impatient and it is going to suck. I loved the new characters, and it was wonderful to see Percy again. I think I like the Heroes of Olympus even a tiny bit better than the first five Percy books. ( )

Great fun! Another good one for those young lads. :D
I do wish Percy wouldn't be so occupied with Annabeth. I smell something in the future. . . ( )
