I love Rick Riordan's writing style and characterization. I have always enjoyed mythology and he does a great job of bring any and all mytholgy to life in a fresh and new way. I find the characters to be engaging and to feel really real. His characters feel fresh and diverse without feeling like he makes them diverse just to have diversity. He does not belabor the point of their diversity it just is a fact of who they are and yet anyone who reads his books can feel included in representation. I love how he weaves the mythology into modern times so you feel like you are learning something as you are being entertained. ( )

Halfway through this story I realised that I had already read this story. So I checked, and it's in the Demigod Files, which I think I read right after finishing the Percy Jackson series. I don't understand why it's now in my copy of the Trials of Apollo, and I honestly would have liked it better if it had been a new short story. Oh well, it was still kind of enjoyable I guess. ( )

I loved this little novella in the Percy Jackson series. We got to see Percy working with Thalia and Nico again, which was cool. We also meet a new god and take on a "mini" challenge. However, even though it was a novella and much shorter than the other books, it was still packed with excitement and adventure and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Some novellas feel rushed and too short, but this one didn't and that's a huge accomplishment. ( )
