Honestly – I only picked this book up because it was two dollars and because I love the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series. I gave the Kane Chronicles a go and didn’t really enjoy it, so when I heard that Rick Riordan was starting yet another series, I was sceptical. But hey, you can’t say no to cheap books!
And oh my god. I enjoyed this book so much! It has everything the other books have – sass, humour, plot twists and all the feels. Riordan keeps referencing his other characters, too, in an incredibly funny way that had me literally snorting. Never did this book feel dragged out or boring; rather, it had me burning through the pages and finishing this book in about two days.
