Overall Thoughts:

Wow this book was just wow. I loved the Percy Jackson series it always mad me wish I was a kid again and a demigod at that. This book is just so damn good.The merging of the Greek and roman cultures is an amazing idea. Then the disappearances and reappearances  everything is just wow. I am in awe of Rick Riordan he has made me an even bigger fan and i did not think that possible. I loved everything. This book kept me thinking and asking questions. I love how Jason is so much more fierce where Percy was more compassionate. I think that this book showed how different two cultures can be but that there is always a chance bring them together. I liked what Aphrodite said about that there being a chance of unity but with a risk like there is with anything that anyone does. I cant wait to read the son of Neptune(Poseidon) I see some more of Percy in the near feature! if you haven’t read this series what are you waiting for. Rick Riordan is an amazing writer who makes mythology/ history come to life in an exciting and imaginative way. I think that any one of any age will enjoy this book and should take an opportunity to read it if that can.

Rating: 5/5

Happy Reading!
