Well well well. I was not expecting to enjoy this so damn much
Alrighty, new characters! I loved all of them so much. Leo was a riot, Piper was badass as hell, and the mystery surrounding Jason was interesting. Jason himself wasn't the best, but he was nice. In addition to new characters, the characters I know and love from the first series are back. Thalia, Annabeth, Chiron. I miss Percy though.
Ooh, Roman mythology. Tbh I'm partial to Greek mythology and don't really like the Romans. But it was still damn interesting.
So much action in just one book! It set the stage nicely for the rest of the series. The only problem is...I've already read The Hidden Oracle, so some things have already been spoiled for me. But no matter, I'll still enjoy seeing it all unfold.
Me at the end: Percy!!!! Nooooooo!!!! (if you've read the book, you know exactly what I'm talking about).
Tl;dr version- I swear I thought I had some more things to say...well, I will finish by saying this: I had so much fun with this, and I can't wait for the next books!
