October 12th came and I got the book in the mail a few days later and I’ve read it and it…is…good! Because camp half-blood and demigods are familiar now, it’s missing just a little bit of the wonder of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but I really like the new characters: Jason and Piper and Leo. (Especially Leo!) I loved the mechanical dragon Festus. Personally, I’d rather ride a mechanical dragon than a hippogrif, I mean, if anybody ever gives me the choice. I liked the whole set-up that does involve Annabeth, Percy and Thalia and how the first series is related to this one. They just aren’t the main focus. I do think we will see more of them as the series moves forward.
This one opens with Jason, Piper and Leo on a bus on a field trip. Jason has amnesia and doesn’t even know who Leo and Piper are. Monsters attack (of course!) and hey, don’t you know, these three are demi-gods and their teacher is their satyr/guardian. If you don’t have the book yet try out the first two chapters and then take a look at what other kids have to say about it. (Although beware spoilers!) Author: Rick Riordan
