My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I have to admit, when I started this book, I really didn’t want to. However, it was worth it, at least as much as any of these Heroes of Olympus book can be.

I don’t know that I care enough about the storyline to look forward to the next book. I might read it when it comes out, I might not. I simply don’t care.

The Percy Jackson series had humor, style, action and grace. Heroes has teen angst.

To sum up this book, Percy Jackson kicks Jason’s ass, period.
Not literally, but in a characterizational way [and yes, I made up that word just for this].
To be fair, I’ve had a whole series to find out about Percy Jackson, and 1 book about Jason.

Starts dealing with the Roman aspects of the gods and opens up whole new realms of possibilities.

Jason isn’t the personable, likable, enjoyable character that Percy Jackson was though. And I suspect the whole series is going to be “…not like Percy Jackson was”…
