*Semi-spoiler free review*

It's been a while since I read this book. A long while. I believe I read it four or five years ago, so needless to say I didn't really remember much. I pretty much only remembered that Hazel was daughter of Pluto and that Juno was actually Hera messing around with Percy. And of course I knew who Percy was.

That being said, this was pretty much a new experience for me. I haven't even finished this series, and it's been so long since I read this novel that I've forgotten who the characters are. But as soon as I started, it all seemed very familiar to me.

The writing was great, as always. There was just enough humor underlying everything to make it not such a serious and somber event. It was one of the reasons I love Rick Riordan's writing. 

I really like Frank and Hazel, though nothing beats the original dream team of Percy, Annabeth, Nico, and all them. I am excited to re-read book 3 so I can finally see what happens in the last two books.

Definitely recommend, but I wish there had been more of the Camp Half-Blood characters in this novel. I understand it's to build the world, but I kind of wished there was more with them.


Thanks for reading
