I think I'm really just getting burnt out on middle grade/younger YA writing cuz this book took me a lot longer to read than it would normally. I still enjoyed revisiting the characters, and I'm honestly surprised by how much stuff I'd forgotten from it. Really excited to finally get back to Percy in the next book, but I'll have to spend some time reading some other things before I can really be ready for that.

I'm sorry, but Jason and Piper are boring. Especially Jason.

I think Bella from Throne of Pages was right: Leo carried the weight of this book on his back.

4 hours 24 minutes - When I first read this book, I don't think my heart was in it - I found it a drag to read, reading each page for the sake of it rather than for the enjoyment. I was rather scared this would happen when I reread it for the first time, but no, quite the opposite. I absolutely loved it, it was definitely on par, or even perhaps better than the introduction to the Percy Jackson series. I didn't love the multiple POVs at first but I quickly got used to it and I think it adds to the story. The 3rd person perspective also helps this book feel more serious than the Percy Jackson series, and I found it a lot more intense than these as well. I feel like the ending was slightly disappointing up to the last few pages, as it wound down a lot and felt a little boring in comparison to the rest of the book, but the cliff-hanger about the Greeks and Romans made it better. Can't wait to start the next book!

SpoilerI opened this book, turned to the first chapter, saw the name "Jason" instead of a silly little chapter title, and was genuinely disappointed. I really like Leo's character, but I found Jason and Piper hard to relate to. The battle at the end was more engaging than Son of Neptune, and I know we all love "You busted my boys!"
