This novel is much more emotionally intense with more real life growing pains for the characters than its predecessors. Riordan works just enough allusion to the previous novel to jog your memory without recapping the entire story. He continues his tale in a very vivid manner. Riordan’s descriptions make you feel like you’re watching a movie, rather than reading a novel. You are able to visualise each and every element of this phenomenal tale. He incorporates brilliant battle scenes into the novel are exciting without being gory.
Seeing the views of the different characters means that there isn’t 1 or 2 main characters, but rather many. Each is equally important and uniquely developed. You really get to know the various characters in depth throughout the series. I love how they continue to grow both as individuals and as a team. Through his brilliant character development Riordan shows that even the gods have a touch of humanity.
The way that Riordan writes you don’t have to try to immerse yourself in the story. Riordan’s fun, approachable writing style draws you in. Overall, this is a brilliant read for pre-teens and up. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It is a phenomenal addition to the series, but you’ll really enjoy it more if you read the rest of the series first. I completely enjoyed this riveting tale and can’t wait for more from this brilliant author.
Being a huge fan of the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series, I was thrilled at the amount of time dedicated to Percy and Annabeth. Their adventure through Tartarus is dangerous, deadly, and most of all, thrilling and did I mention amazing? The story is wonderfully stressful. I was so keyed up reading this book, desperate to know more and see what will happen next--this has to be the most exciting book of the series so far. It's all leading up to the final book of the series, which is guaranteed to be simply spectacular. Everything Riordan does is spectacular.
Rick Riordan is as talented as the great JK Rowling and I wish he received more attention in Canada. His knowledge of Greek and Roman mythology, and more than that, his ability to write dialogue for the monsters, gods, and other mythological figures without sounding cheesy is outstanding. He does his research. All of Riordan's books--The Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, and The Kane Chronicles--are well-written, exciting, and also educational. Whether young readers know it or not, they will walk away knowing something about Greek/Roman mythology.Read more ›
