    All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

    What would have made METAtropolis better?

    So boring, I couldn't even listen very long before I shut it off because it couldn't even retain my attention. Call it a loss and strike it from your books offered!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not this book!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dull, boring.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from METAtropolis?

    All of it!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money or credits on this one!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Red Pyramid to be better than the print version?

    Definitely an all together different experience from reading the book, totally worth the listen!


    What did you like best about this story?

    How it is chalk full of historic facts, spun into an funny yet believable and thrilling story!


    What about Kevin R. Free and Katherine Kellgren ’s performance did you like?

    The true winner is Katherine, I like Kevin, but I get excited when Katherine takes over the narration! She's fabulous!!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The truth behind the magic!


    Any additional comments?

    Rick Riordan has done it again! A great new series that closely rivals the Percy Jackson/Hero's of Olympus books! His research is impeccable and his story line flawless!
