All in all this was a great book. It had some great points where each of the characters developed in some way or another. It had lots of good action and was a great read. I wish the ending hadn't been such a cliff hanger but that just makes me look forward to the next book that much more. I will definitely listen to it again.
The two other Heroes of Olympus books were read by Swanson and I've like them all so far. His reading is great and his voice is so much easier to listen to that the guy who read the original Percy Jackson books.
Great short in between story. Keeps things moving and provided some great information that I feel like matters later. And it's still awesome.
I'm a big fan of Sanderson's work. I really enjoyed steelheart and the mistborn trilogy. But this one has been my favorite so far. It's quirky its funny and it comes at the idea of superpowers from a completely fresh direction.
Great book. Slow in the middle but the character building pays off at the end. Sanderson is becoming one of my favorites.
Yes but I hate the idea of prequels. The only reason I read this one is because I read it before the others.
The Hunger Games but way darker so far.
It made me sad. Actually really sad. But no tears. I liked several of the characters and got attached.
I just finished this and I'm glad I read it first because I think had I read the trilogy first it would have ruined it for me. Not because the story isn't great but because knowing ultimately where it all ends up would have spoiled it. It would have taken away the suspense and hope I had while reading it.
Absolutely. No question. Its a great story that engaged me from the beginning and held me captive until it was finished. It left me wanting more. It also has almost no bad language something that for me was a real plus and is proof that you can tell a great story with out all that crap.
Its hard to say. The writing style reminded me of a cleaner Iron Druid Chronicles.
No Spoilers here!
Again I'm not giving anything away. Read it. Its awesome.
I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a long time. I will be buying a hardback copy and I will be listening to this one again.
No because the narrator is not as good as the other 3
Everything. Swanson was so good. why change?
The dude that narrated the original percy books was pretty obnoxious and so I was really excited about the change in the heroes of Olympus books. then this one came out. I was really looking forward to it too. To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement!
