Once again Rick Riordan has delivered. This series has been great fun for both myself and my daughter to listen to. The mythilogical references are great conversation starters for us and have ignited an interest in my daughter.
I would compare Rick Riordan's books to Harry Potter, engaging and entertaining for all ages.
The Narration was my biggest upset with this book. I have been listening to the entire series and had come to recognize the voice of Clary as Molly Quinn. Not that Sophie Turner read poorly, but I simply couldn't get past the accent. It was a huge mistake and took away from the story. I was deeply disappointed with this final book. I also couldn't understand why there was a Male reader. He barely read and it barely made sense when he did either.
This was a great story! Great characters, interesting story, and a perfect amount of humor and humanity. The narrator did a wonderful job of delivering each character and the subtly nuances of each of them.
I can normally guess the end of a book long before I've reached then end. But with this story I had my suspects all of which where wrong.
I have not listened to Robert Glenister's other audio performances but this was a perfect performance.
There's a part where the main character Strike and his assistant finally bond. It was a sweet scene and felt real.
I really did love this book, and I do hope to see more of Strike and Robin. I hope that JK Rowling doesn't let the fact that her pen name was found out hold her back from writing more. This book was a great success and I would be very sad if the story of Strike ended here.
