    Story

    As usual Riordan writes a wonderful story and makes me long to be apart of his world. The Roman myths are a bit unexplained but it seems that the Romans dont want to talk about anything. everything seems forbidden to their culture. I did like the way the Romans looked down on all the Camp Half-Blood traditions. Now on to my Headline. Swanson makes most of the characters sound kinda lame. His accent for some of the characters slips and makes it harder to tell if his voice is just a little higher for the girls or slightlydeeper for the boys. All the gods sound like either old dusty cowboys or my old aunts. I cringed everytime Octavius had lines. He can definitely improve in his performance, but he should try it on books that aren't written by my favorite authors.

    Story
    (2108)

    For 1,000 years, the people of Alera have united against the aggressive and threatening races that inhabit the world, using their unique bond with the Furies - elementals of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Metal. But now, the unity of the Alerians hangs in precarious balance.

    Story

    I liked this second book in the series. Kate Reading is getting better with every book. Things that she did in the first book that annoyed me I actually liked in this book. Jim, as always captures my imagination and makes me want to pick up a sword and join in. The only downside is the Crowsbeggoten Horns! For some unknown reason there are horns blowing at random intervals during the story, usually at key exciting parts of the story. I want the name and address of the person who made this decision so I can send them a Horn-O-Gram at interesting points of their life.
