I would say this is one of the best books ever! Demigods go on a lot of funny and dangerous adventures!
This book has many different story in it! You will find out about what happened to a kid who served in Krounoses army. Many other demigods fight monsters! Hope you enjoy this
For fans of these series, this is the book that explains a lot of those loose ends.
It's nice to know how things came to be what they were.
This book offers different narrators and they were all good.
clever, imaginative, creative
We liked the last story written by Rick's son. Amazing that a 16-year-old wrote it!
These short stories by Rick Riordan are great additions to his novels. We've enjoyed reading each one that he's created.
Designer. Aviation Enthusiast. Fitness Instructor. Love books. Prefer long series with happy endings in mystery, comedy, fantasy, & romance.
Yes, absolutely just not one like this. This isn't like the normal 1st person book. It reads like a mixed diary on the ledge of being close to the other story. It's not as interesting, powerful or adventurous. It gives you insights to the characters though but the narrator jump isn't nearly as smooth. It's confusing and the book seems to jump around a lot.
Write the book as a follow up story or adventure the same way the other books are written. This one seems like a hodge podge throw together of scenes cut out from the other books.
It just doesn't have a familiar feel to the other books. I didn't enjoy it. It didn't grab me the same way the other two did.
The adventures jump around too much and doesn't really get you into the characters as quickly. He starts drawing you into stories and then jumps to another like a short story reading. The narrators are also very important to an audio book. Jumping back and forth vs. using them all together makes it hard to connect to the book plus I'd just gotten used to the last narrator of the other books. I belive he was the same narrator who reads the nymph section with leo. Having new narrators start the book also makes it hard to connect.
This book is a total fail. Yes, it sheds some interesting light on the background. But it only selects a few situations of the many hundreds that the group of demigods had been through and both series. And then it's only a little bit, not even enough to feel satisfied. I just felt like this book was rushed and then set aside. This book should be at least 5 to 6 times longer with a lot more information covered. It's supposed to be a diary. The best way to compare this book is like watching a SHORT trailer instead of the movie. The last 1/5 of the book was completely worthless. It was supposed to be from the perspective of the demigods on the side of Kronos but it had nothing to do with the war. It was just some story that tied into nothing.
The son of magic is the most amazing story I have ever herd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it is the extension to the Percy Jackson universe that I always wanted and I now have
The book really shows a bit more of Luke and why he did what he did. The end of the book also really explains how the mist works in an easily understood way. It also explains how the concept of magic works in all the previous percy jackson series .
Alabaster, because he explains the mist and he figures out solution to a problem that no one else could figure out, with the help of a human!
I like how Riordan himself narrates in the book also Nick Chamian is better than in the blood of olympus.
