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.

The narrator was really annoying, especially in the last part, he sounded too much like he was trying to imitate Leonard Nimoy.
You can skip this book entirely, it is not necessary for the Heroes of Olympus series.
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.
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.
