  • Another home run for Riordan

    This second book has even more laughs/action/danger/heartbreak than the first book. Commodus, one of the three evil emperors Apollo must face, is the worst "monster" in all the Riordan books, for me. In history, he was the son of Marcus Aurelius, one of the greatest and wisest of the Roman rulers. This book shows Commodus as reacting violently against his father's pacifism, and in real history, Commodus destroyed the Pax Romana in twelve years, 180-192 C.E. Once again Meg McCaffrey steals the show, since this series is really more about her. It's great to be reunited with Leo Valdez and Thalia Grace as well--but Meg is the real sparkplug of this series. I'm finding the action in the series is more violent than in the other Riordan books, a real reflection of just how corrupt the three evil Roman emperors are [Nero, Commodus, and Caligula]. Still, compared to what most middle school students see in their video games, Riordan never makes the violence gratuitous.

    I love how they bring Grover back. I have missed him ever since the last Olympian.

  • Great book!

    This book is very interesting, tons of plot twists that were unpredictable, although at some points in the book, I felt like it was dragging on and took a while to get to the climax. Though, it has lots of humorous moments and will make you sad as well. I highly recommend this book.

  • Recommended for kids 10 and over!

    Such a great plot, teaches young readers about Greek an Roman mythology. If you like action and adventure, you will certainly enjoy this! If you haven't read Heros Of Olympus, or Percy Jackson, go read them first.

    Thanks for your feedback!
