About the Book
“Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we're related for better or for worse...and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum.”
I pretty much absorbed this book in one sitting. Unlike the first book, there’s no need to waste time explaining things. So it pretty much gets straight into the story.
In this story we get introduced to Tyson, Percy’s half brother. That is important in that it shows how even Poseidon got it on all the days. The Greek gods were crazy, and I like that the author stays pretty true to them. And although I do like Tyson, he is clearly the replacement for Grover. Which brings me to another point; I was disappointed by the lack of Grover. Not to say he isn’t in this book, because he is. But he’s not in it enough. Basically I need a spin off series about him. Does that exist? It should.
Most importantly of all, I can’t believe my kid is only 6. I really want him to read this series. I need to make a goodreads shelf titled, “Things for the spawn to read”.
