I have enjoyed all of Rick Riordan's books. I pre-read for my children and have been amazed with his skills. I'm a very tough reader on a writer. I over examine style, prose, and story. I have loved his books.

I purchased the first book of this series to listen to on our road trip for Spring Break. After 12 hours of driving we had only less than an hour left and they didn't want to get out of the car!! Very well written and read and my children enjoyed it so much we have purchased them all!! We are now on the 3rd book and listen to it every time we are in the car. This has also had a pleasant side affect of no more sibling squabbling while driving...lol

Mount Olympus is still with us, moving as the seat power in Western civilization moves it's now in America. The gods are still falling for mortal women and having half-blood children, the heroes whose battlefireld reflexes get them diagnosed with ADHD in the modern classroom.
The monsters, magical creatures, gods and young heroes are all well voiced in this gripping adventure. It adds to the fun if you've read the two previous books, but this adventure can stand on it's own.
Percy has been warned about his fatal flaw, and the prophecy that says a child of the gods will bring about thier defeat. Will he be that child?
