Recommended for: Everyone, duh

Oh.My.Gods. I loved it! A whole year of waiting and it all comes down to this book. Well, it was so worth the wait. I was so excited to see the seven come together and kiss some badasses. I loved the four different points-of-view, the gods we meet here, the new villains… GAH! I loved everything in this book!

Although I was annoyed by some parts where there would be a dialogue and something interrupts it when it gets to the most important part. I just wish Mr. Riordan stops doing that now. Nevertheless, I still loved it.

I also loved how the ending was written. It was a cliffhanger, that doesn’t seem like a cliffhanger at all, but left me wanting the next book which makes it a cliffhanger, BAH! Go read it yourselves. Riordan doesn’t disappoint.

full review here:

Oh geez. What now? Writing this in the middle of the night on my phone (yes, sneaking) because I cannot frikkin wait for that damn book to come out! I bet Annabeth won't be on that ship!
Remember? 'wisdom's daughter walks alone'. She probably went to Rome ahead of them to check out the Pope or something. Anyway. 6 (i think) of the 7 are revealed and we're just waiting for Rick to tell us if Annabeth is one of them. Gah! I just cannot wait!

--UPDATE (04/14/2012)--

SERIASSLY, must we endure a couple more months for this book to come out!? I need the cover ASAP.

Really! And I think Annabeth is on the ship. But yeah, the wisdom's daughter walks alone line is sort of scary.

Aurora Nifty idea.

check out the pope?!

Aurora Knowing Annabeth, she probably has her own idea of what to do, but won't tell anyone. That, or it's Chiron's idea, and she's checking it out for him.

Kiapet technically, the pope is in Vatican. Just saying.

themikko Oops. She went to Rome then got a connecting flight to the Vatican. Cake.

John she is on the ship its odd because RR let piper charmspeak again :( or is it good? :}

Aurora I don't think it's odd. I think Piper's Charmspeak will be important, like it's been thus far. Otherwise, she wouldn't have it.

themikko Omg guys! The cover is here! Come celebrate with me!

Aurora I know! It's awesome-ish...
