** spoiler alert ** Okay, so I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3333333333

Except for stupid WHINY Piper. Ohmygosh, I thought I liked her in this book for like her first PoV...but then she started in "Ahhh! OHmygosh Jason's so much more handsome than Percy. Ahhhhh, why is Percy the leader, blah blah blah. Ahhhh, why can't Jason come out and break the rules with me? Ahhhh why is Percy such a rule breaker. Blah Blah blah!"

A) Because Percy is soo much cuter than Jason
B) Because Jason wasn't even around when Percy was saving the world the first times
C) Because your boyfriend's a wuss
D) Actually, Percy's about to save your butt, so I'd be quiet
E) Please, Rick Riordan kill off Piper. Please Please, I can't stand her!

Besides all that I DID Love it...

Until the end.

Then, I couldn't stand it.

I cried. I've only cried at a handful of books (most of them being Percy Jackson) and never at the movies. This book moved me, A LOT.


Okay, so here's what I think will happen/hope will happen:

-Maybe they didn't really fall. I know it's unlikely, but it just seems weird for Rick Riordan, after all he's put us and his characters through, to treat us/them like that. I'm pretty sure Percy's going to summon water or something and woosh them back up, or they'll get unsuspected help from a god.
Call it unrealistic, but a girl can dream.

-Nico/Rachel/Hazel/Frank/Percabeth POV is needed.

Nico because; He's the leader
Rachel because; I want to know what's going on at Camp Half Blood!
Hazel because; She's an AMAZING character, and we didn't have her POV in MoA!
Frank because; (see Hazel)
Percabeth because; if they did really fall, we at least need one of them to tell us what's going on in the Underworld.

I'm sad because I"m pretty sure HoH will just be a lot of "Ah, we're stuck in the Tarturus going crazy," with a lot of battle scenes, and "Oh no, how do we find Percy and Annabeth?"

Ugh. I hate that.^^^

Okay, more to come soon!!
