Read in March, 2012

I finished the first book in this series not really sure how much I wanted to continue on -- I knew that I would (eventually), but I definitely wasn't hooked. Then came a slow day at work, so I picked up the second book and read the whole thing over the course of my shift. As soon as I was finished, I put in my request for the third one.

I can't quite pinpoint the difference between the first and second books. The second one moves faster and you get much more caught up in the adventure of it. I was worried that the different authors might be grating, but I found the transition between them to be very smooth. You do notice the difference in style (the first book was very true to Rick Riordan's style, and Gordon Korman just doesn't write the same way), but not in a way that disturbs the story at all. In fact, maybe most people wouldn't even notice it to begin with.

I am excited now to see where the story goes, as well as to see how yet another author takes on the story.
