There were parts of this book I didn't love which accounts for the 4 star review. However, those parts were likely intended for a younger audience say around the ages of nine or ten. That isn't to disparage the book any as I continue to love it, but just not as much as book one. Rick Riordan continues to be too clever for his own good and for as comical and wacky as this book gets, ish gets real too! The reader is definitely marching right along with Percy as he gets closer to fulfilling a prophecy that will not end well. Speaking of endings, this book's ending leaves me no choice but to rush to Half-Price Books tonight to get my hands on the next in the series and hopefully I will find all the books there in a pretty row waiting just for me...for that is my destiny!
