The Curse of Hera

Mythology gets real at Camp Hercules . . .

The last thing Logan wants to do with his entire summer is go to some fake mythology-themed camp, but that's exactly what he's stuck doing. When he gets there, it's even worse than he imagined. Each bunk has to re-enact one of the twelve labors of Hercules, sword fighting and all. The whole thing is ridiculous . . . at least he th

It's a rip off. Any Percy Jackson fan who can't see that is a fake fan. ...more

The moment you say that you like GREEK mythology but the name of the camp is Hercules who is a roman God
Heracles is Greek and Hercules Is Roman
For me it looks to much like Percy Jackson so for me is this a no

Real Rating: 2.75/5 Stars

Look it's not that bad.....but let's just say.....plot and characters isn't the book's strong suit

edit: I decided to change my rating of this book to 2.5 because after filming my review, I realized I didn't like it that much besides the okay writing style

I'm not gonna waste much more energy on this trainwreck of a book.

The characters in this book are all horrible in their own way. Logan is a massive jerk through the entire book. So self centered, hypocritical and just flat out dumb as hell. Harper is so unforgettable, I'm not even joking when I say I forgot her name half the time. Daniel is just a big coward with really nothing to offer except some bad mythological facts and dumb facial expressions.

Can't wait to never have to think about Logan

I'm sorry, but this is just a Percy Jackson ripoff. The one question I had was is this a Greek or Roman camp? It says Greek mythology, but the camp is called Camp Hercules. Like what? If you're gonna do a Greek Mythology book, get the right mythology. Hercules is Roman, NOT Greek. ...more

Reminds me of that meme that goes:
Me: Mum, can I buy the Percy Jackson books?
Mum: We have Percy Jackson at home.

Blatant PJO ripoff, and unfortunately not a good one. Plot development and characterisation especially leave much to be desired. As many others have mentioned, was any research about Greek Mythology even done? (Hercules, really?)

Plagiarism, mockery, idc what you call it but it's a disgrace. Off to reread the original to cleanse my eyes.

This is a blatant copy of Percy Jackson.

I’m not even exaggerating on that.

Save yourself the money. Go outside and jump. You’ll have a better chance of getting anywhere near Olympus than with this POS.

This is plain plagiarism. Who in their right mind would want to read bootleg Percy Jackson. The mythology isn’t even accurate, not in the slightest.

I thought this book was pretty good overall. It was a little hard to get into, but once you get into the story you can’t put it down. Their are several twists, but I half expected most of them. If you enjoyed Percy Jackson this is right down your ally. The main character, Logan, reminds me of Percy in several ways. He’s thrown into a Greek Mythology filled world , his best friend, Daniel, knows a ton about Greek Mythology, and his other best friend, Harper, is smart, witty, and intelligent. Over ...more

If I had a child that was too young for Percy Jackson this might be the book for them. However as an avid Percy Jackson fan who can read those books and love it even at 22 this book is way too juvenile to the point where I couldn’t really start it. The first two chapters were pretty rushed, whilst Percy Jackson’s opening it didn’t feel rushed it felt nicely paced. The character seems to want to have Percy Jackson’s humor but falls very short. Honestly I feel like the writing not only is it juven ...more
Oh my gods this makes me cringe just thinking about it. I found this when I looked up "The Hammer of Thor" on google, you know, the one by RICK RIORDAN. I will never buy this book. Any Percy Jackson fan who can't tell this is a rip off is a fake fan. I mean just look at the cover! Rick Riordan would be ashamed. ...more

If you liked the Percy Jackson series, you will like this book. It has many similar things, monsters, a camp, and demigods, but also has some characteristics of its own
Jul 26, 2020 rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
Very similar to the early Percy Jackson books, but perhaps a slightly earlier reading level. 2.75 stars.

Good adventur e

This a very good adventure novel. It didn't need the Percy Jackson or Harry potter references and can stand on its own
