Joseph Johnston asked Rick Riordan:

Hello sir, I would like to ask you two questions concerning your series with Percy Jackson. One: who do you like better, Percy Jackson or Jason Grace, and why? Secondly, did this influence you not putting Percy Jackson as the main hero in the "Heroes of Olympus" series? Thank you for your time, and I eagerly await "The Sword of Summer" this October! Respectfully yours, Joseph Johnston

Rick Riordan Really not fair to compare Jason to Percy. Obviously everybody will choose Percy because he's had his own series. Same with the point of view in Heroes. It's about seven different characters. That's the whole point of the story. It would make no sense to have it be 100% about Percy all from his POV. I've already written a series like that, PJO. Heroes was meant to be something different.
