First and foremost AAAARGH!!! What a spot to end at! Mean and entirely unfair!

Okay, now that that's over with... I quite enjoyed the book, even though it wore me out with worry over everything happening in it. The book was also very funny as I've come to expect and love from this series and the original Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I look forward to finding out how everything will resolve.

And now, for the nitpicks... If it takes nine days to fall to the bottom (top?) of Tartarus, Percy and Annabeth would have died of thirst before they got there at the beginning of the book. The human body can only go three days without water. They may be demigods, but they are mortal and you can't escape biology. I realize this is fantasy and they are special, but my logic meter went ACK on this and wouldn't let it go. In this series, the gods are injured and spill ichor all over the place. Ichor is lethal to mortals and kill them within a mile of where it falls. It won't hurt demigods that I know of, but mortals would be dead where the gods are bleeding.
