Oh. My. Gods.
This book was everything I wanted and wished for!
Kronos has risen, Titans are crawling all over the place, and the propechy they’ve been yipping about to Percy is finally coming to fruition. The Camp Half-blood campers are trying to defend Camp Half-blood, New York city, AND Olympus as all the Gods are fighting battles of their own.
Zeus and a bunch of them are fighting the meanest of the mean: Typhon, Poseidon is fighting Oceanus and trying to save his kingdom under the sea, and Hades is…well, sitting it out because his brothers are buttheads to him most of the time.
I can’t even express to you the sheer nerdiness that ensued while I read this book. First it was leisurely reading, then it turned into me avoiding the book because the battle was making me antsy. I swear I was getting heart palpations. And then once I powered through the rest of it was just amazingness beyond belief!
Rick Riordan has made it into my favourite author’s and I cannot wait to read the other two books he has out. (Not about Percy or his friends though, I think.)
Love. Just, love.
