I just finished this book and HAD to write a review here. This book has one of the best storylines, especially as it nears the end of the novel. When I'd finished the book, I was left gasping with my hands on my head. It ends with what can only be described as one of the best, if not the best cliffhangers in a book that I have ever read! Not only does the book have a great storyline but it has a great author! Rick Riordan is an excellent author and stays true to the Greek myths which I think is appreciated greatly! The characters, locations and even objects are given the best description down to the tiniest detail. I cannot wait to get my hands on the third book and get stuck in!
