I tried to read the book but it wasn't very interesting to me cause most of the book didn't make since because everything happened so fast tht you can't exactly keep up with what is going on and then you get confused! Tht is why I wouldn't recommend this book. Rick Riordan is a GREAT author though but this book didn't fit me very much. I would prefer "Witch and Wizard" By: James Patterson instead of this book. :( Sorry if you don't agree but this is my opinion about the book.
