A Difficult Review to Write

I liked Riordan's middle-age books. I feel like he does an excellent job writing for that gender and age group. And I LOVE Leo and Nico. They make this book FUN. This one was no exception in that department (I did feel like it was a tad bit overlong with the Percy/Annabeth story). Do you feel like there's a big "But" coming? It's not so much as "But" as "Information to consider..."
So, here goes.

***SPOILERS AND STRONG PERSONAL OPINIONS BELOW***

There is a revelation about a character that we all know and love, a forced exit from the closet, if you will.

For the record, I have several friends and am an avid fan and respecter of many persons who feel same-gender attraction. I like how Riordan portrays this character, giving respectful insight into the difficulties and emotional hardships that he faces. Learning to understand these things is crucial to a development of compassion for others.

I love the line from one of the other characters, regarding the revelation. He tells this young man that it's his life, he can choose.

As a Christian, I want to let the record show that I believe that we are all children of God. We can all choose. We can choose to live the laws set by God's servants in the Bible and enjoy true happiness. This applies to me. Even though I don't suffer from same-gender attraction, that doesn't mean that I couldn't find myself attracted to men who are married which is a violation of a commandment. However, it's what I do in response to that attraction that determines my standing before God.

I like this book (apart from the length). However, the amount of people that I refer this book to will definitely be affected by the final installment of the series.

I love Rick Riordan's writing style and The Heroes of Olympus series is my second favorite of all his series. I love mythology and he does a great job of bring any and all mytholgy to life in a fresh and new way. I find the characters to be engaging and to feel really real. I love how he weaves the mythology into modern times so you feel like you are learning something as you are being entertained. ( )

Incredible is not strong enough of a word to describe how I feel about this book. It was difficult for me to put it down - which is true of all of the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus books I've read thus far, but even more true with this installment. Riordan continues to seamlessly integrate rich stories of mythology with the lives and adventures of the demigods. But this one is where I felt so many of the characters came into their own. There are great personal challenges for several of The Seven (and others) and so much growth and character development. As the penultimate book of the series, I thought Riordan did a great job of presenting this epic part of their adventure whilst also setting up what is likely to be an even more epic final battle.

Do I really have to wait until October to find out how it all ends?? ( )

Riordan never ceases to amaze me! I fell In love with this series about 6 years ago and each book is always better than the one before it :) I read a nasty rumor on Tumblr before the book came out and all it said was 'will people still ship Percabeth?' giving me the impression that one of THEM was gay and that Percabeth wasn't going to be a thing anymore. Which was friction' terrifying since they are meant to be! So Yeah, thank go that wasn't true and that Percabeth is going strong ( )

I continue to love this series for vast and wide reasons, and this book was just another penny in the tin for Rick where comes to me. I continue to love all the groups, the things they go through, the choices they made. I'm glad Rick took a stand on the controversial issue he did, because I think there need to be more LBGT characters in every single type of YA fiction out there.

I'm holding out breathlessly for the next book in this series and the conclusion to it all. ( )
