Reading is my number one passion in life. I am a humble book blogger and I *always* have something to say about books!
I am a HUGE fan of the Percy Jackson series, but this first book of it's spin-off, The Heroes Of Olympus, was a disappointment.
I liked some of the new characters (Leo) more than others (Jason), and while the story felt very much in line with the PJ world, the story just felt a little flat to me. Because I wasn't a fan of the main character, it was hard to root for him the way I did with Percy and his friends. And that made a huge difference in the enjoyment factor for me.
I kept picking this book up and then walking away from it for months at a time, something else I never would have done with any of the original PJ books. I am thankful that Percy is back in book 2, and because of that, I'm hoping this series bounces back from such a ho hum start.
