This is your last warning. Seriously, if you haven't read the book, why are you even here?
Okay. I knew since a very long time that Jason was gonna die (see:SPOILERS). However that didn't make it any the less tear-jerking when it happened. I think his death proves as a major catalyst in apollo's character arc. I know, I just said that he is really annoying, but in the end i can't deny the fact that he is a changed person. If you'll see, in the past two books, the book ended with something like I have to do this to become a God again, or something like that. This book ended on an emotional note. 'I will remember '. This is why I love uncle Rick. He can crack a joke or make some sassy remark as easily as he can breathe and still make us cry.
I hope tyrant's tomb is even better.
I would've given this book a five star rating but the book itself was not in a good condition. Amazon has always given me books in wonderful condition. Just hope Amazon is careful next time.
Now the spoilers: jason grace died in a way that made me feel the impact. Honestly I found him the worst charecter among the 7 heroes. But the way Rick wrote about his fight with the third emperor! A death had not struck the fate of a herosince the percy jackson series....his death brought realism to the series...meg got a lot of character development which is always welcome. Lester's character ark has been phenomenal...he changed the most this book.
It is the third book in the series and is a favorite in the series. It is definitely a emotional roller coaster....
I almost cried when leo (my favorite character) asked- "where is Jason?"

spoil and complain about later) and the new characters add fun depth. The villains are very good making you want to hate them, and all in all its a great page turned as always. As for why I dropped this one star though (this is the little spoiler bit next)
SPOILER the reason for the drop in star is for the treatment of Jason Grace, he is in the book for less than about 70 pages, and in that time we find out that piper dumps him, he then accidental uses lightning on someone that alerts guards, acvidently blows meg out a window and finally gets killed (and not in a heroic way in my opinion). Jason is not my favourite character but I did like him and this seemed a fairly poor way for him to go, my hope is there's some plan to bring him back or have him help in the underworld or something, cause this was honestly a bad way for the character to be treated, especially since it seems like every one else from the previous books is sorting out how they will live the rest of their lives or getting some proper send off
so I have noticed that each book has had a recurring theme within it: the first book was Everyone You Love, the second was Everyone Is Gay, and the third is Everyone Dies. The rate these are going, i’ll be surprised if anyone gets through the series unscathed!
However, as I said about everyone dying, Rick has grown up in his way of dealing with it. In the past books, the characters that have died have been minor, with little to no character development; or they had a Get Out Of Jail Free card *cough* Leo *cough*. In this book, when the one of the characters died, Rick honestly got the tragedy and pain spot on; i was crying my eyes out. It did not help that he chose to remind us with a coffin, later on (i started crying again). Another thing I enjoyed was that Piper had even more character development and showed that not everyone has a “happily ever after”, it was nice to see that, like real life, things don’t always go to plan, and shit happens.
Rick dedicated this book to the muse of tragedy, and, by the gods, he gave us plenty of that.
also it might not be the best of your books but its still better then any other books by different authors.
please do a book 4!
Sometimes I just wanted to skip a few chapters. Reading this book, I was mostly bored
Rick definetely took the "More people should die" comments seriously but <spoiler> Jason died in the worst way possible and I was crying my eyes out. Most of the characters who died in ricks books were minor or came back to life *cough* Leo *cough* but even though Leo isnt like, a main character or my favorite one his death really upset me.
