A need to read for all Percy Jackson fans or any reader in fact. Rick has done it again. A humorous book but still tense. Lester is amazing. I have been reading Trials Of Apollo since it first came out. Can't wait for the Tower of Nero next fall. If you want to read this book, make sure you have read all the books of Percy Jackson and Heroes Of Olympus. The characters link with the previous books. Even though it dosen't link with this series, I still think Magnus Chase N Kane Carter are a must read for all Percy Jackson fans out there.
