“I try not to think. It interferes with being nuts"
Seven demigods are sent on a fatal quest across land and seas to Rome- the ancient lands where the monstrous power is too strong to defeat. On their way, terrifying surprises, deadly attacks and horrifying discoveries await them.
Honestly, this book is like a journey on a roller coaster. Yes, it was amazing but also terrifying at the same time. When I finally finished it, I was so exhausted.
The attacking-the-demigods parts, fighting the monsters parts left me at the edge of my seat. I couldn't stop turning the pages.Those scenes mess up your brain first, make you think that there is no way out, and then the characters come up with such an obvious solution that you agree with yourself that you're plain stupid.
Since it's Rick we talking about how can we miss sarcasm and humour. It was there. More than ever. I think it's not safe to read Rick's book in public because you're giving the people a chance to identify you as a psychopath.
This was the most intense book in the series so far. I was thinking of reading the next book later, but the ending of this book forces me to pick up the next one. The ending was so unpredictable that my jaw literally hit the floor.
No matter what fandom you belong to, if you read books, please don't miss this one. Definitely a must-read.
