To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
God knows how Riordan does it, but somehow he writes impossibly good books. This unmatched book is a must read for all fans and non-fans of Riordan (though the only non-fans are people who have not read it). All in all, BEST BOOK EVER!!!
The Crown of Ptolemy isn't the best in my opinion. It's good don't get me wrong, but it just seemed a bit flat and "the battle" (if you could call it that) seemed like it was over far too quickly. Reading the Demigods and Magicians mini series has certainly made me want to re-read the Percy Jackson series!
If you like the Percy Jackson series and the Kane chronicles, this book is ideal for you. Great imagination, good pace, intriguing combination of greek and Egyptian themes, and finally, known good old characters. All in all a good book to read on a rainy afternoon.
Brilliant book, I love the short series as they combine both of Rick Riordan's most well known books. The only fault that I can find with the series is that the books are quite short, which is why I gave it four stars. All in all though, I love the books, I hope that more of them are written.
