Great book, I wish I would have read this a long time ago when I was in middle school haha, but I'm glad I finally read it. I loved the writing style and all of the action. The sort of twist at the end was fantastic! I had never read anything that had to do with the Greek myths, and I felt this was a good introduction. I was worried that I would not be able to follow since I was not familiar with the myths, but I felt the author explained them just enough to provide background without it being boring. Wonderful story and hopefully I will get around to the second one sometime soon!
