My rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ of 5!
Should be read after you finish Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
If all the text books I had to read in school were written by Rick Riordan, I might have paid better attention! Mythology, sagas, legends etc. have always fascinated me, and I remember searching through our local library weekly, to find new books to satisfy my thirst for these stories.
“So Aphrodite married Hephaestus and the celebrity ship Aphrophaestus completely dominated Olympian tabloid news for like a thousand years. Did they live happily ever after? HAHAHAHAHA. No.”
I know I’m just repeating myself here, but you honestly won’t find better books about Greek Mythology than the ones where Percy takes the narrating seat.
“His big claim to fame was that the Golden Fleece—that magical sheepskin rug I’m related to—ended up in his kingdom, which made the place immune to disease, invasion, stock-market crashes, visits from Justin Bieber and pretty much any other natural disaster.”
Personally, I think it would be best to save this book till you’ve finished Percy Jackson and the Olympians & Heroes of Olympus. Some of the characters Percy introduces in this book are creatures we meet later on, so if you read this too early it can be a bit of a spoiler!
