Review Detail4.5 3
The main problem with Reyna is that she has fallen in love with both Percy Jackson and Jason Grace, and both demigod superheroes have turned her down. That’s not to say she doesn’t have a lot to offer. Home girl is a praetor of Camp Jupiter, she’s a daughter of some feisty war god, and hundreds of Roman demigods have deemed her worthy enough to lead them into all sorts of life threatening battles. But for some reason, Percy and Jason just don’t see it and leave her hanging on by a romantically hopeless thread.
I sure hope that Riordan has something good in store for this girl, because for now, she just keeps getting the short end of the stick. I’m not used to a situation where I am still left feeling sorry for a character at the end of a book. Normally all their problems have been wiped out or dealt with in some fashion, but not for poor Reyna. I can't wait to see how her life plays out in the next book.
In terms of how this book stacks up with the other Percy Jackson adventures, it's classic Riordan. That is to say, it's a fun read, and I definitely recommend it!
