Not as good as Percy Jackson

by teacherinoz (WorldCat user published 2011-08-13) Good Permalink

One more time Rick Riordan takes us back to mythology. The Kane siblings are smart, have personalities. But the story is far from being addictive and surely could use a bit more mystery. But I'm giving the series a chance and will buy the next volume hoping it will improve.
