not for me
Um – first of all, what the heck is the cover supposed to be? Puny-looking-Carter and Set smashing a glowing yellow lemon? And peeps, I have been to Washington D. C. (because I AM American) and that is not how it looks. Anyways, CARTER WEILDS A KOLPESH WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE C U R V E D. By the way, the branding on the cover seems like whoever designed it just wanted to attract PJO fans by name-dropping Percy three times WHEN HE’S NOT EVEN IN THE BOOK.
WARNING: Small spoilers ahead.
This book was BORING. Partly because half of it was traveling in airplanes, spiritually, or with portals. But they were all separate so it wasn’t too bad.
Also, the main characters were sidetracked the WHOLE time and when they realized it it seemed like every effort was wasted. Also, is it just me or did they get out of trouble TOO easily?
Another reason in because in The Red Pyramid, Sadie and Carter took turns narrating – when they first did, it was okay because Sadie used her British accent heavily. But later in the book their voices blended together to the point where I had to look at the top of the page to figure out who was narrating.
Lastly, in the Magic Salsa Incident all Carter did was slice open containers of salsa while Sadie just blew up things. Same with the Land of the Dead where Sadie just answered a bunch of Anubis’s questions while Carter just stood in another place wondering where they went. (Read before about what I said about them getting out of trouble too easily.)
I guess this book wasn’t too bad, I guess, but it still is one of my least favorite RR books.

It is an excellent book! Rick Riordan has successfully managed to introduce the ancient Egyptian gods in the modern world.
He is brilliant as he knows all about Greek, Roman and Egytian mythology and has made them entertaining and mysterious, broadening our mind. Hats off to him!

This is a great book using the real world but mixed with a fantasy world absolutely perfect.

Carter and Sadie Kane are siblings that have special, magical powers in them! Their parents are magicians and Carter and Sadie find out that in a trip to the British museum.
