So first post it i put in the book was on the dedication ...

i literally fangirled so hard reading that, The funny Chapter headers are back and as brilliant as ever. This was such a good book Rick Riordan has done it again he has made me fall in love with a mythological world this time the Norse Mythology, Magnus is sassy and a fun character POV to read from. Even his sword has sass and we also have some really lovely Magnus/Annabeth family bonding there is a lot of action and suspense as well, i wouldn't call this middle grade there is a lot more YA humour in this then his other books like
"the waist deep water was so cold i imagined i would be singing soprano for the rest of the week."
 Its really difficult not to spoil the story line of this book because its so intertwined with my feeling for the book so all i am going to say is it was a really good first book in a series and i cannot wait to carry on with this series.

Until Next Time
Happy Reading
