I honestly don't know what took me so long to read the Percy Jackson series, but man I am SO glad that I did. Each book after the first one just kept getting better and better. Rick Riordan knows how to write a hell of a book and this one, was pretty much an amazing ending to an amazing series. The whole Percabeth thing going on was freaking cute! The books are just so well written and the story is there. Full of action and you keep coming back for more and more. I'm a little embarrassed to admit I read the last three books all in a matter of two days.. but yes that should tell you just how good of a series this is. I'm excited to start The Heroes of Olympus because I already know that I'm going to love it.. probably even more than this series! Everyone should give Percy a read, you definitely will NOT regret it!
