When I first read the *Percy Jackson* series, I was a bit underwhelmed. I mean, I had heard so much about how amazing it was, and it seemed just such a let-down. It appeared to me to be, quite frankly put, a weaker ver of *Harry Potter*. Now, I know that isn't fair or accurate, but that was my first impression. While the second book in the series, *The Sea of Monsters*, helped to change my mind on this, it was still a bit underwhelming. Yes, this is not just a takeoff of *HP*, it is it's own special series. Not only are there a lot of differences beyond the surface-only similarities, but I learned recently (as of the writing of this review) that Riordan started writing this series before *HP* was published, so, yah, not based on *HP*. So critics who use this argument, including *myself* at first, are just silly. I'm admitting I was an idiot, I said, though, the second book still didn't quite wow me. The whole narrative felt like basically an endless series of cliff-hangers with small to no hero development and not enough plot. The cliff-hangers seemed to be far more numerous than most quest books in fantasy settings. Now, this isn't to say that I didn't have fun the first two volumes, but just that they didn't quite (other than some interesting items such as likable characters and references to myths) *do* it for me, so to speak. This third book, however, really did create me a major *Percy Jackson* fan, and was absolutely a amazing read. The rest of the review will present e plot is simple. In a rescue mission to save two fellow demi-gods, Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and their fresh mate Thalia, encounter trouble. Though they save the twin half-bloods, Annabeth goes missing, and to create matters worse, so does a strong goddess ally, Artemis.Of course, a quest is in order. But the questions are rather more complicated than one might think in this case. Normally, these quests are, of course, quite dangerous. But in this case, the sense of danger, really the *fact* of danger, is more persistent. Because a prophecy from the Oracle is that at least two of the members of the quest will not create it back alive...While the plot is relatively straight-forward at first, the narrative and plot developments this time were quite a bit more complicated. Not only did Riordan expand on the mythology of the series, and the connections to Classical Greek myths, but the structure was different. Gone was the nearly every chapter cliff-hanger, with the accompanying desperate rushes from one danger to the next, one clue to the next. In it's put was a slower and more long-term story n't obtain me wrong. The sense of excitement and adventure was just as strong, but the story was a better one in this way. This is because there was more time taken to spend more time exploring the characters and their thoughts and the world-building, as well as both delving into the past of this globe and laying down groundwork for future plots. This all was a net plus for the book and created it far, *far* better than the cluded in this are tidbits that respond the huge questions that some might have, including, why, oh why, do the Olympians not *do* anything to remedy these issues themselves. Well, the respond is that they are a) kinda personality-driven, and this interferes with some proactiveness, as they have their own items to attend to and their personalities dictate this, and b) related, they are *busy*. Not only do they have the duties they have always had, but they are also dealing with the fact that the coming hostilities with the forces of Kronos are causing other supernatural gods and god-like beings to cause issues that create their jobs harder. For that matter, there is a delicate power balance that too much action on the part of *anyone* will e reason I liked this one as well is that the characters are kinda coming into their own and beginning to grow up. Annabeth is becoming more mature and able to forgive and see others' points of view more. Meanwhile, Percy is faster on his feet where he can handle things without constant directions. Though he still isn't the strategist that Annabeth is, and thus doesn't do as well as when he's teamed up with her, he still acquits himself over, though, is a disappointment here. He's reduced to small more than comic relief. That annoys me in that while he was the weakest member of the quest, he's still a knowledgeable and capable guy. Or should be. I hope that he gets more impressive again in coming books.I can't say much about other characters so as to not give away their roles, but just to say that Riordan does a amazing job with fleshing out their characters and arcs in a method that really makes them vivid to the reader and gets you to care about them.I can honestly say now that I really have fun this series and that it has become one of my favorites.Highly Recommended.Rating: 5/5 Stars.
The House of Hades was another enjoyable addition to the Heroes of Olympus series. This one wasn’t my favorite of the series but I still really liked it. I always have fun Riordan’s take on Greek and Roman mythology.Okay. So. There are a ton of characters that can be discussed because this series has SO MANY main characters. While I have fun the diversity and depth of the cast, I do admit that it can obtain a bit overwhelming for the reader at times jumping between the differing perspectives. Especially because you are going to have fun certain perspectives more than others. I know there were times where I wanted to speed through certain characters to obtain back to my favorites.Obviously Percy is still my favorite perspective and character. I mean how could he not be? We have been through so a lot of books with Percy now. As readers we have watched him become a legendary hero, so how can I not be attached. I kept wanting to obtain back to his and Annabeth’s chapters because those two were the two I was most invested in. Other than Percy though, I also really enjoyed Leo. He is just so funny and I really have fun his sense of humor. Oh and Nico. He is such a grumpy small demigod but I’ve really taken a liking to him lately and I want he would allow these guys in. All of these guys on this quest are so amazing and I love how all the differing personalities have come together.I do need to take a second to complain about the Roman camp though because damn they are so dumb. I don’t understand how so a lot of dumb people can all be in one group. It is blatantly obvious that there is something huge going on, but all Octavian and them can focus on is fighting a useless war with Camp Halfblood. Maybe I’m just protective of Camp Halfblood but the Roman Camp really aggravates always I enjoyed the Greek and Roman mythology interwoven into the stories. I like that Riordan seems to be focusing more on the more ancient and lesser known beings this time around. It really switches things up and it’s nice to not see the same gods and goddesses e House of Hades is a amazing read and a amazing addition to the series. It has definitely set the scene for an epic conclusion and I can’t wait to see where it all goes.
The application is great, the issue is it's more like a shortcut program. A lot of the links go to the website, FB links, Tumblr. Another android game I follow, I check all their social media websites automatically. The D&D application is just a browser folder for other websites that obtain updated with fresh editions and articles. I also appreciate the comedy, and articles on everything D&D, Neverwinter PC, but I'm wanting meatier content. Hints & Tricks for running android games better, running encounters, making more interesting PCs etc.
I have fun the content, and appreciate the work place into bringing these problems for free. However, I've not once been able to one of the Best of DM's Clan adventures. The always fails. Edit: scrolling through the recent news section always sends me to one of the links without me clicking on it. I have had this problem with two various phones now.
Have fun reading the digital magazine. I was having the same connection problems as those who have posted before me where the application said I had unstable internet connection. I uninstalled the app, removed it from my library and then booted my phone in recovery mode clearing my cache. After re-downloading Dragon+ the application was usable once more. Hope this helps some of those who are having connection problems but have full wireless connection or 4g.
