The trouble is, I read this right after Runemarks, and compared to that, Percy simply fell a bit short. Both books make a perfect "tandem read", as they have a lot in common: there is a young hero who is suddenly faced with a pantheon of gods that they thought fictional or at best long-forgotten, a hunt for mysterious artifacts, divine scheming and plotting and family secrets, and the threat of nothing less than the end of the world. But while Runemarks is told by an omniscient narrator, this is in Percy's own teenage voice, which makes for pleasant, simple and fun reading, but also for rather little depth.
Still, Percy's adventures are very entertaining, and it's a lot of fun to spot all the allusions to mythological creatures. I'd likely read the other installments of the series if I found them, but I'm not enthusiastic enough to actually put them on my wishlist. :)
