So! For those of you who might read this and are worried about reading ‘out of order’ if the Percy Jackson books didn’t seem interesting but this one does. Hate to say it, there’s things referenced in this book FROM the last Few of Percy Jackson, so, you might wanna go pick up the Percy Jackson books from your library.
That being said, there’s not a lot trying this book to the Percy Jackson books. It’s like….You get through Harry Potter, and there’s another Series set in the Same World with some of the Same Characters. Sort of Wizard College, but instead of following Harry, Your Following a New Kid from the background, one never mentioned before, as they make friends with Ron and Hermoine and the rest of the crew.
That’s pretty close to The Lost Hero here. It’s still Percy Jackson’s World, he’s still an element in it (for now, since he’s never given a speaking line in this book) but the book doesn’t follow him. So if you really don’t want to read the Percy Jackson books, you might be confused but you’ll be able to figure things out.
As for reaction time: OH MY GODS. O_O
SO much new stuff! And and and Secrets! And Another Prophecy! And NEW BAD GUYS O___O I can’t wait to see the other side of things! Curiosity Abounds!
