So, after the craziness that happened in The Red Pyramid, Carter and Sadie set out to ding the 3 books of Ra in order to awaken him. This is the only chance they have of defeating Apophis (Chaos). Along the way, Carter decides that he wants to go find Zia, which I was not liking the idea of (and Sadie agreed with me!) All this while trying some newbie magicians! Yay! New characters!
I really liked Walt and getting to know him. His history was very surprising though! I did not see that coming! And penguin-obsessed Felix was SO adorable! I was also very excited to finally meet Sadie's "mates!" It was great!
Zia, on the other hand, has not grown on me yet. I honestly dont see why Carter is so stuck on her! But I guess we'll see...
I loved all the new gods, too. I always enjoy learning something new when it comes to mythology. And Rick Riordan definitely does a fantastic job at that! And Set... he may be evil, but I like him! He is really funny!
As I mentioned already, I loved the dual POVs, the narration and recording style of the book, and of course the MYTHOLOGY! Carter and Sadie are fantastic leading characters and I've enjoyed coming along on this adventure with them, thus far. I especially loved seeing their brother-sister relationship grow. It was very sweet :)
And oh my gods! Another Percy Jackson shout-out! Why yes, I am a hue fan of PJ ;)
It is such a great series and I cannot wait to see what will happen next!
