    I suppose, it gives you more detail than the Game of Thrones TV series.

    The next sentence is the
    truth. The previous sentence
    was a lie.

    Never read it. I'm recharging from writing shorts as practice for my novel(s) and as far as reading--I'm pleased with Heroes of Olympus

    Wrong section bud. This belongs in the Konoha Library Subforum.

    These aren't light novels so be ready for some in depth reading. But yes worth the read although the show does the books justice all things considered

    A strong willed hard head, an antisocial short-fuse, a comic relief jackass and big-hearted Mr. No-Self-Esteem are 4 male steryotype heros that are evolved and grow in sync with and because of their 4 equally important heroine love interests (calm & colective yet shy, loving & patient yet fearful, hardass & over-diciplined and *Miss Shining Star that falls apart*).

    Alternate planet, alternate timeline, MASSIVE map (that kindah feels like a wannabe LotR Middle Earth) with a LOT of various terrain, architecture & landscapes. High stakes that get even larger as time progresses with MEAN cliffhangers at the end of the second, third and fourth novels (5 in total).

    It's the second series of the Percy Jackson novels. He's "A" character but he's not the MAIN character. You need to read the first 5 first--but they're all fun.

    Don't judge if you've seen the movies--they suck and are brainless, but that's the exact opposite of the books.

    They are definitely worth reading but I'd say at this point your better off with just watching the show.

    Because that's where you'll be able to see the ending first because there's zero chance he'll write 2 more books before the shows done will be lucky if get 1 more book before the ending.

    And to be honest I feel like the last book wasn't that good and it was a chore to get through it. And I think they handled certain things in the show a lot better than in the books.
