If you haven't started reading Rick Riodran's Heroes of Olympus series yet, you are missing out. I was skeptical at first because I loved the original Percy Jackson series so much, I didn't want to be disappointed. But I was pleasantly surprised that the Heroes of Olympus series is just as good as the original Percy Jackson series. Book 3 comes out in just a few weeks and I CANNOT WAIT!!!! Have you pre-ordered yours yet? Make sure you do!
