This week's book is The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan.
I know, I know, I'm just now reading it. I would have liked to have gotten to it when it came out in October, but I just couldn't find the time. So many books and all that.
I've loved some of Rick's openings. While this one did make me curious, I didn't think it was his best.
Jason hated being old.
Yes, I know, I'm getting to be a bit of a first line snob. That's good if you know the characters and series, but it's not the best overall.
I'm not too far past page 56, but here's a great quote from that page.
Their first shadow-travel experience together, two days ago, had been a total fiasco, possibly the most humiliating episode in Reyna's long career. Perhaps someday, if they survived, they would look back on it and laugh, but not now. The three of them had agreed never to speak of it. What happened in Albania would stay in Albania.
And no, I don't know if Albania comes up again in the story, but I had to laugh at that paragraph.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
