Percy learns that Camp Half-Blood is in trouble and that Luke and his army is going to invade soon. So he goes on a quest with his friends to try and stop this.
Oh Percy Percy Percy. This is where we part ways. The previous 3 tales kept me entertained, but 4 seems to be my limit.
This wasn’t a bad book, it was just the exact same as the previous 3. Percy goes on a quest, his friends go with, there is some tension between Percy and Annabeth, friend(s) goes missing, they meet a god, friends turn up, they meet a god, they beat the baddy.
I am just so tired of the same story line over and over. But what also got to me was that I feel there is no character growth at all. Percy is still so blind he can’t see Annabeth likes him, Annabeth is a complete bitch when anyone (aka Rachel) even looks at Percy, or *gasp* someone calls Rachel pretty. Oh no it is over I am not the only girl in the story anymore, how will I got on. Then there is the fact that she keeps on thinking Luke will reform, because surely Luke would never do this, Luke would never hurts us (because I also have a crush on him)
The above might be a bit petty of me, but wow I found myself rolling my eyes the whole time. I felt like nothing was original or even exciting for that matter. I don’t know what I was expecting. I know the characters are 15, I just wanted some variety and some character growth.
