The Dark Prophecy

This one was better than the first book. Let me just start with that. I already loved The Hidden Oracle – Apollo is an amazing narrator and how could I not be happy with an openly bisexual protagonist in a children’s fantasy book? The haikus for chapter titles continue in The Dark Prophecy, which is another thing I love. They perfectly show Rick Riordan’s deadpan and occasionally absurd humour. This book also contained more lesser known monsters and deities from Greek mythology, which is always a plus for a mythology nerd like me – though it also makes me faintly jealous of Rick Riordan’s knowledge – I’ll just have to remind myself that he must have done alot of research.

The Calling

It hooked me. Very much. It contained this extremely fast pacing that kept on tempting me to read chapter after chapter without having my body show any sign of tiring. Moreover, the pages ¬†flew by at such a rapid speed that I most likely unintentionally skimmed some sentences here and there. It was as if I had to read an express mode, otherwise I would have lost my pacing and wander behind the characters, This is a book that ¬†actually increased my heart rate.
