I'm so bad. I have the first 5 books and I still haven't finished the first one. OTL

I really need to read these.

You really need to. XDD It's such an amazing series, I guarantee it. I love it almost as much as Harry Potter, that's how good it is.

I actually think the overall series is better than HP, and I consider myself an HP fan.

I have indeed read MoA, and I think it's the best of the Heroes of Olympus arc so far.
The best posts I ever made were the ones I didn't make.

I read it and loved it! I agree that it's the best book in a great series. And Percabeth is just wonderful.

Percabeth is just such a great ship that every fan I know loves it. I've never heard otherwise.

Also, after Mark of Athena, I officially love Leo. He's my favorite new demigod.

spoiler (click to show/hide)Percabeth through hell is going to put me through shipper hell, in the best possible way

But you know, some people ship Rachel with Percy. If Rachel were a few years older I'd ship her with me actually.

And Leo, man oh man he's a cool dude. I relate a lot to him. He's my home skillet.

There weren't many, and even they were fine with Percabeth.

Yeah, you kinda remind me of him. 8D

spoilers (click to show/hide)Speaking of Leo, I'm kinda conflicted. I like Frank/Hazel and all, but after MOA, I can't help but like her with Leo too, maybe even a little more.

Oh and I still don't give a crap about Piper/Jason.

That's true.

And I will take that as a high compliment 8D.

spoilers (click to show/hide)As much as I like Leo, I don't really want to see him end up with Hazel, especially at the expense of Frank. I like the tension, I just don't want it to break that way. Let Leo fall for Rachel so I can live vicariously, he likes girls he probably can't get anyway :D!

I don't dislike Piper/Jason, but it does little to nothing for me. It has its occasional cute moments, but I find Piper to be much more interesting when she's doing anything but working on her relationship with Jason. Which is a shame. Jason himself still needs a lot more fleshing out as a character.[/s]

(click to show/hide)-nods- That's a good point. I just want Leo to get a girl, he deserves one.

Yeah that's basically how I feel. I like Piper personally. She can be really awesome. I just find her constant talking about Jason to be rather annoying. Jason this, Jason that, Jason's so handsome, Jason's so powerful, Jason's so perfect. Ugh he's really not that great, he hardly has a personality so I agree with you there definitely.

(click to show/hide)I almost felt like I was reading Twilight during those parts. I like Piper, but her obsession with Jason reminds me way too much of Bella towards Edward.

I'm still in the process of reading MoA. AND PERCABETH <3<3<3<3 I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

It's not an easy task to read the whole thing. XD

spoiler (click to show/hide)As much as I think Riordan is an outstanding writer overall, this Pier/Jason thing is gettign kind of uncomfortable. Piper is very engrossing when she's coming into her own as a person and facing down those demons, the Jason obsession just isn't working for me. And Jason just kind of goes..."yup. I love you. Mm hm."

I'd love to see Leo find happiness with a girl, I just want it to feel like the right one at the right time. But as someone who has felt like a "seventh wheel" for much of his life and struggled with it for a long time until recently, I almost want to see him find peace and self-assurance in himself independently first. Give himself some vindication. And then find happiness in a girl.[/spoiler]

(click to show/hide)Yeah, I agree completely. I don't think I could've said it any better. I love Riordan, I really do. He's usually great at romance. I just think he struck out a bit with Piper/Jason. I've noticed a lot of people don't care for them. Maybe it's because I don't personally understand what makes Jason so great, that I just can't understand what she sees in him. And on Jason's side, I kinda feel like it's hard to really buy the fact that he loves her. It seems like he's hiding something.

That's a good point. Maybe he still has some growing up to do before he finds a girl.

spoiler (click to show/hide)The problem with Jason is that Riordan abandoned his usual methods of building a character, and instead decided to just keep telling us "he's awesome. He's super handsome and good at everything. In fact, he's too good at everything". That's not just sketchy, it's boring. Normally he builds around a character and you discover them gradually, that's just basic good writing practices. He went way too quickly with Jason, and way too explicitly. Probably because he wanted a Roman foil to and extremely rich character like Percy (established over 5 whole books) in just two (only one if you only count pre-meeting Percy). It just didn't work out that way. He still has time to redeem him, he just needs to change his approach ASAP.

Leo basically needs to do what I detailed in my post about trying to deal with being single. This is not surprising if we remember I wrote that based on learning the hard way as a younger guy, and we remember that Leo resembles a younger me or any young fella in our archetype quite a bit.
