Short review on this one. Easy 3 stars. It wasn't as good as the first one, but I had already heard that. I liked that it involved the places that were in the Odyssey which is one of my favorite books. I just felt this one wasn't as inventive as the last, but I've heard that the series gets better. Despite them being so fun to read I do not want to hurry into the next one like I have done with other young adult series. I will read them of course, but no rush.
