I love Rick Riordan, but I didn't like this particular book in the series. I quit the book, just got dead. But, I still like the author he just needs to pick it up a bit.

Sexual Content: Absurd pornographic images come to mind when reading this book.

  • burritoofradness rated this: 1.5 stars out of 5.

Sexual Content: There are some slightly inappropriate themes ongoing with a lot of the relationships herein. It's kind of wink-wink in nature, though, so not much to be worried about.

Violence: Lots of violence; not as gory as most books, but still present.

Sexual Content: there is a gay character but that should not stop you from reading this book

Other: I love how everyone mentions *spoilers* that Nico is gay, but dosn't mention any of the other relationships in the book that go way further that whatever *more spoilers* that weird thing with cupid was. odd, odd scene. Also, it felt thrown in. Like, from a story standpoint it did nothing. and now i'm on a rant so I will leave.

Sexual Content: If you're homophobic, I suggest backing away from certain chapters of this book, as the character of Nico di Angelo comes out as gay. While he gets support from all of his fellow demigods - and almost all of the readers - understand this before reading.

Sexual Content: nico is gay with percy

Hazel made the mistake of looking over the rail. A dark, spherical shape hurtled toward her. She thought: Why is the moon coming at us? Then she yelped and hit the deck. The huge rock passed so close over head it blew the hair out of her face.

During the first attack, Hazel almost ate a boulder. She was peering into the fog, wondering how it could be so difficult to fly across one stupid mountain range, when the ships alarm bells sounded.
"Hard to port!" Nico yelled from the foremast of the flying ship.

“Keep climbing,' he told himself.
'Cheeseburgers,' his stomach replied.
'Shut up,' he thought.
'With fries,' his stomach complained.”

"We've got a good crew," Percy said. "If I have to sail to my death--"
"You're not dying on me, Seaweed Brain," Annabeth said. "Remember? Never separated again. And after we get home . . . "
"What?" Percy asked
She kissed him. "Ask me again, once we defeat Gaea."
He smiled, happy to have something to look forward to. "Whatever you say."

"Really? That would be a first. I'm the son of Hades. I might as well be covered in blood or sewage the way people treat me. And even that's not enough to set me apart. I have to be...to be..."

"I had a crush on Percy." Nico spat, "That's the truth. That's the big secret." He glared at Cupid, "Happy now?" For the first time, Cupid's gaze seemed sympathetic, "Oh i would'nt say love always makes you happy. sometimes it makes you incredibaly sad."

"How dare you send this...this charbroiled runt of a boy to ruin my tranquility!"

"You have to come with us," Annabeth pleaded. "The prophecy says 'foes bear arms to the doors of death'. I thought it meant romans and greeks, but that's not it. the line means us- demigods, a titan, a giant. We need you to close the doors!"
The drakon roared outside, closer this time. Damasen gently pulled his hand away.
"No, child," he murmured My curse is here. I cannot escape it."
"Yes you can," Annabeth said. "Don't fight the drakon. Figure out a way to break the cycle! Find another fate."
