Not the best.
Reviewed in the United States on October 18, 2019
This is weakest so far of the series. There are problems with the book that result from the fact that this is middle grade reading. The foreshadowing is very obvious. The characters are simple. The love triangle is old. Sometimes the characters are even stupid. They find a problem. They start to talk about it then decide for some reason that it isn't important and move on. So dumb.
Then there are other problems that can be justified by the fact that the book is middle grade. The plot holes are unnecessary. Things happen, then those things are ignored later in the book to service the plot. At the beginning of the book, one of their friends gets thrown over a cliff, seemingly dies, and everyone is simply infatuated by the presence of Artemis. No tears, no sadness, so let's go find her. Just "ooh, look, a god."
However, the story moves. The plot has interesting moments. There were stakes this time. Not a lot, as most characters that should have died didn't. But some. I didn't hate it, it was just alright.
