Riordan fan, but sometimes
Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2021
My son likes Rick Riordan books and they normally come out around his birthday. I was looking forward to something that was different from mythology. This book wasn’t as good as Percy Jackson series or the Kane series. I would rank this with the Apollo series. It didn’t have the same sense of humor and tongue in the cheek narrative. I really wanted to like Ana but she didn’t have the same flair as Annabeth.
I also wanted to like it because it was different and it added a new twist to 20000 Leagues and Capt Nemo adventures. Normally, I can devour his book in a day, this one took me awhile, because I just couldn’t get into the story.
It was nice he was trying to have a female lead and try to show leadership etc with her, but compared to Annabeth, she failed.
If you a fan of Riordan, yes get this book for your collection, but just be aware that in my opinion this book doesn’t have the same flair as his Percy Jackson series.
