This book is miles better than the boring Red Pyramid. This book actually has quite an engrossing story. There is just one huge problem......... YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND THIS WITHOUT READING THE BORING FIRST BOOK! This means that you have to endure the torture of reading the first book before you can enjoy this one! The story is very good up until the last quarter, which reverts to the boring Red Pyramid style. I really don't think this book is worth buying because you have to torture yourself with the first book.show moreby ReviewerOfReviews
