  16. Bella

    No! No! No! Why did it have to end like that!!!! Now that will drive me crazy!!!! But it was still REALLY good! Go Percy Jackson and Jason Grace!

  17. Love the Percy Jackson books. One thing i noticed about the cover is that Jason and Percy are fighting against each other on the cover. You can tell by Percy’s Camp-Halfblood t shirt and the water on the bottom of his horse since hes a son of Neptune and you can tell its Jason by his purple t shirt and all the thunder bolts since hes a son of Jupiter:)

  18. mike

    i wonder why they are fighting. i cant wait when percy and annebeth see each other face to face! i think jason and percy are fighting because percy is now preator and jason is jealous

  19. percy jackson

    i wonder why they’re fighting. i tought juno/hera changd them so that they could be the ‘bridge’

  20. cool girl

  37. Greek Jesi

    i wonder what the “mark” of Athena is. does Annabeth get marked with something? i just cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. heidi

    Ugh!! Why won’t they give us more?!? I simply cannot wait another moment until the end of October!!! D: Come to mee, October, come to me!

  39. Niamh Evantii

    i got so msd when i found out its only the first chapter and all the suspense is buolding up! Why cant OCTOBER be tomorrow?! But still Percy Jackson series is still a 100 times better than THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS… its still a great read, though, I MISS GROVER! I HAVE ENCHILADAS, SATYRS ;)

  40. Awesomeness

    That was Awesome! I Hope October comes sooner. I love Rick Riordans books They’re Amazing!!!

  41. Riordans#1Fan

    Everyone at my school is SUPER excited :D . I’m sure Grover will be back soon. Ever since Percy asked for Calypso to be released as part of his reward for saving Olympus, I’ve been hoping she would return.

  42. Jenna

    I llllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Percy Jakson! I’m 10 and I can’t stop rereading the books! B)

  43. i love the percy jacksn books and i wish they gave more than the first chapter. i am also afraid for anabeth beacase the title makes it sound like this will be annabeths last stand. i hope not. GO ANNABETH

  44. i love these books but the title really scares me because it makes me feel like this wil be annabeths last stand. i hope not. GO ANNABETH

    • MonkeesFan16

      Nah, I don’t think the series could continue without Annabeth. Percy would be lost without her telling him what to do.

      Is it October 2nd, yet?

  45. Can You Please make the book come out sooner? I want to see what happens when Percy and Jason meet. It would be awesome if they battled it out. Also i am Percy biggest fan. So please make the book come out sooner.

  46. I am Percy’s biggest fan. So please make sure the book comes out sooner. P.S. The children from the prophecy are Percy, Jason Annabeth, Leo, Frank, Hazel, Piper
