*"While the adventure is properly thrilling, the heart of the book lies in the boys' connection. Even those uninterested in romance will appreciate how their relationship reinforces themes of found family and belonging and the way the characters learn to navigate and communicate through their past traumas. The perfect read for fans of Percy Jackson, as well as those who love modern, inclusive takes on classic mythology."--Booklist (starred review) *"A seamlessly written, action-packed story that's also a sensitive, introspective character study. Fans who've been waiting for more of adorable couple Nico and Will won't be disappointed."--School Library Journal (starred review) *"This collaborative effort between Riordan and Oshiro maintains earlier Percy Jackson entries' glorious knack for mythical machinations, profoundly sharp conflicts, and contemporary humor. At its core, this stellar tale centers a richly woven love story that shines with ease two boys who are seemingly different from one another. A standout."--Kirkus (starred review) "Reprising the Greek myth-grounded books' goofy humor, high-stakes action, and whimsical worldbuilding, the collaborators weave in tender romance and emotionally complex ruminations on change, self-identity, and mental health, balancing adventure with heart and heft."--Publishers Weekly
