The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I found perhaps half of Riordan's attempts at jokes to be funny; I imagine that if I were in the intended age range that number would be much higher. I'm not nearly as impressed with the mythology as I was in the Percy Jackson books- in this one I honestly found myself skeptical that Riordan pulled any of it from real sources (I haven't had a chance to research it yet)- but the change has been away from ancient mythology and toward learning tolerance for other human beings, which I can't really complain about. While these (and the other new series) might not be as good books as his earlier ones, the addition of morals makes up for it, at least for me.
