Percy Jackson Fans Unite put up two reviews of The Son of Sobek by Rick Riordan. One is spoiler-free while the other does contain spoilers. I will be putting up my review once I buy the standalone e-book on June 19th. If you’ve read the book and wish to comment with a spoiler, please make sure to write spoiler before it.
The Son of Sobek Spoiler-Free Review!
Okay, so here is my review that contains no spoilers for those of you who haven’t read it yet. This is going to be short as well, the book is short, and I can’t write any detail!
So, pretty much, it was good. Not great, but good. Basically, Rick should not have just written a short story, in my opinion, because we are just being teased for a possible future phenomenon. So, if you are debating whether to get it, or just wait for the e-book, I’d recommend you wait 🙂 .
Thanks for Reading!

The Son of Sobek Review!
Warning! Contains The Son of Sobek Spoilers!
As Promised, here is my (spoiler included) review. Only read if you have already read The Son of Sobek and/or do not care about reading spoilers.
Overall, I was a little disappointed with the book. I was just expecting a bit more. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it was really good, I guess it just couldn’t live up to my expectation with it only being a 30 page book.
The main problem I have is that it talked about things like the doors of death, but that doesn’t make any sense.Wasn’t the book supposed to take place before The Lost Hero? Percy didn’t even know anything about the doors of death then, just what happened in the prophecy, but he even said he thought it would be generations later.
Also, he said things like Carter being a monster coming out of Tartarus through the doors, and he sure didn’t know anything about that back then.
Now, my other complaint: the ending! It was such a good ending, but it was a RickHanger! How could he do that!? He doesn’t even know if he is going to write another book.
Personally, I think it would be amazing if he turned it into a series, but the problem is, even if he did, he said it wouldn’t be until after Norse! That’s 6+ years down the road! I’ll be in my 20′s!
Anyways, those are my opinions, how about yours?
Thanks for Reading.
