Summer Kick-Off

The school year wasn't the best, but I'm looking up to the summer. So far it's been OK. There are new Magic: The Gathering card sets being released and I'm getting better every time I play. The thing that is most on my mind is the book I finished reading, called The Last Olympian.

The Last Olympian, written by Rick Riordan, is about what it would be like to be the son or daughter of a god or goddess of the ancient Greek culture, be hunted constantly by fearsome monsters, and ride a Pegasus. But there is one twist that makes this book and the prequels(The Lightning Theif being the first) so good is that they are set in the modern U.S.A. The seiries follows Percy Jackson, a half-god(or demigods or half-bloods, more officially), and his friends Annabeth Chase, another demigod, Grover Underwood, a satyr(greek half-man, half-goat), and Rachel Dare, a mortal who can see through the magical veil called the Mist, as they fight in the final battle f0r Mount Olympus, which is now located in the sky above the Empire State Building. I would recomend this seiries to ANYONE(there are teachers I know who really liked the seiries) who likes a fun, funny, or otherwise entertaining read.
