That being said, the mysteries in each book were extremely predictable. I spent more than half of each novel knowing exactly who the bad guy was and what was 'secretly' going on. Maybe it is because I am an adult reading this, but I've read a lot of YA books that do mysteries successfully.
It was also weird that everyone called her (including herself), "Gypsy girl." It got old super fast. Plus, what in the heck do gypsies have to do with greek gods??? They never touched on that. Also, the description of her as plain, yet having violet eyes made ME roll my eyes. Oh woe is me teenager who is obviously not that plain.
Another complaint I have is that this school and set of gods, they tell us, includes all sorts of cultures like Japan and south America too. She mentions this in most of the books... yet we never see anything but Greek/Roman and Nordic Gods and mythology. All of the characters are white or Mediterranean too. If there are multicultural Gods and powers, why do we never see any? There was a bad case of telling instead of showing.
I also felt like the culture of everyone drinking, partying, and having sex was a little overemphasized.Read more ›
Anyways enough of my rambling. The series is a good read that is light in nature. Yes some of the characters and plots are predictable, but so was Harry Potter and we all know how that turned out. There are more books than just these four, but the bundle value is worth the cash. Start here and go on a journey that Percy Jackson would be lost on. The detail that Estep puts in the description of the Academy and all the sculptures around here are wonderfull as the reader ends up immersed in a world in which the gods and goddess of many religions once again use humans as the chess pieces. Wonderful story.

So far I am loving this series. I could do without the sex innuendo, it is unnecessary. But since it is not in detail I can overlook it. Great job!Published on August 9, 2014 by TheWiseLady
This was a bundle with the first 4 books. Was glad I had all 4 as I always wanted the next one right away.Published on July 25, 2014 by Pamela Day
