    kolaveri_telugu's book review was featured in The Son Of Neptune (The Heroes of Olympus, Book 2).
    Riordan books run on emotion....this one is no different. Us readers are attracted to his books in the first place by the hilarious humor but with a backdrop of strong emotion. Each character has their own heartbreaking story to tell, and the past is what shapes their character. Percy would not have a significant role in the book if not for his memory loss, as the fact that he struggled forward to see Annabeth again made us want to cry. Frank would be nothing without his sad story and the witty theory Riordan came up with that if you are powerful, then your life depends on something delicate. Frank had a lot of heartbreak in his past; faced a level of sadness that the other demigods did not. He also had the power to turn into animals, which backfired on him because his life depended on a small piece of stick. If it was burned, he was dead. This lifeline is the leverage that Riordan used to develop the character and add emotion into the story. Hazel is dead. She has been given a second chance at life and the way she died makes you want to cry. The way Riordan has used these characters, developed their characters so we as readers could thoroughly enjoy the book, is completely unbelievable. When we read his books, we feel like we are the main character of the book. We can relate to this sadness, this heartbreak, and the depth in each individuals' characters is what makes this story shine. However, not just that, the breezy humor that covers up the drama and emotion is the most lovable part of the book. One will find themself laughing every five minutes as the journey continues through its fast-paced action. Action. That's another aspect of this book we love. The way they defeat the monsters, used their differences to conquer the evil is top-notch. The book never seems to lose pace and keeps us on our toes. As a reader, we want a roller coaster of emotions jam-packed into a book, and Riordan has packaged it perfectly in this novel yet again. Kudos, Mr. Riordan. Your books are our sanctuary to a key to a parallel universe of heroes who we can relate to. We love Riordan World.

    This is merely part of the emotion that draws us readers in...Percy could not survive without knowing his own name, one, and two, this emotional connection he had with Annabeth, the time they spent together, was forever seared into his brain. He felt so much for Annabeth that even getting amnesia because of Ms. Majesty Of Annoyingness wouldn't completely erase the memory of Annabeth. Riordan includes this to further increase sentimental value and half the plot is driven by Percy moving only doing the journey and not giving up hope because he remembers Annabeth.

    The story of a girl's life and how she overcomes her disability of being deaf. Her deafness is what drives the plot of the book. It is very touching and based on a true story. It is packed with so much emotion it makes you want to cry. And the author has achieved this range through the form of a graphic novel. Awesome!!

    kolaveri_telugu liked a comment in Aru Shah and the End of Time (A Pandava Novel Book 1) (Pandava Series).
    I love mythology. To be honest, Rick Riordan’s book made me love it. So when I saw this new “Rick Riordan Presents” ARC I had to request it. And based on the high demand on this particular ARC, I would say I got pretty lucky. ASATEOF was beautiful in many different ways. I was so excited to see that a middle grade mythology novel is based on Hindu mythology. #WENEEDMOREDIVERSEBOOKSINOURLIVES But, Aru Shah maybe, kind of had a bit of flaws. I shall now arrange this in a pros and cons order- PROS- What I really liked about this novel is the mythology. The Hindu mythology was something new to find in middle grade novels, AND I LOVED IT. The humor in Aru Shah was HILARIOUS! (Wow Lana, the humor was hilarious) There is something though….we’ll just leave it for the cons. The characters were really interesting. I l oved how Roshani Chokshi gave them different personalities. I loved them so much, I wished that I can just hop in and join them on their adventure. I really liked Aru. I loved how she was smart and adventurous. For a girl like Mini, Aru Shah was a perfect sister. Mini was so adorable. Her personality stood out from all the other characters from different books. Mini was truly special! CONS- This is going to be a really short list, so listen carefully… The jokes and references in this book were a bit exaggerated. Ok, I laughed at most of them, but in the middle of a fight, a joke irritates me. Oh! Another thing, the author says that Aru is feeling mad or sad, but she says something a mad person wouldn’t say. When you feel mad, do you usually crack a joke? I don’t think so. In all, I liked this book. There were a few “things” that really upset me. ASATEOF had a bright future, but had a bit of a rough trip. 3 stars from me! Not bad! I received an ARC from DogoBooks; this has not influenced my opinion.
