Hey Mira, it's been a while and sorry if it seems like I'm only messaging you about a question I just didn't feel right doing it without asking. I was wondering if you would mind if I used some of your OC's for my fan fiction? I got a new job where I'm at a desk 24/7 and so much free time it's ridiculous so I have time for my hobbies like writing. Sorry bout the long message.
I'll try not to spoil too much and I'll put parts that aren't too spoilery first and I'll put big ones at the end in bold (so read at your own risk
Nico is perfect, he's not a huge part of the book but he's certainly there and he's obviously feeling a lot more comfortable at camp.
Clarisse was mentioned, she's in college now, and so is Travis Stoll (Connor is the younger one, it's official!)
Thalia was only mentioned once I'm pretty sure, and that was Apollo thinking about the time he let her fly the sun.
Percy was great, Rick didn't rely on him too much, and he only showed up near the start and near the end but the parts with him in them were EPIC.
Jason and Piper are in their senior year in LA, they're living with Piper's dad.
Annabeth wasn't in the book physically because it was running concurrently with Magnus Chase so she's in Boston. But Percy mentions her and Apollo refers to her as 'the scary blonde one'.
NOW FOR THE BIG SPOILERS, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED
Nico and Will are officially dating and they're the cutest thing ever.
Sally is pregnant! Probably not that big a spoiler but I thought I'd mark it just incase.
Leo shows up at the end with Calypso and they're gonna be main characters in the next book
(Also spoiler for Magnus Chase I guess) there was a throw away line that implied Apollo once tried to pick up Magnus Chase's dad Frey in a bar once but Jack the talking sword irritated him too much and I DIED.
OKAY SPOILERS OVER
All in all it was an EPIC book with a lot of great little references to the previous ones. Apollo and his relationship with his kids (not just Will) was great to see. It also didn't shy away from anything and introduced a lot of cool new characters (or expanded on characters which had originally just been background names) and all in all I just really enjoyed it okay??
Awww! Sounds awesome! Can't wait to read it! It's set how many years after BOO? Also Nico and Will, yay! That was one of the main things I wanted to know about in TOA! Also Leo being back is amazing, I have read that extract! And well, Apollo is quite correct- Annabeth is scary at times and good to know Percy gets a break from being a hero at times, while still being awesome!
It said in the book that it was set six months after BoO, and Percy is studying for his SATs (which I assume is basically the American version of the HSC?). Percy was great because he was just so done with all the gods. And yeah, Apollo's definitely not wrong.
Oh! In India we have Class 12 ISC/CBSC/State Board examination. I have no idea whhat the US eqquivalent is but in India we start giving the SAt in class 10, 11 and 12 if we want to go abroad for studies.
