Amos had told us that magicians tried to stay out of Manhattan.He said Manhattan had other problems—whatever that meant. And sometimes when I looked across the water, I could swear I was seeing things. Sadie laughed about it, but once I thought I saw a flying horse . Probably just the mansion’s magic barriers causing optical illusions, but still,it was weird. -THRONE OF FIRE NOTE: Manhattan is the base of demigods and the flying horse could refer to the Pegasus of Percy Jackson. In the book THE RED PYRAMID, Thot (Egyptian God of Knowledge), complained on being compared to Hermes (Greek God) and even hinted that they know each other. Awesome!
I bought hardbound copies of 'The Gone-Away World' by Nick Harkaway, 'The Lock Artist' by Steve Hamilton, 'Daniel X book 1 and 2' by James Patterson, and The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan from NBS Rob Ermita.
i have read the Percy Jackson series. It is quite interesting for me. And besides, I was finishing up the God of War series (which is based on the same mythology) when I was reading the book. So it was a good read for me.
Now, Rick Riordan came up with this Heroes of Olympus and Kane Chronicles Series. Can anyone explain how these 3 book series differs?

Finally, after 4 weeks of waiting my order from bookdepository.com has arrived! Couldn't find it anywhere here. This is book 11 of my collection so it HAD to be this particular version. I LOVE Alexander McCall Smith. Read about my post on The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency here. http://wandafulworldofbooks.blogspot.co ... gency.html
