    This without a doubt for me has to be one of the best PJO Fanfics that are out there at the moment. All of the characters in the story are well balanced and do not have the mary sue problem most PJO Fanfics do. Not much knowledge is needed to read this book just a general idea of the universe would do (watching the movies). One thing that the another is very good is the use of perspectives, also i felt an astounding amount of empathy for the main character, and relay haven't found this in another fanatic.

    This theme has been tried many times however this fic does not stick with any of the old chicles that have been formed around this idea, has a really good reason as to How the Armani is able to exist without breaking on of the main rules in this universe.

    Aploiges if this review is a bit vague but I cant tell you without giving away one of the main plots. (even if it is revealed in the first chapter they are about 10,000 words each.) I relay don't think that this fic gets as much attention as it deserves due to all the other bad fics that attempt to tackle the same topic.

    5 out of 5

    p.s. first time posting a story if i got something wrong just tell me and i will do my best to fix it :fire

    Some grammatical issues, mostly involving dialogue. The plot itself wasn't too terrible but it wasn't all that great either. Other fics may be bad, but this one isn't that great.

    3/5

    I read this fic a while back and I have to admit that I love it. It's probably my favorite of the Percy Jackson fanfics and is a very interesting story with an interesting idea and a well developed OC. The whole Broken Bow series as a whole is also good. 5/5.

    By the way, I'd add the Fandom of the story in the threads title. It should say Broken Bow by Xen Alpha - T - Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

    The first book was good. Some mistakes and the character name is ridiculous, but it's a pretty fun read, with an interesting idea. A 4/5. The sequels are shit though, Armani quickly develops in one huge Gary Stu.
