    This is it, the greatest, end-all Percy Jackson and the Olympians story, no exaggeration. If another story dethrones it in the future, I suspect it will be written by the same author. Every other fanfic in the fandom is trash in comparison.

    The idea of Percy and Annabeth trying for the Isles of the Blest - finding each other and proving their love three times - is a brilliant, brilliant concept. Very moving first two chapters in particular.

    Is this one where Annabeth become an air hostess in one life and a rich girl in another life?

    If so,I have read it.

    I vaguely remember reading part of this story a loooong time ago, so I'm glad it's finally finished.

    Overall, it was pretty good. Technically well-written, and a mostly interesting plot. My only complaint is that it started to drag after a while. Te plot didn't have enough power to stop me from skimming some parts.

    Regardless, in the context of Percy Jackson fics, it's near the top, and as such deserves to be in the Library. 4/5

    Edit - This isn't a fault of the fic and has nothing to do with my rating, but I couldn't help but think how weaksauce the Isles of the Blest were compared to Percy becoming a god. :p

    I liked this story but I have to say, the last life, with Percy being a son of Hermes and Annabeth being the daughter of a senator was rather boring and tedious which, for me, cost the story a bit.

    Loved the idea though.

    3.5/5

    I read this a while back and had to leave a review for the author.

    Maybe it's the fact that I saw Cloud Atlas a little before reading this story, or maybe just because I read romance so rarely, that I can honestly say it's one of the most affecting stories I've read.

    Unlike Nemrut I feel the second reincarnation was the weakest of the three, however the way it's described when Annabeth has to relive it at the end adds that sense of a life lived that it lacked compared to the other two.

    5/5
