Most certainly kept me reading. I worried in the beginning that I would quickly grow tired of the unrequited love between Hazel and Frank, but the bit by bit discovery of their hidden pasts kept their characters likable. This and discovering Percy's story through their points of view helped hinder the tiresome struggle of teen romance and kept the story entertaining as well.
It was nice not getting a review of the previous series every time more of Percy's memory returned and getting to share the revelation with his two new friends, creating delightful moments where Hazel and Frank wonder "Where did he learn that?" while the reader gets to reminisce "Oh, yeah. I remember when he figured how to do that."
As a faithful reader of the series, it was nice to be rewarded with a new adventure while gently encouraged to relive some of the highlights of the previous. Even more so when some beloved characters of the earlier series returned to the foreground.
