Yes, I like Percy too, but we've already read a lot from his perspective. And knowing Riordan, he'll probably make it Percy, Annabeth, Jason and Piper, which is so underwhelming. Leo was the best character from the first book, I'd rather have his POV instead of Annabeth's (and a brand new demigod in her place as one of the seven, to be honest)
She really does. Now, the third book will have just four POV characters, and we know one is Annabeth, and one of the others is sure to be Percy... that sucks. I mean, we've read Percy's POV the entire first series and Annabeth is so boring (and has been around for a long time too). He should focus on the new characters imho.
