People have compared this book to the Percy Jackson series. That’s like saying Sabrina the Teenage Witch is comparable to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The difference between those two shows is that while they both have supernatural elements, they’re really entirely different shows– and so too is Juggler and Percy Jackson. Percy Jackson is an action/adventure series with an emphasis on the physical. Juggler is a journey of the soul. There’s a fight scene, but it’s a metaphysical fight that’s more about inner turmoil than outer. Juggler moves its plot forward through the internal growth of the protagonist, not through external violent forces, and I actually found that really refreshing.
