Book Description

Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever.



The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over . . .

    4.0 out of 5 stars Love it! but missing parts? 28 Oct. 2014
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    So the Heroes of Olympus series is finally over and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I love Rick Riordan's writing style and his stories are incredibly entertaining, the blood of Olympus is no exception. Some moments had me laughing out loud, for example the battle with Nike, who asked them to battle each other to the death to receive the honour of winning a crown of leaves. Or Percy and Leo's comment about drawing out Nike by wearing Adidas shoes. Moments like that are what made the book for me. I also love how well developed Nico and Reynas characters had become throughout the book and how we now got to understand Nico more and how much of an impact his actions have had and that he doesn't get the recognition and acceptance that he should have received, making his chapter POVs my favourites in the entire book. This book also made me love Jason and Piper more as we saw a lot more of them and I loved seeing Piper become so strong and kick-ass.

    However there were some downsides which made the book a disappointing last instalment to this phenomenal series, one of the main ones being the characters POVs, this was a big let down because whilst I enjoyed the chapters I received, I felt like something was missing the entire book and that is because Percy, Annabeth, Frank and Hazel were all reduced to secondary characters, we received no POVs from them and they were rarely commented on in the other characters POVs, this upset me as I felt like I was unable to say goodbye to some of my all time favourite book characters, especially Percy who we have known for 10 books yet never get to say goodbye to, or see how he dealt with the aftermath of the house of hades or Gaia.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for the Final Book 27 Oct. 2014
    Format:Hardcover
    So..my initial base reaction to this is a mixture of two things:

    Number 1: Noooo- the series can’t end, I love it so freakin’ much!

    Number 2: YES. GOOD. ALL OF THE FEELS.

    I will try my best to keep my review spoiler free- as usual!

    I’ll try to construct a more readable and “professional” review, but those are my initial reactions, so you know I loved the book anyway.

    Sadly, this is the final book in the Percy Jackson series. As far as we know, unless Riordan writes another crossover book between his Kane Chronicles or maybe his new Norse mythology series (oooh~), we probably won’t be hearing from any of these characters again. Which makes me really, really sad, because I hadn’t realised it at the time, but I got so attached to the “new” characters during the Heroes of Olympus series- especially Frank Zhang and Leo Valdez..

    So, this final book follows the crew as they journey and adventure, sarcastic quips and pop culture references and all, across the globe, attempting to stop Gaea from rising from Tartarus and you know, wiping out civilization- no big deal, just another day in a demi-god’s life.

    I can’t really say much about this book, without giving away spoilers because it is a final book in a series. But all you need to know is Riordan has managed to create magic once again. The writing is fantastic, humourous and witty and sweet all at the same time. The characters are memorable, unique and well-written. The pacing is a nice steady speed of “oh my god what next? what next?!”

    I will say there were a few times where I got a little tired of there being a pop culture reference on almost every page, but to be honest, that isn’t even really a negative.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan 20 Oct. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The Blood of Olympus was quite possibly my most anticipated release of the year - the final Heroes of Olympus book - and I was pretty freaking excited for it. The Blood of Olympus was a brilliant end to the Heroes of Olympus series, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the rest of the series.

    The Blood of Olympus took me forever to get through. It took me less time to read The Mark of Athena & The House of Hades - and they had more pages! Honestly, The Blood of Olympus had an extremely slow start for me. I wasn't as drawn into the story as I usually was, and I found myself only reading a couple of chapters a day because I was slightly bored. But, the book did pick up about a third of the way in and from that moment on I was hooked.

    The demigods are running out of time to stop Gaia from rising. Nico, Reyna and Coach Hedge are trying to get The Athena Parthenos back to Camp Jupiter before the Romans attack while Percy, Annabeth, Leo, Frank, Piper, Jason & Hazel head off to stop Gaia.

    I love every single one of the characters in the Heroes of Olympus series, so when it was revealed that one of the 7 demigods would die, I was obviously heartbroken. All 7 of the demigods are amazing for different reasons: Annabeth & Percy are just my absolute faves (obviously, no reasons needed); Leo is hilarious and bonkers; Jason is strong and hilarous; Piper is awesome; Frank is the sweetest and Hazel is badass. I just couldn't imagine losing one of those characters because I love them all. I also really, really love Reyna and Nico. Reyna is just so freaking awesome, badass and amazing. And Nico is the cutest, scariest, most adorable guy ever.

    The first part of the book dragged and just lacked the usual feel for me.
