Review: Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan (aka me losing my mind over the end of the series)

Why does this have to end? Why can't this just keep going on forever and ever? Please, Rick Riordan, satisfy your readers with additional novellas or books about what our demigods' lives are like in the future.

Publication Date: October 7, 2014

I can't actually give a synopsis for this because it would spoil the first four books. So instead, you have to read the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series and then the first four Heroes of Olympus books.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I DON'T WANT THIS TO END. Okay, I may not have followed the series since I was a child, like many readers have, but I've gotten so attached to these characters in the past year that I can't imagine how other readers must feel.

This has to be one of the best series conclusions I've read, though the ending did feel a bit rushed. The characters' storylines were wrapped up well, and there were mentions of their future. All of the characters got their happy ending and Rick Riordan didn't pull a Suzanne Collins, which was very nice.

I can't really say much about this book just because anything I say would be a spoiler for the first 9 books. All you need to know is: READ THIS SERIES

One thing I do think is important to point out, is that Rick Riordan has fantastic themes of friendship throughout his books, and I find that to be wonderful. It makes his books ideal for kids because they learn about keeping friendships strong and supporting each other, something I don't think a lot of Middle Grade or YA fantasy series talk about that much.


I'm sorry, that's not very professional, but I still can't say much without spoiling the whole series for you. I will say that I liked how many of the characters grew over the course of these books. Naturally, there are some characters that I didn't like as much as others, but it was great to see how each character grew and changed and how much they all supported each other.

5 stars and highly recommended to anyone and everyone. I can't say enough good things about this series or Percy Jackson & The Olympians

I apologize for not being more thorough in my review, but there really is little that I can say without spoiling you. I want to keep your reading experience as pleasant as possible, and so I will refrain from discussing anything that might dampen your experience with these books.
