What I don't get is why everyone's soooo enamored with Soloangelo, We forget about the perfectly cannon Reynico. I ship Reynico and I don't care, People.
Also, SPQR has NO VERB. Cheap. You could've used "Venimus, Vidimus, Vicimus" We came, we saw, we conquered....
But, NOOOO. You had to use a PHRASE.
Hands down, one of the best book series I’ve ever read!! The characters in this series are all 3-Dimensional, they aren’t all perfect -they’re human beings. It just goes to show that everyone has problems and no one is flawless. I would recommend reading the original series- Percy Jackson and the Olympians- for some backstory though, because their are many references throughout Heroes of Olympus. All in all, Amazing!!
ok, so Percy Jackson's initials are PJ, Annabeth Chase's initial's are AC, Nico diAngelo's are NA, and Piper McLean's are PM. Riordan! What's up?
This book was a very exciting book about the 7 demigods going on the quest to stop Gaea from waking, and Coach Hedge, Reyna, and Nico trying to return the Athena Parthenos. On the way they encounter monsters and more, but continue. I would recommend this for anyone 12-18, because there is lots of things not suitable any younger, and any older it might be boring. I found this book entertaining and fun, and I would enjoy to read it again.
I READ THIS BOOK SERIES 4 TIMES SO SAD THAT THIS IS LAST BOOK OF SERIES :(
This book has magic and mythical creatures in it. I like to learn about the Greek myths and monsters in modern times using cell phones and listening to iTunes. - Won, age 11
this book is one of my favorites! the one where percy, Annabeth, leo, piper, hazel, frank, and Jason finally complete their quest to defeat gaea. you have to read this!!! (if you want to know what happens to leo, just read trials of Apollo: the hidden oracle
Wow. Just wow. “The Blood of Olympus” was an incredible ending to a fascinating series. “The Blood of Olympus” was the finale to all the suspense that built up in the four books before. This novel was definitely more dramatic as there was more at stake. My expectations were reached. I understand that although this may not be the highest level of quality, Rick Riordan had to end the series in some way. I felt like this book didn’t include much of Percy, Annabeth, Frank, and Hazel. They felt more like side characters in comparison of Jason, Piper and Leo. Being the final book of the series, I thought all seven demigods points of view would be consistently shown throughout the book. However, it surprised me that Nico and Reyna had points of view but I got a deeper understanding of their characters and they also formed an unlikely friendship. Overall, this series was amazing and I would absolutely recommend reading “The Blood of Olympus”. 5/5 stars.

This is an absolutely amazing finale to The Heroes of Olympus! It includes so much, yet the perfect amount so that the readers do not feel overwhelmed. Even if they do, it would be in a good way. I am so glad that after reading this, it was informed that there would be more mythology coming out that talks about some characters and what happened after! Just a suggestion, but readers should go read about Magnus Bane, before they continue with the Trials of Apollo. This may make the transition a bit less forced and more natural, in reference to time. I really truly wholeheartedly ship Percabeth, I really do. 5/5 Stars.

There is no doubt that the day this book was released, the stores were packed because everyone wanted to take a grab at the final novel about our favourite demigods. Honestly speaking, I liked the way this book was written and the storyline was not bad. It didn’t feel like things were getting wrapped up too quickly; Riordan keeps his winning style throughout the entire series and it was evident in this book. The only thing that is missing would be Percy and Annabeth’s perspectives, but I can see why the author chose to dismiss them this one time, considering we have heard from them since The Lightning Thief. But I still think it would be nice to see at least one of their perspectives because they have just returned from Tartarus and there isn’t a lot we have gotten from them since then. Overall, Riordan highlighted a lot on Leo Valdez in this book but you can see that Piper, Jason, Hazel, Frank, Percy and Annabeth all are a crucial backbone for this book. An action packed read! 5/5

This book (and series) were absolutely incredible! Great story line with lots of plot twists and a fun way to learn about the greek and roman. Cool way of taking something as old as mythology and giving it it's own twist, with lots of easily lovable characters. A very addictive read, loved these books so much! Still can't get over the massive cliff hanger at the end of the book... <3
This was such a great book! I really liked it! Riordan's such a great writer! I love his writing style and how he plays out his cards slowly and not out all at once. This leaves the readers with an anticipation on what's to come in the future!
The end has one of Rick's best cliffhangers that I've ever read. I recommend this book to all mythology lovers!!!
I would say the book was well written but the ending leaves me with a lot of questions and some untied loose ends. Hopefully, Rick Riordan will write the ending with Leo's situation and all in one of his mini extra books for this series, cause it does not feel complete until that is cleared up. Also, slightly disappointed that Percy and Annabeth don't play as big of a role as we all expected but, I can't blame the author for doing that since it can be pretty tiring using the same character for years. It's like Rick is saying that it's time for the other heroes to shine as well and set Percy and Annabeth aside so bidding farewell to these series won't be as bad. :P I'll just think of it that way and hopefully future readers will think of that as well.
I was kind of disappointed, because I really was hoping for a point of view from ALL of the seven. the ending... Leo... that was weird.. Still a pretty good book though.
It's The Best But Read All The Other Books in The Series First My Rating would Be 5 Stars
As a avid follower of the Percy Jackson franchise I can honestly say I was left a bit disappointed by this book. It had all the makings of being potentially the best book in the heroes of Olympus series. However the book was quite underwhelming in comparison to the other brilliant books from the series. There was so much hype associated with this book, it was supposed to be the thrilling conclusion for the Percy Jackson Franchise. However the book did not live up to this hype, one reason it did not live up to its hype was due to Rick Riordan leaving out the most important character's point of view in this story. Yes Percy Jackson was not a character whose point of view we read from. Instead we got other lesser characters like Reyna, Nico De Angelo, etc. My main problem with the book was how it felt utterly rushed and not very well thought out. After all the years of reading Rick Riordan books, I have no doubt that he is truly an amazing author and he was even able to incorporate some nice ideas into this book, but he seemed to be off his game when it came to making the book feel dramatic and making the reader just dying to find out what happens at the end of the book. He forgets to expand on ideas from the previous books such as Percy's difficult choice. Another reason this was book was disappointing to me was that it felt as if the battles in this book were rushed and not as brutal as battles from previous books such as the battle against Kronos in the Last Olympian. All in all the book was promoted as thrilling conclusion to the franchise that was meant to have plenty of high paced action, unbearable suspense, and quite a bit of bloodshed. Let's just say that book failed to live up to its hype in most ways.
I was hoping for a lot more. Expecting, really. After a history of amazing books, one after the other, Rick's luck finally caught up to him, I guess. This book was OK. It was decent. But it wasn't the extraordinary, gripping, exciting, and sad book that we were all hoping it would be. I mean, there was no Percy POV. Frankly, Percy Jackson, who we've followed from the very start, seemed kind of downplayed throughout the entirety of The Blood of Olympus. And while I know it's not all about him, it would've been nice to at least see more of Percy in the book, because, y'know, we're kind of saying goodbye to him. Overall, it felt like a lot of loose ends were left untied, and the end didn't feel real. I hardly felt anything at all. And after the roller coaster of feels that was the Mark of Athena, and The House of Hades, well, it was kind of a let down, not having to bring out the tissues ONCE during The Blood of Olympus. I mean, we were promised blood. Not a nosebleed.
When I put this book on hold when it first came out I was number 8 in line
These books were so awesome. I must say though, I didn't know we would be left with such a huge cliffhanger. I'm still traumatized. Other than that, I loved these books
