Product Description

Review

PRAISE FOR THE LOST HERO


"Readers longing for a return to Camp Half-Blood will get their wish.... ...the action scenes come frequently as the three heroic teens fight monstrous enemies in North American locales..... Flashes of humor lighten the mood at times, but a tone of urgency and imminent danger seems as integral to this series as the last. With appealing new characters within a familiar framework, this spin-off will satisfy the demand for more."
Booklist

PRAISE FOR THE SON OF NEPTUNE

"Should pacing and wit continue unabated into the third volume, whose foretold European setting promises further freshness, fans will eagerly await numbers four and five."
Kirkus

Format: Hardcover
"The Blood of Olympus" is the fifth and final installment of Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series, and it begins pretty much right where the previous book, "The House of Hades," ended. Our Greek and Roman demigods (Jason, Percy, Annabeth, Leo, Piper, Frank and Hazel), with the aid of other semi-divine kids like Reyna and Nico, must find a way to bring the Athena Parthenos statue back to Camp Half-Blood in order to prevent a war between the Greek and Roman camps - and also must find a way to stop Gaea, the Earth Mother, from rising and destroying every living thing on the planet. Oh, and they have to cope with the schizophrenia of the gods, whose Greek and Roman selves are fighting within each deity. Not to mention dealing with their own teenage relationship struggles. And they only have a week to do it all.... "Blood" features the trademark breakneck pace of Riordan's writing, with plenty of action and not a lot of time for the reader to absorb everything that's going on before something else grabs our attention; but then, that's exactly why we read these YA novels, and it's great to see that he doesn't let us down in this final chapter! You cannot read this book without having read the four previous novels in the series, and preferably also the five Percy Jackson novels before that, but if you have been reading these fun takes on Greek and Roman mythology, you will be delighted with this book too. My only quibble is that Gaea is evil, when my pagan heart says that can't be right. Apparently next, Mr. Riordan is going to tackle the Norse myth canon; should be another interesting ride for readers! Recommended.

Format: Hardcover
The seven demigods have been through a lot. They manage to complete their individual quests (book one and two) find each other (still book two), Annabeth defeats the spider and save the Athena Parthenos (book three), and her and Percy going through Tartarus (book four) to get where they are today. Today they are a week out from August first, the day that Gaea wakes, also the day the Romans plan on destroying Camp Half-Blood. With little time Leo, Piper, Jason, Percy, Annabeth, Frank, Hazel, Nico and Reyna have to make a plan in order to save their camp and their world from Mother Earth herself.

Each chapter takes place from a characters point-or-view while constantly switching between characters. With the Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east, the book was divided between Nico and Reyna story, and the seven demigods story. Nico and Reyna along with Coach Hedge were assigned the task of bringing the Athena Parthenos back to Camp Half-Blood. This became a daunting task as they used Nico’s shadow travel to move great distances. This method had taken a toll on Nico’s health as if he did it much more he would become a shadow himself. Nico kept that information to himself and push himself to the limits, for war in the camps would not stop unless Reyna deliver the statue on August first, otherwise Leo, Percy, Annabeth, and Piper would not have a home to return to.

The second half was aboard the Argo II as it sailed east for Athens, Greece. Taken from the point of view of Leo, Piper and Jason, them and the other four demigods travel to stop the waking of Gaea. They go on team quests, take down Goddesses and Gods, convince others to help them out, all the save the world as we know it.

By Jonel TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Aug. 2 2015
Format: Hardcover
Riordan blends a mix of real history and mythology that creates the perfect backdrop for this adventurous tale. The superimposition of what was-is-will be also creates an impressive backdrop and intricate twists to the plot. The fast paced story brings together the various aspects of the series in a fantastic conclusion. Riordan kept me captivated throughout with this vibrant, larger than life tale.

Riordan’s characters embody the best of Roman and Greek demi-gods as well as being modern day teenagers. The mix creates unforgettable individuals that you want to go on a quest with. They’ve grown and morphed throughout the series, culminating in this bunch of adventurous individuals who’ve definitely gripped my heart.

Riordan doesn’t wrap this series up in a pretty little bow, but rather leaves it open for any of the characters to continue on into their own series. At the same time, there is a sense of completion that allows the series to end well.

I was completely blown away by this book, I've been reading this series since it started waiting every year for the next book to come out, and while it makes me sad to think there won't be any more it was an amazing way to end the series.
Amazon delivered it in perfect condition and it came right on time. 5 Stars!

Here's what my granddaughter said about this book:

I love anything written by Rick Riordan. I think this book is his best book yet because it has even more adventures than the previous books. My favorite part was when some of the half-bloods went to get the physician's cure from Asclepius, the god of healers, but before they could meet with Asclepius they had to fight an automated statue of Hygeia, Asclepius' daughter, which was programmed to kill anyone who entered the waiting room. They kept cutting the statue's head and arms off but the parts would always stick back on until Leo, the group's technology whiz, found its switchboard and programmed it to run into the wall and smash to pieces so that, in the end, they got to see Asclepius without any more interference. Overall, no matter how bad the adventures were, they would always have a happy ending.
