Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Heroes of Olympus is a superb series!!!!!!!!!! Its protagonists are Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, Jason Grace, Leo Valdez, Piper Mclean, Frank Zhang, Hazel Levesque, Reyna Ramirez, Gleeson Hedge and Nico di Angelo. The series in order-
- The Lost Hero
- The Son of Neptune
- The Mark of Athena
- The Blood of Olympus
- The House of Hades
A prophecy has been spoken –
“Seven half-bloods shall answer the call, to storm or fire the world must fall, an oath to keep with a final breath, as foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.”
Seven half-bloods – that is seven demigods (that is, sons and daughters of gods and goddesses) have to work together and save the world from an evil ( but sadly, powerful) goddess all in a couple of months, sailing in their spankin’ hot war machine ( get the reference ?? ) or, in other terms their warship, the Argo II. They may achieve peace, but at what price??? Who will make the final sacrifice, and how high will the cost be???…….
Meanwhile a war is already going on, between the roman and Greek demigods, and bloodshed may be inevitable…….
They also have side adventures , like, oh, freeing death from his chains (long story) , rescuing a magical statue from a giant spider, falling into and trying to survive Tartarus ( which is like the Greek equivalent of monster hell) to name a few. Being demigods, this is what they are born for….
They have to survive, save the world, prevent a war that would cost hundreds of lives……
This series was amazing!!!! Though if you want to read this series, I recommend that you read the Percy Jackson series first, (otherwise you will be really confused). This is fantastic, and the author has a style of writing that keeps the reader interested throughout the series (the series is huge) and excited, and the books have so many unexpected twists and turns and side plots it’s impossible to predict what will happen next. You feel like you are actually in the character’s shoes, his/her feelings and situations are so well described.
I recommend this series for 10-11+ yrs. One great thing about this series is that both adults and children can read it. I give this book series 5/5 stars!!!
