Read + Review — The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan


Blood of Olympus by Rick RiordanThe seven demigods; Percy, Annabeth, Hazel, Frank, Jason, Piper, and Leo, near the end of their quest to prevent Gaea, Mother Earth, from rising. In the mean time Reyna, Nico, and Coach Hedge make their way to return the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half Blood to restore peace between the Romans and the Greeks. As they face difficulties throughout the tasks, they unlock their deepest secrets and fears, but what they all fear is that one of the seven must sacrifice themselves in to destroy Mother Earth. Who will it be? What happens next? Read the books to find out.

The book was very well written. A few of the parts of the book were confusing, and I often had to read back to see what was going on. The author though, did a very good job of keeping you interested in the book and leaving off at cliff hangers. I also enjoyed how the book was written in multiple perspectives. It showed you how everyone felt about the different situations. The author could have done a better job to make it understandable, but overall, it was incredibly involving and there was action in every scene. I definitely loved this book and totally recommend it to other tweens/teens.

I liked the relations between the characters and I liked how the author incorporated the lives and drama of each of the characters while completely indulging in the action. It was very well written and will teach and important lesson about friendships and trust.
