Heroes of Olympus Series Book Talk

Hello everyone! Today I am going to do a book talk for the Heroes of Olympus series. I'll do a 3-5 sentence book talk on each book.  There are spoilers so beware...



The Lost Hero- Rick did a great job of starting the series with this book. Introducing the 3 new characters was awesome. I thought it was a great book except for the fact that Leo did everything while Jason and Piper stood around looking pretty.

The Son of Neptune- Yay Percy! I was so amazed and happy when Rick introduced the Romans and Camp Jupiter. Frank was totally awesome and can shape-shift. Hazel's story is super cool. The ending was a total cliffhanger.

The Mark of Athena- This book was amazing. Annabeth's quest to follow the Mark of Athena was amazing. I loved the ending where Annabeth outsmarted Arachne, that was pretty cool. Another scary cliffhanger where Annabeth and Percy plunge into Tartarus.

The House of Hades- I can't even imagine what Tartarus is like. That's scary. I didn't really pay attention to the other part of the plot except for Piper who was amazing. The ending was amazing once again (BOB NO) but still ended on a stupid cliffhanger. (I still can't believe Nico.)

The Blood of Olympus- DAT ENDING THO. Fabulous book, just wow. I was so happy when Nico and Reyna got a part, that was cool. The ending made me cry. They will never know if Leo was alive or not. *sobs* THERE WAS A DOCTOR WHO REFERENCE. just saying

The best part is, Rick tweeted that he might be coming out with another series. YAS

MY OPINION ON THE CHARACTERS

Jason- In the first book, Jason was pretty useless. But as time went on he became awesome. I was super annoyed by the fact that he has no sense of humor whatsoever but I got over that.

Piper- Piper. Is. Cool. She is super strong and has saved Jason so many times, he can't even repay her. She was awesome throughout the series and is so fabulous I just can't.

Leo- THE LADIES LUV LEO. He is soooo awesome and funny. He is one of my favorites and he can turn the most serious situation into a time where everyone died laughing. I WANT HIM TO BE MY BEST FRIEND.

Percy- We all know Percy has some mad fighting skills. Plus he makes the craziest jokes. I just felt he wasn't so loving towards Annabeth. He barely mentioned how much he loved her in any of his chapters.

Hazel- Hazel's power is so cool. She is so awesome and is totally independent. Plus, she has the wackiest story which is so cool.

Frank- Oh my gerd FRANK. He has the best power, which is turning into animals. That is so cool and he was totally underestimated. He was probably the most calm even though he's a son of Ares/Mars.

Annabeth- Annabeth in the Mark of Athena was amazing. She kicked butt throughout the series and never failed to live up to my expectations.


I hope you enjoyed this long post, I had a lot of fun writing it!

Thanks for reading,
Noor

  1. I really want to read this series but i haven't had the chance yet. The books seem really good. I skimmed some parts of the book so it wouldn't ruin the books. You should do more book talks, I loved reading this one.

  4. I'm not a big fan of the Percy Jackson series, but I know lots of people enjoy it. I have only read to The Mark of Athena and I agree with most of the points you make.
