The whole plot & everything wa Complete 5 Golden Stars & thousands more! the Lost Hero: ★★★★(★)/5 the Son of Neptune: ★★★★(★)/5 the Mark of Athena: ★★★★★/5 the House of Hades: ★★★★★/5 the Blood of Olympus: ★★★★★/5 Did anyone notice their names (except book 1) have an Olympian name!? son of Neptune, Mark of Athena, House of Hades, Blood of Olympus omg! I noticed that in my 3rd re-read! Hail Rick Riordan! he is a Genius! Heroes of Olympus, another series of Sacrifices, Love & Bravery. beautiful & compassionate. The whole plot & everything was magnificent! & this Plot definitely needed such a (strange yeah, but I recently noticed I actually like it) beginning. & especially when they're altogether, the Seven Half-Bloods, the plot actually started to be more exciting, exhilarating, amazing & funny! I totally can forget about the first two not reaching 5 stars (which now they're nearly 5 themselves too!) & give a Complete 5 stars to this series regardless! because it deserves it. Everything is gorgeous, elegant, full of excitements & fun & believable & everything! Every characters are believable & amazing & lovable, I can't decide who I love more! (This always happened in my favourite series, or I love these books when this happened.) Percy, Jason, Annabeth, Nico, Coach Hedge, Will, Reyna, Frank, Hylla, Ella, everyone at Camp Half-blood. (Everyone except Octavian!) Riordan also knows how to make good villains; all of the main villains, Kronos, Gaea & their funny stupid minions are my favourites. I usually don't like female villains, because they're vicious, & screaming a lot when things not according to what they wanted, some of them sadistic, so I find them annoying. but here, in this series, with Riordan, we have many fantastic female villains; Gaea herself, smart, plotter & know-it-all, Khione, Cold & taunting, Arachne & several more. the writing style has changed comparing to 'Percy Jackson' series which was first person all the way, & this is third person & multiple POV characters, but Riordan has already proved how powerful & magnificent he can write, & different POV characters chapters totally has different voices & tunes which is truly awesome & enjoyable. the only problem with multiple POVs is sometimes I want to continue one's story with more enthusiasm than others & I should hold myself back not to skip chapters; for two reasons, story integrity & chapters are mostly connected. which is not really a problem. but I'm telling you, they all are interesting & exciting & funny by themselves too & author has put his effort & time on them. <3 Also I don't want to kill the suspense for myself! that actually the ignition to continue reading in a faster speed! I remembered I kind of wished (in PJO) that it would be awesome if they (view spoiler)[traveled to Greece (hide spoiler)] too. & BOOM! My wish was granted! just in case, I kind of wished we had some story in (view spoiler)[gods' perspective too, & yep I got that too! guess what? it is about my favourite god, Apollo! (hide spoiler)] I feel so lucky & so happy! I love when authors do that! they show us all the aspects of the world. here, the retelling of the myths & travel to the ancient lands. I can't decide which series I love more, Percy Jackson or the Heroes of Olympus! Percy jackson was more fun & a little middle grade at first, Heroes of Olympus has more dangerous serious business, the characters are older, a bit of romance & ships & less fun comparing. so I love them both in their own way! don't make me choose between my babies! - World building: ★★★★★/5 Plot: ★★★★★/5 Written style: ★★★★★/5 Characters: ★★★★★/5 Idea: ★★★★★/5

    After Percy Jackson and the Olympians, we came to the next series. For my small children, I have some of the same regrets with letting them read it/reading it to them -- the romance, the language, the violence. Also, one of the main characters turns out to be gay. When reading with small children, it's nice to know going in, I think. Speaking of that, I thought it was interesting that Rick Riordan clearly gave priority to diversity.

The main characters are five white kids (one of whom is gay), one black kid, one Chinese Canadian kid, and one Mexican American kid. Three of the main characters are girls and the other five are boys. The funny thing I thought was that the two main couples are white. I know this is going to sound strangely critical when he made SUCH an obvious effort at diversity, but I still thought was interesting that he drew the line there. Overall, I like the main characters. I like that they have different personalities, strengths, and powers. I like that the girls are as essential and powerful as the boys. And again it's fun to see the familiar myths modernized.

    I liked this series more than I liked the original. Maybe because the characters were older in this. I loved the blend of Greek and Roman mythology and how Athena loses herself in Roman culture. I liked a lot of the new characters, especially Reyna and the Amazons (who run Amazon, lol). I also loved the contrast between Jason and Percy, Jason being the more traditional hero and Percy being the unconventional goofball who gets lucky. Nico's coming out was a surprise, but I did like how Jason handl I liked this series more than I liked the original. Maybe because the characters were older in this.

    Since I finished this box set in July 2020, I now don't remember too much about it. But I know I love it! I kinda wish I had read it immediately after finishing the Percy Jackson series, as it follows after that series a few months later! I really liked the Roman demigods. Jason, Hazel, and Frank (I think those were their names), were great! And I loved being reunited with Percy, Annabeth, and Nico in these stories! Here are the dates I read these five books: 1.

    I really liked the Heroes of Olympus series, but I don't think it is as good as the original Percy Jackson books. I loved the first two books, The Lost Hero and the Son of Neptune, but I felt like the books lost their way a little bit during The Mark of Athena and The House of Hades. I think this is a function of the fact that there were so many characters to keep track of. Moreover, I guess I found the books challenging because there were characters that I liked more than others so I preferred I really liked the Heroes of Olympus series, but I don't think it is as good as the original Percy Jackson books.

I think this is a function of the fact that there were so many characters to keep track of. Moreover, I guess I found the books challenging because there were characters that I liked more than others so I preferred their points of view. For example, I would much rather read chapters involving Percy, Annabeth, Frank, Hazel or Nico (in book 5) than chapter involving Jason, Piper or Leo. Perhaps I was being unfair to some of the newer characters because they were unfamiliar. However, I don't think that was the case. I found Jason to be very vanilla and Leo irritated me for about 2/3's of the series (I ended up being won over by him, but it took a long time.) Piper didn't bother me, but I wanted more out of her story-lines. That said some of the action is great and the idea of rival Greek and Roman camps who may go to war with each other is a great concept.

    I give this entire series a 5/5 because, in short, it was awesome. I first read this series a year or two ago, and I liked it; it was good, but for some reason I always remembered it as, like, it was good... when I was fourteen, and that it was slightly childish. My prior notions about this series just disintegrated. Completely untrue. I just reread this series (because I was in a mood and wanted to) and I loved it. I loved it more than I did the first time I read this series. Somehow, this seri I give this entire series a 5/5 because, in short, it was awesome.

This was an amazing series, the Greek and Roman mythology were artfully blended into the plot line and the twists were very smart. The entire series is very well done, and I loved the characters (especially the "brought back" characters). Overall, this series is mind-blowingly awesome and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

    A year ago, my friend and I reread this series to make a YouTube review. Today I'm mutilating it on Google Docs (and other YA books I suffered through in highschool) to see if I can put my money where my mouth is, and improve them. Here's what I've learned: "Shimmering,""shining," "glittering," "sparkling" "bright," and other adjectives that have to do with light are go-to cliches when writers describe things. Sticking the word "little," "big," or "old," before objects is usually redundant. Dialogu A year ago, my friend and I reread this series to make a YouTube review. Today I'm mutilating it on Google Docs (and other YA books I suffered through in highschool) to see if I can put my money where my mouth is, and improve them. Here's what I've learned: "Shimmering,""shining," "glittering," "sparkling" "bright," and other adjectives that have to do with light are go-to cliches when writers describe things. Sticking the word "little," "big," or "old," before objects is usually redundant. Dialogue tags are almost never necessary, let alone adjectives to describe how somebody said or did something. Most power comes from verbs. Short, simple sentences are under rated. Never state anything in narration you can show with an action. Don't abuse dialogue (or character thoughts) by using them to tell the audience things the story doesn't otherwise prove. Don't use characters thoughts to explain things. You can always show examples of anything you state. Broad terms rely on the readers imagination to do all the work. Don't say, "a gaggle of girls walked by." Describe one or two characters instead. You only need a few sentences to set an atmosphere. It's obvious when an author doesn't know how to imagine their own setting. Most adventure stories are only about eating food and getting rest. Sometimes bad guys show up and cause action scenes that work well enough as action paragraphs. There's rarely a mystery or goal that progresses meaningfully between one event and another. Main characters getting together substitutes resolution as nothing comes full circle. You can delete most main characters in a group except two or three. Describe a characters outfit or hairstyle in one or two sentences, if you must describe them at all. Adding "-ish" at the end of words is weak. Don't say "often," say "always," you coward. Or delete both. Banter and nicknames aren't personalities. Deleting these makes personalities even clearer. There's more power in the unironic than the painfully self aware ironic. A character's reaction to something doesn't have to be the reaction you want the reader to have, and definitely shouldn't be a crutch to produce it (rather than through the thing they're reacting to itself). The things that the story is about don't have to be the most intense version of it in the story. A relationship doesn't have to be described or portrayed as perfect. Anger doesn't have to be a searing hot, burning intensity that was definitely the deepest anger anyone in the universe ever felt. Never use the cliches, "his blood turned to liquid fire." Or "The blood in his veins turned to ice." If it's about blood or veins and temperature, it's a cliche. When a character is "suddenly pushed from behind" or "feels a pain searing through their head" don't say it. Show the mud they slid through as they were struck by a weight and hit their chin on the gravel. If action scenes must exist, don't use one word sentences, sarcastic quips or shortcut terms: "Suddenly There was a *insert sound effect* Pain exploded through his head As if the day couldn't get even more like a Marvel Movie." etc. Stories that self reference are over rated if they use it as a crutch. No need to go full last season of Phineas and Ferb about anything. The ideas weren't that great unless we remember them ourselves. If there's a ridiculous, random, goofy floating table, don't force us to conclude it's random and ridiculous. Don't keep harping on how, "and if you think that sentence is normal, you should read it again. Just another day in my insane life!" Just tell us there's a floating table. Cutesy words like, "abuzz" or "aflutter." "A gaggle of fairies flew by, abuzz with excitement." DELETE. It's okay to use some shortcuts like telling vs. showing or some adjectives if you're summarizing for some reason (possibly to begin or end a story/chapter/scene). It's okay if you have sentences with these things if it's clever, funny, or otherwise has a point. Don't use this as an excuse, because the vast majority of the time it's not. Why do YA authors describe everything as smelling bad? Smell is a sensory detail, so I get what they think they're doing. But when everything smells like cabbage, onions or dead fish, you're not embellishing reality at that point. And why is it always cabbage? And why do they always eat bread and cheese? Or if it's the modern days, eggs and bacon? The least time you spend hearing a characters "thoughts" the better. (Unless they're exceptionally clever or profound). You always have to rewrite endings of YA books, because they don't actually have conclusions, only sequels. Why do characters always have a special "face?" i.e. "It was her give-me-Percy-Jackson-or-I'll-Kill-You face." These sentences rarely add anything in the first place, and can be deleted. Why do characters always roll their eyes at each other and get flustered with each other so easily? "As if, you know how to cook, Max." "Max shot him a glare." etc. Conflict can be a necessity in interaction, but this is cheap. The no-nonsense girl and goofy boy stereotype is overused anyway. Why always shorten names whenever friends talk to each other? Why should Peter, Henry or Gabrielle, have to endearingly get called Pet, Hen, and Gab? I've never done this to my friends in real life or heard them do it. How are teenage crushes so noble and beautiful that they save the universe? "Love is the most important thing of all." Not if you mean teenage crushes. Rhetorical questions? NO. When a writer says somebody "made their way" to something, it means they don't know what they're trying to picture and are using a band-aid. Same with words like: sprawled took off disappeared into the night crossed over to etc. Of course, these are just some of the technical issues.

    Another good series. I think I like the original series better, but this was still enjoyable to read. I especially liked book 2 because it had so much of Percy being cool. During books 3-5 the group did a lot of go somewhere, fight something, and move on, which, I suppose is okay, it just wasn't essential to the plot. Also, I found Percy didn't do quite as much as he did in the original series, but I guess that's to be expected since it's not HIS series anymore.

    This series is one of the best I've read by far, after reading Percy Jackson it's nice to have new characters introduced in the same magical universe, while also bringing back the characters fans have fallen in love with. Another thing I enjoy about this book is the diversity. A mixture of genders, sexualities, and races is great for children to learn at a younger age instead of reading solely about white, straight, male heroes, who are usually who I find to be the main character in YA novels.

    This series is my absolute favorite of all time! It has everything, comedy, action, romance and characters beyond my imagination. Rich Riordan is a god at writing and everything he touches becomes gold. These books simply cannot be unread by anybody. Once you start you will find that nothing will make you able to put down those books because something is always happening.

IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THOSE BOOKS YET, STOP READING MY REVIEW AND START READING THE LIGHTNING THIEF!!! Ohmygosh, this series is freaking awesome! I love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and the premise for this new series, The Heroes of Olympus, kind of worried me a bit, which is why I'm behind on reading. Which actually worked out for me, cause I got to read the whole series without having to wait a year between books! I freaking love binge-reading. Anywho, Rick Riordan has created a fantastic squeal series, weaving together seven POVs together seamlessly, making me care a lot for each individual character, and loving the chemistry when everyone is together. For those of you who've read the Percy Jackson series, The Lost Hero picks up several weeks after the end of The Last Olympian. And if you haven't read the first series yet, get on it! It's amazing! The Prophecy of Seven Seven half-bloods shall answer the call, To storm or fire, the world must fall. An oath to keep with a final breath, And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death. So for the last series, we got to deal with the second Titan war, and the evil Titan Kronos. Well, we've upgraded now. Time to deal with giants (even worse than Titans) and the Earth Mother herself, Gaea. Fun times right? How about not. The Prophecy of Seven, spoken by our new Orcale of Delphi, Rachel Elizabeth Dare, is basically about the end of the world. If Gaea rises, that's it, apocalypse and death and destruction ensured. The Seven demigods are going to need all their strength to band together and save the world. There's just one pesky problem: we're not dealing with only Greek demigods. We've also got Roman demigods, too, and the two groups don't really get along. Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter don't even know about each other, and for good reason. Anytime the two interact, wars are started. Not to mention that the gods are getting a bit schizophrenic having to deal with split personalities of both their Roman and Greek sides. Not only do our heroes of Olympus need to find each other, but they have to fight against everything trying to keep them from succeeding in their quest (ehem Gaea cough cough), facing dangers worse than they've ever imagined. I simply love the multiple character POVs throughout the series. I mean, Percy's always been my favorite, and I of course would want his POV more than others, but Riordan creates such amazing characters that it gets hard choosing a favorite. I especially love the character POV for the last novel in the series, Blood of Olympus. Since this is a review for the whole series and not just one specific book, I don't want to give too much away, but it's not that hard to figure out who the Seven are. They make an awesome team, and I have complete faith that they will fulfill the newest Great Prophecy. A team this in sync can do anything. But Gaea is eternal, and she's got an army. We're going to need everyone's power, strength, courage, and intelligence mixed together to even stand a chance of stopping the Earth Mother. No biggie. Easy peasy. Ha. But seriously, Riordan has so much character development throughout the series, and none of it feels rushed or forced at all, that it's like I'm growing right alongside these characters. Each individual character arc seems completely natural, and Riordan effortlessly weaves all seven different character-stories together to make one hell of a series. If you haven't read The Heroes of Olympus series, get on it ASAP. You're really missing out. “Being a hero doesn’t mean you’re invincible. It just means that you’re brave enough to stand up and do what’s needed.”

I like her more than Jason, but she also sometimes gets on my nerves. She deserves appreciation for everything that she's done because she's done plenty of great things. I'm just not her biggest fan. Leo Valdez- There is so much to say about Leo. I love him, he is amazing. He is one of my favorite characters in the series and in general. Badboy Supreme, Repair Boy, he has so many nicknames. I really enjoyed reading the 'Leo' chapters. Percy Jackson- Seaweed Brain, we got him back in the second book. He is one of my favorite characters ever. I feel as if we didn't get as much Percy in the series as we did Jason and even Piper, but that might just be me. Hazel Levesque- Hazel is such a strong and unique character. She is so amazing, I love her. She was the youngest of the Seven(view spoiler)[but at the same time, she was the oldest (hide spoiler)] , at only the age of 13. Frank Zhang- I really liked Frank. He was so strong, yet still a big teddy bear. There was so much character growth for every character, except mostly for him. He became for confident and I love it. Annabeth Chase- Wise Girl. It's actually her birthday today(the day I'm reviewing this anyway-July 12.) Like with Percy, I don't feel as we got as much time with her as we did with Jason and Piper, but I also feel we got more time with her than Percy. Again that could just be me, though. Annabeth is probably my favorite character ever, because I mean she is awesome. Reyna Avila Rameriez-Arellano- By the gods some call the fire department because this girl is on fire. Nevermind she doesn't need their help, she can handle it herself. Reyna is such a strong character. I can't believe how much she has had to deal with, yet she still holds her head up high. Nico di Angelo- He is probably my favorite male character ever, he is amazing and I love him. He has gone through so much and he is only 14(although he is only supposed to be 13). He has harbored so much pain and heartbreak, I just want to give him a hug. He is also my brother. Coach Hedge- I love this satyr. He is so awesome. He is always ready for a fight. Other Characters- Gaea, I hate her. The giants, I hate them, they are terrible. Who else? Octavian, I don't like him. Synopsis: The Plot-If you think about it, it's basically a bunch of teenagers trying to make sure that their great grandmother doesn't wake up. But I love the plot. The Ending- If you have read The Blood of Olympus, you would know. It is not my favorite but whatever. What I Loved- Pretty much everything. What I Didn't Love-Not really anything, except maybe Jason. Final Thoughts- Each book was amazing in their own way. The Lost Hero was my least favorite, though. Final Rating- Still a 5/5 stars.

At first I was weary of it and wasn't a fan. By the end of the 2nd book I was changing my views. It was the fact that RR kept changing the point of view that made me mad at first, as I was used to seeing it from only one( hem hem Percy), but as I started getting more into it I loved that he was switching between the different demigods. Then there was the whole Roman aspect of it that I didn't like. It was confusing at first to try and keep it straight but as time worn on I got the hang of it (meaning I started using the handy Greek to Roman thingy in the back of the books) and grew to love the added Roman aspect to it. Plus the more I read the more I realized just how much research went into this series and props to RR for getting it all and stuff. Now onward to the parts that will have spoilers. I did not like Jason at first not because he was Roman (which we didn't know till later) but because he wasn't Percy. And then I kept thinking that maybe he was a demigod pulled out of the past. Then we learn that he is Thalia's (hope that is spelled right) little brother. I grew to like him (never as much as others) but I respect him. I love Piper and Leo because they show us that it doesn't matter how you look or what you think of yourself. All the main characters had growth but to me the biggest were Piper, Leo, Frank, Hazel, and Nico. Yes Percy, Annabeth, and Jason grew more into themselves but not like the others. While a few of them had body growths, it was them learning who they were and learning to accept that but not just accepting it, using it so that they made a difference in the end. Like when Leo realized that it was his death in the end, he accepted it (of course he made a backup plan to come back to life) and put the plan into motion that would not only ensure victory but bring him back to his love, Calypso, but wait there is more: he finally gets her off that island. He understood the prophecy in the end and ran towards it with arms (covered in grease and such) wide open. I admit that there for a few minutes I thought he was a goner but then I put it all together and realized that he had the plan. In the end he understand that death couldn't always be stopped, just like Nico did in the end. I hope there will be more stories with Nico because he was just starting to come into his own. Okay I am done reviewing for now. I might add more later, I have no idea.

    When I started reading the first book, I was thrown off by the fact that it wasn't about Percy. It felt a little weird to be following around a random guy named Jason and have no clue what's going on with the hero you've spent the last five books building a relationship with. But that was exactly the point, and it worked out great. I liked the emotions and that confusion came through so well, the fact that no one really knew what was going on; it made it feel like we were on this journey togethe When I started reading the first book, I was thrown off by the fact that it wasn't about Percy.

But that was exactly the point, and it worked out great. I liked the emotions and that confusion came through so well, the fact that no one really knew what was going on; it made it feel like we were on this journey together. I think the ending of this book, which is the big "something changes everything" idea that I referred to earlier was PERFECT. It made so much sense and really brought the whole Greek mythology foundation of this series to another level. It really opened things up to different possibilities. I won't say what it is because the moment you realize what's happening is pretty great. Just trust me lol. I loved the cast of characters introduced in this series (as well the original ones, of course): Jason, Leo and Piper as the main three on the quest in the first book, along with some others that are introduced in later books. Once you read the second book and things all start fitting into place, there are a lot of characters that are brought into the story, and most of them are important. Throughout the series, these characters grew and made such an impression; they were well developed and had their own stories and personalities that I loved reading about. I am a sucker for books that have changing points of view, and Riordan does that wonderfully in this series. It's all in 3rd person POV, but when the chapters focus on individual characters, they take on the way the character thinks/speaks, which I thought was a great way to connect with them. They give you so much grief, joy, and anger... they're fantastic lol. There were a lot of couples involved in this series, and I don't want to say too much about them in particular, but some couples showed more growth than others. Percy and Annabeth have always been a great couple, but they put the rest to shame in this series lol. I loved the way they were together, both as a couple and as teammates/leaders/warriors/anything really. There was not enough Percy in the series though; you don't get his POV as much as I would have liked. read full review of the series at: http://shehlagrr.blogspot.com/2015/01...

    A brand new series of demigods!!! It has been a long time since the last time we finish Percy Jackson series, do you re-read it? I did it many time. But for this series…I’m not sure if I’ll re-read it that much. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great series, just like every other Rick Riordan's books. It goes on a fast pace, stories after stories. And also well organized, there's hardly any plot problems in it. But if I compared this series with Percy Jackson Series, I just say...Percy Jackson A brand new series of demigods!!!

Don't get me wrong, it's still a great series, just like every other Rick Riordan's books. It goes on a fast pace, stories after stories. And also well organized, there's hardly any plot problems in it. But if I compared this series with Percy Jackson Series, I just say...Percy Jackson is still better. Why? There are many reasons. First, In Percy Jackson, we can easily recognize every characters, because it's all narrative by Percy. While in The Heroes of Olympus, there are too many people and too many POV. It seems to me that the characters all have the same personality. Second, like I said, too many characters! I love to read books with different view, but we got too many here! It's too complicated and the plots just jump from here to there. It keeps changing scene. With different demigods we get different scene...oh my god that just too much! One or two scene in a book is all right, but more? Please don't.! Last but not least, many of the plots are similar to Percy Jackson, I even feel boring with them sometimes. This problem has change during the last few books, but in the previous books...come on! Give me something new! Although this series won't be my favorite series among all the books I own, but for those who love Rick Riordan's writing style should like this series as well. The plots are entertaining and we gets more loving characters. The books go in a fast pace so there'll seldom have any time murmuring. Even though I didn't enjoy it as much as I did in Percy Jackson, I still like it. So check out for yourselves! I assure that you'll like it too!

    Another great series by Rick Riordan, a phenomenal story is created when Rick comes up with the idea of combining greek and roman demigods. Although the first and second and third and pretty much all of the books are a little teeth-grinding, it is still a good read. Riordan never leaves the reader satisfied until the very end. In their journey, there are many plot twists, such as Nico being ___, and Leo _____. Overall, Riordan keeps it fresh and manages to captivate his readers all the while.

Many say that this is not as good a series as the first one, but this is only because this does not appeal to the readers as much. However, quality wise, this definitely matches with the first series. Another fresh surprise is that most of the mythology is pretty accurate, One would think that no one would want to listen all day about some dusty old gods but Riordan finds ways to not only have us learn about them, but be interested in them. New characters such as Jason are added and it changes the whole feel of the story. Now Percy isn't the main focus. There is an equal focus on all the party members and since we "bonded" with Percy so much in the first series, the reader may be unsatisfied. This feeling of equality is created by switching viewpoints whole the story progresses. This sometimes makes for a MASSIVE cliffhanger as one character does one thing and it suddenly switches to another. Still, this is a good book I would definitely recommend.

    It was a good series, but I didn't like it as much as the first Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. As a whole series, not bad, but not my favorite. There was a lot of aspects I had mixed feelings about: 1) Character Development - yes, lots of growth, but sometimes too "whiny teen", often too spelled out ("such and such had changed so much over the past year"....) 2) Diversity - yes, great to have ethnic diversity, and even included a gay character, but at the same time, it felt 'forced'-one o It was a good series, but I didn't like it as much as the first Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

If the diversity wasn't there, I wouldn't have missed it. 3) different ways of defeating enemies, not just through brute strength - yes, great to highlight mechanical ability, emotional instincts, using words, exploiting whatever weakness of the enemy, well-thought out planning....but sometimes it was just a unbelievable that they would win that easily. 4) Obstacles and mini-quests - kept the action going, but sometimes there were just too many pit-stops along the way to their destination. Sometimes it felt like they were just chasing rabbit trails. 5) Use of visions/dreams - some foreshadowing is good for suspense and build-up of anticipation, but sometimes it would've been nice to just let it unfold without any foreknowledge. There were plenty of 'surprises' in the books, and I loved those moments. Maybe I felt the visions just took away the element of surprise so it wasn't as exciting when it actually occurred.

    I read this series a while ago, but it’s absolutely a good read. It’s action packed; combining Greek gods, half bloods and monsters with the modern world. Percy and his friends take on quests and fight monsters and they must save the world before time runs out.
