Blood of Olympus Review

Hello reader,
I've been busy reading lately.So after a year long wait, I finally finished Blood of Olympus-the last book of The Heroes of Olympus.As usual, most Percy Jackson fans must have finished reading this but for those who haven't, here's the review:
The books starts of a little after the end of House of Hades.The seven demigods have to face a large number of obstacles as they try to reach Athens to stop Gaia before the Feast of Spes. On the other hand, war is raging between the two demigod camps and it is up to Reyna, Nico and Coach Hedge to deliver the Athena Parthenos to camp Half-Blood to stop the war and unite the gods.The book shifts between Jason, Piper, Leo,Reyna and Nico's P.O.V.There is a lot of character development for them but unfortunately very little of Percy and Annabeth is seen in the book.The book does have many plot twists but it seemed predictable in a few places due to the subtle hints across the series.The humor is much more developed and does not seem out of place anymore.Overall, it is a fitting end to the series and honestly, it couldn't have been any better(though I wish it was longer!!).
So if you haven't read it yet, please go ahead and read it while I go ponder upon what the epilogue could have been (if there was one)
If you have read it, tell us what you feel about it in the comments below.
Till then, Read, Write and Relish!!

  1. I so wish it was a bit longer. Like really? Gaia just rises and she's dead already, so easily? That disappointed me.
    But overall, Uncle Rick rocks!!
