Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan


I was recently sent Heroes Olympus- The Blood of Olympus to read and review. I was very excited to review this book because I love the Percy Jackson films and everyone knows the books are usually always better than the films.

The blurb:


‘The ruins are up there,’ Piper promised. ‘I saw them in Katoptris’s blade. And you heard what Hazel said. “The biggest_'”

‘”The biggest gathering of evil spirits I’ve ever sensed,'” Jason recalled. ‘Yeah, sounds awesome.’

After battling through the underground temple of Hades, the last thing Jason wanted was to deal with more evil spirits. But the fate of the quest was at stake. The crew of Argo II had a big decision to make.

If they chose wrong, they would fail, and the entire world would be destroyed…..

When it arrived, I was a little overwhelmed by the size because it is massive!


It actually didn’t take me very long to read at all. I really enjoyed the storyline and wanted to keep reading on. But I imagine if fantasy fiction is not your cup of tea, it would probably take you a while to read.

If you, like me, enjoy the films then this is definitely a book to read. And as I predicted, it is better the films.

My tween has not read it yet, but I intend to let him as I do think he will enjoy it. If your child can read Harry Potter then they will be able to read this book.

This book is full of adventure, has a great storyline, has cliffhangers all the way through and it’s a book for a whole range of ages from 12 to 120 🙂 I definitely recommend and give it an 9/10.

If you would like this book, it’s available to purchase on Amazon for a bargain £7!

I was sent this book for review but all words and opinions are my own.
