I just didn’t love Blood of Olympus as much as the other books in this series or the original Percy books. By this point in the story universe, there are too many moving parts and minor characters to keep track of easily. There’s plenty of action and dialogue, but for me the character development halted. It’s not a bad book, not in the least, but it doesn’t measure up to the others.

The ending, however, is good. ( )

Beyond amazing! I still want more! Always will but a great ending to a great series. I LOVEd getting some new perspectives and how complete this story became. I loved all the characters and where they wound up! A great and fast read! Get on it! ( )

Bummed with the lack of Percabeth if I'm being completely honest. Why did they not get POVs?? Those are genuinely the best part. Also, speaking of things that were lacking: Sally Jackson and Paul Blofis. You expect me to believe Percy called his mom once in Alaska and then didn't call her again?? I know if anyone tried to stop him from calling her, he would RIOT.

Still not a fan of the casually sexist comments, like people screaming "like a girl" or how the Athena and Aphrodite girls are the ones who are excited about the baby.

I love that Rick Riordan always wraps up everyone's stories. Like everyone gets their epilogue. I would hate it so much if it were like tension builds, BATTLE, the end. Like, having the little details helps so much.

I don't love Jason and Piper (or Hazel and Frank kinda), honestly, but I love Percabeth, and Nico and Will, and Calypso and Leo. Those three are chefs kiss, I don't know why I don't care about Jason and Piper, I just don't. I also love all the friendships. Like, seeing Nico build better relationships, and his whole no-physical-contact thing and not sharing and expecting people to not want him around, and then Will telling him I want you around, and Jason hugging him, and Nico's conversations with Reyna. And all the teasing among the group. Like all of the relationships are so fun. Also, Hazel and Nico are such a good duo. ( )

The last book in the Heroes of Olympus series. It was an intense read and gave me all the feels.

There are a few short stories in the back of some of the books in the box set that I own, I think I'll read them at a later time when I start to miss Percy and Annabeth. ( )

Epigraph
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.
Dedication
To my wonderful readers.
Sorry about that apology for that last cliffhanger.
I'll try to avoid cliffhangers in this book.
Well, except for maybe a few small ones...
because I love you guys.
