Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan


The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus #1)
The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus #2)

I've been a big fan of Rick Riordan's books about Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods, heroes and monsters for quite a while and obviously jumped at the chance of reading more. This series brings a twist to it - say hello to Romans! I won't say any more than that, because that's already in ever so slightly Spoiler Land (though it's so obvious right from the beginning). Anyway, all I'll really say about these are:

If you liked the previous books about Percy, this series is a must read! The writing style is great, the stories are captivating and the characters are mostly really sweet.

The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, #3) came out in 2012 (and I'm waiting to read it) and  The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus, #4) is due to be published in 2013. Furthermore a 5th untitled instalment is expected in 2014.

  1. This book is FAB. It is so much thrilling that I have already read it 6 times.However what appears as a great improvement is the emotional flow of the characters. The way they feel for each other. Their connection to their parents(esp Piper's father, though is ignorant most times, but still she dares to risk everything for him), Annabeth's concern for Percy(though the book is certainly not 'bout them).
    And the mysterious style always there with Riordan, You won't find the answers until you get to the last page.
