Finishing a series is bittersweet. I am always so excited to reach the end and find out how the story plays out, but it’s very hard for me to let go. I spend all this time with the characters in these amazing worlds and then suddenly it’s over. I have to say goodbye and return to my everyday life. I feel as though I’m losing close friends and closing the door on an entire world.
As you no doubt guessed, I have finally finished The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan, the final book in The Heroes of Olympus series. It was a thrilling novel and I am very happy with it, but there were a few unanswered questions. Had I read this when it came out, I may have been irritated by the questions, but I know that we see some of these characters in the next series, The Trials of Apollo.
Despite the unanswered questions, this book was fantastic. It was exciting from start to finish and while it wasn’t my favorite in the series, (The House of Hades for the win!) it was well written and hilarious just like the rest of Rick Riordan’s books, and it did contain some of my favorite scenes of the series, including some kick-ass battles and an oh-so-adorable Percabeth scene that made me squeal.
My only complaint is that I wish I could have seem from all the main demigod’s perspectives. I understand why Rick left some of them out; it would have been a bit much to keep up with all those points of view. Though I love them all dearly, I will miss Percy’s perspective the most. He’s out main man, the star of the show, and though I’m sure he appears in the other books, this was our last with Percy as one of the main characters. He is one of my favorite characters of all time and losing his voice as a narrator is like losing a piece of my heart.
This book was wonderful and I am so happy to have completed this series. It is now one of my all time favorites and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
4.75/5 stars to The Blood of Olympus and 5,000,000/5 stars to The Heroes of Olympus as a whole.
