I am starting full-time work soon and graduating in four weeks. My blog will be the same in regards to regular posts but my book reviews will be a lot different. Since I mainly read books that are 5 stars and I love them my reviews sound the same. I will be writing mini-talks and giving you my favorite quotes. I am so busy and I don’t want blogging to become a chore so I am going to try reviewing this way to be more manageable and enjoyable.
Nico had warned them. Going through the House of Hades would stir the demigods’ worst memories. Their ghosts would become restless. Nico may actually become a ghost if he has to shadow-travel with Reyna and Coach Hedge one more time. But that might be better than the alternative: allowing someone else to die, as Hades foretold.
Jason’s ghost is his mother, who abandoned him when he was little. He may not know how he is going to prove himself as a leader, but he does know that he will not break promises like she did. He will complete his line of the prophecy: To storm or fire the world must fall.
Reyna fears the ghosts of her ancestors, who radiate anger. But she can’t allow them to distract her from getting the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half-Blood before war breaks out between the Romans and Greeks. Will she have enough strength to succeed, especially with a deadly hunter on her trail?
Leo fears that his plan won’t work, that his friends might interfere. But there is no other way. All of them know that one of the Seven has to die in order to defeat Gaea, the Earth Mother.
Piper must learn to give herself over to fear. Only then will she be able to do her part at the end: utter a single word.
Heroes, gods, and monsters all have a role to play in the climactic fulfillment of the prophecy in The Blood of Olympus, the electrifying finale of the best-selling Heroes of Olympus series.
The ending of the Heroes of Olympus was one of my favorites in the series. It was just as action-packed and enjoyable as the rest. My favorite part was getting a point-of-view from Reyna who is representation for Puerto Ricans (which is part of what I am) which made me so happy because she is so badass. And we also get to hear from Nico which is awesome because he had major growth from his first appearance in the Percy Jackson series. I also liked how the ending is bittersweet because we know Leo is alive and well but his friends don’t so that was sad. The book was explosive from beginning to end and I could not get enough.
I am the son of Hades, he thought. I go where I wish. The darkness is my birthright.
It didn’t seem to matter how much he resented Percy Jackson. Nico would do anything for him. He hated himself for that.
But too much love is poison, especially when that love is not returned.
If he had to die, he would die a son of Jupiter, a child of the gods—the blood of Olympus.
“So this is where the rivalry started,” Percy said. “Yeah.” Percy pulled Annabeth close and kissed her…long…”The rivalry ends here,” Percy said. “I love you, Wise Girl.”
“We had one home,” she said. “Now we have two.” She gave Nico a big hug and the crowd roared with approval. For once, Nico didn’t feel like pulling away. He buried his face in Reyna’s shoulder and blinked the tears out of his eyes.
