This book is the fifth and final installment in "The Heroes of Olympus" series by Rick Riordan. This series is about demigods in greek mythology. If you did not know, this is a companion series to the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series which I HIGHLY recomend. I also recomend reading the PJO series before HOO!!
So guys overall this book was amazing! In star rating I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars. This book was not the best of all the Percy Jackson books though. Sadly, it didn't exactly meet my expectations. But personally I love this series so much and every book is amazing for me! I strongly suggest this series if you have not read it! So this is really all I can tell you without spoiling anything so bye if you have not read the book!
Ok, well the thing that made me dislike this book was that there was almost no Percy. Not only were there no Percy chapters but in the story overall there was not much said about him. Also, I feel like he was portrayed as a very dumb character in this book. I thought that Percy did not feel like Percy in this book which really bugged me.
On the other hand, I really enjoyed the Reyna and Nico chapters. I thought they were very necessary in the story for me to actually warm up to these characters. Also, I loved the scenes in Viejo San Juan because I am from there so it was really nice for an author to include my island in his story!
Now the ending. Here is where I spoil everything. I really was expecting more from the ending. I would have liked for Leo to go back to Camp Half-Blood so that everyone would be sure that he was alive. But I loved the fact that the story ended in a Leo chapter because out of all of the POVs in the story, Leo's is definitely my favorite. I was very satisfied with Leo and Calypso but I would have liked a "Welcome-Back" party for Leo.
- So guys that is my overall review. This is a wonderful book and this is by far my favorite series ever.
