Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #2 – The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Continuing the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan, I expected more of the same as The Lost Hero. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Riordan broke away from his typical formula and created a trio that were all equally magnificent. Exploring more Roman archetypes and their pantheon, I was happy to see the … Continue reading Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #2 – The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #1 – The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

It’s been a rough couple of months with very little reading so I thought I’d dive back into Rick Riordan’s world with The Heroes of Olympus – The Lost Hero.

Every now and then, a book will make you feel something you hadn't expected, a feeling that takes you by surprise but one that you welcome openly and happily.

Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard – The Hammer of Thor

Oh my goodness there are quite a few disclaimers for this book. First and foremost the ending does have spoilers for The Heroes of Olympus series. I believe now that Riordan intended for his audience to read the books in order so I won’t be finishing the series until I read the previous series unfortunately. … Continue reading Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard – The Hammer of Thor

Ever since I finished the Percy Jackson series, I felt more inspired to continue my own writing. The infusion of Greek mythology and modern day life (modern for the time I suppose) was a fun twist. When I picked up Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard box set, I imagined that it would be … Continue reading Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard – The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Book Review: Percy Jackson and The Olympians – The Last Olympian

The end of the Percy Jackson series, Percy Jackson and The Olympians - The Last Olympian is a fun and enjoyable read. It’s drenched in references and character growth that makes the series worth investing in.

Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Olympians – The Battle of The Labyrinth

Continuing the Percy Jackson series, The Battle of The Labyrinth feels a lot more action packed than the previous novels. There’s also a surprising amount of character development, however not all of it is for the best unfortunately. I will say however if you do read the book to ignore the reviews on the back … Continue reading Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Olympians – The Battle of The Labyrinth

Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Olympians – The Titan’s Curse

Continuing my journey through the Percy Jackson series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians – The Titan’s Curse proves to be an exciting and fun story. I didn’t expect to have my own perception of Greek heroes scrutinized to the degree we see here. I wasn’t expecting The Titan’s Curse to be as dark and complex … Continue reading Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Olympians – The Titan’s Curse
