Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #5 – The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

The final book in The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan has a lot to live up to. Four books of anticipation and hype towards Gaia’s resurrection, the conflict of the Gods, and the Greek and Roman demigod war, The Blood of Olympus has a difficult task of living up to the expectations set … Continue reading Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #5 – The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #4 – The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Its been a while since I’ve written a book review. Publishing my own book was a rather hectic couple of months. But I’m happy to have dived back in with The Heroes of Olympus – The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. It took a moment to adjust back into the groove of reading, thankfully … Continue reading Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #4 – The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #3 – The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

Continuing down Rick Riordan's The Heroes of Olympus series, The Mark of Athena adds an interesting, though somewhat messy, continuation of the series. Having seven major characters in a story is a difficult task, one I’ve studied and tried to work towards as well. Riordan does a good job in some cases, however its hard … Continue reading Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #3 – The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

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. As expected, his work is wonderfully interwoven with mythology and makes for a fun and character focused adventure. But its hard to ignore certain imperfections … Continue reading Book Review: The Heroes of Olympus #1 – The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Book Review: Night of the Dragon (Shadow of the Fox #3) by Julie Kagawa

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. When I finished Night of the Dragon by Julie Kagawa, I felt an overwhelming feeling of what I can only describe as somber joy. I finished … Continue reading Book Review: Night of the Dragon (Shadow of the Fox #3) by Julie Kagawa

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

Book Review: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard – The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

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
