The Mark of Athena, by Rick Riordan+
The Mark of Athena is about how Annabeth, with her friends, finds the Athena Parthenon. In the beginning, Annabeth and Percy are reunited and Jason is back home. While they are at the Roman demigod camp, Leo is possessed by an eidola who makes him blow up a building. The Romans get mad and chase the Argo II throughout the book. I really like this book because like in all the books you connect with the characters. And you really must have the next book ready because this one ends on a giant cliffhanger.
Bottom line: They get scarier, because the characters go into creepier places, as they progress. I really like them. They are still amazing. This one is for 5th grade and older.
The Lost Hero, by Rick Riordan+
This book has Percy, Grover, and Annabeth but it starts new series. It introduces many new characters. The three main are Jason, Piper, and Leo. They all go to Wilderness Boarding School. Jason wakes up holding hands with a girl that says she is his girlfriend and a guy that says he is his best friend. The girl, Piper, has a really big secret; her dad has been missing for three days! The guy, Leo, is really good with tools. While on a field trip, there is a freak storm and some weird creatures appear. The three friends are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-blood. And then they all end up going on a big adventure.
Bottom line: This is a great book. I love all of Rick Riordan’s things. I think this book is for about 5th graders and older. This book has more violence because it is meant for older kids. But I still recomend this wonderful book.
The Last Olympian, by Rick Riordan+
Percy is frightened it is almost his 16th birthday and he is hoping he is not the child the rises or ruins Mount Olympus. The titan Kronos is battle ready. And Percy has to defend Mount Olympus without the gods because they are off battling the giant Typhon.
Bottom Line: This Percy Jackson book has the most fighting and dying. This book is not as scary but you have some really big scary moments. I think this book is for 4th and higher just because of how much fighting there is.
I’m Going to give you guys a little treat.
This is the great prophecy!
A half-blood to the eldest gods
Shall reach sixteen against all odds
And see the world in endless sleep
The hero’s soul, cursed blade shall reap
A single choice shall end his days
Olympus to preserve or raze.
Tell me is you liked me giving you the prophecy, please.
The Battle of the Labyrinth, by Rick Riordan+
It’s freshman orientation for Percy, and he’s not expecting it to be any fun. But when he is pursued by demon cheerleaders and meets a mysterious mortal acquaintance, it doesn’t get any better. He makes his way to Camp Half-blood to find that monsters are about to penetrate its once impenetrable borders. He and his friends have to go into the labyrinth to find the creator of this horrifyingly hard maze and most likely won’t find their way out in time to save to world from the Titans. Can they do it? Read and see!
Bottom line: As I will always say, it does have fights and deaths. I also will say that the books are increasingly scary. Although they are so worth it. I would say this book is for 4th, 5th, or higher because they are scary!
The Titans Curse, by Rick Riordan+
This is another Percy Jackson book. Artemis the Goddess of the hunt has been kidnapped while hunting the trail of a monster that could destroy Olympus. Percy, Annabeth, and Grover and others are left to find Artemis and kill this monster. They need to do both before the winter solstice. They need to get Artemis back so soon because she is the glue that holds the counsel of gods together. I like the book because it makes you laugh and you are sad at some parts. But in the end there is always another mystery unfolding so you are in suspense in till you can read the next book.
Bottom line I recommend it. Like all the other Percy Jackson books there are fights and main characters do die.
The Sea of Monsters, by Rick Riordan+
This is another Percy Jackson book. Percy had has a very uneventful 7th grade year. But is being followed around by a 6ft-3 big baby called Tyson. So he has no friends that aren’t Tyson. His satyr friend named Grover is captured on island Polyphemus’ island that is in the Sea of Monsters. Also the magical borders of camp half-blood are failing. And the only way to save camp half-blood is to find the Golden Fleece which is on Polyphemus’ island. I like it because it is funny but a good adventure story.
Bottom line: I recommend it. It does have fights and deaths. I would say its for 4th, 5th, or older. if you are under age I recommend asking your mom or dad to review it before you do.
The Lightning Thief, By Rick Riordan+
This is an ancient Greek story that is put in modern times. For example, Mt. Olympus is over the Empire State Building. Mount Tam is over the San Diego Pier. And the underworld entrance is also in San Diego Pier. Percy Jackson is the main character. He gets kicked out of every school every year. Percy is on a vacation with his mother when he is attacked by a monster. His friend Annabeth brings him to Camp Half-blood where he meets many mythic characters and demi-gods and they send him on a quest. I really loved the book because it is exciting and you really love the characters.
Bottom line: It does have fights and deaths. But it is a really good book and you will love it. So yeah, I recommend it. I think this book is for 4th or 5th graders. If you are under the ages I think would be good I would ask my mom to look at it before you do.
