unnamed (1)

Another set of books written by Rick Riordan about Greek Mythology and our favorite hero Percy Jackson. But this time, he also included Roman Mythology in his works.

The Lost Hero

In this book, you get to meet Jason Grace, son of Jupiter as he was brought to Camp Half Blood without any recollection about his identity. You will also meet Leo Valdez, son of Hephaestus, Coach Gleeson Hedge, a satyr disguised as their teacher and Piper McLean, daughter of Aphrodite, who believes that Jason is her boyfriend even if the guy doesn’t remember her. They met Annabeth, who was so stressed because she’s looking for her boyfriend Percy who’s been missing for three days. Annabeth brought them to camp to train where they took a quest to save Hera that is being kept prisoner. Read more about how they solved the mystery of Jason’s lost memory and his habit of calling the gods by their Roman names.

The Son of Neptune

Percy found his way to Camp Jupiter, a camp for Roman demigods, without remembering anything about his life except for the name Annabeth. At Camp Jupiter, he met Hazel Levesque, daughter of Pluto and Frank Zhang, son of Mars. He was also introduced to Reyna, praetor of Camp Jupiter and daughter of Bellona. Percy, Frank and Hazel went on a quest to free the god of Death, Thanatos as guided by the prophecy Mars has given them. Follow Percy and his friends as they discover Hazel’s secrets and her relationship with Nico Di Angelo, as well as Frank’s special gift and how Percy got his memory back.

The Mark of Athena

Annabeth, Leo, Jason and Piper accompanied by Coach Hedge went to Camp Jupiter through the Argo II, a flying warship made by Leo and his siblings. They arrived at Camp Jupiter, where Annabeth and Percy finally had the chance to be together again. They discussed the Prophecy of Seven and agreed that the Romans and Greeks must work together to close the Doors of Death. However, Leo who have been possessed by an Eidolon started sending explosives to the city using the Argo II. So Annabeth, Percy, Jason, Piper, Leo, Hazel and Frank had to escape from the city before the Romans could kill them. This book will also tell us about how Annabeth found the statue of her mother, the Athena Parthenos, that is being kept by their mortal enemy Arachne, because she believes that it could be the key in uniting the two camps and in fixing the gods’ split personalities.

The House of Hades

After falling into Tartarus, Percy and Annabeth went into the struggle of surviving and finding their way out through the Doors of Death. They literally went through hell. The rest of the seven, continued their quest in finding the other side of the Doors of Death which is located in the House of Hades. Find out how they will close the doors and fight every obstacle they will face throughout their journey.

The Blood of Olympus

This is the last book in the series where the seven demigods went to Athens to keep Gaea from waking before the Feast of Spes. Reyna, Nico and Coach Hedge, on the other hand, brought the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half Blood to keep the Roman Legionnaires from destroying the camp. Find out how these demigods will defeat the giants, even if they can only be killed by a god and a hero working together. How will they be able to do that when the gods are not in good condition. Will they be able to stop Gaea from destroying the world when she is a primordial deity that could not be killed?

That’s it to this list, but if you’re thinking that The Blood of Olympus ends it all, fear not. Because Uncle Rick just recently announced that he is writing a new series entitled The Trials of Apollo where we’ll meet Percy and his friends again! Yey! You’ll find more details about the series in this article written by one of my fellow bloggers. Check it out here.
