Picking up right where House of Hades left off, The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan spans the last few days leading up to Gaea’s planned awakening and a few days after. The demigods work to unite the Greek and Roman sides of the gods. Meanwhile, the Romans are planning an attack on the Greeks at Camp Half Blood.
The Blood of Olympus was good, at least for the last third. The first two-thirds was rather repetitive and a little boring. The demigods don’t seem to have changed at all and Percy, in particular, still seems 12. I kind of felt like Riordan ran out of steam about two books ago, but still felt the need to write 500+ page books to finish out the series.
