Riordan is wrapping up the Greco-roman saga. Nico is in Camp Half-blood with Will happily, Jason is Dead, Piper is off to Oklahoma, piper and calypso are in Indianapolis starting their own shop. beware spoilers following ....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................








Reyna has joined the Hunters, Thalia obviously going with her. Frank and Hazel are praetors of the Legion and must rebuild now that the battle is won. it seems only seems fair that we would end where we began. granted Percy did have a scene in the first book, but that didn't really show his ending AND Annabeth wasn't there. and come on its Percebeth the original two. They will be the way he closes out his story mark my words. but I swear if he hurts either of them ............ he shall get one hell of an boot up his ass(less)

most anticipated release of 2020

I hope we see some Percabeth & Solangelo moments here. The gang is back on track.
I have some hypothesis, let's see...
OMG! SO AFRAID!
& anyway, I can’t be the only one wants to see a full 5-book series crossover between Percy

Whatever happens, I hope that Rick doesn't make another series. I'm a die-hard fan of Percy Jackson, Heros of Olympus and Trials of Apollo. But I don't want these series to keep going past this, because sometimes ending a series is better than keeping them going because nothing is left to the imagination. But mostly, I don't want to see Percy and Annabeth as 30 year olds with Children. For me it will just feel plain wrong. That was the major problem I had with Harry Potter and the cursed child, ...more

THERES GOING TO BE FIVE BOOKS?! Praise bless.
It's like Cassandra Clare-- I'll be out of college and they'll both be still writing books! I'm so lucky to live in a world where authors write books until they're six feet under.

[21/12/19] The fact that I started this series as straight and ended it as PEAK queer ...if that isn't a sign...

(6/24/16): It's strange to have to wait until 2020 for this series to finish, especially cause I'll *hopefully* be in my first year of medical school by the time this comes out and I'll still be reading this stuff. But I've kinda already sold my soul to Riordan and I'm reading this, no matter how long it takes. And besides, before I know it, it'll be 2020! Cause that's exactly what I was thinking when the HOO books were first published.

Trials #4 hasn't come out yet, but I'm assuming this fifth one will be all about Jason galavanting around with the crew because he is alive and well again.

Ugh, this wait is excruciating!!!

THIS IS IT. CROSS-FINGERS.


RIORDAN WAS A SUCCESSFUL WRITER AND STORYTELLER FOR THIS WHOLE UNIVERSE OF MYTHOLOGY. HE ALWAYS EXCEEDS OUR EXPECTATIONS. BUT LAST TIME I CHECKED ONLY THE THE LAST OLYMPIAN AND THE SERPENT'S SHADOW HAD THE BEST AND SATISFYING ENDINGS.

THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS WAS GOOD BUT THE SHIP OF THE DEAD WAS DISAPPOINTING.


I HOPE RIORDAN'S MAGICAL WISH FOR TOWER OF NERO TO BE EXCEEDINGLY GREAT WOULD BE GRANTED SINCE ALL COMMUNICATIONS WERE RESTORED (IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN).

I just hope he gives a good ending this time. All though I love this series, it was disappointing that Percy wasn't the real hero in the first or the second series. I just hope this one ends well.

While all good series must come to an end, I hope Rick has something else planned for the future. Maybe not in the Percy Jackson world, but possibly something new. As embarrassing as this may be to say, Rick’s books are a must have in for my spare time lol. I know he has Rick Riordan Presents for other authors, but there’s no book like Rick’s books. Can’t wait for next year!
