Serena It's quite alright to read this series after the Heroes of Olympus, you'll know more about Percy Jackson and Annabeth's history and adventures.
Megan Gable Ok. No offense BUT WHY DID YOU READ THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS FIRST????!!!!!!! That is sooo a retarded person move!!!!!! People if you are wanting to read this series READ THIS ONE FIRST!!!!!! Ok people. Please don't read the heroes of olympus first because it will give away all the secrets to the Percy Jackson series!!!!!!!!
Addie I think it's okay it would have been better if you read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series first because the Heros of Olympus series tells you about what happens in the first series so it might be a little boring because you'll know a lot of the secrets. You really should have read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series first though. It's okay it just might be a little boring for you.
RubyRed4398 Nahhhh the first book I read of the PJ world was "Mark of Athena" (Someone gave it to me and at that time I didn't know any better) and then the whole Hoo series and then PJO it's perfectly fine since
HoO revolves around 7 characters which is why Percy and Annabeth aren't highlighted that much. You can still read PJO tho!
Samantha (Sam) OMGOODNESS WHY PERSON WHY!!!!!????????????
MADDIE G Yes, definitely I read the Percy Jackson series first and hero's of Olympus doesn't give too much away.
