How do you like the Heroes of Olympus series? Do you like all the new heroes? How do you feel about the new characters? What's you're opinion about the building excitement for Mark of Athena? What do you think is going to happen in Mark of Athena? How did you feel at the end of The Son of Neptune? Discuss this series here!!!!

I think I have both of the Heroes books lendable on my Nook if any of you haven't read it and want too!!! :D


message 3: by Katrina (new)

Katrina Welsh (katrinawelsh_) I don't really like the new heroes, to be honest. Also, I think that the series lacks the humour that PJ series did, mostly because the humour came from Percy's point of view and we don't really get to see it that much anymore. By the way, I don't like Frank. At. All.

Hehe I still loved them :) but I'm an easy sell! Percy's still the best but I like Hazel and Jason too :)

I really like the new heroes. I was a little put off when I heard Percy wasn't going to be in the first one, but my mind changed quickly after reading the first chapter!!! I think humor wise, Rick was playing around new territory with the new characters so he couldn't have Percy humor with them. It would have made the Percy humor a crutch for the book, and I don't think I would have enjoyed that at all. I love the drama envolved with the new characters!!! I think that may be one of the best things to me with this series. So many different characters that are tied together in some really weird ways with some mixed up complicated backgrounds made the story really intriguing.

Carly I love the Heroes of Olympus but I wish they could've picked up after all the main characters from the other books had died and not had it be a continuation but other than that I love them and Riordan keeps up his awesome writing.

I'm confused you wish it would have been picked up after the other book, but not been a continuation?

Carrissa Bellehumeur | 10 comments Valencia do you have The Son of Neptune on your Nook that you would be able to lend??


message 10: by Natalie (new)

Natalie Monroe (natmonroe4) | 3 comments I agree with Katrina, it's not as funny as the original Percy Jackson series. But I still read it to keep up with the old heroes.

Fitzfangirl | 5 comments Hi! -waves- can I jump in? :) Overall, I like Heroes of Olympus, and the way the chapters are structured is neat. But it's not the same as PJATO...everything happening in Percy's point of view was much more entertaining, but I'm excited to see the world through Annabeth's eyes in MoA! And no Percy in TLH just KILLED me! And the whole time his memory was lost was just terrible. And I was sad Percy and Annabeth didn't really get a "happily ever after" for very long. And now, all this drama about Percy facing a sacrifice he can't make, I'm so scared for him. :( (I'm very attached to Percy...;))

Oh yea MoA is going to be intense!!!!! I think it's great that there are different characters because there can be a whole lot more stories in that world.

message 19: by Gabrielle (new)

Gabrielle (gabshi) Percy is fun still but I like Hazel, too. She's cool. My brother hates her, but I like her;). Percy is more serious and less funny, but he's still good.

David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 304 comments Mod
I love Hazel too! I actually like most of the characters, Riordan is a genius!!!

ShAnnon Monahan (shannonmonahan) | 15 comments i'm kinda in between with hazel... she's kind of touch and go for me. also i love this series and i got the second book signed. i think that there is going to be an epic battle even bigger than in the last olympian.(p.s gleeson hedge is mentioned in that book) i cant wait till the third book comes out. nervous about percy and annabeth and i am really excited and anxious since i read the first teaser chapter. so yeah

Wow awesome post Brian, I loved it!! You are a true fan :)


message 25: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (mandamichele) I think Rick Riordan did a great job in Heroes of Olympus, especially trying to follow up Percy. I'm hoping to see lots more Annabeth in Mark of Athena!

Valencia (empowered) | 1777 comments Mod
I think Leo and Frank are my favorites. Leo's all crazy entergetic and Frank's the strong silent type with a big heart. I really like Rhena(sp) too. She's a really strong female character and I really respect her. She's like Camp Jupiter's Annabeth.

Ya'll I just realized how much drama is going to be in MoA!!!!

I KNOW RIGHT!!! Have any of you read the excerpt on the book's disney page?


message 28: by Karissa (new)

Karissa (bibliophilic98) Yes, I like Percy the best still, and I liked Jaosn, Leo, and Piper. I hope that in The Mark of Athena, It will be from Percy's,Annabeth's, and Grover's point of views


message 29: by Oscar (new)

Oscar Haven't read book one in a while, so I can't quite remember who's who, but I think it's Jason who's the mechanical one, and he's one of my fave characters. I would omlare myself to him, but I'm less of a genius.


message 30: by Valencia, Boss Lady (new)

Valencia (empowered) | 1777 comments Mod
No that's Leo. I don't think Grover will have a POV in the new book just the main characters from the first 2 books.

Yes it is!!!! It's been a long time coming.

Oh my gosh, that will be awesome!!


message 33: by Becca (new)

Becca (beccatheawesomeone) | 146 comments I think Riordan should have stuck with his old first person POV. I mean, what better way to connect with young readers then let them get inside the hero's head? And other than that Riordan was amaing at that POV. This Pov just seemed kind of.. I don't know... lacking in the Riordan trademark humor and charm.

The other heroes.. I think they should have more girls. I mean out of the whole two books there have only been two female heroes. I mean, in the Kane chronicles, he had both Sadie AND Zia. Annabeth and Thalia. It just seems like he prefers guys. (which would make sense as he is one and knows their way of thinking. Even Sadie was a bit too boy-ish. But thats a different series.

Overall its a great series by a great author.

Valencia (empowered) | 1777 comments Mod
We get another girl in the next book and MoA should have 3 female POVs.

I don't know how he's going to pull it off, what with 7 different people to write in POV. He's probably going to have to ditch the whole two chapters then switch thing.


message 38: by Valencia, Boss Lady (new)

Valencia (empowered) | 1777 comments Mod
Hmmmm I don't know how he will do it maybe just the POV of Camp Half-Blood people and then Camp Jupiter in the next book hmmmm......I think we can expect this book to be lengthy either way.

Who's excited for the new Heroes book?! I really am I haven't been this excited for a sequel in a while especially after the ending of MoA. I love how much their relationships have grown and I think there will be a boatload more of relationship surprises in the future books. ^_^
