As a huge fan of fantasy, when I read young adult author Victoria Aveyard’s debut novel Red Queen, I had to know what happened next. In Aveyard’s novel Glass Sword, a young woman is accidentally thrown into a world of glittering jewels and magical powers in a futuristic take on the future of the United States.
I finally finished the fifth and final installment of Rick Riordan’s first Greek gods series, and I must say I’m so glad I hunkered down and dove in.
Riordan’s novel The Last Olympian, the fifth novel in his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, takes place four years after the first words in The Lightning Thief. Percy Jackson, a young man who happens to be the son of the Greek sea god Poseidon, goes through some serious changes personally, physically, emotionally and spiritually just to reach the point where he is capable of battling Kronos, the king of the Titans.
And we’re back.
In the fourth installment of American author Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, we see Percy and his friends battle through the Labyrinth from ancient Greek mythology to save Camp Half-Blood.
But, things take a dark twist when someone is not who they say they are.
I really enjoyed this novel, like I’ve enjoyed the rest of Riordan’s Percy Jackson series. It feels like Riordan has even enjoyed the adventure himself, always maintaining his writing style and integrity throughout each book. He, yet again, has managed to blend ancient and modern into one book and still make it relateable to his young demographic.
