The Blood of Olympus: Review and Download Link

Happy New Year…!!!

Just get back from a very long leaves, not a holiday, I got medical check up to conduct but nothing serious and got plenty of time to relax and enjoy the non-working day with my husband and our big family.

Actually, I’ve written this post last month after I finished reading The Blood of Olympus but since I just got access to computer to day, so here the post.

I can’t believe that I’ve finished reading The Blood of Olympus. I know it is not the end, there is one or more Crossover stories where we could meet again with Percy and Annabeth along with the Kanes, Carter and Sadie, but still, there is no more series to be waiting for.

I’ve read some comments or, to be specific, complains in GoodReads that there is no chapter for Percy and Annabeth at all. Well, I don’t mind about that because this book is about the other characters. They have their own chapters in The House of Hades, and I did complain there is no chapter for Nico there. But now we could learn about the other characters, that’s why I love about Rick Riordan, though Percy still the center of everything but the other characters are prominent too, especially Leo and Nico. I love those two guys, a lot. Besides, does it more hilarious to see Percy and Annabeth from different angle?

From Leo’s Point of View:

Percy was eating a huge stack of blue pancakes (what was his deal with blue food?) while Annabeth chided him for pouring on too much syrup.
‘You’re drowning them!’ she complained.
‘Hey, I’m a Poseidon kid,’ he said. ‘I can’t drown. And neither can my pancakes.’

Or more awesome?

From Nico’s Point of View:

The older Nico got, the more juvenile Percy seemed to him, though Percy was three years older. Nico found his sense of humour equal parts endearing and annoying. He decided to concentrate on the annoying.
Then there were the times Percy was deadly serious: looking up at Nico from that chasm in Rome –The other side, Nico! Lead them there. Promise me!
And Nico had promised. It didn’t seem to matter how much he resented Percy Jackson; Nico would do anything for him. He hated himself for that.

From Leo’s Point of View:

Leo skipped a stone across the river. He wished Hazel and Frank would get back. He felt awkward hanging out with Percy.
For one thing, he wasn’t sure what kind of small talk to make with a guy who’d recently come back from Tartarus. Catch that last episode of Doctor Who? Oh, right. You were trudging through the Pit of Eternal Damnation!
Percy had been intimidating enough before – summoning hurricanes, duelling pirates, killing giants in the Colosseum …
Now … well, after what happened in Tartarus, it seemed like Percy had graduated to a totally different level of butt-kickery.

From Piper’s Point of View:

If that was true for Jason, how could it not be true for Percy? The guy had literally been through hell and back. Even when he wasn’t trying, he made the toilets explode. What would Percy be like if he wanted to act scary?

And according to Leo (again), kind of sharing a stupid sense of humour with him.

From Leo’s Point of View:

‘Hey, Percy,’ he said, ‘remember that statue of Nike in the museum? The one that was all in pieces?’
‘Yeah?’
‘Didn’t it used to stand here, at the Temple of Zeus? Feel free to tell me I’m wrong. I’d love to be wrong.’
Percy’s hand went to his pocket. He slipped out his pen, Riptide. ‘You’re right. So if Nike was anywhere … this would be a good spot.’
Frank scanned their surroundings. ‘I don’t see anything.’
‘What if we promoted, like, Adidas shoes?’ Percy wondered. ‘Would that make Nike mad enough to show up?’
Leo smiled nervously. Maybe he and Percy did share something else – a stupid sense of humour. ‘Yeah, I bet that would totally be against her sponsorship deal. THOSE ARE NOT THE OFFICIAL SHOES OF THE OLYMPICS! YOU WILL DIE NOW!’
Hazel rolled her eyes. ‘You’re both impossible.’
Behind Leo, a thunderous voice shook the ruins: ‘YOU WILL DIE NOW!’
Leo almost jumped out of his tool belt. He turned … and mentally kicked himself. He just had to invoke Adidas, the goddess of off-brand shoes.
Towering over him in a golden chariot, with a spear aimed at his heart, was the goddess Nike.

Or how protective he became when it comes to Annabeth and somehow only Annabeth who could ‘handle’ Percy really well, since well you know he’s being awesome and stupid at the same time, something that you couldn’t really see if you only read it from Percy or Annabeth’s point of view:

From Piper’s Point of View:

WHEN SHE RECOUNTED her dream for Percy, the ship’s toilets exploded.
‘No way are you two going down there alone,’ Percy said.
Leo ran down the hall waving a wrench. ‘Man, did you have to destroy the plumbing?’
Percy ignored him. Water ran down the gangway. The hull rumbled as more pipes burst and sinks overflowed. Piper guessed that Percy hadn’t meant to cause so much damage, but his glowering expression made her want to leave the ship as soon as possible.
‘We’ll be all right,’ Annabeth told him. ‘Piper foresaw the two of us going down there, so that’s what needs to happen.’
Percy glared at Piper like it was all her fault. ‘And this Mimas dude? I’m guessing he’s a giant?’
‘Probably,’ she said. ‘Porphyrion called him our brother.’
‘And a bronze statue surrounded by fire,’ Percy said. ‘And those … other things you mentioned. Mackies?’
Makhai,’ Piper said. ‘I think the word means battles in Greek, but I don’t know how that applies, exactly.’
‘That’s my point!’ Percy said. ‘We don’t know what’s down there. I’m going with you.’
‘No.’ Annabeth put her hand on his arm. ‘If the giants want our blood, the last thing we need is a boy and a girl going down there together. Remember? They want one of each for their big sacrifice.’
‘Then I’ll get Jason,’ Percy said. ‘And the two of us –’
‘Seaweed Brain, are you implying that two boys can handle this better than two girls?’
‘No. I mean … no. But –’
Annabeth kissed him. ‘We’ll be back before you know it.’
Piper followed her upstairs before the whole lower deck could flood with toilet water.

Arrgghhhh… I’m going to love them all… and miss them so badly…
