The House of Hades, the 4th book of the Heroes of Olympus, stands out as the most engaging book in the series. Every chapter offers another engaging story of Annabeth and Percy’s journey through Tartarus or the Argo II’s journey to save them. With fun characters like Leo and Frank as well as dramatic characters like Annabeth or Nico, there is not a single forgettable character in the story. Riordan’s way of blending ancient mythology and modern life leads to an incredible read.

Annabeth has been commanded by her mother to follow the mark and avenge her. In the third installment of the series we see our favorite demigod heroes go on an epic journey to Rome to answer their questions about the prophecy and face unspeakable horrors.

The Sea of Monsters is a painful sequel to the lightning thief, it is again a bad adaptation of the book as it changes the plot of the story a lot and tries to fix the problems with the first movie. The whole movie feels rushed, and crammed with random details, even if I ignore the book, the movie is mediocre at best.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief movie is a very bad adaptation to the book, it is actually decent if we ignore the books but even then I find a lot of flaws that ruin the movie. The story of the whole film is decent but the main plot points are drastically changed from the books. It also does not take advantage of all the unexpected twists the books had, they just reveal these twists in a casual way and do not build them up at all.

The Serpent’s Shadow is the third and final entry in The Kane Chronicles and is written by Rick Riordan. In this final book, Apophis, the serpent of chaos, plans to throw the world into eternal darkness. Carter and Sadie Kane must stop him from doing so by relying on a dangerous ghost and ancient spells to save the world. I thought the first two books in this series were very good, but I have to say that this is the best one yet. All the characters in this book shine, from Carter and Sadie Kane to Ra.

The Throne of Fire is the second book in The Kane Chronicles and is written by Rick Riordan. In this book, Sadie and Carter Kane must rush quickly to prevent the deadly serpent Apophis from destroying the world. This is the sequel to The Red Pyramid, a book which I liked a lot because of how new it felt.
