Kort biografi
Richard Russell Riordan Jr. (born June 5, 1964) is an American author. He is known for writing the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, about a twelve-year-old Percy Jackson who discovers he is a son of the Greek god Poseidon. Riordan's books have been translated into forty-two languages and sold more than thirty million copies in the US. 20th Century Fox has adapted the first two books of his Percy Jackson series as part of a series of films. His books have spawned related media, such as graphic novels and short story collections.

Riordan's first full-length novel was Big Red Tequila, which became the first book in the Tres Navarre series. His big breakthrough was The Lightning Thief (2005), the first novel in the five-volume Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, which placed a group of adolescents in a Greco-Roman mythological setting. Since then, Riordan has written The Kane Chronicles trilogy and The Heroes of Olympus series. The Kane Chronicles (2010-2012) focused on Egyptian mythology; The Heroes of Olympus was the sequel to the Percy Jackson series. Riordan also helped Scholastic Press develop The 39 Clues series and its spinoffs, and penned its first book, The Maze of Bones (2008). His most recent publications are three books in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series, based on Norse mythology. The first book of his The Trials of Apollo series, The Hidden Oracle, was released in May 2016.

1.I would recommend this book to lower elementary school to middle school.
2.This book goes through a narrative of Percy Jackson the son of Posiden. He didn't know who I=his dad was and why he had so many issues with dyslexia and paying attention in class. He later is in peril and has to go to a camp to help keep him safe. He arrives at camp not knowing what it is and who his dad is. He then goes on a big adventure to try and clear his name.
3.I will definitely recommend this book in the future to my students. I will also recommend the non-graphic novel version. I could maybe use this as a lesson on the differences between formats.… (mere)

This is a great book for middle and early high school students. i really enjoyed reading this book. This is a book about a young boy who finds out that his father is Poseidon the god of the sea. it goes through that idea of learning his identity and an adventure to return Zeus's lighting bolt that had been stolen.

I just didn’t love Blood of Olympus as much as the other books in this series or the original Percy books. By this point in the story universe, there are too many moving parts and minor characters to keep track of easily. There’s plenty of action and dialogue, but for me the character development halted. It’s not a bad book, not in the least, but it doesn’t measure up to the others.

The ending, however, is good.

This is the second in the Kane Chronicles series, which follow Sadie and Carter Kane, who descend from two lines of Egyptian pharaohs and are magicians. As in the first one, it is told as a transcription of a tape recording made by Carter and Sadie. Its exactly what I expected, having read the first in this series, and the Percy Jackson series. Smart banter between the teens, the appearances of several Egyptian gods, some embracing the modern world. Its a fun read with some good action points, and some snarky humor. Fans of the Percy Jackson series won't be disappointed in these turns with the Egyptian pantheon.… (mere)
