What’s the Blood of Olympus Audiobook?
The Blood of Olympus Audiobook is a 2014 fantasy adventure audiobook written by American author Rick Riordan, based on Greek and Roman mythology. It is the fifth and final audiobook in The Heroes of Olympus Audiobook series, preceded by The House of Hades Audiobook and followed by The Hidden Oracle Audiobook in The Trials of Apollo series.
The Blood of Olympus Audiobook Mp3 received mixed reviews. While some praised Riordan’s writing, as well as the inclusion of two additional POVs, some doubts were expressed over certain loose ends. According to Kirkus Reviews, “The satisfyingly cataclysmic showdowns yield to a peaceful resolution at last; here’s hoping it holds this time.”
In my opinion, Riordan has spectaculary managed to infiltrate tumblr and fanfiction sites to include several fandom references that my heart squealed with joy everyone I read something like ‘broke Leo’s feels.’ Congratualtions on a job well done there, Riordan. He has done the mythology very well in this one. Several new myths and monsters were introduced and the book is worth it’s mythological salt.
Why should you listen to the Blood of Olympus Audiobook?
The Blood of Olympus Audiobook free made me nostalgic. I remember reading the very first Percy Jackson audiobook when I was fifteen and just out of school, in the summer before college. I took to them like I had taken to Harry Potter Audiobook. I remember listening to Son of Neptune and being in agony because Mark of Athena didn’t come out until October and until December in India. I had finished seven audiobooks in less than two weeks. With camp. That’s how much I loved them.
It’s never easy saying goodbye to your favorite characters and knowing you’ll never read anything new about them. I know there are Demigod Diaries and Kane Chronicles / PJ crossover novellas but it’s not the same. There is a Stoll brothers scene during the fight where Connor goes “Yeah, can’t complain. Nice day for it.” referring to the war where I had gut wrenching Fred and George feels.
Goodbye Percy, Annabeth, Grover, Clarrise, Nico, Reyna, Will, Jason, Piper, Hazel, Frank Leo, Rachel, Connor and Travis and everyone else. It was a good one.
The plot of the Blood of Olympus Audiobook
Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen?all of them?and they?re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood – the blood of Olympus – in order to wake.
The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps.
The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea?s army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.
