The Blood of Olympus is a young adult fantasy book that involves Greek and Roman Mythology.  It is the final book in the Heroes of Olympus Series.  This series is a spin-off of the Percy Jackson and the Olympian Series.

THE PERCY JACKSON AND OLYMPIAN SERIES:

This series follows the adventures of Percy Jackson and the help of his friends.  They are all demigods, sons or daughters of a Gods (Goddesses) and a mortal.  The Gods in this series are all Greek.

THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS SERIES:

This series follows the same set of characters as the first series, as well a new group from the Roman camp.  This series follows both Roman and Greek Gods (Goddesses) and how their personalities are similar and different.

THE KANE CHRONICLES:

This series follows Carter and Sadie Kane, siblings however nothing alike as they were raised in separate households.  This series involves the intervention of the Egyptian Gods (Goddesses).

MAGNUS CHASE AND THE GODS OF ASGARD:

I have not read this series yet, but I have heard really good things.  Magnus is Annabeth’s (friend of Percy Jackson) cousin.  This series involves Norse mythology.

THE TRIALS OF APOLLO:

I have not read this series yet either, however I am not that far behind as only the first book is out.  I believe this series is about the God Apollo and the struggles he went through during his immortal life.

 

My favorite series would have to be the Kane Chronicles, of the ones I have read so far.  These books are more middle grade, so they are a bit young for me.  However, if you just want to read for fun, with less big plot points and themes, these books are very entertaining.  I hope to read his last two series this year.  I’m sure the majority of you have read any combination of these books/series, but for those who have not I encourage you to do so.
