Die letzte Göttin // The Last Olympian!!!
Die letzte Göttin - Rick Riordan,Gabriele Haefs

german and english review

spoilerfree

 

Inhalt: Jetzt sind Percy und seine Freunde gefragt: Ihr Todfeind Kronos holt zum letzten Schlag aus und marschiert auf den Olymp zu, mitten ins Herz von New York - dabei sind doch die olympischen Götter alle ausgezogen, um gegen das wiedererstandene Monster Typhon zu kämpfen! Gemeinsam mit den Jägerinnen der Artemis und den zum Leben erweckten Denkmälern der Stadt versuchen die jungen Halbblute, den Sitz der Götter zu verteidigen, aber zu allem Unglück haben sie auch noch einen Spion in den eigenen Reihen. Gut, dass wenigstens eine Göttin im Olymp zurückgeblieben ist ...

 

Meine Bewertung: Einfach ein gelungener Abschluss!!!

 

Ich bin so froh, dass ich die Reihe nochmal gelesen habe bevor ich die "Helden des Olymp" anfange, denn ich hatte schon wieder so viel aus dieser Reihe hier vergessen, gerade was den letzten Band anging.

 

Das Buch war voller Action, hatte aber auch wundervolle ruhigere Charakter Momente. Ich liebe die Entwicklung von den ganzen Charakteren. Ich liebe die Freundschaften. ICH LIEBE ALLES AN DIESER SERIE.

 

Der Abschluss der Serie war einfach richtig gut gemacht und macht eindeutig richtig viel Lust mit "Helden des Olymp" erneut in die Welt einzutauchen.

 

***

 

Summary: All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows.

While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

 

My review: Such a great way to end the series!!!

 

I'm just so glad that I decided to reread the whole series before moving on to "The Heroes of Olympus", cause I forgot so much about the series and especially the last book.

 

The book was full of action but still had wonderful quite moments of the characters. I just love how all the characters grew. I love the friendships. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SERIES.

 

It was a really good way to end the series and make me even more excited to start "The Heroes of Olympus" and dive back into the world.

 

Der Abschluss der Serie war einfach richtig gut gemacht und macht eindeutig richtig viel Lust mit "Helden des Olymp" erneut in die Welt einzutauchen.

Review: The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3)by Rick Riordan
The Titan's Curse - Rick Riordan

Syno

 

It's not everyday you find yourself in combat with a half-lion, half-human.

But when you're the son of a Greek god, it happens. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster.

Oh, and guess what? The Oracle has predicted that not all of us will survive...

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

 

It has been a while since I read book two, but it was super easy to get back into the world of Percy Jackson and his friends. Thanks to the great writing and in-story recap I never had the feeling that I have forgotten much, despite the long tome between the books.

Annabeth pretty disappeared during one of their adventures. Of course they have to go save her but that is never just that easy and many things fall into the way and trying not only to stop them but kill them.

Of course I still like Percy , I think I like him so much because he is just so “normal’ everyday struggles and just plain down to earth. But of course that often gets him in trouble, but makes it entertaining to say the least.  We meet some new Demi gods and their story, sooo far and we also meet Athena, goddess of hunt which is actually a bigger part of the story. She come with the hunt and we get to meet some hunters.

Zoey was a bit annoying in the beginning which I think that was by design, but I ended up really loving her.  We also meet Apollo, who is always has been my favorite when it comes to Greek mythology, that being said I really enjoyed his parts.

While the books are aimed at middle grade readers, I think that theses book are just amazing for all ages and will be enjoyed by much older audience as well.

Of course the ending ended on a cliffhanger and made me grave the next book right away, I’m looking forward very much to continue and finish this series.

5 ★ for me

The Sea of Monsters
The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2) - Rick Riordan

OMG so awesome! I do think there was a noticeable drag to parts of this book, but thought that Rick Riordan has done such a great job of moving Greek gods and goddesses we know into a modern setting with the threat of the Titans re-emerging to cause havoc.

I love Percy. He wants to fit in at school (as much as he can) but he loves Camp Half-Blood and his friends through thick and thin. I think that Riordan did a great job developing him in this one. And I loved the secondary characters too like Annabeth and Tyson. I also though that Riordan was clever with including cyclops into this one along with some guest appearances by some gods and also by a well known king who got rightly cursed by the gods.

 

I can't help it though, my only irritation was the book ending on a cliffhanger. I loathe that when reading. I think each story should stand alone and be done. It seems to always be something that YA authors do I think in order to keep the readers reading.

Die Schlacht um das Labyrinth // The Battle of the Labyrinth
Percy Jackson, Band 4: Percy Jackson - Die Schlacht um das Labyrinth - Rick Riordan

german and english review (spoilerfree)

 

Inhalt: Die Armee des Kronos wird immer stärker! Nun ist auch Camp Half-Blood nicht mehr vor ihr sicher, denn das magische Labyrinth des Dädalus hat einen geheimen Ausgang mitten im Camp. Nicht auszudenken, was passiert, wenn der Titan und seine Verbündeten den Weg dorthin finden! Percy und seine Freunde müssen das unbedingt verhindern. Unerschrocken treten sie eine Reise ins Unbekannte an, hinunter in das unterirdische Labyrinth, das ständig seine Form verändert. Und hinter jeder Biegung lauern neue Gefahren ...

 

Meine Bewertung: Einfach wieder schön!!!

 

Dieser Band hatte wieder genau das was ich so an den Büchern liebe, viele Interaktionen mit Göttern, ob sie positiv sind oder nicht, und großartige, gefährliche Abenteuer.

 

Tyson war wieder im Band, ich kann von ihm ja nicht genug kriegen. Es war wirklich auch super Nico's Entwicklung durch die Geschichte zu verfolgen. Er ist einfach trotz allem ein Charakter der mir total ans Herz gewaschen ist, auch wenn er es einem manchmal wirklich schwer macht. Und Rachel natürlich, ich fand es super wie sie in dem Band eine große Hilfe war.

 

Alles in allem mochte ich den Teil wirklich sehr, er hat nur nicht immer meine Aufmerksamkeit gehalten und ich habe immer eher zu anderen Büchern gegriffen. Ooops. Außerdem mochte ich die Spannungen zwischen Annabeth und Rachel einfach nicht. Mädels!!!! (Oder besser gesagt Annabeth.)

 

***

 

Summary: Percy Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears at his potential new school, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to worse.

In this fourth installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos's army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth - a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.

 

My review: Just wonderful!!!

 

This book was once again filled with everything that I love so much about this whole series, lots of interactions with gods, positive and not so great ones, and great, dangerous adventures.

 

Tyson was in this book and I can't get enough of him. It was also great to see Nico's growth trhoughout the story. He ist just a character that is really close to my heart, still, even though he doesn't always make it easy. And Rachel of course, I just love what a huge help she was in the book.

 

All in all, I truly enjoyed this book a lot, it just didn't hold my attention enough, I kept reaching for other books instead. Ooops. I also didn't like the tension between Annabeth and Rachel. GIRLS!!!! (Or well, just Annabeth.)

Der Fluch des Titanen // The Titan's Curse
Der Fluch des Titanen (Percy Jackson, #03) - Rick Riordan,Gabriele Haefs

german and english review (spoilerfree)

 

Inhalt: Die Götter des Olymp befürchten das Schlimmste, denn die Titanen rüsten zum Krieg! Percy und seine Freunde müssen bis zur Wintersonnenwende die Göttin Artemis befreien, die in die Klauen der finsteren Mächte geraten ist. Dabei müssen sie gegen die gefährlichsten Monster der griechischen Mythologie antreten - und geraten selbst in tödliche Gefahr. Aber mit Percy haben die Titanen nicht gerechnet. Dabei weiß doch inzwischen jeder, dass er mit allen Wassern gewaschen ist - schließlich ist er der Sohn des Poseidon!

 

Meine Bewertung: Fast perfekt!!!

 

Mehr Annabeth und das Buch hätte von mir volle 5 Sterne bekommen, doch sie hat mir einfach zu sehr gefehlt.

 

Aber gleichzeitig fand ich es auch großartig wie sehr der Fokus auf Thalia lag. Und dann natürlich die neuen Gesichter, Zoe, Bianca, Nico, Rachel (ich hatte sie total vergessen und dann der Moment bevor sie aufgetaucht ist, ist sie mir wieder eingefallen und ich hab mich so gefreut sie wieder zu treffen), natürlich aber auch Annabeth's Vater und Stiefmutter.

Und vor allem auch Artemis und Apollo. Ich mag es einfach immer mindestest ein oder zwei Götter zu treffen.

 

Ich fand das Abenteuer wieder unheimlich gut und vor allem auch recht zügig geschrieben. So viele Seiten hat das Buch ja auch wirklich nicht, trotzdem hat sich nichts gehetzt angefühlt.

 

Ich bin einfach froh, dass ich die Serie noch einmal lese und wieder in die Welt eintauchen kann.

My review: Nearly perfect!!!

 

More Annabeth and this book would have gotten 5 stars but I just missed her too much through all of this.

 

At the same time I loved the fact that this book was focused on Thalia. And I loved all the new wonderful faces, Zoe, Bianca, Nico, Rachel (I totally forgot about her until the very moment shortly before she showed up and then I was just excited to see her again), I also really loved meeting Annabeth's father and stepmom.
Aaaand of course, Artemis and Apollo. I just love that we meet at least one or two gods in these books.

 

I also really loved the adventure they were on and how fast paced it was written. The book isn't really that long but it still didn't feel rushed or anything.

 

I'm just happy that I'm rereading this series and that I can dive back into this wonderful world.
