Top 10 Best Percy Jackson Books

The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan is the best series ever behind Harry Potter in my opinion. What are the best Percy Jackson books?
The Top Ten
1 The Last Olympian

This deserves #1 place. It talks about the prophecy, battles, and it developed Percabeth into what it is now. The Last Olympian talks a lot about Percy, Annabeth, and Luke's background. This is heartwarming story, narrated by a humorous character. It's so descriptive that you can feel what Percy's feeling; pain, love, determination, frustration, anger, confusion, everything. The book has an ending that makes you want to cry and smile at the same time. Cry because the beautiful series is over, but laugh in joy as you know the next series is out and Percabeth. The fight scenes seem like you're watching them as Percy journeys to defeat Kronos. One of my personal favorite parts is when Percy calls to Blackjack and lands safely on him, but his voice turns a higher of an octave and makes you want to laugh. This book ultimately makes you feel proud of the beloved characters and makes you want to cheer and breakdown laughing, crying, smiling, growling, spilling out all of the emotions The Last Olympian gives you.

2 The Titan's Curse

The Titan's Curse has some good morals and values weaved between the story line. This book has a lot to say about loyalty, friendship, family, trust, courage, sacrifice, and more. Some of the characters grow, not only in their demigod training, but also by learning from their mistakes and learning to do the right things. The book is filled with rather clean humor that is both funny and witty. The book shows how strong friendships are hard to break and good friends are hard to replace. But it also says that should always keep in mind to never blindly trust someone as people change over time. When we face different situations we should not wholly prejudice something because things may not always be as they seem. Life is a surprise; we never know what may happen. But whatever it may be we always have a choice and to choose right is in our hand. The Titan's curse has displayed gender equality. Most of the times we see that there are more male characters in a book rather than female but this not the case with 'The Titan's Curse.'

3 The Battle of the Labyrinth

This is a flawless book. The best thing about it is how dangerous it feels. Rick Riordan stretches the book and the time they spend in the battle, which only adds to the adventure and makes it seem more real and dangerous. The fight at the end is far better than the Last Olympian, with the excitement well and realistically done. The Last Olympian's one flaw is that the fight is dragged onto the whole book with nothing much else going on - Plus, for a FINAL battle, it doesn't have much excitement, either.

4 The Lightning Thief

The book is a great start to the series! Everything is so well well put together! The best part in my opinion was when they stumble into Medusa's Lair, I had the feels! This book was the one that made me want to read more and more! WAY better than the movie and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good book!

I've never been into the demigods and gods until I read the series and now I love them! Anyone looking for a good read, I'd check out this series! I would place this 2nd in my list behind The Last Olympian! Great book.

5 The Sea of Monsters

Sea of monsters continues the action packed adventures of percy jackson started in lighning thief. Entertaining and a worthy sequel.

Underrated. It's the only book where I feel Percabeth actually has chemistry, and it's short enough that you don't get bored too fast

Because this book remember Tacica - Newsong of the maritime theme, every time I read (3 billion times) I remember of this music.

6 Percy Jackson's Greek Gods

An extremely humorous and somewhat informational book. I enjoyed reading this book, and all of the exquisite features it has.

I loved this book! Percy is a FANTASTIC character and is pretty hilarious when talking about the Greek gods. Should be higher on this list.

It's an amazing story of the important myths of the gods, the twelve olympians, the titans, and even before them!

7 The House of Hades

Percy and Annabeth in Tartarus, that's all that needs to be said. An amazing journey, and amazing growth for Hazel and Leo in this book as well, start of Leo's love life, Hazel on confidence and the mist, etc.

A great book that focuses on some of the best characters in the entire Percy Jackson universe. Annabeth and Percy's chapters were so well written, I think this is the best book he ever wrote.

How is this 8th I mean Percy and Annabeth fall to Tartars of all places and the story has great development to the next book.

8 The Mark of Athena

The first book with the 7 in one place! Annabeth's arc is amazing, and the rest is fantastic too, the interactions between the 7, the ghosts, the twin giants, and very good Leo character development.

A thrilling novel focusing on Annabeth, and her amazing brain. It also adds Nico into the mix, so bonus points for that.

It's about the 7 coming together you get to meet new people, travel to Rome and a bunch of other cool things. Plus Annabeths point of view anyone

9 The Demigod Diaries
10 Demigods & Magicians

This book mixed Greek demigods and egyptian magicians together. How great!

When I read this, I was like, Percy has been through all of Rick Riordan's series!

I love this book

The Contenders
11 Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes

Just like Greek Gods, this book is also humorous, informational, and exquisite. I enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading it again.

A funny and humorous way to retell myths of Greek legends.

Plenty of humor and storytelling to make this 100% Riordan.

I loved it. An amazing spin off of each tale, he even made the long, boring story of Heracles interesting!

12 The Son of Neptune

A much stronger book than the lost Hero in my opinion, as the 3 main characters are much more interesting, and we have Percy, Leo is probably the best of the first 3 demigods, but Frank, Hazel, and Percy together make a much stronger and better book.

This was a much better book than The Lost Hero in my opinion.

13 The Hammer of Thor

I think this book is good don't get me wrong but its just not like percy jackson

14 The Blood of Olympus

Give me hate, i don't care, but THIS SHOULD BE #1! I think the last olympian was SO overrated and this book had so many better moments. And Leo came back from the dead. What's not to like?

WHAT!? How is Blood of Olympus Last?! I know people will hate me, but I liked HoO better. The finale was great to

15 The Tower of Nero
16 The Lost Hero

I loved HoO. Great start to the series.

17 The Sun and the Star

This is a great book, as you see Nico and Will's relationship in a lot more depth than before in a way where you sympathize with both of their desires for the other to improve, and it's great to see both of them work things out and try to improve when they could have just been stubborn and only seen their sides. The characters introduced, good evil or neither, are all interesting and contribute to the depth and sadder themes of the book, and this book has an excellent execution of a moral about new identity in a way that doesn't feel obnoxiously preachy. The only parts of the book that could be better are that Annabeth isn't serious/stern enough in her brief scene, Tartarus could be scarier, and the climax happens too quickly. Other than that the well-written, engaging characters, interesting worldbuilding, and extremely important for everyone moral really make TSATS easily worth reading.
