Top Ten Rick Riordan Books


The Top Ten

1 The Last Olympian

This book is one of the best I've ever read from from Rick and may I say that it was stellar. Anyone in their right mind should read this because it is so good. I am an aspiring author myself, though I'm only 12, these books are the reason I wasnt to be an author. Rick Riordan has had a huge impact on my life and every time I'm feeling down, I'll pick up one his books. I even have a shrine filled with all of his books in my room. Rick Riordan is my biggest role model and I bet he' a real nice guy as well as an award winning author. Every last mythology book he's written has been a NewYork Times best seller and that is a huge accomplishment. I hope to be just like Rick Riordan when I emerge from my shell as an adolescent, then gloriously rise to adulthood.

It's so incredibly hard to choose a favorite from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series for me; they're just all so good! It's my favorite series (it's genius, really), and personally, my favorite book changes all the time, depending on which one in the series I've read most recently. However, since I recently finished this one again, I'm going to have to go with The Last Olympian, especially because, if I can remember correctly, it's the author's favorite one too. This book is so awesome because it takes all of the plotlines that were developing throughout the rest of the series, and it all ties up in this one book. It's the battle the whole series was preparing for, and everything led up to this. Plus, I love the themes in this one, especially the one about how sometimes the hardest skill to master is learning how to yield. It's just an awesome book; it has action-packed battle scenes, great dialogue, spectacular plot threads, and the way it all wraps up in the last few ...more

This book is by far the best book I have read. It is just simply brilliant. I know there are more amazing books out there but this, this is special.

Final battles are always Lit

2 The Lightning Thief

Okay, definitely not the best he has made.


This is the best book written by riordan yet. Man it's so good
the starting when percy kills the minotaur is just awesome

I can't choose but if I had to I would choose this

3 The Mark of Athena

Best book ever- a deeper exploration of annabeth and what makes her tick


Definitely the best book

hot stuff

4 The House of Hades

I just love the angst in this book. The character feels the most human in this book in the whole of the series!

I really like this book because of the passion between Annabeth and Percy. Its almost like being back in the old days of the PJO books. It gives us a time without Percy and Jason shooting daggers at each other. Also, what is up with Jason! He's like Rick Riordon took Percy and stripped him of all good things. Jason is way to shallow. He is too perfect and has no personality.

5 The Battle of the Labyrinth

The Best Book by far by Rick Riordan. Dadaelus was just perfect! People hate on Rachael but she's really good to me!

I just love Daedalus! - EllenseaFornost

It is my faveret book in the seres.

Despite The Last Olympian being the perfect ending for a series, this one impressed me more. A last book may be the most entertaining for others, but for me second-to-last books in a series have the power to prepare the reader for the grand finale, having more emotional stuff (for me) and having lots and lots of cool action scenes.

6 The Titan's Curse

Nope. Just nope.

I love this book, it is definitely the best Percy Jackson book

"Let us find the dam snack bar". Lol it so funny because Grover, Thalia and percy are all cracking up and Zoe's just like "What is funny". I'm reading Mark of Athena just now and Piper is talking about the monsters coming back through the doors of death and she says " like they're leaking through a hole in a dam" or something like that and percy says "We've got a dam hole" If I'm honest Last olympian and Mark of Athena are better than Titan's curse but this book introduces some amazing characters like thalia,zoe, nico,bianca and it deserves to be higher than 6

This one had the best plot, characters, writing, and best of all, Annabeth was gone the entire book!

7 The Son of Neptune

I love it but the only reason I hated it is because the cliffhanger at the ending

This was the best book that I have ever read, I love to read fantasy books. I love it! I love it! I love it!

It introduces so much to the story and keeps the percy jackson stories alive!

The maturity and higher stakes of the Heroes of Olympus seamlessly blended with the image charm of Percy Jackson. How couldn’t I adore it?

8 Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

So diverse

Best book ever

This is my favorite book EVER! I love Magnus, and the narritive is so hilarious! Why is this so far down the list?

Hillarious! I love this book

9 The Lost Hero

Personally looking at this list I was a bit surprised that the lost hero was voted at no. 10 for most of these because I really enjoyed this book. Jason was cool and all but we all know Percy is better, however I don't think it's fair that some people hate Jason just for that reason. In short, I really enjoyed the start to Heros Of Olympus and the feeling followed all the way through to the end. Great author, great series, great books. More should read.

Amazing! I love the plot and the mystery


It was cool

10 The Red Pyramid

I guess it was okay?

I love the Kane chronicles
I love Sadie and Carter
Best Moment in the red pyramid: "Somebody get a can-opener. I got a god stuck in my head"

It's the best book I've ever read!

Sadie is the best I like her kite form -Moondrop

The Contenders

11 The Sea of Monsters

Just too much stuff going on.


Good hook and gets right into the action

A amasing book, super good!

12 The Serpent's Shadow

i love it

Insanely good, kept a good pace throughout the book to the very end


This is my favorite book

13 The Hidden Oracle

This is so awesome and I love the crazy plot twist near the end!

best - CalebPro

YES. - CloudyDaze

It feels like a fresher start, the humor is great, Apollo is a strong and interesting main character, the single point of view is back and the villain has a lot of potential. - Snowflakes

14 The Throne of Fire

I don't really know.

I started speaking kinda British after reading this...
My mom thought I was sick - CloudyDaze

People think of this series as rubbish but its excelent

The Blood of Olympus was straight garbage

15 Sword of Summer

I found the Sword of Summer more appealing to me than The Lightning Thief, as a start to a series. Magnus is my second favorite Rick Riordan character, the first being Alex, the third being Percy. I loved the book so much! 10/10

It had lots of jokes and made you want to learn more.

It has everything a person would want in a book in my opinion

By far the best book I have ever read

16 The Blood of Olympus

The best

This is the best book I've ever known, with a lot of twist and turns, the plot is so awesome. I'm do sad when I know that this is the last book from the heroes of olympus series.

The BEST book EVER!

Hate this book. jason and piper are super boring and dumb, it's so much more interesting when we have percy and annabeths perspective. - CalebPro

17 The Ship of the Dead

Too bad it had to end here

My favorite book of the Magnus Chase series, I really like the relationship building up between Magnus and Alex

The plot is straightforward, the twists and turns are nice. Especially the Magnus and Alex twist.

A nice addition to MC.! Percy has a sister...

18 The Burning Maze

Because jason is my favourite character in the book

Had an amazing plot with awesome characters and a villain terrible enough to kill one of the book's main characters. So sad...

Good book, it's the best cause Jason dies. He was always my least favorite character... and the weakest. - CalebPro

Such an awesome book but it is so sad. I can't wait for the Tyrant's Tomb!

19 The Tyrant's Tomb

Tyrants Tomb should be number 1! Rick explains it so good I can imagine it around me!

Brilliant book with an amazing new character and some sad deaths... if you have not read it, you should do so ASAP.

Amazing apollo starts to jive

Just read it quick guys it's the best book (yet).

20 Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book 2 The Hammer of Thor

Diverse cast of characters

21 Trials of Apollo Dark Prophecy

I'm in the middle of it now, so far, I'm LOVING IT!

Honestly Riordon keeps getting better. I was originally going to vote for House Of Hades, Last Olympian or Ship Of The Dead but this is the best. The humour and action are excellent and Riordan's use of them keeps improving. The characters are great particularly Lit and Apollo both of whom undergo serious character development. This book also gave is Riordan's best villain since Luke Castellan. Menacing, sympathetic, charismatic and focused entirely on destruction Commodus is one hell of a villain. I enjoyed Nero but Commodus is far better. So far I'm really enjoying Riordan's villian emperor team up and the final emperor of the trio is getting a lot of hype which I hope he lives up to. Riordan is my all time favourite Author.

This book is very interesting!

I really liked it

22 The Trials of Apollo

The first part was the best when Meg had thrown trash at those guys and it exploded. Ha Ha I love all of the books, it's very hard to choose which one is my favorite.

23 Demigods and Magicians

Great story about Percy and Annabeth meeting the Kane siblings, Carter and Sadie. A powerful story by Rick!

24 Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods

So funny

Dear very bottom comment, u spelles awesome wrong.- Denise

25 Magnus Chase

Great book

26 Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes

Ridiculously hilarious

27 The Demigod Files
28 The Crown of Ptolemy

In all honesty, this was hilarious but also just the right amount of seriousness. The action in this was awesome to read about and the plot was perfect! Percy alway cracks me up and his opinions on Sadie and Carter and everything in general were great! This was one of my favorite books


29 The Dark Prophecy

I think that this book is really a good book for both children and adults

30 The Maze of Bones

It’s pretty good

loved it


31 The Son of Sobek
32 Camp Half-Blood Confidential

It is a hilarious book it has a lot of plot twists and action. I also really like that they are short mini story’s that incredibly good and helps you understand some parts of other books like the battle of the labyrinth and the house of hades.
