Top Ten Rick Riordan Books

The Top Ten

1 The Last Olympian The Last Olympian Product Image

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

The epic conclusion. Flawless writing and had many readers satisfied with the end.

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.

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.

2 The Lightning Thief The Lightning Thief Product Image

The beginning of the Percy Jackson series: equally incredible

look, I don't like Percy Jackson. I think its boring and written horribly. But, This book Is great. It's the only one I like.

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

Read this book when I was 10. While not Percy's age at any time during either series, I know that he and I are so similar. This is the most inspirational book I have ever read, despite being a children's fantasy. It is my favorite book of all time.

3 The House of Hades The House of Hades Product Image

HoH shows a different side of our favourite characters. Instead of being oddly cheerful in a word where the end is near, this book is majorly set in... there. It shows us Percy's other side and mental health (in a way), which was never explored I feel, despite 5 books where he was the main character and the HoO where he was one of the main characters.
I would say the Blood of Olympus is my favourite, but Annabeth and Percy are my favourite characters and they're minor characters in it so...

It's just so adventurous and great how Annebeth and Percy get together and all work towards something so impossible!

The books are always lighthearted and fun reads, but this one is far more serious and more emotional. It's an awesome book that at least deserves top 3, and I still haven't gotten over Bob ;(

Percabeth surviving tartarus. Caleo. Nico coming out. This book is great.

4 The Battle of the Labyrinth The Battle of the Labyrinth Product Image

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

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.

It's pretty dark for Rick Riordan, which makes it better!

Best action ever check out!?!?!

5 The Mark of Athena The Mark of Athena Product Image

I love this book because it brings together all of the seven (and percabeth reunion).

This was just wow, it is definitely my number one book, the love story here was at its peak. God, I really miss Anabeth and Percy, in the new books (trials of Apollo) we rarely get to seem them.

The Mark of Athena is such a great read. Love is totally swirling in this story, and it is full of action and other awesome features! :)

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

6 The Titan's Curse The Titan's Curse Product Image

I like the fact that is shows that a goddess can be captured too, Artemis is my favourite Olympian!

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

I'm rlly annoyed bc my name is Bianca, and my sister's name is Zoe, and both these characters appear, and die in this book! IT"S SO ANNOYING!

"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

7 The Son of Neptune The Son of Neptune Product Image

I love this book so much. Percy is there, Nico is there (though not for long), Hazel and Frank! The story is really fun, the characters work well off of each other, and I finally get to see Percy again! Whenever I reread the Heroes of Olympus The Lost Hero always feels like a bit of a slog. I like the book, it's fun, but I'm always trying to kind of get through it and finish it so I can read this one!

Percy lost his memory. It's so cute that the only thing that he remembers is Annabeth. Did Hera do that by purpose?

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!

8 Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Product Image

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

To be honest, this is way too underrated, I loved the book! It gave me butterflies, it made me laugh and and I just love every second of the series, so sad it's only a trilogy, I think we all want to see more though

It is more funny and has better stories than the Percy Jackson series...only in my opinion (maybe I am wrong), but really, I love this book. I have read all the three books in this series, in which the all the books are good. The fight scenes are also described more dramatically and has better dialogues. Thank you...

This is the start of a great series. Rick Riordan is my favorite author. So far my favorite series is percy jackson but I am excited for this series.

9 The Lost Hero The Lost Hero Product Image

I liked it because it showed us Piper, Leo, Jason and Festus of course.

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

This the best of all books

10 The Red Pyramid The Red Pyramid Product Image

I really like the Kane Chronicles, and though the second one is probably my favourite, I love this one too

The first time I read this book, I didn't like it as much as I like the others. However, I liked it a lot more once I read it again.

I loved red pyramid It was so good, but so forgotton, it puts a unique twist on the gods of books as they are not demi gods but rather hosting the godsand are magicians, I think the gods suit them very much as carter a combat magicain and sadie a diviner

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"

The Contenders

11 The Sea of Monsters The Sea of Monsters Product Image

Good hook and gets right into the action

Just too much stuff going on.

A amasing book, super good!

Very fun

12 The Serpent's Shadow The Serpent's Shadow Product Image

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

This is my favorite book


i love it

13 Sword of Summer Sword of Summer Product Image

A great series in all because it brought new characters to the game.
It is just sad how it ended too quickly, if you ask me, it should've been more than just a trilogy.

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

14 The Ship of the Dead The Ship of the Dead Product Image

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.

Too bad it had to end here

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

15 The Throne of Fire The Throne of Fire Product Image

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

The Blood of Olympus was straight garbage

This book is just straight up great despite how a lots of people hate this series! READ IT!

This book was fantastic, the entire Kane Chronicles should be the top three

16 The Hidden Oracle The Hidden Oracle Product Image

Why isn't this in the top 5?! This is one of his best written books ever.

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.

Apollo as Lester Papodopolous! A combo never to be missed. Also, "I have a note from the doctor"
A quote from Nico di Angelo

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

17 The Tyrant's Tomb The Tyrant's Tomb Product Image

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.

Reyna rejecting apollo and being a total queen who don't need no man. (SPQR: super powerful queen reyna). And Artemis saving apollo's life. Frank overcoming his curse. Absolutely love it.

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

18 The Blood of Olympus The Blood of Olympus Product Image

I love it and hope we will see more Percy Jackson in later years

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.

How could be this book here? It's not even came out

Best in the heroes of Olympus series

19 The Burning Maze The Burning Maze Product Image

RIP Jason. And to the person who said that they hate Jason and Piper, you can go to tarterus covered in papercuts. stuff you.

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.

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

20 Trials of Apollo: Tower of Nero Trials of Apollo: Tower of Nero Product Image

Not out yet, but I can't wait. I'm really excited!

So excited!

21 Trials of Apollo Dark Prophecy Trials of Apollo Dark Prophecy Product Image

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.

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

This book is very interesting!

I really liked it

22 Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods

Percy narrating all the greek gods, both complementing, and insulting them. It's one of the books not to be missed

Percy's narration is hilarious. This should be higher

the best

So funny

23 Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes Product Image

Another Percy Jackson narration. A son of Posiedon named after a son of Zeus. Who knew?

Ridiculously hilarious

24 The Demigod Files The Demigod Files Product Image

I love how it has all the stores that you do not get!

25 Demigods and Magicians Demigods and Magicians Product Image

Really fun book. I love to see the different worlds intersect and these characters I love come together and interact. It's always fun. Frankly, I hope more demigod/magician stories come out, because they're awesome!

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