Top Ten Rick Riordan Books

The Top Ten

1 The Last Olympian

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

I love the plot of defending their home turf against Kronos and his whole army. My favorite part was when Percy took on his first monster, showing a little symbolism of how far he's come.

This book was amazing over a half of the entire book was a giant war badass book!

2 The Mark of Athena

This should be number one. It has tons of action and is a great story. Easily my favourite.

The 7 heroes met each other in this book. This was where the heroes gathered up. Sometimes they would have fights with each other but would then resolve them. It was fun to see how the Romans and Greeks would team up.

For me, this book goes neck to neck with HoH. I really can't decide which one of the two is the best book in HOO.

Awwwessooommmeee it was so action packed and it was awesome

3 The House of Hades

This is easily the best book with the most conflict and memorable scenes like Nico coming out, Bobs sacrifice and percy getting inflicted with curses. Just amazing!

I loved the cliffhanger and Bob sacrificing himself is easily the most memorable thing in the Rick Riordan books.

Has the most conflict! Very breath taking.

It's so good... I just love it... it's great... 10/10

4 The Lightning Thief

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.

This book started it all! If I never read this book then I wouldn't have been reading Rick Riordan's books! The best start to the greatest series ever. Not the best Rick Riordan book but a really good one.

I won't read the other books if I didn't start here. It was great, It took my heart and made me follow and finish the whole series.

I read it at 7 ant couldn't stop reading it

5 The Battle of the Labyrinth

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

Best action ever check out!?!?!

Close one between this and The Titan's Curse. Think both are better than the Last Olympian. I often times don't read the last book.

This and Last Olympian are amazing!

6 The Titan's Curse

You get to meet the bad ass Thalia. It's so full of adventure. One of Riordan's best books in the Olympians series. I love the part where they are the Dam and they make jokes and how Percy meets Rachel.

The titans curse is awesome full of amazing character like Nico di Angelo, the Hunters of Artemis, and Thalia daughter of Zeus. Honestly the battle of the Labyrinth is my favorite Percy Jackson book but this is a second contender.

New characters! Including Nico di Angelo

I have never cried as hard during a book character's death as I did during this book. Yet somehow it's still my favorite...

"I can see the stars again, m'lady."

7 The Son of Neptune

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!

8 Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard

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.

Really good book it's funny and it has everything. Please put this as first best.

The sword of summer is this book.

It took some time to warm up to this new norse gods series but I realized that it was epic. Can't stop reading. Its not the best Rick Riordan book but it's a very great book maybe one of the top 8 in my opinion.

THE COOLEST GREATEWST AWAESOMEST NO!

The Contenders

11 The Red Pyramid

Extremely unique and well written, wish the series went on longer cause it was perfection

Awesome, the best start to a series. I have to reread because I don't remember a lot.

I just finished it, and it's the best book I've ever read!

This series may not be better as popular or better but was written well, fast paced, and it kept me hooked right till the end of the book. This was probably the one of first Rick Riordan books I'e ever read.It was so awesome and memorable. Can't wait to read it again this Summer as soon as I finish Magnus Chase.

12 The Hidden Oracle

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

The trials of Apollo is and amazing book about an awesome adventure about a god who has been turning into a human and how he deals with the mortal world. There are a ton of characters coming back such as Percy Jackson and Nico di Angelo Plus a few more I wont spoil. I heavily recommend this amazing book and give it a 10/10

Dude why is this so low

So so awesome

13 Sword of Summer

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

This was really funny.

14 The Serpent's Shadow

This is my favorite book

I’m only voting for this one because I couldn’t find the Crown of Ptolemy.

15 The Throne of Fire

The Blood of Olympus was straight garbage

Very awesome book with tons of action!

16 The Ship of the Dead

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

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

17 The Blood of Olympus

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

This book sucked horribly. Huge PJO fan, but rick really dropped the ball with this one...

18 Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book 2 The Hammer of Thor
19 The Trials of Apollo
20 Magnus Chase
21 The Demigod Files
22 Trials of Apollo Dark Prophecy

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.

Ts great just came out though

23 Demigods and Magicians

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