Dear Mr. Rick Riordan,
Words fail me.
That is largely due to the fact that, since I began reading Blood of Olympus—which happened mostly during my supposed bed time—I have been losing so much sleep. Friends couldn’t help but remark on how big my eye bags are. For the record, despite the failure of words, I regret nothing about the experience, which ended just a few hours ago.
Reading Blood of Olympus was a reward in and of itself. I am certain I’m not the first to finish it. And I know I am not the last. But I could not help but hurry to the next chapter. The world in the pages compels me each time I found myself immersed in them.
Undoubtedly, many fans like me would be glad that Percy and Annabeth, Jason and Piper, and Hazel and Frank made it through and are still together as couples. But my relief doesn’t lie with them or the camps or the gods. I am glad that Nico has changed for the better, with emphasis on the work of Will and Reyna. Couldn’t help but give a sigh of woe for the latter though; I really hope that she finds her happiness. She’s just as deserving as the others.
And when I read on how you delivered Calypso from her detention island—all thanks to Leo and Festus—I could not help but be reminded of that scene from Disney’s “Aladdin”, the first time Aladdin and Jasmine rode Carpet around the world. That is how I imagined Leo, Calypso, and Festus would be like. And a song wouldn’t be bad either! Good work on making the ending magical. And for choosing to end with my chosen OTP!
“The Heroes of Olympus” was a great series. Thank you for sharing that world with us.
Is Magnus Chase related to Annabeth? Are theirs the connection for both series? I’m excited to see if you’d answer my questions in the next series.
