Heroes of Olympus is a five-book series written by Rick Riordan.

Unlike Rick Riordan's previous series, which was told from the first person POV of Percy, this one is told from multiple third person POVs.




This article or section needs expansion.

  • Low opinion on new books (plot holes, ghostwriting accusations)
  • Some prefer new books - see it as introducing diversity + maturing the characters from the initial books
  • AO3/Tumblr-base, PJO fandom was FF.net/LJ-based? (even traditionally LJ-based stuff is on tumblr, like the Big Bang)
    • FF.net still seems to have a good chunk of stuff, but mostly het/gen, stuff involving PJO characters
    • LJ/DW community are not very crowded (have they ever been?)
  • PJO was more of a threshold fandom, tropes were fandom-specific, HoO has a balance of people active in others and newbies, more tropes, non-fandom specific (eg: Coffee Shop AUs)
  • Shared fans of other book series, such as Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments
  • More slash because of the Nico reveal
  • Negative reactions to new characters vs old characters experience decline in popularity (e.g: Grover, Luke)



Most works for Heroes of Olympus are hosted on tumblr and ao3
