Richard Russell Riordan Jr. (born June 5, 1964) is an American author. He is known for writing the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, about a twelve-year-old Percy Jackson who discovers he is a son of the Greek god Poseidon. Riordan's books have been translated into forty-two languages and sold more than thirty million copies in the US. 20th Century Fox has adapted the first two books of his Percy Jackson series as part of a series of films. His books have spawned related media, such as graphic novels and short story collections.

Riordan's first full-length novel was Big Red Tequila, which became the first book in the Tres Navarre series. His big breakthrough was The Lightning Thief (2005), the first novel in the five-volume Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, which placed a group of adolescents in a Greco-Roman mythological setting. Since then, Riordan has written The Kane Chronicles trilogy and The Heroes of Olympus series. The Kane Chronicles (2010-2012) focused on Egyptian mythology; The Heroes of Olympus was the sequel to the Percy Jackson series. Riordan also helped Scholastic Press develop The 39 Clues series and its spinoffs, and penned its first book, The Maze of Bones (2008). His most recent publications are three books in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series, based on Norse mythology. The first book of his The Trials of Apollo series, The Hidden Oracle, was released in May 2016.

Yes – this was actually my first time reading anything that had to do with the Percy Jackson universe... I'm a little bit slow to this bandwagon.

Ok, in a lot of ways, it wasn't the most original thing I've read, and in other ways it's clearly geared towards younger kids. But what I did really like about it was that it was a lot of fun to read! I've definitely been in a reading slump, and I think this book was exactly what I needed to get me out of it. It was fun, action-packed, and I loved the inclusion of mythology.

I'll do a full review soon!

"The Chalice of the Gods" is a return to the magic of the original Percy Jackson series. It is a fun adventure, but what really made me enjoy it was the quiet moments in-between the chaos. In high-action stories, it's very rare for a character to just enjoy normal moments with friends and family. This quest is low stakes in comparison to the original series, and it's very refreshing.

Another apocalypse avoided and. . .now on to the new prophecy.

This was an interesting addition to the series. Battles were good, strategy and Apollo being his selfish and unselfish self.

This series is turning into an emotional roller coaster, a few beloved characters lost, and there is no time for grieving if the fate of the world hangs on one's shoulders.

It has its funny moments and heart wrenching. I still love Meg to bits and hope she would conquer her fear in the next book.

Apollo would surely learn his lessons, but does he ever?

I enjoy the intertwining of the myths, and this time, a little of Egypt. So well brought together.

This series is such a joy to read.

This series had me howling with laughter. Apollo was and his how I imagined how the god would be if he got stuck in the realm of mortals even how he behaved when he was a god. This series gripped me and I cannot wait for everything that will unfold.
