  1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Last Olympian

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Last Olympian

The Last Olympian features excellent characterization and a tightly knit plot. Through this audiobook, Riordan presents to you excellent fantasy storytelling. You won’t find a moment in this story that won’t keep you at the edge of your seat. Jesse Bernstein, as usual, narrates the story with his charisma, making sure you enjoy the story to the fullest. 

New York City is under attack by the Kronos and the scary monster Typhon also heads their way into the city. There are only forty demi-gods that are standing in the way of madness and evil. Now, the weight of the entire world lies on the shoulders of Percy. In this final audiobook of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, everything comes to an end with a bang.

Best about this audiobook

About two-thirds of this audiobook was all the battles that the entire series has been building to. It was very smart because it made it feel so big and important. In this final installment, there were no last-minute gotchas, no subverting the fighting and attrition the war needed. 

In the final installment, The Last Olympian, Riordan outdid himself. This is clearly the best audiobook in the series, and an incredibly satisfying conclusion to everything preceding it. 

  1. The Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune

The Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune

The Son of Neptune is the second audiobook in The Heroes of Olympus series. The story is about another drama that is staged by Riordan between the gods and the mortals. 

Percy Jackson wakes from a deep sleep and encounters two ladies with snakes as their hair strands. In this mad world where there are gods and monsters, Percy has lost his past memory, except for Annabeth. Ow, he has to tramp up with Frank and Hazel to find Prophecy of the Seven. If he fails, not only his camp, but the entire world would be at a risk.

Best about this audiobook

The Son of Neptune was a thrilling, exciting, crazy, and absolutely bizarre adventure audiobook, and I loved every second of it.

In this audiobook, there is an opportunity to listen to several mindsets that eventually add so much depth to the story. I very much appreciate Riordan’s writing ability as he knew that if such a massive audiobook had only one perspective, it would not be able to captivate the interest of the listeners. 

  1. The Heroes of Olympus: The Mark of Athena

The The Heroes of Olympus: The Mark of Athena

Joshua Swanson has emphatically and deeply narrated this audiobook so that you can just get lost in the charming storytelling of Riordan. The Mark of Athena is the third audiobook in the series of The Heroes of Olympus. This third installment shifts between different perspectives and take a very different route in establishing the seven heroes with their own struggles. 

In this audiobook, many new characters and old ones make a comeback with all the beloved Greek gods. Annabeth would not want to lose Percy once again and it’s one deadly prophecy standing against seven valiant demi-gods. The story revolves around the thrilling quest to close the doors of death, after finding it. 

Best about this audiobook

The characters have evolved emotionally in this audiobook. It was a really brutal, terrifying story with all of the monsters and war and whatnot. 

Riordan has continued to blow me away with this series. Just when you think that the series can’t get any better The Mark of Athena audiobook runs in. There is an adventure, action, and an underlying quality of seriousness that brings the audiobook to a whole new level. 

  1. Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

After the Percy Jackson and the Olympian and The Heroes of Olympus series, Rick Riordan made a thrilling comeback with Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods. In this story, the son of Poseidon adds his own magic – and sarcastic asides – to the classics. In this audiobook, he explains how the world was created. He also gives listeners his own perspective on who’s who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. This audiobook is the perfect pick for people who love to hear about blood baths, horror shows, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism. 

With this audiobook, Jesse Bernstein also returns as the narrator and if you want to know more about the Greek gods, hop on the bandwagon and enjoy this mad ride of the story.

Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods is an excellent audiobook, filled with all the familiar elements of Greek mythology. One thing that makes this audiobook better than other mythological fantasy audiobooks is the hilarious Percy Jackson narration.

The Dark Prophecy is the second book in the series of The Trial of Apollo. In this second installment, Apollo was sent on earth as a teenager for his second trial. In order to reclaim his place at Mount Olympus, Apollo and his companions seek answers to become a god back again. But it is not an easy task for him, as he faces an ancient Roman emperor who loves blood so much that even a supposed immortal like Apollo is in fear of him. 

There are several adored characters like Leo, Grover, and Calypso who are with Apollo in possibly the hardest challenge of his life. The narration by Robbie Daymond fills life into this thrilling roller coaster ride.

An excellent combination of humor and adventure, this audiobook is narrated by Robbie Daymon who is so good with his work that listeners remain glued to the story till the very end. 

This fourth sequel is all about Apollo’s problems, he has oracles to save, prophecies to unravel, and a triumvirate to defeat so that the earth can be saved and he can become a god again. 

Best about this audiobook

The plot of the story is engaging. When I thought that Riordan had exhausted his pool of monsters, he pulled a rabbit (or a zombie) out of a hat. He keeps things very fresh and new, and always describes them well. His stories allow readers to become more enlightened about the world of myth.

Rick Riordan has made his own genre with all his fantastic mythological audiobooks. His stories have an excellent blend of adventure, humor, and thrill that you are simply immersed in the story, laughing throughout and enjoying the ride. His audiobooks are excellent in terms of characters, storytelling, dialogue delivery, joyful spirit, great plot, and action.
