it would be really great if we didn’t constantly have mortal mothers die in rick riordan’s books. like, in percy jackson and the olympians/heroes of olympus/the kane chronicles how many are alive?
jason’s mom is dead, frank’s mom is dead, hazel’s mom is dead, leo’s mom is dead, nico’s mom is dead, the kane siblings’ mom is dead, and now magnus’ mom is dead in the upcoming series. yes, sally jackson is an amazing mom, but having to compensate for all the mothers that have been killed off is a bit much. we have annabeth’s step-mom and ms. castellan but neither has been dealt with all that well.
one of the reasons why i love the relationship between sally and percy is because how often do you really get a mother-child relationship in any form of media? basically i need to have moms that are alive in these books and i really really really REALLY hope that riordan’s next series comes through for me.
The brand new Norse series is titled Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard! The book is slated to come out in 2015.
You’ll never hate the Percy Jackson movies like Rick Riordan hates them
