Rise of the Olympians by Belle Ward is an outstanding story with mystery and intrigue which captivates and engages the reader from the first page until the last page.
Lilah wakes up excited because it is her 13th birthday and puts on her colored clip-on hair extensions. After celebrating with her dad and brother, Lilah's hair has turned all different colors and she can't find any of the clips in her hair. At night, she dreams of a voice telling her that the Father of the Monsters is soon to rise, meet the celestial one and the one who rules death to bring together The Thirteen.
My favorite part of the story is when Lilah sees her hair all different colors, can't find any of the clip-ons, rushes to get her brother's help, and doesn't know how she will explain this to her dad.
Rise of the Olympians is the beginning of an exciting series, highly recommended, wonderfully written story by the talented Belle Ward.
I received an ARC of Rise of the Olympians by Belle Ward.

Rise of the Olympians is a middle grade book written by an extremely talented young woman.
Lilah is about to celebrate her birthday. She puts clip on rainbow colors in her hair and gets cake, doesn’t get in trouble at school and gets presents. One of her presents includes a beautiful necklace her father gets for her. Then she has a dream that tells her she needs to reunite the others to fight against an upcoming evil threat. Lilah thinks it’s all just a dream and then she wakes up with rainbow hair and some boys are telling her they’re Greek gods. Lilah’s life just got interesting.
Lilah was a fun character and I really enjoyed her hyperactive charisma about everything. She doesn’t freak out too much. I love how her character is totally correct in how she would act. Sometimes I get a middle grade book and some of the actions or thoughts the characters have don’t seem realistic. Lilah was one hundred percent authentic which made the story for me.
I have to say Belle Ward takes after her mother with torturous endings that definitely leave you craving more. Can’t wait for the next one.
