Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen-all of them, and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood-the blood of Olympus-in order to wake. The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps.The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

Long time coming So, I read this book a while ago now. I’ve been putting off doing the review for it. Not because I don’t want to, I’ve just been a little busy with life. That’s all. It took me a few weeks to even read this book in what should’ve been probably a few days. Why did it take so long? We...
The series was a disappointment overall. It was disappointing to see that the POVs didn't include Percy and Annabeth. It's not that I necessarily needed them since this isn't "their" series, but it would have been nice to see (unless Riordan intends to explore their world more). It was difficult to ...
Great end to a great series. I don't know which demigod I love the most. :)
This is the end of The Heroes of Olympus series. I am terrible at reviewing series so I'm not even going to really try. I liked this series, I didn't like it as much as Percy Jackson and the Olympians but I liked the variety of characters in this series. I loved the ending. I don't know if I'll pi...
