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.

Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan is one of the most terrific books you will ever read in your life! It is filled with adventure, drama, action, and it is funny occasionally too, because of Leo’s jokes. This book is so amazing because it shows the strength of these teens who have been through everything, but still persevere. I cried when I read this book, it had touching moments. Rick Riordan outdid his self with this astounding novel. I thought the first books were great, but this is on another level of greatness. This is a book you can go back and read ten times and still be surprised at things that happened in the book. I give this book five stars fully, and suggest it to anyone in need of a splash of awesomeness in their lives. Blood of Olympus is a winning book if their ever was one.
