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.
AND THAT CONCLUDES THE END OF THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS HOORAY!
I was really really impressed by the way Rick Riordan ended off this whole series, with a whole lot of explosions and deaths and whatnots obviously. I was kinda sad that there were no POVs by Percy Jackson, but I guess it’s time for him to take a break. After all, he was from the first Percy Jackson series. ALSO, I did get to learn more about the other characters, such as Leo and Nico. NICO. OMG. MY HEART. Have I said how much I completely adore Nico, despite being the scary son of Hades?
Actually I pretty much adore everybody in this book HEHE.
ALSO CAN UNCLE RICK PLEASE GENERATE TONS OF OTHER BOOKS?? ABOUT NICO SPECIFICALLY OR MAYBE LEO OR JASON OR SOMEBODY?????
yEAH, I’M DEMANDING
Anyway, as per usual, Rick Riordan managed to completely break all our hearts and throw tons of feels at us. Half the time, I was either biting my nails in fear or outright crying because FEEEELS. And and and I love that the ending was not really that conclusive because COME ON, HE MIGHT WRITE ANOTHER BOOK, MAYBE????? i hope so. please.
THIS BOOK, AND ITS ENTIRE SERIES IS BEAUTIFUL. AND YOU NEED TO READ IT. ASAP.
