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.

I haven’t read an NA book in awhile, and I have to admit, I seriously miss them. Like, a whole lot. The romance, the smut, the whirlwind plot line, and the best part? You don’t have to worry about anyone dying, because there’s always a happy ending. I was pretty eager to start on Smut, as it was about two very different writers having to work together on a project. Furthermore, I have always looove a good enemies-to-lovers trope. I mean, imagine all the fights that lead to the passion between the sheets! *smirky face* HAHAH okay, I’m sorry. If […]

I swear, Rick Riordan secretly wants all his readers to die of heart attack, because that was what it felt like to read this book. Practically every page turned is a new bout of heart attack. I should have listened to everyone when they told me that The House of Hades would kill me, but did I listen to them? Of course I didn’t. Instead, I went into this book with a hopeful heart, and obviously, Mr Riordan crushed it at every page. I mean, the dude started his book with this letter to his readers: “To my wonderful readers: […]

Oh. My. God. Why didn’t I read this book sooner? It’s really really really really good. REALLY GOOD. AND AIDEN. AND SETH. HOTNESS PARADISE. Reading Covenant reminded me of other Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books. It was really amazing how she had that unique writing, that can make readers go “Yup, this is Jennifer’s book, alright.” The main character in this book, Alex, was more or less my favorite type of girl. It was definitely cool that she had a guy’s name, as her nickname. What made her even better was that she was stubborn, rebellious and reckless. YUP, my favorite girl. […]

This series has become one of my favorite series of all times. Also, BEST. ENDING. EVER. We definitely get to see more of Raffe and Penryn’s moments, which I was seriously in need of especially since they both were separated for practically the whole of the second book. Penryn was more different, more mature, in which she had the face everything on her own. There was nobody there to guide her, and she had to make decisions that would best benefit the human race. Basically, she had to learn to put the human race before her love, that kinda thing. […]
