Summary

Summary

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.

Booklist Review

With only days left to defeat Gaea's giants before the Earth Goddess unleashes her destructive powers upon the world, teen demigods Jason, Piper, Annabeth, Percy, Frank, Leo, Hazel, Nico, and Reyna must deal with troubles on multiple fronts. Some focus on Athens, where Gaea will rise from her sleep to destroy the world, while others protect the Athena Parthenos statue and head back to Camp Half-Blood. There, the contentious Roman and Greek demigods must unite if they hope to defeat their common enemies. Readers looking forward to the battle scenes will find plenty here, but the young heroes also rely on their wits as they dupe, charm, and negotiate their way through a series of encounters with gods, goddesses, and mythological creatures. On the last page, Riordan announces that The Sword of Summer (scheduled for a fall 2015 release) will be the first book in his upcoming Norse mythology series, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. Meanwhile, fans will revel in the adventures, wit, and memorable characters found in this thundering conclusion to The Heroes of Olympus series.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2014 Booklist
