Synopsis: 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
My Take: I enjoyed this book a lot because the Percy Jackson series and its spin off Heroes of Olympus and I enjoyed every book I've read from Rick Riordan. I won't give you my favorite part because its a HUGE twist in the plot but my least favorite part without details is about Gaea and if I go into more detail I may spoil it so I won't do that. However one thing I liked about this book is Leo finally maybe gets a possible girlfriend! Which is honestly pretty nice considering the fact he was in a group of 7 with no girlfriend although that made him less of a target because love is a powerful force.
I think that the the exposition and climax were great the wrap up was okay but I can't wait for my birthday (I might get the Son of Sobek!) I will post a review right after I finish it.
I enjoyed Blood of Olympus tremendously and I can't wait to see if he decides to yet again make another spin off but combining Carter Kane and Percy Jackson after the Son Of Sobek!
