The Blood of OlympusBook - 2014
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.

“'Like your zodiac sign?' Percy asked. 'I'm a Leo.'
'No, stupid,' Leo said, 'I'm a Leo. You're a Percy.”
-Percy Jackson and Leo Valdez; The Blood Of Olympus
"Kill the demigods!" Kekrops hissed.
Before many of his warriors could follow, Hazel pointed her blade at the nearest tunnel. The ground rumbled. The tunnels collapsed, billowing plumes of dust. Kekrops looked around at his army, now reduced to six guys.
At the end of the hall stood a walnut door with a bronze plaque:
MD, DMD, DME, DC, DVS, FAAN, OMG, EMT, TTYL, FRCP, ME, IOU, OD, OT, PHARMD, BAMF, RN, PHD, INC., SMH"
There may have been more acronyms in the list, by by that point Leo's brain had exploded.
Jason: "Uh, you know, getting sanitized by giant snakes isn't covered by our medical plan."
Frank held out the vial of Pylosian mint. "Don't break it."
Leo nodded gravely. "Don't break the vial of deadly poison. Man, I'm glad you said that. NEVER would have occurred to me."
Leo: "Way ahead of you, Aquaman."
Percy: "Okay, do NOT call me Aquaman. That's even worse than Water Boy."
The whole crew sat on deck, without a storm or monster attack to worry about for the first time in days, and ate ice cream. Well, except for Frank, who was lactose intolerant. He got an apple.
Percy frowned. "Why did Kymopoleia call you a Pontiac?"
Jason's laugh literally cleared the air. "Pontifex. It means priest."
"Oh. It still sounds like a car. 'The new Pontifex XLS'."

In this book, seven demigods are trying to save the world from Gaea, a crazy earth goddess. The demigods have to go all over Greece to find ingredients for a potion in case one of them dies. They have to get to the Parthenon in Athens by August 1st to stop giants from destroying the world and stuff.
This book is outstanding... To keep the goddess Gaea from waking, the 7 half-bloods known as Percy, Annabeth, Frank, Hazel, Piper, Jason, and Leo need to fight what seems like all the monsters you could ever imagine. But, in the meantime Nico, Reyna, and Coach Hedge are bringing the Athena Parthenos back to camp to prevent Gaea from rising there and maybe prevent war between the Greek and Roman half-bloods.
The Demigods of the argo 2 have to stop two wars with the romans and the giants, while two demigods ad a satyr bring a statue to bring peace to the two camps, the demigods of the prophocy of the seven have to stop Gaea from rising even though going to stop Gaea from rising may even help her because she needs two demigods of the opposite genders blood spilt on the earth during a ritual.
Happy Reading Everybody!!!!!
The seven demigods head to Greece to help prevent Gaea from waking while Nico, Reyna, and Coach Hedge bring the Athena Partenous to camp Half-Blood trying to bring peace between the demigod camps. And if the demigods fail, and Gaea wakes, the game's over.
