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.

This is by far one of my favorite books of all time. To think that when I was given The Lightning Thief that i didn't want to read it! Now Rick Riordan is one of my favorite authors, with the Heroes of Olympus as one of my favorite book series. There are so many good parts in this book, but I wont spoil anything, you will have to find out for yourself.

About a quarter way through and already love it! I’m looking forward to Solango (My friends accidentally spoiled Nico’s love life) and the battle coming up! Also looking forward to trials of Apollo and all the books to come (Though his cliffhangers suck)!

Dunno ab u, but my fave part was where Reyna meets the Hunters of Artimes and the Amazons. I pro ally read this part over and over to capture every moment in my head forever. I mean, I love Thalia, Phobe and Reyna and her sis's characters. Girl Powah!!
Like this if u think that Roiridan should write a book just about them and their life. I mean, there has to be a book about a girl character soon, u with me? I mean, the Hunters are great!
Like if u agree!!!

"Lady," he said, "could you fold your flappers, please? You're giving me a sunburn."
"What?" Nike's head jerked toward him like a startled chicken's. "Oh...my brilliant plumage. Very well. I suppose you can't die in glory if you are blinded and burned."

Nico had once read a story from Plato, who claimed that in the ancient times, all humans had been a combination of male and female. Each person had two heads, four arms, four legs. Supposedly, these combo-humans had been so powerful they made the gods uneasy, so Zeus split them in half - man and woman. Every since, humans felt incomplete. They spent their lives searching for their other halves.
And where does that leave me? Nico wondered.
It wasn't his favorite story.

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!!!!!
