Though the Greek and Roman crew members 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 book is probably the best book in the series, yet. It is filled with amazhang characters. (Anyone got the pun?) and humorous dialogue. The seven heroes: Percy, Annabeth, Hazel, Frank, Jason, Piper, and Leo are headed toward Athens to stop the giants from waking Gaea while Reyna, Nico, and Coach Hedge are shadow-travelling to Camp Half-Blood to restore peace between the two camps. Will the Reyna, Nico, and Coach Hedge succeed even with a dangerous hunter on their tails? (For Coach Hedge, literally) Will the seven great heroes save the world even when the prophecy states that one is fated to die? Find out in the new Heroes of Olympus book: The Blood of Olympus.
