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.

The Awesome Action suspense all of that is crazy read this book plz its so good

This book is amazing and I want you guys to read this book because it is good and I love it!


American author Rick Riordan's The Blood of Olympus is the final installment of his five-part The Heroes of Olympus series. The young adult novel was released in 2014 and tells of the final exploits of the seven demigods of the Prophecy of Seven in their quest to defeat Gaea, the Earth Mother

its great but I think the ending was kind of disappointing. but house of hades is awesome

Not bad! Although it wasn't as good as the other books, it was still a great addition to the series. Recomended for ages 11+.

This is the final book in the heroes of olympus series. It is fun and sad to see the series come to an end.

He has done it again. As usual, this is one of the greatest books that I have read that is written by Rick Riordan. I read one of his books in third grade, and have been hooked on the series since. I have read many of the other series, too. All of them combine action, emotion, and countless other stuff that a book needs. That's why many of these books are my favorite. Well done, Rick!

Truly a spellbinding finish to the bestselling Heroes of Olympus series! Rick Riordan flawlessly combines emotion, suspense, description, high stakes, romance, character development, and humor into five hundred unputdownable pages. I truly could not stop reading; each chapter starts off with such a darkly humorous sentence—"Dive-bombing a volcano was not on Reyna’s bucket list," for example—that it's impossible not to get all the way through. The tension just keeps mounting until the ball finally drops and the event we've been waiting for for five novels finally happens. Everything is so ridiculously satisfying, and the aftermath of the main climax point at the end feels so warm with a note of melancholy, truly perfect for this particular series. When I first started HoO, I didn't expect to like all of the seven demigods chosen for the prophecy; if three's a crowd, then seven's a population. But every one of these characters is so multifaceted, with their own fears, strengths, and weaknesses, that it becomes nearly inconceivable not to resonate and empathize with each of them. Even the characters who were not part of the Seven, like Nico and Reyna, captured my heart in this book. Truly a worthwhile read.

This book is real fun, and it leads you to GREEKMYTHOLOGY! REEEEEEEAAAAAD IT!
