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.

            It is great though all the 7 plus Nico and Reyna could've defeated Gaia, then that would be awesome. Especially Percy since he survived Tartarus and fought major Titans and Giants, he could've easily destroyed Gaia. Also, read Trials of Apollo series they're awesome! :D

                Loved the book i just think they beat gia to quickly, i mean it only took like two pages to beat her, It all just seemed a little forced. Unlike the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which were the best books i have ever read.

                      One of my favorite Rick Riordan books. Note Please read this before Trials of Apollo or that book won't make much sense.
