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.

    The blood of olympus by Rick Riordan is a fantasy book about the greek gods and their mortal children.The blood of olympus takes place in greece and surrounding countries. The seven demigods heros are aboard the Argo ll. The heros are racing toward Athens where the giants are going to awake Gaea the goddess of the earth. The Greek and Roman camps are at the verge of war. A Roman named Reyna must transport the Athena Parthenos. My favorite parts are, the giant battle in Athens with the gods and giants.The huge battle at camp half blood where Leo died but Gaea was defeated. Later in the book Leo is alive thanks to a potion and saved Claspo from her island.If you like mythology and action,you will love this book.

                    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
