Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of theArgo IIhave 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 itmightbe able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; theArgo IIwill 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Rick Riordan! I'm a big fan of all the Rick Riordan books I've read so far. While I read this one a while back, I still remember enjoying it immensely! This final repair of the rift between the two camps, the gods being able to compose themselves and help their demigod children finally put Gaia back to sleep and stop her from raising the giants again? Awesome! Also I've loved Calypso from her introduction in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Finally seeing her be released from her tormented isolation and finding love with Leo Valdez? My heart burst with joy for them. Also Leo's sacrifice? Not knowing if he'd be able to survive that mission and deceiving his friends so they would live? Heartbreaking. So happy everything turned out well. Thank you Rick Riordan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT END! My girlfriend and I are so crazy about this series ever since our college years. It was sad for both of us that the long series finally ended, but it was definitely worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little dissapointed It may be because I'm sad that this series had to end but I was a little disappointed with the ending. I read it as soon as it came out and finished it within a day. The Percy Jackson series will always be my favourite but I think the Heroes of Olympus did not end on a strong note. I think the characters deserved a better ending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still amazing but slightly disappointing.... Well.... of course we start off with a billion Jason chapters. When he was about to die I was SOOOO HAPPY. I do not like Jason at all but of course, he lives. :// We didn't really get much of Percy or Annabeth's POV which really sucks.... But, we did get Reyna's POV which I thought was really cool since wee got to know so much more about her. Again, Jason continues to be useless but fortunately (spoiler alert) Octavian dies (YESSSSS), we get a glimpse of Solangelo and Leo returns to Calypso but of COURSE the book ends with a cliffhanger :// The book was overall was really nice, but I fell it could've ended better and added more things to it, especially more stuff with Percy and Annabeth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Endings, Yet Still Not 100% Satisfactory I as very pleased with this book. Problems were resolved, I was brought to the emotional brink time and time again, and by the end, my heart was sore, but happy. But then, I wasn't entirely satisfied with how this book ended. It's left unclear as to what happens to a certain two characters, and maybe it's petty of me, but I would have liked a bit more clarity. Overall, the series as a whole was great, and a great continuation of the original PJO series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's OK Not exactly what I was expecting, it was kind of similar to the other series by Riordan. It was still a great read though

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT, but the battle though. I thought that the previous books had built up this unbeatable representation of Gaia and the battle was too easy and lacked excitement.Still would recommend to all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Blood of olympus The blood of olympus was an amazing conclusion to the heroes of olympus series. Rick Riordan had very high expectations for this book, and he definitely met those expectations. There was never a dull moment because Riordan had so much material to fit into the book. The only thing I didn't like as much is that there were many questions left unanswered at the end of the book. If you read the books before this one, and you liked them, you will love this book

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Blood of Olympus Riordan blends a mix of real history and mythology that creates the perfect backdrop for this adventurous tale. The superimposition of what was-is-will be also creates an impressive backdrop and intricate twists to the plot. The fast paced story brings together the various aspects of the series in a fantastic conclusion. Riordan kept me captivated throughout with this vibrant, larger than life tale. Riordan’s characters embody the best of Roman and Greek demi-gods as well as being modern day teenagers. The mix creates unforgettable individuals that you want to go on a quest with. They’ve grown and morphed throughout the series, culminating in this bunch of adventurous individuals who’ve definitely gripped my heart. Riordan doesn’t wrap this series up in a pretty little bow, but rather leaves it open for any of the characters to continue on into their own series. At the same time, there is a sense of completion that allows the series to end well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down! This was a Christmas gift for my 15 yr old son. He has been following the series. Little did I know I skipped a book and had to take him to Chapters to get book 4. He read them in two days. Yes both books. They were obviously amazing reads because he couldn't put the books down. My 40 something year old hubby is following the series also.
