Publisher Description

Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers 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 final novel in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series not only brings new life to Greek and Roman mythology; it offers satisfying conclusions to a beloved series.”

    - Barnes&, editorial review
  • “Readers looking forward to the battle scenes will find plenty here, but the young heroes also rely on their wits as they dupe, charm, and negotiate their way through a series of encounters with gods, goddesses, and mythological creatures…Fans will revel in the adventures, wit, and memorable characters found in this thundering conclusion to the Heroes of Olympus series.”

    - Booklist
  • “Nick Chamian creates a subtly distinct voice for the character of Nico di Angelo in this last installment of the Heroes of Olympus series. Chamian’s pace is steady as two groups of Greek and Roman demigods traverse continents in an attempt to fight Gaea…Chamian shines in the voices he creates for the gods and mythical creatures, but the demigods are less distinct, so it occasionally becomes unclear who’s speaking. While the action-packed plot includes puzzles and twists, this is primarily a story about Nico and his friends coming to terms with themselves and figuring out where they belong. Fans of the series will be satisfied.”
