The Heroes of Olympus
Expected: October 7th, 2014
Description from GoodReads:
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.
Why I Want it:
I've loved Percy Jackson since 2010 when I was in grade 6, he was one of the first books that started my love for reading. I can't wait to finally see the end to his beloved story, I hope not too many people die.
Why You Should Want it:
Percy Jackson and friends are perfect for people who aren't big fans of reading, his story is hilarious , adventurous and a blast to read about. It's also a perfect blend of Greek and Roman for fans of both mythologies. You won't believe how much you learn about the different myth's in this series. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, young and old!
