Books | Juvenile Fiction / Fantasy & Magic
The Blood of Olympus is the fifth book in the bestselling Heroes of Olympus series - set in the high-octane world of Percy Jackson.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...

"I love this book so much it is a fantastic end to a series. Percy and annabeth don’t have a point of view but that is easily made up by giving us Nico’s point of view which knowing that he’s been there since the titans curse and had one of the roughest life’s out of all demigods it was cool and I loved the teaser of will and Nico getting together which ended up happening and we got the beautiful sun and the star. The quest was great the humor was on point as usual Reyna’s point of view and backstory was great and Leo was being Leo which is always something to appreciate but now to the negatives. There is way to much Jason povs in this book which is probably just a me problem because Jason is really boring compared to like every other character but the biggest reason why this book is 4 stars lack of death which was sadly spoiled to me in a YouTube video that wasn’t even about pjo. It was been hammered down are throats this entire series that one of the 7 were going to die and i was really hoping it was (TOA) Jason which death was spoiled for me by somebody who didn't even read the books but it was leo who died and his death would've meant alot if be wasn't alive 3 chapters later it may have been set up which is good but you don't tell somebody something for 5 books than in the end it doesn't happen but otherwise the book is great and set up trials of apollo great which is the only series other than a certain death i haven't been completely spoiled on "

"Pretty classic but I would say when the heroes got to fight alongside their divine parents. It gave me goosebumps just by imagining how it would look like animated. Also I really liked Reyna moment of glory when she brought back the Athena Parthenos and received Athena’s recognition and benediction. I think it was a well deserved moment of glory for her since I think she did not have that much time to shine compared to the 7"
