The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus #5) - Rick Riordan 8.66   152

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.

After ten books, the "Camp Half-Blood Series" stops. We've had five "Percy Jackson ..." books and now, the fifth and final "Heroes of Olympus", "The Blood of Olympus" has been released. It's been a long way. This book sees the end of the Greek and Roman demigods and it's rather climactic. Riordan really is the 'myth master', as he called on the English covers. He's done a great job. Just read this book and the entire series. Starting with "The Lightning Thief", Riordan has made a book series of about 5300 pages, counting those of the spin-off books and the Jackson-Chase/Kane e-novellas as well. It's been an awesome journey. Well done, 'Uncle Rick'. Now, on to "Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard".
