9780141339252: The Blood of Olympus (Heroes of Olympus Book 5)

The Blood of Olympus is the fifth book in the bestselling Heroes of Olympus series - set in the high-octane world of Percy Jackson. This exlusive edition comes with a bonus short story, The Son of Sobek, published in print for the first time!

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...

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2014. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Despite their many victories in their quests, the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II aren?t getting any closer to defeating Gaea, the mother of the earth. Her sons, the Titans, have risen, and they are as unstoppable as ever. Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens on the Feast of Spes. With their blood, the very blood of Olympus, she can fully awaken. The demigods have continuous visions about a horrific battle at Camp Half-Blood. Camp Jupiter?s Roman legion is almost within range to attack it, and Octavian is at the helm of the force. The demigods cannot use the Athena Parthenos, for they know it belongs at Long Island, where it may prevent a war between their two camps. The demigods go east, alone in their battle against Gaea and her forces. The Gods are still useless to them, suffering from multiple personality disorder. At Athens, everything will come to an end. Especially if Gaea awakens. Printed Pages: 565. Bookseller Inventory # 79659
