Waiting on Wednesday - Nov 13, 2013
Here's a book that I have been waiting on for weeks. Yes, just weeks, because, after all, the most recent addition to the series, The House of Hades, came out in the second week of October.

I've been thoroughly obsessed with the series forever - I have been obsessively reading the whole Percy Jackson series since Riordan came out with The Lightning Thief.  I hope you enjoy!

The Blood Of Olympus, Book Five

Release date October 7, 2014

Cover Not Final
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.

What are YOU waiting for?

  1. I still need to read House of Hades but I can't wait! Apparently it's the best of the series so far. Maybe I'll read it closer to the release date of this one so I won't have to do another re-read :P
    Great pick!
