Publisher Comments:

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.

'Atlas't! The world's fate was in the hands of 7 demigods and I could not put this book down until the Earth was put down! Uncle Rick absolutely delivered in this finale to The Heroes of Olympus series. It's definitely a gem to read about Greek Mythology but with delightful references to all the food and places in our modern world. Trust. Loyalty. Friendship. Love. Sacrifice. All these crucial topics were woven together exquisitely to bring the book to a new level and bring a family together from all walks of life. A refreshing read!

I can't wait for this book to come out! I have loved all those that came before it, and I just know that this one is going to be the best one yet. I also realize that this is a pretty lame comment, but there isn't much to comment on, as this book hasn't come out yet.
