Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Blood of Olympus - the fifth book in the best-selling 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. 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.

Excellent Again

What did you like most about The Blood of Olympus?

okay I'm not the traditional audience for Rick Riordan's books, I'm an adult who just happens to read a lot, and has a soft spot for fantasy and mythology.

The Percy Jackson series got me hooked, and this series has continued to keep me interested enough to pre-order book five. I'm saying nothing about the story itself because I don't like spoilers, but from the previous four books you just know it's gonna be good.

Who was your favorite character and why?

too many to choose from, Riordan writes some really good characters.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

don't make a film of any more Rick Riordan books, the disaster that was lightning thief was enough to put me off watching any more!!

Any additional comments?

The mythologies are accurate, for kids who don't know their greek and roman mythology (and egyptian with the kane chronicles), these are a fun introduction to them.

A masterpiece

A literary masterpiece. Riordan uses words like a paintbrush, with indescribably beautiful, yet hilarious storylines and plots. Recommended for Harry Potter fans.
