The Blood of Olympus
Author: Rick Riordan aka the god of fantasy-myth novels
Publish Date: October 7, 2014
Genre: myth, fantasy
Book in a series: 5th books (last fucking bool im going to cry)

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.

 THE LAST PERCY BOOK! I NEED A MOMENT. SERIOUSLY. This book will definitely kill me once it is released! The Blood of Olympus aka the conclusion to one of the most spectacular, phenomenal, jaw-dropping and all words synonymous to AMAZING. **SQUEAAALS* Someone will die? Who? Who? Will there be reunion of old characters? What will happen? What? What? How will they defeat Geae, rather, who between STORM or FIRE will defeat WORLD? Oh my gods, I'm going to piss on my pants I am so freaking excited!! At the same time, this book makes me sad and melancholic in contrary to my excitement. This is the last percy book and we need to say goodbye to the characters we had loved since The Lightning Thief :((((((( I know that Rick will never ever disappoint, so, I am just expecting sheer creativity, mind-blowing plot twists, intense action scenes, awesomeness at its finest and a truck load of greek mojos!! AHHHHHHHHH CANT WAIT!!

What's your pick?
