One of our Books of the Year 2014   Another awesome epic from Rick Riordan who has created a vibrant and compelling landscape for adventure hewn from Greek mythology. Time is running out for the demi-gods in their fight against Gaia, the all-powerful mother earth. She needs these demigods for their blood and she will stop at nothing until she has them! Percy, Jason and their brave-hearted crew have miraculously survived every challenge that has been put before them. But Gaia’s giants have defeated them at every turn. Now, the Feast Of Spes is nearly arrived. Two demigods will be sacrificed to provide the blood Gaia so badly needs and, once she is awake, there will be no future for the Percy, Jason and the rest. This is a challenge they have to win. Can they? ~ Julia Eccleshare

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...
