December 2014 Book of the Month.
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
This is the fifth and final book in the bestselling spin-off series, Heroes of Olympus, set in the high-octance world of Percy Jackson.
The Heroes of Olympus -
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...
