Waiting on Wednesday (23): The Blood of Olympus!!

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It gives us the chance to fangirl over all of the books that we can't wait to read!

THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS (The Heroes of Olympus #5) by Rick Riordan

Hitting the shelves on October 7, 2014 from Disney-Hyperion (Twitter: @DisneyHyperion)

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.


Now that I'm all caught up with the Heroes of Olympus series, I absolutely CANNOT wait to read The Blood of Olympus! :D I can't wait to read about what happens to Percy, Annabeth, Jason, Nico, Piper, Frank, Leo, and Hazel! Seriously...this book CANNOT come out fast enough!!! AND I CAN'T EXPRESS HOW EXCITED I AM FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Who else can't wait to read The Blood of Olympus?
And what are you waiting for this Wednesday?
