Publisher's Summary

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 mightbe 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.

why oh why did they ever switch narrators!!!!!!!!!

What did you like best about The Blood of Olympus? What did you like least?

the story was great. the narrator was TERRIBLE !!!!!!!!!!.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Chamian’s performances?


If this book were a movie would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

What disappointed you about The Blood of Olympus?

The voice actor. As with the last book I was barely able to finish this one due to the grating illiterate sounding voice of Nick Chamian. Now that I have finished this series I will seriously never buy another audiobook narrated by this guy. Whether or not I like the book will be irrelevant.

If you’ve listened to books by Rick Riordan before, how does this one compare?

Not well. There have been several books made into successful audiobooks from this author and all but this and the house of hades have been amazing. I have listened to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series numerous times, and loved the Kane chronicles but I can't bring myself to listen to the heroes of Olympus again because it means having to again suffer through the books read by this guy.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Chamian?

Honestly, anybody. Though I would probably have held out for the actor who started the series and let him finish it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment. I mean did you guys even listen to house of hades? If so, I shudder to think how this book got made.

Any additional comments?

Please please please spend the money and re record this book with the original actor or at least someone I don't want to pop my eardrums listening to.
