FEATURE: Waiting on Wednesday~ The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus #5) by Rick Riordan (#37)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Morning Swooners :-)

This week my "can't-wait-to-read" pre-publication selections are:

Expected release date: October 7, 2014
Purchase: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

Summary from Goodreads:

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. 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 multiples personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young 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 I'm waiting:

This is one of my absolute favorite series and I literally get itchy waiting on these books...they are my drug!

  4. Haha, I'm so on that train with everyone! Why must we wait another two months for it?? I've been in love with these characters since 2007, and I'm sad that this is the last one! But I will still read it immediately upon getting it, hah! Excellent pick!
