by Rick Riordan
Disney Hyperion, 2014. Fiction, 516 p.

This is the last in "The Heroes of Olympus" series.  The seven demigods have split up in their final desperate attempt to stop Gaea from rising.  Reyna, Nico and Coach Hedge are trying to transport the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half Blood, while the rest-- Percy, Annabeth, Leo, Piper, Jason and Hazel-- travel on the Argos II in search for the Physician's Cure that will raise a person from the dead before facing the giants at Olympus. Of course, as they pursue their quest they fight monsters, outwit minor gods, and explore their relationships with each other and with their parents.  Although there are few surprises, fans will enjoy this satisfying end to a very popular series.
