The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan

The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan - 516 pages
The Heroes of Olympus - book 5

This is the final book in The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan.  Reyna, Nico and Coach Hedge are taking the Athena Parthenos to Camp Half Blood - if they can make it there.  Both Reyna and Nico are going to have to face their ultimate fears -- Reyna's past and Nico's loneliness.  Meanwhile, Piper, Jason, Annabeth, Percy, Hazel, Frank, and Leo continue on to Athens to try to stop Gaea from rising.  They too will have to face their fears to finally defeat Gaea.

This was a good end to the series.  It was much better than the last book which was slow and boring.  This kept the action going the entire time.  I particularily enjoyed Reyna's and Nico's stories as they were the characters we did not know as much about.  A great series ender.
