The cover for the final installment in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series, Blood of Olympus, has been revealed!
The cover came to us via USA Today. You can check it out below:
Sticking with the same vivid style we’ve seen used with the previous Heroes of Olympus books, the cover for Blood of Olympus is eye-catching and exciting. At the top, we can see Jason with his sword as he jumps off a pillar and is surrounded by lightning, Hazel on her horse, and Frank with his bow and arrow.
Below, several monstrous creatures await our heroes. They might look like they’re ready for what the demigods are bringing to the table, but we have a feeling they don’t stand a chance.
As usual, we love the detail of the cover, including the weapons stuck in one of the monsters’ hair!
The Blood of Olympus will be released on October 7. The official synopsis states:
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.
