Cover Reveal + Thoughts: Blood Of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Title: Blood of Olympus, THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion 
Format: Hardcover


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.

Thoughts on the cover: There were a lot of Demigods whom I talked to on social media websites that have 50/50 takes on this one. Some of them like it, while others wish that the cover included all seven Greek and Roman demigods. 

To be honest, I quite like this cover. It gives a shroud of mystery to what exactly is gonna happen. And I pray that it wouldn't be the death of *flails*! I cannot say! Yes, I am not one of the haters, but yes, I did agree on the part that they could've included more characters. But here's to the secret of the cover and what's going to happen! Cheers!

Expected Date of Release: October 7, 2014
