The Blood of Olympus Chapter LVI

By Rick Riordan

Chapter LVI


  • Jason knocks on Nico's door at dawn. He says he'll be going back and forth between the camps…and he has some shrines to build. (Kym will be glad to hear that.)
  • Nico says that he's going to stay at Camp Half-Blood to be head counselor of the Hades cabin.
  • Jason is glad he's staying, but Will interrupts the two of them.
  • He wonders why Nico hasn't come by to visit him in the infirmary.
  • Nico agrees to help his friend (Will calls himself Nico's friend!) and even agrees to rest three days…and let Will take care of him. Wink wink, nudge nudge.
  • Nico goes to talk to Percy and Annabeth, who are hanging out nearby.
  • They're excited to go to college…and stuff.
  • Nico tells them that he's staying behind and admits to Percy that he had a crush on him…but he's over it.
  • Totes.
  • Then he returns to where Will is waiting.
