The Blood of Olympus Chapter XI

By Rick Riordan

Chapter XI


  • The goddess Nike is feeling a little schizophrenic. She splits into two images: Nike and her Roman counterpart, Victoria.
  • They try to convince her to come with them—that Gaea is the real enemy—but she won't listen.
  • She wants Leo, Percy, Frank, and Hazel to fight to the death to win her honor, but they say they'll fight her instead.
  • Nike summons four metal killing machines, the Nikai, and says they have five minutes to prepare and come to the stadium.
  • The crew makes a plan, and Leo provides everyone with gadgets and tromps to the stadium.
