The Blood of Olympus Chapter XII

By Rick Riordan

Chapter XII


  • Bob Costas is out sick (pink eye), so we're not going to give you a full play-by-play of the battle.
  • Quick recap: Percy and pals win.
  • They trap Nike in a magic net, and she blabs about a "physician's cure" (12.114) giving them a clue on where to go next.
  • They need the poison of Pylos, the chained god's heartbeat in Sparta, and the curse of Delos.
  • Because she won't shut up, Frank puts a sock in it (her mouth) and Leo duct tapes it in.
  • Off they go!
  • First stop: Poison of Pylos.
