The Blood of Olympus Chapter XLII

By Rick Riordan

Chapter XLII


  • Piper, Percy, and Annabeth reach the Acropolis safely.
  • Frank, who has taken the form of a swarm of bees, flies back to relay to Hazel that they've made it.
  • She uses her Mist to transform the three into monsters; then they split up to storm the Parthenon.
  • Piper takes every opportunity she can to slay monsters and disable weapons along the way.
  • Maybe she should have gone faster; when she arrives at Porphyrion's throne, he's taken Annabeth and Percy hostage. Bad news.
