The Blood of Olympus Chapter XXXV

By Rick Riordan

Chapter XXXV


  • Leo gets the Argo II airborne, and they fly over the temple of Asclepius.
  • Leo uses a claw for a game of ancient Greek crane game by reaching down and turning and twisting the stones of the temple to unlock a hidden entrance.
  • Down they go: Jason, Piper, and Leo.
  • They reach Asclepius' waiting room, where they're attacked by a statue of Hygeia, who demands to see their insurance.
  • Like most insurance matters, it's a disaster involving snakes, acid, and a giant battle.
  • Leo manages to re-program the statue to destroy itself, and the door to the doctor's office opens to admit them.
