The Blood Of Olympus

It's called the blood of olympus for a reason. There is quite a lot of violence in this book. The death tally is high for the demigods and they of course it is a war so monsters of different kinds die. Some of the people that die talk about why they are drawn to the island they are on one being drawn there by hatred. There is some more talk about nice being gay at the end. I think this should be for teens if you think you teen is mature enough but not otherwise.

This title has:

Too much violence
