"Use the catapults!" cried the coach.
"P.S.," Hazel read, "Don't even think about using your catapults."
"Curse it!" Said the coach. "This guy is good."
"Annabeth?" Percy said again. "You're planning something. You've got that I'm-planning-something look."
"I don't have an I'm-planning-something look."
"Yeah, you totally do. Your eyebrows knit and your lips press together and-"
"Do you have a pen?" She asked him.
"You're kidding, right?" He brought out Riptide.
"Yes, but can you actually write with it?"
"I-I don't know," he admitted. "Never tried."
"Yeah, you bet Romani." Percy bared his forearm and showed them the brand he'd gotten at Camp Jupiter - the SPQR mark, with the trident of Neptune. "You mix Greek and Roman, and you know what you get? You get BAM!"
Coach Hedge scowled even deeper. " The war's coming Zhang. Nowhere is safe"
Love is no game! It is no flowery softness! It is hard work- It demands everything from you- especially the truth. Only then does it yield results.”
Oh, I wouldn't say Love always makes you happy. Sometimes it makes you incredibly sad.”
“Yeah, well,” Nico said, “not giving people a second thought…that can be dangerous.”
Lots of death, huh? Personally, I'm trying to avoid lots of death, but you guys have fun!”
Annabeth pressed her lips to Percy’s ear. “I love you.”
She wasn’t sure he could hear her—but if they died, she wanted those to be her last words.”
Sexual Content: Absurd pornographic images come to mind when reading this book.
Violence: Lots of violence; not as gory as most books, but still present.
Sexual Content: There are some slightly inappropriate themes ongoing with a lot of the relationships herein. It's kind of wink-wink in nature, though, so not much to be worried about.
Sexual Content: there is a gay character but that should not stop you from reading this book
Other: I love how everyone mentions *spoilers* that Nico is gay, but dosn't mention any of the other relationships in the book that go way further that whatever *more spoilers* that weird thing with cupid was. odd, odd scene. Also, it felt thrown in. Like, from a story standpoint it did nothing. and now i'm on a rant so I will leave.
Sexual Content: If you're homophobic, I suggest backing away from certain chapters of this book, as the character of Nico di Angelo comes out as gay. While he gets support from all of his fellow demigods - and almost all of the readers - understand this before reading.
