Only one book left in the series and things are looking bad for Percy and his friends. Kronos has risen and war between the Gods and Titans is imminent. I need to get the fifth book asap!

One funny scene: Annabeth challenges the Sphinx. The Sphinx has embraced 21st century education, complete with a #2 pencil and automatic grading machine.

"Now second question, what is the square root of sixteen?"
"Four," Annabeth said, "but--"
"Correct! Which US president signed the Emancipation Proclamation?"
"Abraham Lincoln, but--"
"Correct! Riddle number four. How much--"
"Hold up!" Annabeth shouted. "These aren't riddles."
"What do you mean?" the Sphinx snapped. "Of course they are. This test material is specially designed--"
"It's just a bunch of dumb, random facts," Annabeth insisted. "Riddles are supposed to make you think."
"Think?" The Sphinx frowned. "How am I supposed to test whether you can think?"
