The original heroes from The Lightning Thief reunite to face their greatest task together: bringing Percy to college against the interference of the gods.
This is the first hero. A fresh experience.
The modern-day son of Poseidon, Percy Jackson, has already saved the world numerous times by fighting monsters, Titans, and even giants, and now he just wants a normal senior year of high school.
Unfortunately, the Greek gods have other ideas and have assigned Percy three additional quests to complete.
The first problem is that Ganymede, the gods’ cupbearer, has lost his golden chalice. As well as being embarrassing (why do the gods continuously losing their magical items? ), this might have extremely negative consequences. Anyone who drinks from the cup will instantly gain the divine abilities of a deity. The established deities look down on upstart deities.
Before the chalice falls into the wrong hands, will Percy and his companions Annabeth and Grover track it down? Will they be able to withstand its tremendous strength even if they do?
This epic adventure from New York Times bestselling author Rick Riordan has legendary heroes, magical creatures, ancient Greek gods, and a relationship that stands the test of time, and will be enjoyed by readers both new and old to the Percy Jackson universe.
Beginning of the Plot
The author, a demigod, faces the pressures of being a high school senior and the attention of possible recruiters. They enrol at Alternative High School, a converted Queens primary school that welcomes students with learning disabilities or unfortunate circumstances. The author’s stepfather, Paul Blofis, thinks the school’s swim team and Olympic-size pool may be a suitable match for them. The author also assures Annabeth, their girlfriend, that they will complete high school on schedule so that they may enrol in college together. The author has trouble sleeping at the prospect of her leaving for California without them.
The school infirmary is now the guidance counselor’s office, where Percy Jackson finds himself. Eudora, the counsellor, had a jar of Jolly Ranchers and the demeanour of a deity. The mortal guidance counsellor is attempting to assist him with his college applications, but she has no brochures. When it comes to Eudora, Percy isn’t sure whether she’s a true counsellor or simply a kind person who wants to help him out.
Eudora is a sea goddess who wears a clothing made from the membrane of a jellyfish. But the mortal guidance counsellor doesn’t have a pamphlet to aid him with his college application. Whether the Mist is misinterpreting Eudora’s intentions or whether he is just misunderstood, Percy is confused.
According to Eudora, in order to enrol at New Rome University, he must provide standardised test results, certified transcripts, and a current psychoeducational examination. However, there are further conditions before he may enter, such as three letters of heavenly approval. When Eudora suggests Percy check into Ho-Ho-Kus Community College as a fallback option, he isn’t sure whether she means to assist him or not.
Even though the protagonist is frustrated, he understands that she is simply trying to assist him because she was told to by the protagonist’s father. He certainly didn’t need this type of bad news on a Monday morning, or ever.
The protagonist is having trouble applying to colleges and is worried that his father won’t support him. Since Eudora, a teacher, thinks the protagonist may be correct, she agrees to meet with him in person to clarify the problem. The protagonist puts on a show of calmness, although his father hasn’t spoken with him in a long time and only brings him to his underwater castle just before a war breaks out. The protagonist is seated comfortably when the ground suddenly gives way from beneath his chair with a deafening FLUSH. The protagonist is on their own to face the circumstances and the difficulties of applying to college.

The Chalice of the Gods Book Summary
What can I say? In a word, yes! I enjoyed reading it, but I couldn’t help but feel like something was lacking from it that was present in the first five volumes. It had the feel of a lighthearted fanfiction that was a notch above the norm.
I enjoyed Percy and Grover’s discussions of youth and maturity. I liked the idea of this being the first time grover fully processed that he could lose percy forever, despite the fact that this trio has known each other for a while and had almost died a lot by this point in the novel. Percy’s acceptance of old age and death is quite true to his character and, as someone who started reading the series about the same time he did, it’s sort of nice to read. Somewhat, we came of age together.
The classic “I have a plan” and “I don’t understand the plan but I understand and trust you so we’re going with it” dynamic, Annabeth’s insistence that everything is 90% Percy’s fault, and Percy’s transformation of Annabeth’s plans into equations that aren’t scientifically accurate are some of my favourite percabeth interactions. Everything post-Tlo is a touch too sappy for me, but maybe that’s because I’m a nasty person who can’t stand to watch others happy and in love.
It bothers me that Grover wasn’t even a character in Hoo, so their friendship here reads as forced; Toa suggested there was tension between the three of them, but this book makes it seem like they hang out almost every day after school. I’m not upset about it because I’ve always wanted to learn more about their connection and Grover’s concerns about the three of them being separated by college made for some interesting moments.
For the narrative to have felt more substantial, I would have loved to see more of Grover’s possessiveness over Annabeth and Percy, as well as more scenes like the one in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Annabeth says “we were 12, percy” when they realise how long they’ve known each other. Tlo’s conclusion, in which Percy and Grover say they will remain each other’s best friends no matter what, was so satisfying that I wondered how the story could possibly end on a higher note. idk. I’m just going to throw some opinions out there about this book
