After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:
Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

I was impressed that the author went for a different style with his new series. I honestly didn't like the story from three perspectives as much (the new style). But it's nice to see something different. It is also nice to have different gods involved so we can see more of "the world" of these books. This seems more targeted towards the teens with there being more love interest material. The ending makes it clear that things will be expanding for the series which hopefully means more interesting additions. I would rate this book about as good as Lightning Thief, Sea of Monsters, etc. Not as good as Battle for the Labyrinth or Last Olympian. I will add my voice to the complaint that this narrator isn't nearly as good as Jesse from the first series. Still tolerable, though.
This was my first purchase on audible and both halves of the book downloaded start with chapter 26! I haven't found an easy way to let audible know about this error. Cheaper than my usual purchases on itunes but getting what I paid for... less.
