Publisher's Summary

In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a quest:

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.

Who are the other four mentioned in the prophesy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea.

Also listen to the first book, The Lost Hero.

    "My son loved it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! My son could not put it down. He needed to read it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My son chose to listen to it over playing Xbox! I see that as a victory for a good story! He's already listening to the next book!


    What about Joshua Swanson’s performance did you like?

    My son is an audible learner. He has tried to listen to stories read by other people and he by far has enjoyed the voice and pace at which this story is read.

    Story
    "Another Good Percy Jackson Read"

    Rick Riordan has written another great installment in the Percy Jackson saga. I liked the new characters that he introduced, and I liked the returning characters I already knew. I am looking forward to see how the two camps of demigods work together.

    Story
    "Loved this book."

    Just finished listening to it 2 days ago and loved it. I was a bit disappointed he left out something I wanted to catch the camps reaction through instead skipping the reaction and and starting right on the argument. And still don't like the narrator, but could be worse, they could have used Sam Tsoutsouvas still can't stand to even listen to his narration. And I think this book was much better than the first of the series. I was getting worried near the end that he just gave up advancing Percy and it was just going to be about the other character surprising skills.

    I can't wait for the next book. I hope this time we get Annabeth's point of view. It is looking like she might be the seventh but it is hard to tell, I hope so. It also seems like Gaea may use her to blackmail Percy or something like that.

    Story
    "Really Good but can't be great"

    A big issue with audio books is that when you have a book that isn't in first person and only one reader it tends to not work on it's own without the book to read along. Actors like Swanson don't have much range in voicing so many of the characters sound like the same ones from the first book.

    Outside of that the story is solid if only a little disappointing since my expectations were too high, and Swanson does well enough to make it worth the use of a credit, though I don't reccomend it to anyone who isn't a member getting at least a reduced price since this audio book isn't worth over 30 dollars.

    "The Roman Camp"

    Jason now knows where Percy must be. We join Percy in making his way down to the Roman camp. ITS HUGE full of families and they still dress roman. The Romans have traditions and though most are similar they are very different. Percy makes new friends and there is a face he knows but he is not sure how. its driving him nuts.

    Story
    "Really great, kept me entertained"
    What made the experience of listening to The Son of Neptune the most enjoyable?

    The way the Narrator kept me entertained. He was able to change his voice enough to help me understand who was saying what in the story, which made the listen very enjoyable, and understandable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Mythology, and anything that resembles it as well. It gives us a glimpse of the past, and throws in fantasy to make it interesting. Stories like this are the only books that interest me, and the truth is, this is the first book I have made it through in years.


    What does Joshua Swanson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Like I mentioned in my first answer, he makes the book come alive in a sense. It had multiple voiced characters, and he showed emotion in his voices. He done great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A couple laughs for sure, and a lot of me wanting to know more. I am so glad I have the second book, and going to complete it within the next couple weeks.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great site, I hated reading, mainly because my eyes are not the greatest, and I usually get some blurring after a few minutes of reading. This site enables me to enjoy books in a way that is comfortable, and easy for me. Great site, great app, and great narrators.
