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.

If I'm not reading, I'm listening.
Somehow they got a completely different narrator and this book still came out sound exactly LIKE the Percy Jackson series.
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.
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.
Loved the story, great listen while traveling. Once again Mr Riordan does not disappoint.
Joshua Swanson does need to work on his range, but he has definitely made improvements since The Lost Hero (Book 1). Many of those passages sounded computer generated, a quality not found in this performance. Perfection would be nice, but improvement is good enough for now.
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 Wonderful Story
Everything I have been waiting years for this book to come out
His terrible character voices
The Very Very End
I have read almost all of the Rick Riordan books and this is so-far my most favorite I am excited to read the next book in this series I would recommend this book if you like action, adventure, mystery and a little bit of romance squeezed in there you HAVE TO READ IT I didn't think I would like it sea of monsters the 1st Percy Jackson book is a little bit boring like the beginning of a movie but u have to watch the first half to understand the next half
