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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great Story, and an improved performance"

    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.

    "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.

    "Percy Jackson Best Series Ever!"

    Every aspect of this book is great, and that's not just because I love the series. The Percy Jackson books are the best books ever written in my opinion, because of how the author tells the story, and he makes me feel connected to the characters and events that take place in the series. I like the Son of Neptune in particularly, because of how the author made it seem like the characters actually cared for each other. He also lets you think that the different characters have the right powers for who they are, but that those powers have limits. I like how sometimes they discover their new powers by accident. In the Son of Neptune, that you find a Classic Character named Percy Jackson, who you already know about and like from the previous books, you learn about his back story of how he lost his memory at the same time as the character's in the book do. Percy Jackson fan, age 11.
