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.

    "Spoiler alert"

    The story was great if you read the other books. But if you didn't, it would probably be confusing.
    My favorite part was when the beat the giant.

    "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.

    Story
    "Fantastic"
    Would you listen to The Son of Neptune again? Why?

    My family loves the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus stories. They are full of excitement and have helped my children develop a love of reading. We will definitely listen to this story again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story helps children develop an interest in mythology and an interest in researching to find out more. In my opinion anything that helps children gain an interest in thinking and wanting to learn more is a WIN!!


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

    Joshua Swanson is a wonderful reader. My kiddos really like the voice that he brings for Hazel and Frank's Grandmother.

    "Natural, engaging performance with great story"

    Josh Swanson's performance in the Heroes of Olympus series is fantastic. Very natural without being stilted or overacted. The performances brings Riordan's brilliant storytelling to life. These audiobooks don't conflict with the way I pictured and "heard" the story while reading the books and make hours in the car for vacation travel fly by this summer. I wish the rest of the series and Riordan's books lived up to Swanson's versions!

    "Hate the reader"
    Where does The Son of Neptune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Down the list


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joshua Swanson’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The story is a good Riordan book but the reader is horrible! I want to complete the series so I'm still listening. But the readers from the Kane Chronicles were way better.
