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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This one just knocked my socks off. I'm a busy person but could not wait to have time for this audio book.


    Have you listened to any of Joshua Swanson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my favorite. He really gets into character and I feel like there are 4 people narrating.

    I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.

    "Better than the 1st i"

    Enjoyed this one a little more than The Lost Hero, the first in this new series. Maybe because Percy Jackson is a familiar character. It was nice to have Percy back. Like the new heroes Frank & Hazel as well. Wish I didn't have to wait a whole year for the next one, The Mark of Athena. Maybe Annabeth will be the focus of that book - which would be really great.Once again narrator Joshua Swanson did a great job.

    "Excellent Story, Narrator has improved quite a bit"

    I really enjoyed Rick Riordan's latest installment in his 'Heroes' series. Percy, Frank and Hazel are engaging, and -- as always -- the side characters are hilarious. I believe Joshua Swanson's performance has improved a great deal since 'The Lost Hero'. In that book, there were some instances where his cadence was just seemed weird, but there's very little if any of that in this performance. His portrayal of the god Terminus also made me laugh out loud.

    Story
    "Plenty of humor"

    I think this one is the funniest out of all the books. I really laughed several times. As you can tell from the title, this book follows Percy Jackson and his two companions from the Roman Camp, Hazel and Frank.

    I like the new characters but have never been a fan of the Roman gods. I always thought the Greek gods had more personality. As always Riordan has followed what has made him successful throughout the Percy Jackson series.

    The action is good and there are some interesting bits in it, not really a twist but some new power discoveries by Percy's companions. I didn't give it a 5 manly because of the Narrator. This story leaves you hanging at the end with the prophecy of seven getting ready to come to fulfillment.

    If you like the Percy Jackson series, you will like this book as well. I found it very enjoyable.
