After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:
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.
Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods.

I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to listen to it. All the reviews on how bad the voice is, but I was pleasantly surprised. He is nowhere near the voices that we have learned to love from the other books, but he has his own charm. he does do voices and while he may be slower that you are used to, he is not so slow I had to up the speed. I figured I would give it a chance, all the bad reviews and it still had a good rating. definitely worth a listen!
My 7 year old son and I listened to this story over several months while traveling. We both loved it. It did take some getting used to, this was our first in the series we read. We are looking forward to going to number 1 and reding from there! We have been researching mythology now and love how the storytelling.
Yes, if they like Greek stuff and action this book starts a series that fits it.
Leo, I can relate the need to keep moving his hands and the ADHD.
His accents were spot on and weren't exaggerated.
Very much so.
I prefer Jesse's narrating over Joshua's when it comes to characters in common with the two series. but once you get used to him, he does a fantastic job of bringing the world to life
This was the best book I have ever read in my entire life # at empire state building
