Publisher's Summary

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.

Listen to An Interview with Rick Riordan.

    "Highly recommend both Percy Jackson series"

    These books are so well done! They have engaging characters interwoven into modern versions of ancient myths & morality tales. I recommend them highly. Kids/teens will identify with the characters, learning by accident. (Too bad they really, really messed up the movies.)

    The author did a good job of wrapping up the many plot lines without making it seem contrived or rushed. The characters have to examine what is the honorable, right, fair, just, honest, & loyal thing to do as they complete their adventures with humor and derring-do. They form close friendships & learn about themselves.

    This is the first book of the second series, and it will be much more fun if you read/listen to the first series before starting this one. Other than that, have fun!

    "Great book to listen to with the kids!"

    My 11 and 9 year old sons were just as eager to get back to this book as I was... It started out as listening on rides to school.... Ended up pushing bed time out to sit around the iPad! Fun book we are progressing nicely with son of Neptune

    Story
    "Distracting Narrator"
    Would you try another book from Rick Riordan and/or Joshua Swanson?

    Riordan, of course! Swanson? Absolutely not.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I've always been fan of Annabeth. I like smart and strong women characters.


    What didn’t you like about Joshua Swanson’s performance?

    His voice didn't fit the characters, and his general performance was poor. He would apply random accents to characters. Those accents weren't part of the characterizations in the books, and were often temporary. Also, they were typically off base because they were such poor accents. He also mispronounced a few words which was annoying and distracting. I couldn't even get through the whole reading.


    Do you think The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It has a follow-up book.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't listen to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, so some of the other reviews that said people just didn't like that this was a "new" narrator from that series are flawed. The narrator just did a poor job. I would recommend reading the book over this recording any day.
