This narrator is perfect for this series, just as Jesse Bernstein was perfect for the Percy Jackson series. He does a great job with the different characters, making them come alive. The story line is a nice transition from the adolescents of the Percy Jackson series to young adults in Heroes of Olympus. The story line from the Percy Jackson series is continued in the series Heroes of Olympus. New characters are introduced adding to the characters from Percy Jackson.
Great Book! Would Highly Recommend!

I purchased this book expecting Johanna Ward to be the narrator - as it is stated. In fact, Kate Reading is the narrator - had I known this I would NOT have purchased this book. The story is only mediocre and the narrator is irritating. Don't waste your time with this book
