Summary

More
When they're attacked by strange monsters during a field trip to the Grand Canyon, Jason, Piper, and Leo are rescued by some of Percy Jackson's pals and taken to Camp Half-Blood.

There, the teens discover the truth—they're demigods! But unlike the other campers, who have Greek gods and goddesses for parents, Jason, Piper, and Leo have Roman gods and goddesses for parents!

Now the three are learning about their unique demigod abilities—and facing a deadly prophecy. It turns out that the goddess Hera has been kidnapped and it's up to these new demigods to save her!

About this Series

A prophecy has decreed that seven demigods—half mortal, half god—will defend the world from the earth goddess Gaia, who is out for revenge against the Olympian gods. But there's a catch: some of the demigods are Greek and some are Roman—and these two groups are longtime enemies. They'll have to unite to put a stop to Gaia and her army of giants and monsters!

Bringing the teen heroes of Percy Jackson & the Olympians together with a whole new cast of characters, author Rick Riordan has created an outstandingly fun adventure deeply rooted in mythology that will satisfy both longtime fans and new readers. Combining nonstop action with the unmatched drama of the gods, the books will have readers racing to turn the pages—and seeking out the original stories.
