OMG!!!! You haven't lived until you've read this book!!!!!!!!! It is a perfect blend between the original Percy Jackson books and the new Heroes of Olympus series. This book is about Percy Jackson being sent to Camp Jupiter by Lupa the Wolf without retaining any of his memories...... except a little bit of Annabeth of course ;)........Camp Jupiter is the Roman demigod camp. At Camp Jupiter, Percy meets Hazel and Frank who both bear curses. Hazel's curse is due to the fact that she is the daughter of Pluto/Hades....I won't tell you what it is, though. Frank's curse is more like a death sentence ... his life depends on a half-burned piece of wood. This story is about their adventure to unleash Death A.K.A Thantoes from his prison which is gaurded by Gaea's eldest son, a giant, Alcyoneus......... in Alaska, which is out of the gods' sphere of power. So during their quest they have no chance of godly help, they are on their own.
I recommend this book to anyone who loved the first PJ series, who love Greek/Roman mythology, and Rick Riordan books!!!
I rate this book 4 1/2 chocolate bars
Appropriateness: Vampire, for mild violence
Cover Thoughts: It seems really dramatic, but yet it represents the book well even though it's not a scene in the book.
BTW!!!!!!!!!! Keep an eye out for the next Heroes of Olympus book Mark of Athena!!
