Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.

Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.

Join new and old friends from Camp Half-Blood in this thrilling first book in The Heroes of Olympus series. Download and start listening now!

    " another good demigod story. lots of action and adventure, open to many sequels. each chapter was written from a different demigod's perspective which made the story go quickly. it ties it nicely with the percy jackson series as well was the demigod files. "

    " This book is a really good one to read if you like to read about mythology. This book is narrarated by three demigods named Jason,Piper, and Leo. Jason woke up on a school bus from Wilderness camp with Piper holding his hand and he didnt know how he got there or who he was but, when they are doing a worksheet for a class at the Grand Cayon Some storm spirts come and try to take those three and the Coach to a secret place. When someone comes from camp halfblood they get to know who their other parent is. Leo is clamed first but i wont spoil who it is! Leo is in charge of transportaion to fly them half way across the contrey from Mannhatten to Oregon. On the way the run into alot of monsters, evil people and some wearwolfs. Jason finds his sister who is Thalia Grace and finally starts to realize who he is. They battle a giant who wants to destroy the whole world and to rip up the gods from their ancient roots which is in Greece. When they travle to the old wolf house and delay the rise of the Giant king. Jason, Leo, Piper, and the Hunters releas the Queen of the gods, Hera, Jason finds out that he is the son of Jupiter, the King of the god from the Roman sides and Annabeth who save Jason and the others boyfriend Percy Jackson is at Camp Jupiter. An exchange, which was a high price for Hera to pay. if you would like to read the rest of the books look for the son of Neptune, and the newest on Mark of Athena and read them. Thank you for reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Malike Crawford | 2/1/2014

    " Well to start the book is not a killer book but it is very good. My favorite character is Gleeson Hedge. I love the way he's so funny and always yelling. I also like leo because he is somewhat like me always the 3rd wheel and never gets attention. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tanzeel | 1/26/2014

    " my least favorite book in percy Jackson universe I finished first series in mere 5 days but I don't wanna read this book It's nothing in comparison with older ones Jason is not a strong character neither the others and without Percy its like James bond movie without 007 so thumbs down I'm utterly disappointed by this one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitchell Hale | 1/25/2014

    " I thought the book was good. I like mysterious books and this book had a good mystery about it. I was curious about what was going to happen next, and how it would end. It also had young teenagers doing everything they can to find their missing friends,protect the people they care about, stop the world's worst enemy from rising from their many year slumber, protect everyone on the planet, and became heroes in the process.This story will introduce you to something you've never seen before. Read this book, and exprience the adventure unlike anything else. "

    " Of course this book is in the same vein as the Percy Jackson books, but I think I liked it even better. The characters are a little older than Percy was when his books started, so they're a little deeper. Such a fun read. "
