Jason has no idea who or where he is. All he knows is that he is on a bus holding hands with a girl he has never met and listening to a boy he has never met complain about their field trip. His memories are gone and no one will believe that he has no idea who they are or why he's suddenly on a field trip at the Grand Canyon. The next thing he knows, he is being attacked by storm spirits and his battle instincts kick in. Once the venti have left, Jason is only more confused. Before he can answer anything Piper or Leo are asking, two people leading a chariot of pegasi are flying right for them. Annabeth and Butch claim the other three have answers and that they were taking them where they could better discuss it.
Once they reach Camp Half-Blood, they discover that they are children of the gods of Olympus, otherwise known as demi-gods. Leo, a son of Hephaestus; Piper, a daughter of Aphrodite; Jason, a son of Jupiter. Questions pile up, but no answers are given. All they know is that at the exact moment Jason lost his memories, Percy Jackson disappeared and that something is linking the two incidents. Not only that, but the great prophecy that was made at the end of the Titan War only months before has already been put into motion. It is up to Jason, Leo and Piper to figure out how to put the demigods can end the threat and how to get Jason's memories back on a quest to save Hera.

This is what I love about Rick Riordan. He's engaging and hilarious, heartfelt and intelligent. I have learned so much about mythology through his books and I didn't even know it. This was such an amazing read. I could not put this down. And that's saying something for a book containing 553 pages of Greek and Roman myth. I thought it was really neat for him to bring in the Roman mythology and show how it differs slightly from the Greek. It was exciting.
I had no idea that this book picked up just months after the ending of The Last Olympian (finale of the Percy Jackson series). It made the book even better than it already was because, well....I absolutely LOVE Percy Jackson. You don't necessarily NEED to read the Percy Jackson series in order to understand this series, but I would definitely recommend you doing so. They were great, quick reads, really smart and funny. Read THIS for the continuation series.
