it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, ya-lit

Rick Riordan does it again!! Another heart stopping series surrounding greek mythology! Percy Jackson is missing, and the campers at Camp Half Blood are floundering. Annabeth is on a search for him with the help of Artemis's huntress leader, Thalia. This time, the reader meets 3 new demigods. Jason woke up on a bus and has no idea who he is or where he came from. His memory ever so slowly returns as the book progresses. Piper has been sent to The Wilderness school because she is a kleptomaniac-only she doesn't really mean to steal things. She has the ability to talk anyone into anything. Leo has no one in his life, and has run away from every foster home he has ever been in. He is great with machinery, and feels completely alone in the world. All three are thrown together, and somehow find themselves at Camp Half-Blood, and on a quest to save the queen of the gods-AND Pipers father!! Quite a ride, and all within a 2 day time span.
The characters you fell in love with in Riordan's first series certainly play a periphery role, but somehow you know that they will come back into the story at some point. A great read!! In my opinion, Riordan can do no wrong in ya-lit! He forms characters that make the reader care about ancient greek (and roman) mythology in his series! Really, really great!!
