        I love it! The way Rick Riordan Continues to combine different series with the same characters is amazing. I have gotten so much inspiration from his books. It is full of excitement and will keep you reading until your arm is tired. :)

          Have you ever wondered if there was another camp just like Camp Half Blood? Let me tell you, there is! It's, well, just a tad bit different, ok ok, there's a big difference. The other camp is a Roman camp with different fighting techniques, same Gods with different names and personalities (I know, its confusing at first), a mess hall, and a whole lot of other differences! Percy Jackson lost his memory and finds himself at Camp Jupiter. He meets Hazel and Frank and they are soon called to go on a mission. Time is of the essence, will Percy, Frank, and Hazel complete the mission or will they fail?

                The Son of Neptune is another great book added into the series "The Heroes of Olympus". In this story, the all-time famous demigod to both good and evil, Percy Jackson is back! He was sent to a Roman camp, specifically Camp Jupiter with his memory erased. He doesn't know what happened, but for all he knows, monsters can't die. Unless Death (Thanatos) is released from his Prison, people and monster will not die, and even come back to the living world and try to cause trouble. Gaea and her minions captured Thanatos, and decided to attack the camp, knowing that monsters won't die until Death is released. Percy Jackson decides to go on a quest without much support, with 2 other friends he made during his limited time at Camp Jupiter. Those two friends were Frank Zhang and Hazel Levesque, will play a crucial role in saving the world in other books in the series. Whether through magical spears and magical abilities, the group of 3 endures many troubles to release death..

                    A perfect mix of drama, action, comic relief, and humor. An exhausted, and memory wiped Percy Jackson (Son of Poseidon, the god of the sea) arrives at a mysterious place called Camp Jupiter. Frank Zhang (Chinese demigod who has neither ADHD or Dyslexia so is somewhat insecure.) and Hazel Levesque (Daughter of Pluto. AKA Hades, god of the underworld. Was once dead.) decide to help Percy gain his memory back, and they help in through thick and thin, like battles, and on a journey to find the Door Of Death. Rick Riordan is a genius. Every time I turned the page, I was on the edge of my seat. It's great for 3rd grade to 8th grade readers!
