    This book is about Percy, Frank, and Hazel, on a quest to free "Death." The Earth Mother Gaia is rising and the least Percy and his friends can do it slow it down. I loved this book

      Exhausted and weary, riddled with memory loss, Percy Jackson staggers through rocky landscape pursued by the Gorgons. He's too disoriented even to argue when he must carry an old lady through a river to a supposed haven, despite it meaning that he will lose invincibility; anything to escape danger, right? But when Percy drags his feet over the line of Camp Jupiter, he realizes that his dangerous days are far from over. After wearisome days of earning the Roman demigod camp's trust, Percy's weakness—or strength?—for being the hero shows when he volunteers to travel to the forbidden land of Alaska to rescue Thanatos, the god of death. Fellow underdog campers Frank Zhang and Hazel Levesque choose to accompany him. But when their already risky quest proves to be a much more threatening situation than anyone foresaw, Percy must prove that he is not only the son of Poseidon but the son of Neptune. Thrillingly adventurous, this novel will captivate readers to the very last word.

        Percy Jackson does not remember anything, except one memory of someone named Annabeth. He is stuck trying to keep fighting monsters who are angry with him. For what reason, he cannot remember. However, they are unable to harm him for some reason. He finds his way to Camp Jupiter, where his fate awaits him. He gets a message from Annabeth telling him to stay where he is, but he must go on a quest. Overall, I thought this book was interesting. I recommend this book to people who enjoyed the Percy Jackson series, or people who like reading about greek mythology. I rate this 5/5.

                Rick Riordan is back at it again with his amazing storytelling skills! Continuing on from the first book, we get a look at what’s happening on the other side of the country in California, where Percy Jackson has lost his memory and has nowhere to go. There, he stumbles upon the Romans and unexpectedly receives a dangerous quest that he must complete in a week in order to restore order to New Rome. Will he manage to finish it? I loved this book so much because Percy, Hazel, and Frank are such great characters that face a lot of dangers, which is so exciting! This book has a lot of action, drama, laughs, pretty much everything!

                      This book honestly was heaven . Percy is back but lost his memory and only remembers one thing:Annabeth, his girlfriend. He arrives at Camp Jupiter and meets Frank and Hazel, with whom he goes on a quest to unchain Thanatos ,the gods of death...A truly exiting book that brings our favourite heroes a step closer to the Great Prophecy.
