The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

In this sequel to The Lost Hero, readers finally find out what happened to the missing Percy Jackson. Not only is his memory gone, but he has been dropped in the middle of a possibly hostile Roman camp. He meets two new friends: Hazel and Frank, both of whom have secretes they would rather no one found out...ever.

As the war against the Earth goddess, Gaea, becomes more present and pronounced it is clear that these three unlikely heroes must work together to prove themselves and to fight for what is right. With the Prophecy of Seven looming overhead, will Hazel, Frank, and Percy prove that they are three of the heroes mentioned? Is this "other" camp a safe haven that Percy has always dreamed of? Or is it too good to be true?

The continuation of Percy's story will give readers the plot and depth they were hoping for. It leaves more questions than answers and readers will flip through the pages to find out what will happen next. If readers thought Capture the Flag was dangerous, wait until the see the Roman equivalent. Readers young and old will laugh out loud as Riordan works his humorous magic.
