After reading the whole Percy Jackson series of books and enjoying them tremendously, I decided to buy this book by Rick Riordan just a few weeks after it came out, and boy was I impressed! This book is different because new characters are introduced, the main one being Jason and his two other teammates Piper and Leo, who have numerous adventures and death-defying cliff-hangers throughout the book. In this book Percy Jackson is never seen, but he's still important because he's missing and is being searched for by all of his friends from the earlier series. This book has a very interesting twist in how Jason and Percy are connected.

Great adventure reading that also educates about history for either a kid or an adult! I am really looking forward to reading the second book in the series, "The Son of Neptune" coming out in the fall of 2011!
