Percy is confused. When he awoke from his long sleep, he didn’t know much more than his name. His brain fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight. Somehow Percy manages to make it to a camp for half-bloods. The only thing he can recall from his past is another name: Annabeth.
Hazel is supposed to be dead. When she lived before, she didn’t do a very good job of it. Sure, she was an obedient daughter, even when her mother was possessed by greed. But that was the problem—when the Voice took over her mother and commanded Hazel to use her “gift” for an evil purpose, Hazel couldn’t say no.
Frank is a klutz. His grandmother says he is descended from heroes and can be anything he wants to be, but he doesn’t see it. His bulky physique makes him feel like an ox, especially in front of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He trusts her completely—enough to share the secret he holds close to his heart.
This breathtaking second installment in the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable creatures, all destined to play a part in the Prophecy of Seven.

It's ok for the most part
Anyway, for fans who want a lot of percy in this book, I'm sure you'll be a little disappointed because it doesn't. Most of the book is about (spoiler!) Hazel and Frank.
Rick Riordan has done a great job so far in this series and I'm currently looking forward to the Mark Of Athena.
Direct message to the first review on the most helpful option: THIS IS THE SECOND BOOK IN THE SERIES!!
THE FIVE BOOKS YOU ARE REFERENCING WAS THE PERCY JACKSON & AND THE OLYMPIANS SERIES. THIS IS THE SECOND BOOK IN THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS SERIES. oh, and do you mean Gaea cuz whose Gia.
I am a big fan of Rick Riordan. The first five books were great to listen too. The sixth book was just as well written, but the reader was not nearly as good as the reader of the first five. My biggest issue was his pronunciation of many of the names. Like Gia should be (Guy-ya) not (gee-ya) and he butcherd Uranus. many of the characters he made sound like they were an Oracle. No peronality. He had some interesting voices for some characters though. He should listen to the first five and learn from that. At least that wat the listener could better blend the books together. So I give five stars to the writer and one star to the reader. so three it is.
Love Love Love his books
I read all of the Percy Jackson books and the first in this series. I started with audiobooks becasue I can listen during my work day and it has been so great. His stories are fun and interesting and the way his series tie together is just wonderful. I do have the same complaint on this one as the guy before me though, the reader for this audiobook is not very good. His mis-pronunciations are quite distracting. Gia should be pronounced (Guy-Ah) and don't get me started on his pronunciation of Cyclopses! Ugh! I do still enjoy it though.
Now if you really want to enjoy Riordan's stories AND the reading of them, try The Kane Cronicles, the readers for that series thus far are super fantastic.
