Here is a spin-off Percy Jackson story with a difference. In this book, Percy is missing but there are three new half-blood characters- Jason, Piper, and Leo- who will meet known friends of Percy. They will become a team in order to help Hera from a trap. But will these three not only be able to overcome the dark forces of giants in time but overcome their fears?
This is a first part of a new trilogy. It is helpful to read the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series to know what's happening.
Enjoyable. Different heroes who overcome their faults. Highly recommended to fans of Percy Jackson and/or Greek mythology with a modern twist. ~~ Jeffrey Lu
