Synopsis

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.

Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.

Join new and old friends from Camp Half-Blood in this thrilling first book in The Heroes of Olympus series.

About the Author

Richard Russell "Rick" Riordan, is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and former teacher of English and History. His career started with teaching in various schools in Texas, after earning h I s double major from the University of Texas at Austin. His favorite subject that he taught in almost every class was Mythology, since he enjoyed it and most students really enjoyed it.

Twentieth Century Fox purchased the rights to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and released a full feature film in February of 2010.
