OLD ENEMIES AWAKEN AS CAMP HALF-BLOOD’S NEW ARRIVALS PREPARE FOR WAR

When Jason, Piper and Leo crash land at Camp Half-Blood, they have no idea what to expect. Apparently this is the only safe place for children of the Greek Gods – despite the monsters roaming the woods and demigods practising archery with flaming arrows and explosives. But rumours of a terrible curse – and a missing hero – are flying around camp. It seems Jason, Piper and Leo are the chosen ones to embark on a terrifying new quest, which they must complete by the winter solstice. In just four days time. Can the trio succeed on this deadly mission – and what must they sacrifice in order to survive?

Like a lot of others, I was apprehensive about this series because the Percy Jackson series is one of my favourites. I need not have worded. This is a fantastic start to the series! The new characters are great and the reappearance of a few old favourites is great. The action scenes are wonderful, as usual Rick Riordan’s writing is fluid and intriguing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to continue with the series!
