From the Publisher
Percy is confused. When he awoke after 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 managed to make it to the camp
for half-bloods, despite the fact that he had to continually kill
monsters that, annoyingly, would not stay dead. But the camp
doesn''t ring any bells with him.
Hazel is supposed to
be dead. When she lived before, she didn''t do a very good
job of it. When the Voice took over her mother and commanded Hazel
to use her "gift" for an evil purpose, Hazel couldn''t say no. Now,
because of her mistake, the future of the world is at risk.
Frank is a
klutz. His grandmother claims he is descended from ancient
heroes, but he doesn''t even know who his father is. He keeps
hoping Apollo will claim him, because the only thing he is good at
is archery. His big and bulky physique makes him feel like a clumsy
ox, especially in front of Hazel, his closest friend at camp. He
trusts her completely-enough, even, to share the secret he holds
close to his heart.
Beginning at the "other" camp for half-bloods and extending as far
north as the land beyond the gods, this breathtaking second
installment in the Heroes of Olympus series introduces new
demigods, revives fearsome monsters, and features other remarkable
creatures, all of whom are destined to play a part in the most
important quest of all: the Prophecy of Seven.
