After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

I listened to this on audiobook which was amazing!  I liked the reader from Percy Jackson and the Olympians (Jesse Bernstein) better, and I wish he had done this one, too.  But this reader, Joshua Swanson, was pretty good.  He did different voices for all of the characters.  He was an American reader.  Sometimes I like listening to the audio better because I can get through it better, and I can listen to it when I'm going to bed.  Plus, it helps me to know how to pronounce all the names!

Yes, I know the author is Rick Riordan. That's why the title says The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. I was talking about the READERS of the audiobooks, who were Jesse Bernstein for Percy Jackson, and Joshua Swanson for The Lost Hero. If you don't know what audiobooks are, they are when an actor reads the book on CD or playaway and you can listen to them instead of reading them. They're awesome, you should check them out!

If I mispronounced something, it is because that is how the readers pronounced the names on the audiobooks. They are given pronunciation keys to use while they read, so I guess that's how Rick Riordan wants the names pronounced.

Thanks for the comment!
