Okay, so this book is about a kid named Jason, appearing suddenly on a bus going on a field trip.  When the teacher gets taken by Venti, or storm spirits, Annabeth and a friend come and take Jason and his new friends, Piper and Leo, (Oh, another thing, Jason has amnesia and cannot remember where he came from or who he is) to Camp Half-Blood.  When Jason gets a vision o Juno, or Hera, telling him to free her, the three kids must go on a quest.  They must free Hera and face many, many monsters.  Jason gets lots of surprises along the way, including what his last name is.  If you read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, you will know what that means.  Okay, I will give you a hint, he has a well known sister.

This book was amazing.  It had a few typos but otherwise it was awesome.  I loved the switch with the Roman gods and the Roman camp half-blood.  My favorite character was Leo Valdez because he tamed the dragon Festus when no one else could.
