Title: The Son of Neptune
Author: Rick Riordan
After some days of running away from 2 Gorgons in the beginning of the book Percy is with no memory except his girlfriend Annabeth and the fact that he can’t kill the 2 Gorgons. He stumbles upon a Roman camp called Camp Jupiter. Percy who’s still followed by the Gorgons uses his powers as the son of Neptune (the god of water and earthquakes) to destroy the Gorgons (temporarily) and save the guard Frank. He meets there Reyna, the daughter of Bellona the female god of war and one of the two camp leaders, Hazel, the daughter of Pluto (the god of the underworld), Frank, an unclaimed demigod, and Nico di Angelo, son of Pluto. Percy, Hazel, and Frank find out that the reason the monsters won’t die is that Thanatos the god of death (not the underworld) is imprisoned. So the camp elects of course Percy, Hazel, and Frank to go to free Thanatos. The catch is that the camp is at San Francisco and Thanatos is in Alaska, and to make harder they have to make it back before the Feast of FORTUNA which is in 4days! On the journey you’ll see the secrets of the three characters are revealed to one another as they go to free Thanatos. With so many obstacles will the trio succeed?
