Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents this downloadable audiobook edition, of the number one, bestselling title in this new spin-off series from Percy Jackson creator, Rick Riordan. 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?

Mispronunciation

Narrator is useless

Great book, great story but the narrator spoils it his inability to pronounce words that are an integral part of the story continually pull you out of the action . His reading style is stuttering and difficult to listen too

terrible narration

Love the book, but the narration is awful. Accent makes Leo sound like a stoner, and the narrator can't pronounce half the names properly. Very off putting. My kids could not listen to it.
