This was such a fun book! This is the second book in the Heros of Olympus series where we find out what happened to Percy Jackson when Juno removed him from Camp Half Blood. Percy has no idea about his past and find himself in a Roman camp with new friends and a new quest. So much information is covered in such fun ways. We learn all about the differences and similarities between the Greek and Roman Gods and why the changes came about. How the differences in civilization actually changed the personalities of the Gods and not only their names. There is also an underlying theme that is so relevent in this day and age and that is the unfairness of war and what it means to sacrifice for what is important. So many kids today have lost their parents to war the loss of Frank's mother and his home is something that they can relate to. Using humor Rick Riordan strikes a perfect balance between these subjects. This was an awesome book full of great characters and lots of hilarious scenes. I can hardly wait for the story to continue with the next book.
