Shout Out: Heroes of Olympus

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 who must embark on a terrifying new quest, which must be completed 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?

This enormously successful series by Rick Riordan combines high adventure and intrigue with the ancient world in a fast-paced series of blockbusters featuring Rick Riordan's dynamic lead, PercyJackson.
