The Lost Hero
Jason, Piper, and Leo are the newest batch of demigods in the book. Jason Grace, who can't remember who he is. Piper McLean whose famous father has disappeared. And Leo Valdez, who is the only one able to tame a wild robotic dragon and name it Festus. Their first dose of monsters and demigods is on their school field trip to The Grand Canyon, when Coach Hedge, their cruel gym teacher, dies to save them from evil wind creatures. They are then whisked off to Camp Half-Blood, where only Leo really feels comfortable.
But they've only just arrived when they're off again on a quest to save the goddess Hera. In the four days before the winter solstice, they encounter the gods of wind, the dead reawakened, and the giant Enceladus. The cliffhanger chapter ends keep you reading, and certainly send you back to the library for the next book in the series. Oh wait, I already have it! I guess I have no choice but to go read The Son of Neptune...
