For Jason waking up on bus not knowing who he was, or who the people calling him friend were, would be the beginning of a string of strange events. Soon he would find himself on a journey to a camp for demi-gods, and find that he is not only the son of Zeus, but is the son of Zeus’ Roman persona, Jupiter. This makes Jason a formidable foe against the powers that seek to destroy Hera, queen of the gods, and rise the army of giants that lived before the Greek gods existed.

It is tough enough being a teenage girl, but throw into the mix that your boyfriend doesn’t remember who you are and your mom is the goddess of love, Aphrodite, and it just makes our awkward teen years unbearable. Piper is smart, strong, independent, and has been in just about as much trouble as she can take right now. But, to save her father she must go on a quest with Jason and Leo to fight through ice, fire, air, and a whole lot more.

Leo, likes to build and he likes to fidget with gizmos and clockworks of all kinds. So flying a dragon with his best friend Jason and Piper is all too natural for him. Yet, can he trust himself, when he could save them or be the cause of their destruction. He is the first demi-god, in many years, born with the ability to control fire as his father, Hephaestus, Craftsman of Olympus and god of fire.

Now the trio must get past their problems, work together, and take the first steps in a quest that will lead them to fulfill their destiny.
