Exit the Greek pantheon of gods and Camp Half-Blood. Enter the Roman pantheon and Camp Jupiter. In Rick Riordan’s second series about demigod Percy Jackson, Percy teams up with new pals Frank and Hazel and embarks upon new quests, not the least of which is releasing Death from the world of giants. Unflappable Joshua Swanson narrates with aplomb. His brisk delivery moves the fast-paced adventure along. In delivering the dialogue, he distinguishes each of the three main characters and gives unique voices to the myriad of supporting ones. Swanson’s matter-of-fact and speedy treatment of Riordan’s humor, wordplay, and cultural juxtaposition brings such delight that one wants to replay each one to enjoy again. Such an engaging recording! A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2011]
