Heroes of Olympus The son of Neptune:
The Son of Neptune opens with Percy Jackson being chased by two of the gorgons. While making his escape, he runs into an old woman named June. She reveals herself to be Juno (Hera) and gives him a choice: provide her a favor or run away. As the favor, Percy carries her across the Little Tiber, which is a powerful river. In doing so he loses his invincibility from the River Styx. When he reaches his destination he meets Hazel Levesque, a daughter of Pluto, and Frank Zhang, a son of Mars. Percy saves Frank from the Gorgons by drowning them. Percy is taken into the camp after Juno introduces him to Camp Jupiter.
During war games, a Camp Jupiter activity, Percy impresses everyone by his battle skills and instincts, though they are not Roman tactics at all and are more Greek-like. After the games, one of the Fifth Cohort's leaders was found severely injured and dies. A few moments later, she comes back alive. Mars, the god of war, then appears and informs the campers that "death has lost its grip." He also claims Frank Zhang as his son. Mars insists that Percy and Frank must go on a quest to free Thanatos, god of Death. He has been captured and is no longer able to keep mortals dead. Frank requests that Hazel also come on the quest and they set off toward Alaska. While traveling, Percy struggles to regain his memory. Time and time, he recalls things that he remembers but he never knows from where. The only clear memory to him is a girl named Annabeth. Hazel reveals that she had died long ago, but that Nico di Angelo, son of Hades and therefore her half - brother, saved her from the Underworld. Frank informs the other two, that he was given a piece of wood that is tied to his life; if the wood burns up completely, he will die. Many events and monsters, such as basilisks, giants, and an unexpected meeting with the Amazons, pass until they finally get to Alaska, where they find Thanatos in chains. His chains may only be broken by the piece of wood tied to Frank's lifesource. Percy defends Frank while he melts Thanatos' chains with his burning stick, losing more and more of his life. Hazel attacks Alcyoneus, the giant born to oppose Pluto. Thanatos is eventually freed. With the help of Hazel's horse, Arion, they drag the giant out of its land (Alaska) to Canada where it is able to be killed.
Percy regains his memory as they race back to Camp Jupiter. Knowing that the camp is under attack, Percy takes charge and leads the Romans into battle with the help of some of his old friends from Camp Half-Blood and the Amazons. The morale of the Romans is recharged after discovering that Percy recovered the camp's lost standard, which had been missing for years. Percy then challenges the giant, Polybotes, to a duel and calls to Terminus, the Roman border god, to help him defeat the giant. He has been told that only when gods and demigods work together can the giants be defeated. Percy eventually defeats Polybotes by using the head of Terminus' statue as a weapon. The camp then named him a praetor, a leader of the Roman camp. The Greek demigods from Camp Half-Blood appear in the Argo II flying towards the camp. The Romans argue over attacking the ship. As praetor, Percy orders them to hold their fire. If the Greeks attack, he would be to blame, but he is not worried. Putting his arms around Frank and Hazel, he approaches his "other family".
