About the book: 
Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in  their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother,  Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them - and they're stronger than ever. 
 
The gods, still  suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of  young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As  dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have  sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over . . .

About the Author

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
