Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world. Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon's Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She'll just need a little help from her "friends." In their quest for the Dragon's Eye, these four kids begin to realize that being good ain't so bad.

After a summer of fighting crime as Gilded, the world’s only superhero, Miles Taylor is bummed to learn that nothing has changed for him at school. He is still the target of the Jammer’s bullying. And Josie has put him squarely in the friend zone. Miles starts spending more time as Gilded, neglecting his schoolwork and his friends. His attitude lands him and his friend in a military compound, at the mercy of the power-crazed General Breckenridge. When the general steals the golden cape, Miles finds himself with no superpowers…and no hope of escape. On the verge of losing everything he cares about, Miles must discover the hero within himself before the general puts his evil plans into action.

Percy is confused. When he awoke after his long sleep, he didn't know much more than his name. His brain-fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight. Somehow Percy manages to make it to the camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he had to continually kill monsters that, annoyingly, would not stay dead. But the camp doesn't ring any bells with him.

Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea --- except that everything seems very wrong. Piper has a secret.

When a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on? Leo has a way with tools. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all --- including Leo --- related to a god.
