The Lost Hero ( #1 of the Heros of Olympus)

Title: The Lost Hero
Author: Rick Riordan
Release date: October 3rd, 2010
Rating: 5/5
Publisher: Disney/Hyperbion
Book Summary:
Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?  
Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.
Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.

Review:
 
Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,  
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

*fan girl squeal* I finally was able to read it! Oh my gosh it was so good! Rick Riordan's books are by far my favorites in Middle Grade!
 
So, if you haven't read The Lightning Theif and the rest of the books of the Percy Jackson series then do not DARE pick up this book. The Percy Jackson books are like a Pre-Series to this series. You need to read those if you are to get anything Annabeth says. I'm telling you READ THEM.
 
*cough* Anyway, Riordan has brought another new twist on the old Greek mythology, but there has been an addition. Roman mythology is now intertwined into the Heros of Olympus!
 
Jason, suddenly appears in the boarding school with a girlfriend he never knew he had, Piper,  and a best friend, Leo. Their adventure starts when the venti attack and Coach Hedge must defend them (which failed epically even though Hedge is kick a--!) so two memebers of CHB came and saved all of them.
 
In Camp Half-Blood Percy has been missing and Annabeth has been searching for days to find him. Jason has this strange thing that he talks about the Greek Gods in their Roman form. Interesting.

I'm super excited for his the sequel to his series (whose book title I'm not revealing for those who haven't read it) coming out August 2011 and the sequel to the Kane Chronicles which comes out May 3, 2011.

Overall: Amazing. Good plot. Nice workings. Character build up. Cliffhanger.

  1. Wow, sounds like a good read. I've been stalling on this one because I was afraid it might not be as good as the earlier books. :-)
