The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Release Date: 10/12/2010
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 553

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he’s in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn’t recognize her, and 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. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. 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.

And I never thought anything could live up to Percy Jackson. Well guess what, I think this is my new favourite. Rick Riordan is just so good at making this whole world of half-bloods so real! It's fantastic! There isn't enough time in the world to tell you all how much I loved this book! It was SO EPIC!! I'm going to try and keep my cool, but right now all I feel like is gushing about how "totally awesome" the story is... Well, lets get started. Shall we?

In The Lost Hero there are a whole new group of half-bloods, a whole new prophecy, and a whole new adventure. When I first picked this up I was afraid that it was going to be Percy Jackson 2.0, but it's definitely a whole different story, one I arguably like better.

Why you ask? Well, if you have read Percy Jackson then you know your basic knowledge of Greek gods and goddesses... (especially if you are a dork like me and have the Percy Jackson Greek mythology flashcards) but, in The Lost Hero you learn not only about Greek mythology but also Roman mythology. I would love to gush about the cool plot, but I don't want to give anything away! But it's cool, trust me.

Finally, the writing. Rick Riordan's writing blows me away, the way that he can make this world seem so real. I've always wanted to be a half-blood... I haven't been attacked by monsters yet, so sadly I'm thinking of switching that dream to something else... *sigh*

Overall, this book was fantabulous! If you haven't go pick it up!

  1. The kind of practical problems you face while buying furniture is different from the world of modern bedroom furniture and suites that you see on
    online furniture stores. A close "relative" of this style is
    Unexpected-Anything goes (. The feature of relaxation is the most important aspect to any individual.

  2. Payment can be made at scheduled increments, at certain
    milestones, or involve deposits from time to time that cover the
    materials cost before the work is started.
    In terms of furniture, chaise-longues, bureaus and winged armchairs are Georgian staples.
    Colour and patterns of furniture are also important considerations.
