This is the first book in the second series that follows Riordan's 'Percy Jackson' characters. This book introduces some new characters and a whole new set of problems. Instead of facing war against the titan's the half-bloods are threatened by an even stronger enemy. Fans of Percy Jackson will be easily captivated by this story and the rest of the books in the 'Heroes of Olympus' series.

This is the first book in my favorite series of all time. I've read it at least 30 times, and I'm STILL not tired of it! It's action-packed, full of cute couples, awesome friends, and exciting twists! Don't miss the next 4 books in the series! (The Son of Neptune, The Mark of Athena (personally my favorite), The House of Hades, and The Blood of Olympus) Also, don't forget to read Percy Jackson and the Olympians FIRST before reading The Heros of Olympus. And don't miss out on Rick Riordan's other books!

this book was exciting, I can't wait to finish the whole series even! It includes romance, adventure, fun, funny, scary, and a whole lot more! I would recommend this book to anyone if I have to. It was almost the best series I've read!

"The Lost Hero" is an amazing book. It is filled with plenty of humour and loads of suspense as a multitude of new characters are introduced. In this book, Rick Riordan has successfully created another jaw-dropping cliff-hanger ending to leave any Percy Jackson fans stunned. "The Lost Hero" is written from the perspective of three new characters, Jason, Piper and Leo giving the book many thrilling and startling perspectives. I would recommend this book (and the rest of the series) to anyone who has recently finished "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" as it contains many of the same characters and allows you to go on even more adventures with your favourite demi-gods from Camp Half-Blood.

Rick Riordan does it AGAIN! It's awesome. And to Percy Jackson fans who got confused, don't worry. It IS a Percy Jackson Book. Athough there's no Percabeth time :(

“Piper gripped his hand and followed him, “If I fall, you’re catching me.” “Uh, sure.” Jason hoped he wasn’t blushing.
Leo stepped out next. “You’re catching me, too, Superman. But I ain’t holding your hand.”

Jason studied the statue, looking for anything he had in common with the Lord of the Sky. Black hair? Nope. Grumbly expression. Well maybe. Beard? No thanks. In his robes and sandals, Zeus looked like a really buff, really angry hippie.
Yeah, cabin one. A big honor, the other campers had told him. Sure, if you like sleeping in a cold temple by yourself with hippie Zeus frowning down at you all night.

Now the quotes I like, although that last one I am sure Elsa would have liked.
'Leo,' Jason said, 'you're weird.'
'Yeah, you tell me that a lot.' Leo ginned. 'But if you can't remember me, that means I can reuse all my old jokes. Come on!'

Well I told myself I would open the book and find a quote from that page and post it on here. So here it is:
'She's the goddess of snow,' Jason said. 'What's she going to do, throw snowballs at us?' But as he said it, Jason had a feeling Khione could do a lot worse.

Whatever Hera had done to shoot them across the country, it wasn't good for piper's stomach. She could barely control her nausea. Leo wasn't so lucky. He jumped of the table, ran to the nearest bronze brazier and threw up in it - which was probably not a great bunt offering for the gods.

7 half-bloods shall answer the call, to storm or fire the world must fall, an oath to be kept with a final breath, and foes bear arms to the doors of death.
You'd expect that after the last great prophecy it would take years for this one to come to pass. But of course Percy's luck isn't that good. I'm Jason and I just woke up in a bus driving to a museum in the middle of nowhere. Next thing I know my coach reveals himself to be a goat, a bunch of living clouds try to kill us and I can fly. Now I'm on my way to save a goddess from an army of monster with two people I've never met before in my life. This should be fun!

Jason wakes on a bus with no memory of anything (This is starting to sound like the maze runner) so rounded by friends who are convinced they know him and after a while things start falling into place.

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.

In this first installment of The Heroes of Olympus series, we are introduced to new characters, continuous adventure, and pour old heroes. With deadly fights, mind-blowing adventures, and everybody's least favorite thing-- cliffhangers-- that Rick kills us with. The Son of Neptune must be read the day after finishing this one!

At the beginning Jason did not know who he was but because of all his adventures he was able to regain his memory.Jason helped to save Olympus and he is the son of one of the big 3 just like Percy Jackson.This book is a lot longer than Percy Jackson and very adventurous.
