Description

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.

Rick Riordan, the best-selling author of the Percy Jackson series, pumps up the action and suspense in The Lost Hero, the first book in The Heroes of Olympus series. Fans of demi-gods, prophesies, and quests will be left breathless--and panting for Book Two.

Interesting
By: Leanita Winandari

Righ after I finished Percy Jackson's The Last Olympians, I began to wonder what would happen if  Greek meets Roman half-blood. Then a year later Riordan came up with this book. And...

Welcome back to Camp Half-Blood!

The Lost Hero is a good start for Riordan's Greek-Roman series. The idea is really well-cooked. Although there is nothing new about Riordan's writing, he still uses the same formula: quest, monster, and elses. I don't say that it's bad, I'm okay with that because like I said before: I love the idea about Greek meets Roman.

But somehow in the beginning,  I can hardly connect with the characters. I... See More

don't know, maybe it's  because this book uses the third person switching between three character's POV. Piper is kind of Mary Sue for me. Jason reminds me of Percy a bit because they both are born to be the leader. Though Jason's character makes me bored because he always follows the rules. Leo is funny and his jokes and sarcasm is the best thing about this book (though, why is he remind me of Percy, too?)

As a fan of PJO series, I'm happy when old characters on that series shows up.

A Solid Start
By: Titie Andelina Wiji

Definitely a reread. Overall enjoyable, though I'd say it wasn't nearly as great as The Last Olympians, which is honestly the best. I remember reading The Lost Hero almost six years ago and I loved it. However, my reread experience didn't give the same feeling, which is odd. But it was still really good.  To be honest, I felt like it dragged a little and not much really happened. It took me two weeks to finish this, which was ridiculous. The thing about this book was when I put it down, the desire to pick it up again was not really there. I had to force myself to pick it up again, but when I did, I was quite immersed. It just wasn't really engaging for me. On the contrary, I appreciated the amount of mysteries and the way they all unfolded and fit together. Everything was thoroughly planned, well, duh, it's Rick Riordan, what else do you expect?  Well, I cannot wait to jump into The Son of Neptune, not only because there is my baby Percy there, but I need to know what happens next (I sure have forgotten a lot of things!), but my impatience and excitement is mostly because of Percy. Surprise, surprise. Anyway, I love love love Leo! When I first read The Lost Hero, I was more into Jason. But it has obviously changed now. Leo reminds me a lot of Percy. Their sense of humor is just A++++!
