This is the number one, bestselling title in this new spin-off series from Percy Jackson creator, Rick Riordan. Old enemies awaken as camp half-blood's new arrivals prepare for war. When Jason, Piper and Leo crash land at Camp Half-Blood, they have no idea what to expect. Apparently this is the only safe place for children of the Greek Gods - despite the monsters roaming the woods and demigods practising archery with flaming arrows and explosives. But rumours of a terrible curse - and a missing hero - are flying around camp. It seems Jason, Piper and Leo are the chosen ones to embark on a terrifying new quest, which they must complete by the winter solstice in just four days time. Can the trio succeed on this deadly mission - and what must they sacrifice in order to survive?

        Can you believe that kids who have extraordinary powers exist in the world?This story is about Leo who is a son of Hephaestus,Jason who is a son of Zeus,and Piper who is a daughter of Aphrodite go on a quest to rescue Piper's father from a giant called Encleadus.They also try to free Hera the goddess of marriage,from a cage at the Wolf House,which is sacred to the Romans,and also try to stop Gaea,the earth goddess from waking up Porphyrion who is the king of the Giants who wants to destroy the gods and Mt.Olympus.At first I didn't know what the author meant when it said that "Even before he got electrocuted,Jason was having a rotten day."But as I kept reading,I got that he got zapped by a storm spirit.

          This is the first book of the Heroes of Olympus series by RIck Riordan (his name may sound familiar if your read the Percy Jackson series and the first book of 39 Clues). There is a prophecy and this book focuses on three of the seven of the prophecy. The three are Jason, Piper, and Leo. This book was really interesting, and not only is it a thrilling adventure, but it still feeds you some Greek mythology facts so I suggest everyone on Earth to read this book!

            This is the first book in the Heroes of Olympus series. Percy Jackson fans can hold on for a while, Rick Riordan introduces 3 new demigods: Jason, son of Jupiter (Zeus's Roman form); Piper, daughter of Aphrodite; and Leo, son of Hephaestus. They go on a journey to save Hera who is trapped by a giant. (Hera is the queen of the gods and Zeus's wife).

              This first book in the Heroes of Olympus series focuses on three demigods: Jason is the main character. He has amnesia and doesn't remember anything from his past. Piper, whose father has been kidnapped, and Leo, who sees the ghost of his first babysitter and has a power that is considered a curse. When they arrive at Camp Half-Blood, they are given a quest: rescue the queen of Olympus from a giant. While on the quest they have to face many challenges, such as gods, cyclopes, and resurrected characters from Greek mythology. I have to admit that at first I wasn't planning on reading this series, just because Percy wasn't on this book, but I'm now glad I did. This book is different from the PJO series, primarily because it has multiple points of view. This wasn't an issue. I enjoyed being in the mind of the three demigods and see through their eyes. Even though this is intended for an audience older than PJO, fans of Percy's adventures can still enjoy this book series.

                      I think this book is amazing! I would read the first series if you have not read Rick Riordan's books, and Inam looking forward to the next book.
