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 in anticipation for Book Two. The accessible and dramatic cover art by graphic novelist Nilah Magruder will attract a new generation of readers.

    The Lost Hero, by Rick Riordan is a really great myth/fantasy book because this book's plot is about three kids named Jason, Piper, and Leo who have to go on a quest to free Hera-the queen of all gods- from Mother Nature, who turns out to be evil. While on the quest, they encounter enemies who try to kill the three kids from freeing Hera. At the end, they figure out that Percy Jackson and Jason Grace has been switched and their memories have been taken away, for Hera wants them to find their way out.

            This book is so good. It has this you know from Percy Jackson but how other people see it. It has a lot of excitement and has new characters and old. I could not put it down. I would read it again and again.

                I read the Percy Jackson series and decided to read the second series (The Heroes of Olympus) because I liked the author and the books. It's an action packed book and there is never a dull moment

                  I think we can all agree Leo is too hot to handle and we need to get the weed wakers on this boi. Someone get Percy some loops and Piper is LAMP
