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.

    Jason Grace does not remember anything. He has appeared at a school and apparently his best friend is Leo Valdez and his girlfriend is Piper McLean. However, Coach Hedge is not fooled. He knows Jason has appeared from out of nowhere, and he tells him that he is watching him and two others who are demigods. The bullies turn out to be monsters, and one gets away with Coach Hedge. They get rescued by Butch and Annabeth. Annabeth is frustrated because she was expecting to find her boyfriend, Percy Jackson. They go to Camp Halfblood, where their future awaits them. Overall, I thought this book was a great start to the Heroes of Olympus series. I recommend this book to people who enjoyed the Percy Jackson series, or people who like reading about greek mythology. I rate this 5/5.

      In this fast paced adventure by Rick Riordan, three demigods must journey across the globe to fulfill a prophecy and search for the missing Percy Jackson. But will the team be torn apart by enemies? Or will they be able to stop whoever is behind everything? This book was really cool. I like how you read it from three different viewpoints. Rick Riordan did a fantastic job.

            Imagine waking up in a school bus holding hands with a girl and not even knowing who you are, where you are, not remembering anything! That's what happened to Jason Grace. He apparently has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend called Leo,and attends Wilderness School in Nevada, but the only thing he knows is that he isn't supposed to be here. They then get attacked on a skywalk on the Grand Canyon by venti and their coach,Hedge,gets taken and Annabeth Chase and Butch find them and take them to Camp Half-Blood, learning that they are demigods... This is a great book, action-packed and perfect, definitely read it!
