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.

I always have a lot of fun with Rick Riordan's books, and this was not different. I'm make a full review of the entire series when I'm done, but for now just know that I'm loving this!
This book was too long. Seriously. Also Rick Riordan obviously never watched Charmed. The references in this book were less obvious than in Percy Jackson and the Olympians but that might just be because I'd read those before and I was coming to this series fresh. Also, this series needs some goo...
Well well well. I was not expecting to enjoy this so damn much Alrighty, new characters! I loved all of them so much. Leo was a riot, Piper was badass as hell, and the mystery surrounding Jason was interesting. Jason himself wasn't the best, but he was nice. In addition to new characters, the char...
Is Percy back? Back to my favourite old series (well not old – but I did like the original series that I read earlier in the year). However, this series begins completely different. Don’t read further into this paragraph if you don’t want to be spoilt. Instead of Percy Jackson being the main charact...
Like others I enjoyed Riordan's Percy Jackson books as well as the Kane Chronicles. So I waited around for this series to finish and decided to buy the first one on a whim. More Camp Half-Blood? Wooohoo! Unfortunately, the book is too long and could have seriously used better.more editing. The set...
