Der verschwundene Halbgott // The Lost Hero!!!
Der verschwundene Halbgott (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan

spoilerfree
german and english review

Inhalt: Jason erinnert sich an nichts mehr - nicht einmal an seinen Namen. Leo und Piper scheinen zwar seine Freunde zu sein, aber auch das kann er nicht mit Sicherheit sagen. Und als es die drei dann plötzlich ins Camp Half Blood verschlägt, wo angeblich nur Kinder von griechischen Göttern aufgenommen werden, versteht er gar nichts mehr ...
Allem Anschein nach gehören die drei Freunde tatsächlich zu den legendären sieben Halbgöttern, die den Olymp vor dem Untergang bewahren sollen. Kein Problem, los geht's -denn Leo treibt einen kaputten mechanischen Drachen als Transportmittel auf und macht ihn wieder flott!
Und dann gilt es auch noch einen seit längerem verschwundenen Halbgott zu finden, einen gewissen Percy Jackson ...

Meine Bewertung: Ich liebe es!!!

Oh Gott, es ist großartig wieder etwas in der Welt zu lesen, vor allem etwas Neues, nachdem ich ja immer nur die Percy Jackson Reihe gelesen habe. Ich wusste echt nicht in welche Richtung die Serie hier gehen würde und war vorher auch wirklich jedem einzelnen Spoiler aus dem Weg gegangen, was garnicht so einfach war.

Ich bin total begeistert. Von den Charakteren, der Story. ALLES.

Die drei neuen Hauptcharaktere sind schon jetzt meine Babies. Ich liebe Piper so sehr. Und Leo. Jason auch, nur nicht so sehr wie die anderen Beiden. Ooops. Ich finde aber seine Geschichte unheimlich spannend und interessant. Die Freundschaft der drei ist einfach alles. Sie sind noch nicht auf dem "Percy, Annabeth, Grover sind meine Babies" Level, aber ich hab ja noch einige Bücher übrig.

Ich bin wirklich auf den Rest der Serie gespannt und wo das alles hinführt.

Summary: JASON HAS A PROBLEM. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper, and his best friend is a guy named Leo. They’re all students at the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids," as Leo puts it. What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly? Jason doesn't know anything—except that everything seems very wrong.

PIPER HAS A SECRET. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare about his being in trouble. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits during the school trip, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out, whether she wants to or not.

LEO HAS A WAY WITH TOOLS. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about, and some camper who's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god. Does this have anything to do with Jason's amnesia, or the fact that Leo keeps seeing ghosts?

My review: I love it!!!

Oh god, it was just the greatest to be back into the world and to actually read something new than just rereading the Percy Jackson series. I didn't know what to expect from this series and I avoided every single spoiler, which wasn't that easy.

I'm totally excited about this. The characters, the story. EVERYTHING.

The three new characters are my babies already. I love Piper so much. And Leo. Jason, of course, not as much as the others but I like him. Ooops. But I find his story super interesting and just fascinating. The friendship between these three is everything. They aren't on the "Percy, Annabeth, Grover are my babies" level, but I still got a few more books left.

I'm just totally excited to read the rest of the series and I'm sooo looking forward to finding out where this will go.

The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus, #2)
The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus, #2) - Rick Riordan I enjoyed reading the second installment in the Heroes of Olympus series. But for some reason I wasn't that excited to continue reading this one as a was with the last one. I can't really pinpoint why this is, but I did enjoy my time together with Percy, Hazel and Frank. I really liked the voices of an old character and two new characters. Thought I don't feel so much for Frank.

The Lost Hero
The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1) - Rick Riordan

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 good Asian characters. Before I started Son of Neptune I actually googled Asian characters of Rick Riordan's because I needed reassurance some were coming... I was not disappointed and that's pretty much the reason I kept with the series. I mean, before Frank the best we had was Annabeth's stepmom who's in the series for all of two seconds.

 

The Lost Hero continues with this whole "too much" makeup/people who wear makeup are shallow/natural beauty is best bs idea. I'm still not a fan of that.

 

But I'm glad Riordan finally addresses the use of "half-blood" in the series (forgot to mention that in my PJO reviews... oops).

 

I also have a lot of thoughts about Piper's dad and his Hollywood career, but they're not organized in my head yet.

The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus)
The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus) - Rick Riordan Holy Hephaestus! Fabulous. Riordan tells an amazing story and he keeps the pace up from start to finish. You never really want to put the book down until you're done.
