Book Review: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:



Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,

To storm or fire the world must fall.

An oath to keep with a final breath,

And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.


Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.

For everybody who loved Percy Jackson and the Olympians, go get this book. It's excellent. There are lots of old faces returning to this new series as well as plenty of new ones, including the main characters: Jason, Piper, and Leo. Oh and guess what. Someone who we all know and love is missing. As in they're looking for him in this book. That's not what the whole book is about, but you will definitely want to know what happened to him.

So everybody who read the Percy Jackson series knows who Hera is, right? The queen of the gods? Yeah well, she plays a big part in this book. It's pretty interesting. Another think I liked about this books is how you get to see more of the Roman mythology coming out. So instead of Zeus you have Jupiter, and instead of Hera you have Juno, that kind of thing. I'll just bore you with one more thing I liked about this book. It has a lot of the adventure. It's really fast paced, just like the Percy Jackson series. There's a quest, and a solstice deadline, someone who needs saving, someone who might be a traitor, a bad guy trying to throw down Olympus, you get the picture.

One thing to think about before you read this book: If you haven't read Percy Jackson and the Olympians, a lot of this won't make any sense to you. Oh and the movie doesn't cut it. (By the way, I loved the movie. It was pretty awesome, if you think of it separate from the book. Try it sometime ;) So go out and read Percy Jackson and the Olympians if you haven't, and if you have, go read The Lost Hero.



Thanks for reading!
