As a huge fan of Percy Jackson, I was so excited to continue the adventure with The Heroes of Olympus. After reading this book, the first in the series, I’m neither satisfied nor disappointed. It was nice to dive back in to the world of Camp Half-Blood but I just couldn’t get too involved with the new characters like I did with Percy and his crew. I also purchased the second book to try and get more into it, that book will determine whether I continue the series or not. As for if I would recommend this book, I’d say it’s worth a try. 🙂 Check it out!
From School Library Journal Gr 5-9-This book will delight fans of The Lightning Thief (Hyperion, 2005) as Percy, Annabeth, and others play roles in the new prophecy and its subsequent quest. A few months after The Last Olympian (Hyperion, 2009) ends, Jason wakes up on a bus filled with problem kids from the Wilderness School who are headed to the Grand Canyon. He has no memory of his previous life, but seems to be with his girlfriend, Piper, and his best friend, Leo. The action takes off quickly: storm spirits attack them and capture their coach, who turns out to be a Satyr. Searching for Percy, who is missing, Annabeth arrives and takes the three to Camp Half-Blood, where they learn that they are demigods. Their parents are gods in their Roman rather than Greek personae. By sunset of the solstice in three days, the teens must rescue Hera, Queen of the gods, or Porphyrion, the giant king created to destroy Zeus and unseat the gods of Olympus, will rise. Their quest takes them across the United States, sometimes flying on a mechanical, 60-foot dragon, as they use their power and wits against Medea, King Midas, and the giant cannibal Enceladus. Riordan excels at clever plot devices and at creating an urgent sense of cliff-hanging danger. His interjection of humor by incongruous juxtaposition-Medea, for example, heads up a New York City department store-provides some welcome relief. The young heroes deal with issues familiar to teens today: Who am I? Can I live up to the expectations of others? Having read the first series is helpful but not essential, and the complex plot is made for sequels.-Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle School, South Portland, ME (c) Copyright 2010.

The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, Book 1) Audio CD – Audiobook, CD, Unabridged by Rick Riordan (Author) Review
I chose this rating because first off, I liked the messages it have out. How Piper’s mother is Aphrodite but she can still be a hero and he brave and bold. You always expect Athena’s children to do everything and make everything right, but Piper is a sign that your parents don’t make out who you are. I extremely loved Piper as a character, because she is that female role model that you love. I also liked that Leo was not intended to be the third wheel. When everybody had their eyes on the brilliant Jason who is Zeus’s son and Good looking Piper who looks hot, he still is brilliant and a very likable character. I can’t say much about Jason, because he’s a full main character. Additionally, I liked that the series continued and I thank the brilliant Rick Riordan who is the phenomenal author and who created all of this! Please keep making good books and I loved this one! -Read Reviews-
Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Demigod Files by Rick Riordan is one of my favorite books ever. I love the never told, action-packed stories like this: Percy, Nico, and Thalia go to the underworld and try to retrieve the Sword of Hades from one of Kronoss servants and end up fighting Iapetus the titan on the banks of the River Lethe. In the end, Percy drags the titan into the river and re-names him Bob, which I find funny because it is hilarious to re-name an immortal being Bob. (Also, it is a lame pun. ) Additionally, I like the book because you can read the stories in 1-3 sittings. (Each story is about 30 pages. ) I hope you like the book as much as I did!
