The Lost Hero ****

By Rick Riordan


I consider this to be a GREAT adventure/fantasy book! Same author that wrote the 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' series (of which are listed on here somewhere - check the archive) and the 'Kane Chronicles' (listed below is the first book 'The Red Pyramid'). I really liked it. Like Riordan's previous works 'The Lost Hero' is very funny and exciting. It's also a clean read which makes it AWESOME. I loved it :D

Jason wakes up on a school bus not remembering who he is and where he came from. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a BFF named Leo - but he's not too sure.
Piper is the daughter of a famous movie star; Tristan McLean. He never really has time for her so she gets into trouble so he will actually pay attention to her. When Jason, her boyfriend, suddenly doesn't recognize her, her world changes forever.
Leo is an orphan with a dark past and a secret. He loves to tinker and build things. When his closest friend wakes up with amnesia on the school bus, and his gym teacher turns out to be half-goat, he finally finds what he is meant to do.
When this trio are identified as 'demi gods', sons and daughters of gods and goddesses, they are whisked away to Camp Halfblood; a refuge and training center for young heroes to train for quests and fighting monsters in the real world. As Jason struggles to find his identity and protect the ones he loves, as Piper tries to get Jason to remember her, and as Leo unlocks the mysteries of his past...in the midst of all this can they also save the world?
