The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus #01) by Rick Riordan
The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus #01)

geric, January 5, 2013

The Percy Jackson series was recommended to me by very good friends: a couple and their then 11-year old son. I borrowed the books from the son and loved them so much! I put off reading the Heroes of Olympus series, partly because I didn't want to be disappointed that the first book, The Lost Hero, didn't feature him. I finally borrowed The Lost Hero and the Son of Neptune from the same friends, especially since my niece had read and loved that series. The Lost Hero was just a great as the Percy Jackson series even though Percy didn't appear in it! I am so amazed by Rick Riordan's imagination and ability to incorporate the Greek and Roman legends in a way that seems true to them while creating a very "modern" tale that is exciting to people of different ages.
