Heroes Of The Olympus: The Lost Hero is a fantasy adventure novel based on Roman and Greek mythology.
Summary Of The Book
The first in a series of novels titled Heroes of The Olympus, the book was written in an attempt to unravel several untouched Roman and Greek myths.
Heroes Of The Olympus: The Lost Hero begins with Jason returning to consciousness on a school bus next to Piper, his girlfriend, and Leo, his best friend. Jason is suffering from memory loss and can’t recollect many things. As the trip proceeds, the trio and the coach are attacked by Dylan, a classmate who turns into a storm spirit. Jason, to everyone’s surprise, turns one of his coins into a sword and fights with it. The fight ends with Coach Hedge, actually a satyr, being taken captive by a spirit and a flying chariot arriving to pick the trio up. However, a classmate Annabeth is upset when she finds that her boyfriend, whom she had come looking for as directed by Goddess Hera, is not amongst them.
After returning to the camp, the trio discovers that they are all demigods and are assigned the task of rescuing Hera, who has been captured. During the operation, they meet several gods and Jason also meets his sister, who he had been separated from at the age of two.
The trio seek the help of their respective parents to rescue Hera. However, after the same, the King of Giants rises with Hera’s energy and disappears down under the earth when Hera attempts to kill him. Will Jason comprehend what these occurrences mean? Will he be able to overcome the memory loss he suffered initially? All these questions and more are answered in this book.
Heroes Of The Olympus: The Lost Hero received rare accolades and won the Barnes & Noble award for the best book in 2010 and also remained a bestseller for quite some time.

Rick Riordan: Perfection PersonifiedAfter that torturous wait, Rick Riordan has affirmed his fans' belief that he is indeed "The Myth Master" with the fabulously epic The Mark of Athena.

COMPLETELY AWESOME!!!The book is awesome really - better than all three books. All demigods show their talents through several occasions while Percy and Annabeth wander the deadly realm of Tartarus. Since no one can give a perfect description for tartarus, i would say riordan has done an excellent job imagining it as horrible as possible. Spoiler alert: The starting chapters itself are awesome when Hazel meets hecate who warns that she would meet a formidable enemy in the house of hades. hazel discovers her talent for magic and mist manipulation. Also, the Romans and Greeks are expected to be at peace and i wish t… (Expand)

Rick does it again!!Even after all these years Rick still continues to amaze me. Waiting for a Riordan novel has always been the highlight of my year ever since I picked up The Lightning Thief so many years ago. Even with the bar raised high, this book still managed to blow my mind. The best thing about this book is Annabeth's POV. We come to realize just how smart, brave and kind she is. We also realize just how much Percy means to her and how loyal she is to her friends. Percy's POV is awesome as always. Riordan's character development is extremely noticeable here. You can see how much Percy has changed since h… (Expand)

A superb story.. Great continuationAfter reading the Percy Jackson Series,I had huge expectations on this book. Though it is good, its narration is very slow. Very unlike Rick Riordan. Though his style is clear,the book needs a lot of patience to read. At 551pages, it is pretty long. Overall its great. Now please release second book in India. Only Imported Edition is available as of now and that too too costly..
