Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus Book 1) (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 267

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 Personified

After 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.

Continuing where SoN left off, MoA gets off to a great start with Annabeth's PoV. The best thing about the book, other than the great Percabeth Reunion, intertwined plot-lines, a host of new villains and the thickening mystery, is that we finally get to see what's going inside our dear old Wise Girl's head. It is refreshing to see things from the perspective of a character who's been with us from the start of the first series, who's gro…

Fun to read, a definite page turner

Mythomagical world of Camp Half-Blood see the beginning of the next Great prophecy, the one cited by Rachel(The Oracle)in The Last Olympian.
I won't talk 'bout the plot as most of it is already there and adding anything would be a spoiler.

As far as the writing style is concerned, its a little matured if compared to the former books. The humor is developed and makes you smile even when the situation is dangerous, I mean deadly dangerous.

However what appears as a great improvement is the emotional flow of the characters. The way they feel for each other. Their connection …

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…

AWESOME BOOK BAD FLIPKART

the book is the best book in the series and one should not think twice to buy it.I actually enjoyed the book. Even more than the entire Percy Jackson & The Olympians series. It's a light read, and every page keeps you entertained.but the bad part part was FLIPKART. When I opened the book,some pages were attached to each other but i didn't mind that.The worst part was that,IN THE MIDDLE,THE PRINTING WAS UPSIDE DOWN.moreover,it started from another page and i had a great difficulty in finding out the the correct page from where this upside-down thing happened.Atleast,flipkart should ensure that …

A superb story.. Great continuation

After 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..

Overall A Must read for PJ fans

“To my wonderful readers:
Sorry about that last cliffhanger.
Well, no, not really. HAHAHAHA.
But , seriously, I love you guys.”
So, Rick must have a serious death wish if that’s his dedication.
I had to wait a slow, painful year to finally get my hands on HoH. So, I rip open the plastic with this mad glint in my eye and take in the wonderful sight.

If you have read Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian, I'm sure you remember the next great prophecy recited by Rachel-the new Oracle.
