    Description

    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 ...

    LOTS OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

    I preordered this book a long time ago.Oh gods.I had been waiting for this book for a LONG time cuz the MOA cliffhanger just KILLED me.I mean,it was one of the sweetest but most heartbreaking moments.I had been reading fanfiction for the past few months to calm myself.
    **SPOILER ALERT**
    The first when i did when i got it was jump around, fangirl and squeal for a few moments,then run my fingers over Percabeth. Then I called my friends and told Ashwin(he had pre ordered before from some other s...

    HOUSE OF HADES !!!!!!!! THE BESTEST

    THOUSANDS OF DEADLY MONSTERS
    SEVEN BATTLING DEMIGODS
    ONE FATAL DECISION
    PERCY JACKSON'S DEADLIEST ADVENTURE

    This book deserves 10 stars (but, according to Flipkart you can give only 5 stars at maximum.) After all it is Riordan's book so it's always more than what you expect. Thank God there is no cliff-hanger (like the MOA). Some forgotten old characters appear in this book.

    Loved it!!!

    I've been waiting for this book a long time. Now, finally, I get to read it. Flipkart's delivery was on time.

    ~~Spoiler alert~~
    This book was absolutely mind blowing. There weren't as many laughs as in the other books but meeting the god of the abyss TARTARUS, man that was something. It covers up some of the loose ends of the previous books. Overall, I would say it's the best book of the series. Keep up the good work Rick Riordan. We love you.

    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. Riord...

    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

    Totally worth it!

    First of all, thanks to Flipkart for being amazing!

    **SPOILER ALERT**
    “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. I caress the book and the very sight of the beautiful red torture instrumen...
