    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.

    Amazing Book

    The Heroes of Olympus series is as promising as the Percy Jackson series. It is actually in continuation with Percy Jackson. If you are a Percy Jackson fan, I guarantee you it's as awesome as the the rest in the series.
    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. This book is based on that prophecy, and the book introduces 3 new heroes out of the 7 in the Great Prophecy. Jason, Leo and Piper are the mai...

    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

    Amazing Book - Great Creativity and Imagination

    I have always loved mythological books and games. If you've read the Percy Jackson series, you will enjoy revisiting Camp Half-Blood and some of the characters from that series. I love the set up of how the new characters will eventually intermingle with the original characters, but at the same time, this is a whole new adventure.

    Although I was disappointed of finding Percy missing throughout the book, I was glued to the book with the experience of Jason, Piper and my favorite character in...

    Great Continuation to the Myth-Magic World of Rick Riordan

    Rick is back with his myth-modern story and narration. Again you will be lost and engrossed in the mythological and magical world spun by Rick Riordan. But this time Greek mythology isn't the only building block; Rick has introduced the Roman mythology as well. With this new change, he didn't forget his good-old writing skill which presents us humor in every part of his book, whether battling monster or eating lunch. The series 'Heroes of Olympus' focuses on the 'Prophecy of the Seven' recit...

    Awesome Sequel and maintains the legacy

    A great sequel to the epic Percy Jackson series. Riordan maintains his style.
    The book is awesome (can't think of any way to describe it)
    The new demigods are really good (Leo is the best). Best thing about the book is that it informs about the Roman aspects of the Greek gods also.
    The book is written in a third person view and there are no chapter names, just jason, piper and leo and the narrator describes each chapter according to the person with whom the chapter is associated.
    The book is ...
