Title: The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus #1)
Author: Rick Riordan
Release Date: October 10, 2010 by Disney Hyperion
Wow, yet another series from Rick Riordan (although yeah I know I’m very late)! But this time, I got to meet new characters, new demigods: Jason, Piper, and Leo. Jason, the one who woke up having no memories who he is. Piper, the beauty queen. Leo, the flaming Valdez. The three were sent to a quest to save the goddess Hera.
What did I like? Everything. YES! But what I liked, or loved the most is when everybody’s addressing Percy as Annabeth’s boyfriend.
Butch hesitated. “Annabeth’s okay. You gotta cut her some slack. She had a vision telling her to come here, to find a guy with one shoe. That was supposed to be the answer to her problem.”
“Her boyfriend.” Butch said. “A guy named Percy jackson.”
“Him?” Leo said. “Who are you talking about?”
“My boyfriend.” Annabeth said grimly.
OH DON’T YOU JUST LOVE PERCABETH but I gotta stop talking about them here. Really.
Anyways, I kinda miss those titles of the chapters in the PJO series. In The Lost Hero, the chapter number is being followed by the character’s name. But I still love how Rick Riordan wrote the book. Things got more intense as I move on from one chapter to another.
I also loved how finally someone asked about everybody being cousins in here or how is it possible that gods and godesses had so many children whose age is very close to each other. FINALLY! At least I’m no longer that puzzled because really though, how is that possible?
Funny how when you’re a demigod on a quest, you always get to meet monsters or gods or some creatures on your way. Who could you trust?!?!?! Seriously. And that little twist about the Roman camp though, wow. So that’s why Jason calls every gods and goddesses in their Roman names. Ohh. It was pretty surprising and made the story more interesting.
The ending. THE ENDING! Why are the books I’ve been reading recently ends in a “it shouldn’t have ended like that” way? But I’m not including this book to those whose ending annoyed me. It just made me want to read more! I’m not even a fan of Greek Mythology (let’s include Roman, now) but I am totally loving it. Looking forward to reading the next books!!!
