Finally I'm reviewing The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. This is the first book in The Heroes of Olympus series, which is a sequel or spin-off series of the Percy Jackson and The Olympians series.
This book is about three new demigods, Piper, the daughter of Aphrodite, Leo, the son of Hephaestus, and Jason, the son of Jupiter (as in the Roman version of Zeus). Jason wakes up on a bus and he can't remember anything. Piper says that she's his girlfriend and Leo say the he's his best friend. The three of them have to go on a quest to save Hera, who was kidnapped by giants. And Percy Jackson is missing.
I love Jason, Piper, and Leo! Jason is awesome. I love his relationship with Piper and Leo. It's hard not to like Jason in this book, at least it was like that to me. I thought it was cool that when they were at Camp Half-Blood Jason kept referencing Roman stuff. And does anyone else ship Jasper?
Piper Is also kind of going through a hard time in this book. She's really upset that her relationship with Jason was a trick of the Mist caused by Hera. Who can blame her for that? She also has this cool power where she can charmspeak people into doing what she tells them to.
Leo Valdez is amazing!!! He is so funny, and awesome, and he's really good with tools. He also becomes friends with mechanical dragon named Festus. Leo definitely has a sad history involving his mom dying, but he doesn't let it get him down, that's how awesome he is.
I liked that we see Annabeth, Thalia, and Chiron again. And Thalia being Jason sister was cool.
And it's probably a good thing I joined this fandom late because the ending had a big cliff hanger.
I seriously hate Hera! She's so annoying.
All in all, I loved this book. This series is just as good as the last one.
