The Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero
Book one of the Heroes of Olympus series
Percy has been missing for three days, and Jason has mysteriously found himself transported into the Camp where he grapples with a variety of malevolent supernatural challenges which venture increasingly into the realms of Roman mythology.
Riordan’s customary mix of humour, mythology, and just the right frisson of scariness once again elevate this novel above the ordinary. Cunningly disguised among the exploits of the unruly teenagers, and the dysfunctional family interactions between the deities and their offspring are valuable reassurances for young readers whose own life has been less than perfect.
