Jacket.aspxWhen Jason wakes up on a camp bus, he has no knowledge of how he got there, who he is, or who his friends are.  He is soon confronted with a bully who turns into a storm and attacks him, his new friends, and a camp counselor who turns out to be half goat.  Jason is forced to fight for his life, and the lives of his new friends Piper and Leo, until a girl name Annabeth comes to their rescue.  Annabeth helps Jason and his friends escape to Camp Half-Blood where they all find out that they are demi-gods.

At Camp Half-Blood Jason, Piper, and Leo are sent on a quest by the Oracle of Apollo.  Hera has been captured and a powerful enemy is rising.  Can Jason, Piper, and Leo rescue Hera before the solstice?

The Lost Hero is the first in the Heroes of Olympus series.  It follows the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series, returning readers to Camp Half-Blood.  This book introduces new heroes, new villains, and a new great prophecy that again threatens the destruction of the whole world.  It is every bit as exciting and as magical as the Percy Jackson books.  This is a must read for fans of the Percy Jackson books; however, readers who have not read the Percy Jackson series are advised to start with The Lightning Thief as many of the characters and relationships from the first series carry over to this new sequel series.

Genre: Myth/Fables/Folklore  •  Interest Level: grades 4-8
