The Lost Hero is book 1 in the Heroes of Olympus series. The story begins when the main character Jason wakes on a bus and does not know who he is, where he is or what's happening. Fortunately for him his two friends Piper and Leo do know him .
Not long after the story starts these three teens find themselves in the midst of a huge adventure when on a class trip, this is the beginning of an adrenaline packed adventure combining modern day heros with Greek mythology , monsters and demigods. Those of you who learned about the Greek gods and goddesses at school will be familiar with a lot of the characters mentioned and there is a handy guide to them all at the end of the book.
I love the three main characters but Leo was my favourite character, he is quick with the one liners and is someone who you would want to be friends with. He is genuine and REALLY smart and fiercely loyal.
If you have previously read Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief then I think you will really enjoy this but it's not essential to have read Rick's previous series. The ending of this book is very exciting and surprising !!!!!!!! I can't wait to find out what happens next !
