The Lost Hero Book Review

Posted by at 9:38 am in Percy Jackson, Reads | Permalink

Rick_riordan If you are a Percy Jackson fan, then you probably already know about Rick Riordan’s new series, The Heroes of Olympus. Well, book #1 is available now, and a Scholastic Kid Reporter gives us this review. Lost_hero

“Author Rick Riordan is back and is even better than ever! His new book The Lost Hero has finally been released. Although based on stories from Greek mythology similar to his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, The Lost Hero is not exactly a sequel. It introduces new characters and different concepts.”

Read the entire book review.

    I loved this book. The end was very suprising and kinda left you hanging. I can’t decide what was better but I have to say that Percy Jackson is a lot funier.

    The Lost Hero is a PHENOMENAL book. I’ve read and reread it about 6 times.The characters, their dilemas, and their voice seem really lifelike. I’ve read all the Percy Jackson books about 10 times each. The day we were scheduled to get The Lost Hero I had reread the whole Percy Jackson series in preparation for this book. I also wore Percy Jackson themed silly bands. The LOst Hero was totally worth the wait. It is one of my favorite books ever.

    I finished The Lost Hero, it is soooooo awesome. but i miss percy as a character. He plays a big part in this book even though all they do is talk about him.

    I`m a BIG fan of Rick Riordan, but I didn`t really like The Lost Hero as much as Percy Jackson. It`s just my opinion…

    WOW! I LOVE the Percy Jackson series (like, my favorite books EVER), and I was sooo excited when I saw that there was going to be a ‘sequel series’! I bought “The Lost Hero”, and couldn’t put it down as I was reading it!!! Dude, those two major twists… I never saw them coming!
    *SPOILER ALERT!!!*
    I also really liked how you got to find out more about Thalia, and see a different side of the Aphrodite kids. I’m kind of wondering how Rick Riordan is going to explain all the Roman-camp stuff, though. Still, twas an AWESOME book; I hate that we have to wait ’till next fall to read the next one!

    it was a great book. I loved it! I liked how he combined two cultures that were similar but not exactly the same in the story. Plus, I liked how he started a new series with some of the same characters. I like new stories about Percy and the gang but I also like the new characters he combined.

    I liked this book a lot. It was written like the Percy Jackson series with all the witty comments but it also had a new feeling to it. Great book!

    please don’t ruin this book for me. I haven’t read it yet,and I don’t want a spoiler. I’m a HUGE Percy Jackson fan, though I skipped The titan’s curse because I didn’t like it at all.

    I hate to be the only one who doesn’t say it is amazing
    but I kind of didn’t like it
    it was boring sometimes and I think Rick riordan is better at writing in first person!! but it was okay I guess. and it was cool how he was like roman and everything

    OHMIGOSH THAT BOOK WAS AMAZING!I WAS LOVING IT FROM START TO FINISH!The thing about Rick Riordan is, is that he understands our teenageish minds. He writes his characters like normal teens. I loved how Jason keeps saying the gods names in Roman form. It gives it a sense of mystery:)Leo was hilarious!He always had something witty to say….gosh..this book was awesome!

    Omg! I LOVED THE HEROES OF OLYMPUS! ALTHOUGH I THINK I LIKE PERCY JACKSON MORE. BUT I STILL CAN’T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK COMES OUT.THE BOK WAS SO AWESOME BUT IT DIDN’T TELL MUCH ABOUT THE OTHER CAMP WHERE PERCEY JACKSON LIVED.

    OH. MY. GODS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Percy Jackson. And I also love The Lost Hero!!!!!!!!! I’ve just re-read The Lost Hero today and I can tell anyone who has already read the Percy Jacksons and loved them that this is the book for them. It might even be better than the Percys. The story is fast paced with always some action and there’s a bit more of romantism that before. Though that, in my opinion, makes it better! I CAN SIMPLY NOT wait for the next book in the series. The end is twisted so you feel like you MUST read the second one.
    So if you haven’t got it yet, GO GET IT NOW!

    I LOVE Rick Riordan’s books!
    I like Percy Jackson and the Olympians better than the Heroes of Olympus series, but not by much!
    I wrote a book review on the Lost Hero for a kids book blog on National Geographic kids (moderator: you can’t get any personal info there. It’s kind of like the Stacks.) And I got in the top ten! I still might win the contest!
