                                                  The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1)
My Thoughts: 

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

New prophecy. New characters. New adventure. Same, EPIC world!!!

Meet our new demigods; Jason, Piper and Leo.
Jason is the mystery in this trio, see he doesn't remember anything, not even who he is. A God has stolen his memories.
Piper has a secret, a terrible one that will only cause pain and suffering, but what other choice does she have?
Leo, the comic relief of our group, is good at fixing stuff, now only if he can fix his past long enough to stop the running.
Each are intertwined through a destiny that has brought them to this moment in time.
A Quest. The start of the new prophecy has begun...

To be honest, I was a littleteeytinybit nervous that this book wasn't going to live up to my expectations. Percy Jackson and his gang were quite the amazing characters and I wasn't sure I was willing to let them go while a bunch of new demigods took over.
Yeah, I don't know what the hell I was thinking. Rick's the man, and he quickly put my mind at ease once I got this book in my hands. I can't believe how much I've missed this world.

I loved this book! I don't care that I'm a 36 year old mom of two. I adore this whole series so much! Rick is like, the male JKR, he has the most amazing imagination and it's penned in such a solid pace. It's completely captivating that I just wanted to savor every single word of this 500+ book and before I knew it, I was already done and craving more.

There are so many colorful new characters, creatures and monsters to enjoy. Reading this feels like my own little history lesson in mythology. I loved there back stories, there unique talents, there choice of weapons and the magic of it all. We even get to see some of our favorite familiar hero's, but sadly, some aren't here in this book, but hoping Rick will include them in the next

I don't want to give anything away. A lot of great and fun stuff happen in this book. It's more gripping, a little more intense but still the fun and fantastic escape that I've come to rely on, still lives in these pages.

Remarkable-Remarkable stuff! The Lost Hero is an incredible start to a brand new adventure!
Highly entertaining! Highly recommended! For all ages!
Read this, it's made of pure awesomesauce!
