Meet Jason, Piper and Leo


The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan 
reviewed by Bersabeh 

Do you like mythology? Do you like fiction? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you will probably like this book. The Lost Hero is a book that is fiction and mythology mashed together.

The main characters are Leo, Jason, and Piper who are half-bloods; half-bloods are people who have one mortal parent and one immortal parent, a Greek or a Roman god. Leo is a son of Hephaestus (god of fire), Jason is a son of Zeus (god of the sky), and Piper is a daughter of Aphrodite (goddess of love). The trio use their special powers they inherited from their immortal parents to fight the evil earth giant, Enceladus, who is about 30 feet tall. He is holding hostage Piper's famous father, Tristan McClean, and Hera, the queen of gods. Gaia, who made Enceladus, is sucking up Hera's power day by day, and Leo, Jason and Piper have less than a month to locate the giant. That sounds so tiring!

I enjoyed the book very much because it's one of those books that you can't put it down and want to read it all night. The Lost Hero is definitely for kids ages 11 and up and Iím really sure boys and girls will like it very much. In my opinion it is the best series ever. you just have to read this book, you must!

[Librarian's note: this is the first book in the second Percy Jackson series.]
