The Lost Hero

I liked this book written by Rick Riordan. Now that Percy Jackson and his friends have defeated the Titan lords, it’s time to focus on rebuilding Camp Half-Blood and teaching the next generation of demigods, one of whom is Jason. But when Jason suffers from amnesia during a class trip to the Grand Canyon and discovers he can suddenly fly, he and his friends receive a visit from Annabeth Chase, the daughter of Athena.

This is the first book in the series The Heroes of Olympus, following the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. Riordan has said that he intends to release a new book every year, completing the series in 2014.

People who liked the Percy Jackson books will love this first installment of the new companion series. It follows three new heroes and is set in the same world as Percy Jackson, a couple of years later. Riordan makes a switch from the first person view of Percy to a third person rotating POV featuring the three new heroes: Jason, Piper, and Leo. I really liked this switch. It worked great with the new characters and made them feel equally important to the story. There are also cameos by some favorite PJ characters which I thoroughly enjoyed. The story in this one was pretty cool, but it is clear by the end that the follow-ups will be pretty epic, and now I can't wait to get my hands on them.
