The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Did you love to read mythology as a child? Do you love fantasy and adventure? If so, do I have a series for you! Rick Riordan wrote the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Starting with The Lightning Thief, which was also released as a movie in 2010, and ending with The Last Olympian, many of Rick Riordan's fans were sad to reach what they thought was the end of their favorite demigods. With the release of Lost Hero: Heroes of Olympus, Book 1, fans can again cheer on their favorite demigod. This new adventure series introduces us to three new teens, Jason, Piper, and Leo. They have been labeled as "troubled teens", but are really three unclaimed children of the gods. The narration of the book rotates between three teen demigods as they discover and cope with their new found talents. The story is fast paced and the plot moves along with the teens going from one problem to the next. I truly enjoy how Riordan weaves information about Greek & Roman mythology into the story. Who is Jason? Why does he keep using Roman names for the Gods and other creatures? What about the Great Prophecy? And where in the world is Percy Jackson?
