Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune


Book Titles: The Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero

The Heroes of Olympus: The Son of Neptune

Author: Rick Riordan

Illustrator: Steve Stone

Publisher: Puffin Books

The reason I got these books is because I love the Percy Jackson series. I also got it because I love adventurous stories that have fights and a bit of comedy in it. If you like adventures you should get these books.

Critical review:

This is an interesting series because if you like Percy Jackson then you will love this. Unlike the Percy Jackson books, this series takes the view of 3 different people.  For example, in book one Jason, Piper, and Leo are the three point of view characters. In the beginning it is a little confusing because Jason is introduced without much description of who he is, partially because his memory has been taken. Leo in book one can do something amazing. In book two Frank has a special talent passed down through his family that is very fascinating. The adventures are mind blowing. The gods in this series can change from their Greek form to their Roman form.

Story Summary:

In this series, in the first book you find a person named Jason who is the son of Zeus. Later you meet Piper and Leo who are all  going to Camp Half Blood.  In book one Jason, Piper, and Leo are searching for the monsters source of power. In the second book you find Percy with Hazel and Frank in a different adventure to fight the eldest giant Alcyoneus in Alaska. I hope you all like this series.

    My son does book reviews, because he is an avid reader, and also to help improve his writing skills. Please check out his latest post.

    Very nice review, Kurt. I can understand how it would be confusing if the main character starts out not knowing who he is, but that is also a good way to help us understand him better. Thank you for the recommendation.

    Hi Kurt. Great review! I’d love to see a review of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. It’s not like the books you’ve reviewed here but it’s one I’ve read lots of times at different ages and I get something different out of it each time.

    These are good books -I’m glad you’re enjoying them. I learnt some interesting things about Roman mythology that I didn’t hear at school!
