Book Review: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Synopsis (from Amazon.com): After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own: 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. Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.

Age: 9, but I would like to add that parents may want to read the books with their younger children and make it clear that the Greek and Roman gods aren’t real.

Inappropriate content: Very little.

My thoughts: I love this book! It’s the first book in a spin off series to Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Leo is awesome! He has the saddest backstory of any demigod in the books, but he’s so wonderful and funny and sarcastic.

Sequels: The Son of Neptune, The Mark of Athena, The House of Hades, and The Blood of Olympus.
