What the community says about The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus)
There are no comments yet!
- "I love a good book. My favorites are usually modern day stories about normal people with a little bit of magic thrown in to make it interesting. I originally started reading the Percy Jackson series because my granddaughter liked the movie. So I bought her the series and we read at least a chapter or two every time we spend a few hours together. My girl does most of the reading and I sort of explain the parts or words she doesn't understand. We've almost finished all of the Percy Jackson series. And I must confess, since I read just a bit faster, I've moved onto the Lost Hero series. It started a bit slower than the other books. But as I read the story I found myself wondering how it was going to play out. Greek mythology is just as fascinating as Roman mythology. I like that they're being mixed together and how these series are overlapping. The message I see in both series is one of honesty, and friendship and trust. The concept of right and wrong should be installed into young people at an early age. Age appropriate explanations of actions and consequences. These books have helped my granddaughter, who is just about 8 years old, to learn to think about what will happen once she has said or done something. I'm thankful there are stories that have captured her interest and attention. She is also beginning to understand that the lessons these books are helping her to learn will help her throughout her life!! That is the best compliment I can give to any author and his/her stories. "
- "I wanted to read a good modern adaptation of Greek mythology and found The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus). This is from a very good author that writes really well and has great stories. The story has a lot of greek influence, yet is modern as well. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for greek influence in a story."
- "Though my daughter loved to read when she was first learning, something turned her off of it in first or second grade. She resisted all efforts to get her to read and her grades suffered a little. When I found this series and read a little of it to her, her eyes lit up and she was dying to know what happened. The story will probably suck you in too, even as it turns around a non-reader's attitude toward reading. "
- "The Lost Hero is listed as a good selection for grades 5-9, so I'd say that my 12 year old kid in 6th grade will enjoy this book. He was a fan of the Percy Jackson books by the same author, and generally loves stories that blend social realism and the supernatural. "
- "excellent book to promote in children and adolescents the interest in the mythological era, in addition to encouraging research to know the outcome of the story of piper and her boyfriend, in addition to discovering all the vicissitudes they must go through in order to achieve their final goal what is it to discover what happened with Piper's father"
- "Ever since high school I've been fascinated buy Greek mythology. With thar in mind when i learned about this book i judt had to check it out. Rick , the author did a amazing job. Not once was I bored. I read this book in 2 days because I couldnt put it down. "
- "I found the solution of The Lost Hero when I was searching for best YA books about dragons. The photo of the book shows kids riding on a dragon and the description mentions "flying on a mechanical, 60-foot dragon". I am familiar with this author and know that he is one of the best fantasy YA authors so this is a perfect solution."

- "I had just read Harry Potter and fell in love with the plot and mystical game around it, and I was looking for a new book to read. I picked up The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, Book 1) by Rick Riordan and I don't think it's meant for adults. As a book to read for teens-tweens, it would fit the bill, but for me, it's a no-go."
- " I read this book twenty times and my opinion of the book has changed each time. This was one of my favorite books I read each of the books in chronological order. I started with the Lightning Thief, and ended with the Blood of Olympus. I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series, and loved Heroes of Olympus even more. The book series was amazing and I learned a lot about the Greek and Roman gods, goddesses, Titans, Giants, and etc from it. The book was really well written, the language was very lucid and easy to understand, it was very entertaining; makes you crave to read the sequel.I guarantee you you'll thoroughly enjoy it. ★★★★★"
- "Awesome novels about mythology. I love old greek mythology, and these seem to be pretty accurate in their depiction of the old heroes I've learned about. The author has a way of bringing me back to Olympus and describing it in so much detail, I feel like I'm there. If you like Percy Jackson, I recommend reading these books from the same author."
- "My nephew was coming over the weekend so I wanted to plan something fun for him to do. I know he loves books, especially those about dragons. I decided to search for the best books with dragons, so I could surprise him with something to read. I eventually found "The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus)" and was extremely impressed. Both my nephew and I loved everything about it. The story and the characters were both very well done."
- "I think this book is a great book for young children to read. My grandson brought it with him when he came for a sleepover. He said it was fascinating so I read it after he went to bed. I found that the messages of honesty and friendships portrayed in the book are excellent for readers to capture at a young age. "
- "My daughter absolutely loves the Heroes of Olympus books, and The Lost Hero (the first book in the series) is one of her favorite books of all time. I did read the book myself, and I thought it was just okay, but I also realize that I am out of touch with what today's kids are really interested in reading. I would highly recommend this book based on my daughter's opinion."
- "This is a great novel for teens. It's part of a series and I think any teen into Greek Mythology will love it. I bought it for my niece and she couldn't put it down. The characters and plot draw you right in. From the minute you read about Jason waking up on that bus you'll be hooked!"
- "Although this was a bit more childish than I expected I couldn't help but enjoy this book. The more obscure mythological references will give you knowing chuckles if you can catch them. Sadly those of us more well versed in the Greek Pantheon will find our knowledge spoiling much of the story for us. Still an enjoyable read if your a fan of all things Greek."
- "Smashwords has released some of the most interesting books that I have ever read. I remember reading one of their books over an entire Christmas vacation. This was a long time ago but I don't feel like buying the book over. I think this is an interesting alternative to buying having to rebuy the books. "
- "As someone who loves the Percy Jackson series, I was so excited to crack open this book! It did not disappoint in the slightest. I would not say that magic stories are my favorite, but I really do not think you need to love it in order to enjoy this book. It is just so well-written and I would recommend it for young adults and adults alike!"
