Review:

So far, I’ve loved every Rick Riordan book I’ve read. THE LOST HERO was no exception! I came into it with high expectations because I loved the Percy Jackson series, and the book did an excellent job balancing familiar characters with a new team of fun, believable heroes. It didn’t take long to start cheering for Jason, Leo and Piper! Riordan’s ability to intertwine humor, heart and action shines through.

The expanded cast of characters is a lot of fun—Leo is my favorite (If he and Sadie Kane got together, I’d never stop laughing. Those two!)—and I always admire Riordan’s ability to fit so much action, info and humor on the page. He makes me ignore my “one more chapter” rule all the time.

I read MARK OF ATHENA and HOUSE OF HADES back-to-back, and I’m starting Blood of Olympus now. These last couple books have really brought the nail-biting stakes! This series is one of those where I don’t want to finish because I can’t bear to leave the characters behind.
