The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, Book One)

Book 1, The Heroes of Olympus

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea-except that everything seems very wrong.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 25, 2010 – Percy Jackson fans can rest easy: this first book in Riordan's Heroes of Olympus spin-off series is a fast-paced adventure with enough familiar elements to immediately hook those eager to revisit his modern world of mythological mayhem. Clever plot devices—like gods who shift back and forth between their Greek and Roman personae—keep the book from feeling like a retread of Riordan's previous novels. Jason, Piper, and Leo, three students at a wilderness school for troubled teens, are transported to Camp Half-Blood after an unexpected encounter with evil storm spirits on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Not only do they discover that they are the offspring of ancient gods, but they also learn that they are three of seven demigods mentioned in the Great Prophecy uttered by Rachel in The Last Olympian. Wasting little time acclimating to their new lives, the three embark upon a quest to preserve Mt. Olympus and the divine status quo, by rescuing an erstwhile enemy. Rotating among his three protagonists, Riordan's storytelling is as polished as ever, brimming with wit, action, and heart—his devotees won't be disappointed. Ages 10–up.

Customer Reviews


This book is amazing because it not only includes new character but it also includes old characters like Percy and Annabeth. Rick Riordan has once again stunned us with his amazing ability to weave a perfectly suspenseful tale. A must buy.


Ladies and gentlemen Rick Riordan has done it again...
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!! As a huge Percy Jackson fan, I have been waiting for this since it was announced. Yes I was a little worried that it would pale in comparison to the original - BUT IT IS SOOO GOOD!!! I bought it yesterday when it came out and I just finished reading it. Riordan has managed to stay true to his original theme from the Percy Jackson series while adding a huge new dynamic to the world of the heroes and Olympians. Plus, the new characters are great (I love Jason ;) and Piper too!) and we get to catch up with our favorites!! I cannot wait for the next installment - fall long from now but in the mean time buy buy buy!!!!

Great sequel to the titan war!

This book has the same rythm as the previous five. Start reading and you are quickly absorbed by the harmonically pulsating story. The protagonists are new but only for a little time. Immerse yourself again in the modern antique mythology.
