DescriptionJason 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. Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on? Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all-including Leo-related to a god. Rick Riordan, the best-selling author of the Percy Jackson series, pumps up the action and suspense in The Lost Hero, the first book in The Heroes of Olympus series. Fans of demi-gods, prophesies, and quests will be left breathless--and panting for Book Two.

Reviews for The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero
Really good book
This books was amazing. I really loved and enjoy it. Rick Riordan knows how to write. The heroes of olympus is a series i will continue to read. i love the percy jackson books. But i think you should read percy jackson series before you read this one. You will understand better this series then.
But if you have not pick this book up yet i think you should definitely give it a try. by Olivia Borgström Ålstig

Jason has no idea who he is or how he ended up on a bus going on a field trip for The Wilderness School. The two people he wakes up next to, Pyper and Leo, claim to be his friends, but he has no recollection of who they are.
When the group he's with arrives at the Grand Canyon, strange things start happening. Jason has a run-in with Wind Spirits, but has no idea how he knows that's what they are. During their life-and-death battle with the spirits, Coach Hedge, the teacher in charge who turns out to have goat legs, gets taken away by the creatures. Shortly after, a girl and a group of followers show up on winged beasts and whisk them off to a place called Camp Half-Blood.
The three soon discover that they are demigods. Jason is the son of Zeus (but he keeps calling him Jupiter, Zeus' Roman name), Pyper is the daughter of Aphrodite, and Leo is the son of Hephaestus. Still coming into their powers, the three are whisked away on a quest. Their mission: find the missing Hera before the Giant King (the Greek gods' greatest enemy) raises a force so evil that mankind will be utterly doomed.
The trio only has three days and has only one clue to go on: find Boreas, the god of the North Wind. Will Pyper, Leo, and Jason be able to save the world? Will Jason ever figure out who he really is? Who really took his memories? Why does he keep calling gods by their Roman names?
A great new addition to the PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS series. The characters are well-developed, the plot is thick and mysterious, and the action is intense. Although the story will make more sense once the reader has read the first five books in the original series, those who are fans of Rick Riordan, mythology, fantasy, and adventure will all enjoy reading THE LOST HERO. by TeensReadToo
