Book Review: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

The Lost Hero is the next series of books by Rick Riordan.  This series picks up after the Percy Jackson series ends.  There is a whole new cast of characters, but at least some of the old characters come back in this book.

The book opens with the new characters.  They don’t know they are demi-gods.  Their adventure begins when they’re attacked.  They end up at Camp Half-Blood where the real adventure awaits in the form of a metal malfunctioning dragon, amnesia and a missing father.  Hints of something even bigger than the prophecy in the Percy Jackson make their way into the story as well.

This book feels quite a bit like the Percy Jackson books.  So far that is a good thing in my opinion.  I am a little nervous that there will be too many similarities and ruin the fun of the series by ending up feeling like a rehash of Percy Jackson.  But, as I said, this book avoided that.

I would add this to the list of books to read, particularly if you are a fan of the Percy Jackson series or similar young adult series.
