Title: The Lost Hero
   Author: Rick Riordan
   Release Date: October 12th, 2010

     Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?

     Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.

     Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.

My Stance:

     I haven't read anything by Rick Riordan and I love most mythology books. So this is the two worlds colliding and frankly I am not sure. I have to be honest, I am not sure if an early teen book is my style anymore. However, I got a great deal on House of Hades so I forsee a marathon starting. I have a question to everyone that has read or started this series though. Do I need to read the either the Kane Chronicles or Percy Jackson and the Olympians series at all? I just don't want to enjoy the series and nab up either the others and realise the stories are now completely ruined, or start the book and be utterly confused with what's going on.

     The book seems solid, we have mystery surrounding Jason and while I am nearly positive it was caused to him, and somehow it has to do with the antagonist in this book. Piper seems the most intriguing to be honest. Are Jason and Piper just normal people and than find out they aren't or just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Further, who is the protagonist, or is this book going to be split between the three perspectives? It would be interesting, but I am not sure if it'd be appropriate for this book. I'll try it either way.
