The Lost Hero

Jason wakes up sitting in the back of a bus, holding a girls hand. He has no clue how he got there or anything about himself. At first his two best friends, Piper and Leo think he is joking. Until the Venti come and try to toss them off the side of the Grand Canyon and their coach turns out to be a goat. Then, they don't know what to believe.

The book as a lot of great references to Greek and Roman mythology. I love learning about the mythology but also reading an adventure book. The Persy Jackson series focused just on Greek, but this one starts to veer towards Roman and you begin to realize maybe there are more demigods out there...but Roman ones.

The three Demigods that go on the adventures seem a bit reminiscent of the Persy Jackson trio. Two boys and one girl. One of the boys and the girl in a relationship. It would have been nice if he switched it up a bit with maybe two girls and a guy or four demigods. These three seem to be much more powerful than Persy and his friends were.

There was a lot of action and adventure but it didn't seem to peak my interest. I always knew it was coming it just seemed like the same old same old. But, I enjoyed the new characters and the new Roman mythology along with the Greek.
