Book review
The Heroes of Olympus-The Lost Hero is an excellent book combined with mythology and adventure, written by the No.1 bestseller, Rick Riordan. The Heroes of Olympus-The Lost Hero is the opening book to the series Heroes of Olympus, which is a sequel to the magnificent series of books, Percy Jackson. The Heroes of Olympus-The Lost Hero is the book, where the main character Percy Jackson, the son of the Greek sea god Poseidon, goes missing and the son of the Roman god Jupiter, Jason is introduced.

The complication of this book is the fact that Gaia, the Earth goddess, is trying to take over the world. Even though The Heroes of Olympus-The Lost Hero is just the beginning to the series, the book was sensational. With a great plotline and such descriptive language, you can dare say The Heroes of Olympus-The Lost Hero can be classed as one of the greatest book of the 21st century.

The Heroes of Olympus-The Lost Hero is a superb book that is unpredictable and is never dull. I loved how Rick has expressed his imaginations and crazy ideas into a 551 paged book. I truly praise Rick Riordan’s extraordinary skills of writing. I believe that this...
