The Lost Hero

Series: Heroes of Olympus (Book #1)
by Rick Riordan

Meet the New Half-Bloods in the World of Percy Jackson & the Olympians!

There's a whole new group of heroes at Camp Half-Blood, the summer camp for kids who are half human, half Greek god. In this first book in the new series, we learn that after defeating the evil Titan Lord Kronos, Percy Jackson and his friends rebuilt Camp Half-Blood for the next generation of demigods. Now these new half-bloods are facing a deadly prophecy of their own — and to fulfill the dangerous quest they must undertake, they'll need the help of some familiar demigods!

As he did in Percy Jackson & the Olympians, author Rick Riordan mixes classic Greek mythology with modern adventure in this action-packed series that will keep readers turning the pages — and may spark an interest in the original myths!
