It is related to the Percy Jackson series and Rick Riordan also worked some of the old characters into this series though
http://www.camphalfblood.com/ go to this website to get a sneak peak at the new book rick riordan is writing the password is new hero
This is supposed to be like Percy Jackson series!
the password isn't working
Is this the lightning Thief except with a different name and different characters???
NO!!!!!!! its about percy getting lost (Thats why its called "the lost hero") so more ppl r trying to find him...
nope!!!!!! it's a totally different story you sould got to camphalfblood.com and read the sneak peek the password is "new hero"
No. It a new series with most of the same subject. It has some of the characters from the Percy Jackson series worked into it though.

read the sea of monsters. this one is the first book of the second series. the actual percy jackson series is the lightning thief, sea of monsters, titan's curse, battle of the labrynith, and the last olympian. the lost hero is the first of the second series, don't read it until you finish the percy jackson series, i don't want it to get spoiled for you!
sea of monsters is next, then titan's curse, than battle of the laberynth then finally the last olymian
the sea of monsters is book 2
I haven't read his book yet but i read the first two chapters and i'm already hooked.
is this book as good as the lightning thief?
cant wait for the Son of Neptune!!!
i just read it and it was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i cant belive son of neptune doenst come out for like another year
That was my question..... But no one told me about the book we have differen opinions on book wether we like it or not so we got to try to read it.....
I haven't heard anything bad about this book and I personally loved it, but a lot of people didn't like his other book, The Red Pyramid, which came out recently. It wasn't that good.
it was great! awsome! i rad it 2 days ago and i am still shaking about how good it was!!!
i know right
I am loving the book and I still have a long way to go
I love this book!
Dear half-blood wannabes,
Its time ur dream is fullfilled.
Go to my homepage and send me a note if you want to join an amazing Camp Half-Blood rpg.
We are losing half-bloods fast, and we need you.
I just got this book today for my birthday. I cant wait to read it!
is this book good???
i do and it is great!!!!!!!!! you should totally read it! i got it less that 2 weeks ago and ive already read it twice!!! it is longer that the other books but it feels like you sped through it!
this has been the best book i have read it took me like at least 2 weeks to read it and the lkast line and i quote"Percy Jackson is at the other camp,and he probably dosen't even remember who he is" I'm thirsty for more i can't stand to wait that long. fall2011 for the next book The son of neptune.
I can't wait for the Son of Neptune and other Rick Riordan Books
I MET THE AUTHOR AND HE SAID I HAD AN AWESOME NAME (Rachel Elizabeth)
You really met Rick Riordan!? Did you get him to sign the book?
JEALOUSY OF YOU MEETING RICK RIORDAN!!!!!!!!!!!! XD Was he awesome? (Duh, of course he was.)
I'm so insanely jealous!!!
it is. it is a littel boring in the begening but when you get in the book it is good
Anyone think Hera might be behind Percy's memory lost? Or Circe? After all, if Medea came back from the dead, then I think she's fair game. Heck, I'll even go out on a limb and speculate that Aphrodite might be behind it. Why her? I think I recall that she told Percy she likes tragic romances. She might've done it just to make the romance tragic.
I have a hamster named percy! Is this book good? I just bought it!
you just got started it can get more and more beter the farther you get the beter it gets so keep reading
ho is the kid in the front
Jason Leo and Piper
I just started reading and its good so far
Is this a good book.? is it good as the other ones????
ITS AMAZING EVEN BETTER A MUST READ I LOVED IT I VOTE IT THE BEST
Read it the day it came out, I also got the book signed by Rick Riordan! Can't wait until Son of Neptune!
me too im sooo happy and good 4 you about the sign ing (in a good way)
I can't wait to read it.
I want to read it now.
Victoria, I'm so jealous! You honestly have no idea! I hope I get a book signed by Rick Riordan one day! This is such a good book! The only thing I don't like is having to wait almost a whole year for Son of Neptune.
not exactly a year, just till the fall
I cant beleive the percy jackson thing. What is he doing? Does he have a girl friend? And what about Jason? What will happen to him?
must. read. this. again.
I love this book. I want to be the son of DEMETER and ATHENA
I LOVE this book! I've already read it 3 times and I'm tempted to do it again. THe thing i HATE most is having to wait like a year for The Son of Neptune. I hate waiting! Someone tell Rick Riordan to write faster! jk JK!!!
ikr!!!!! hes in the middle of 2 different series so i guess the Kane Chronicles will come out evey year in April and Heroes of Olympus will come out every year in October. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR I am NOT a patient person!! jkjk
hahah same i want it so bad!
I want to now how many people have read this book?
I like Piper, she's the most likeable person from the Ahprodite cabin since Silena Beauragard.
Hmmm.... I wonder who the son of Neptune is...? lol (4 those of u who don't get it, I'm being sarcastic.)
LONG LIVE PERCY!!! i hope he doesn't find a new gf...!
oh hahaha, yeah I didn't catch that sarcasm at first. I was worried about him getting a new girlfriend too. And there's also the fact that Jason said he remembered some people from the other camp, but he still can't remember if he was more than friends with one of the girls. I really hope all that works out.
He so will LOL!
No spilling the beans on the ending..not yet finished alright. I look forward to the 2nd books of this one and the Red pyramid of the Kane children
The Red Pyramid is AWESOME! xD
I screamed at some parts because it was so exciting and I couldn't put the book down!
I pray to god that Percy doesn't find a new girlfriend. If he does my heart will break for Annabeth! Fall 2011 is too far away! Who agrees?
I agree vehemently. I really don't think Rick Riordan would have Percy get a new boyfriend. That would be too hard to fix.
oh my god, if percy finds a new girlfriend, i will have to murder someone (not really, i'm just sarcastic like that)
I sooooooooooo agree.
I hope so! And I have to see the character Reyna before I decide who's better for Jason.
I think that'd be kinda stupid. Who knows? Maybe Reyna is another child of Zeus. Or Jupiter, I guess.
who's Reyan? that person wasnt in The Lost Hero....
Oh, you meant Reyna!! She's another girl Jason knows isnt she? The other girl from the Roman camp, i remember now.
Please don't give anything away!!! I haven't read it yet and I am really excited about reading it!!!!!!!
heyyy guys! i am doing a project on this book. so i need to make a map of their quest... any suggestions?
Well, they go from New York to Chicago to San Francisco then back to New York, right?
jason and piper are cool
IS THIS A GOOD BOOK PEYTON?????
this is an amazing book more people read it lots of action and adventure
This book is really good. I wish I had a pet metal dragon.
This book is amazing. I would say that it is just as good as the Percy Jackson series, and it has a lot of the old characters too, but with a new twist. Rick Riordan outdoes himself every time.
How many pages does this book have? I'm reading it on a Kindle, and I can't find out how many pages it has from that.
nice book but could do with a little more action
You think it needs more action? Why? It wasn't enough fighting storm spirits, a nothern wind god, 3 cyclops, an evil sorceress, another wind god, 2 giants, and mother earth? Not to mention that Hera almost killed Jason.
Seriously, not enough action? St. Francis De Sales is right, with all the monsters, Giants, GODs, and ancient evil mortals trying to kill Leo, Jason, and Piper how can you say there could be a little more action? One of the best parts was with Medea and Festus (trying not to spoil anything). I mean come on, a great book with plenty of action. It keeps you involved and wanting to know exactly Jason's past. If you are up on your mythology, picking up on some of Jason's past is pretty simple but you are still compelled to know every little detail.
I know what you mean. I feel like we still don't know a lot of Jason's past. Those names he starts mentioning at the end just make you more curious about who those people are.
good book :)
I read it twice!!!!!!!!
It's spelled "fanatic" not "finatic" just fyi. I figure that was probably just a typo. And I read it twice too!!! It was a good book, wasn't it? So is the Hunger Games Trilogy. I also consider myself a Hunger Games fanatic :)
does jason actually like camp half-blood??
Yeah, Jason really likes camp half-blood. He feels like everyone really accepted him.
I know where Percy is!
No way. hes at the roman camp
The next book is called the son of Neptune!
Yup, obviously it's about Percy.
I wonder if Percy is going to have brothers or sisters in the Roman camp. That would be interesting.
Poseidon did jokingly suggest that Percy had half-blood siblings at the end of The Last Olympian. I assume that the "Son of Neptune" refers to a brother and not to Percy, son of Poseidon.
Yeah, that totally makes sense. Percy wouldn't exactly be a son of Neptune, just like Jason is a son of Jupiter, not Zeus, if that makes sense.
I take it back. Rick's website says that following: "Who are the other four mentioned in the prophesy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea."
I think that he will. I mean Posiden must have had other kids. I can't wait for the next book!
What did you think of Hera's plan? Do you think it'll work?
Why didn't any of the heroes bat an eye when Janus, Roman god of doorways (who has no Greek equivalent), was introduced in the previous series?
Janus is Roman? =(
Yes, he is.
I wondered what Riordan was doing when he put Janus in the labyrinth. Introducing an exclusively Roman god suggested that at least part of the Roman pantheon somehow co-existed with the Greek pantheon. The Lost Hero clears up some of the questions posed by Janus's presence, but we still have no answer as to why the heroes did not seem surprised when he identified himself.
did they know that he was a roman god?
My book is 600 miles away from me. Someone else will have to look up whether they identify him as Roman. I only remember them referring to him as a "minor god." That said, I would be shocked if none of them knew Janus was Roman and not Greek. I knew Janus was a Roman god when I was in middle school, and unlike the heroes of the series, I had nothing except my own enjoyment invested in learning classical mythology. It's a matter of life and death for them.
may be it was a set up to this series or a strange coincidence.
do you think this book is better than percy jackson
No, I think this book is probably AS good as Percy Jackson, but if I had to say one was better than the other, I'd say Percy Jackson was better.
The Percy Jackson series was better. The charm of that series, at least for me, was in Percy's narration. The Lost Hero's third person narration didn't have the same sparkle, and it fell flat by comparison.
I like this book way more than the original series. I like the characters better. I cannot wait until the next one comes out!
Yes. It is way better!!!!!
who's your favorite character
I wonder if percy is going to be friends with jason
I bet they will be. I think they'd be pretty good friends actually.
Percy is good friends with Thalia. I don't see why he can't be friends with her brother.
I think it'll be somewhat like Thalia and Percy
I don't know. Jason just doesn't seem like the type to butt heads with others very often, while Thalia and Percy butt heads quite a bit, even if they are good friends.
Jason's personality is more like Jupiter's, whereas Thalia is clearly Zeus' daughter. The major gods of the Roman pantheon tend to be less wild and less volatile than their Greek counterparts. If anyone would like to see a great example of the differences between the two groups, check out the Psyche and Cupid story embedded in Apuleius' The Golden Ass and compare that narrative with any instance of a gathering of the gods in The Iliad. The different depictions speak volumes about the differences in culture between the Greeks and the Romans.
I thought Clovis said the Roman gods were more hostile and warlike.
I haven't checked, but I believe he did. What of it?
All right, why do you like him? I like Jason, but Piper and Leo grate on my nerves. Cute goat, by the way.
How could you not like Piper? She's awesome, especially for a child of Aphrodite. And I feel really bad for Leo because of his mom dying and him always feeling unimportant, like the odd man out. Sure, he can be kinda annoying sometimes, but I still think he'd be a good friend.
This is the Wilderness School. 'Where the Kids are animals'
oooh what if percy falls in love with someone from the roman halfbloods camp?
I really, really hope that does NOT happen!!!
I don't think so
um annabeath would kill him...
If that happens, that would be great! I totally support Percy and Annabeth, but what if Jason had a girlfriend back in the Roman camp? Since he's with Piper now, Percy falling in love with a girl from the Roman camp would be plausible, and would make the book very interesting. ]:D
Percy would never do that. He is kind and even though he is an awesome warrior he is not the same as the Roman war-like demigods and their godly Roman parents. I think he is going to have to fight very hard in order to survive the other camp, but I think he will stay the same therefore he could never fall in love with anyone other than Annabeth. As for Jason, I am happy the thought of having a girlfriend at the other camp crossed his mind. I love Piper's character, but I think Jason is being very honorable in just being friends until all of his memory comes back.
will they be able to ever be build the flying boat?
I don't think it's so much a question if they'll be able to or not. The question is if they can build it in time.
my favorite character is piper.
Yeah, she's awesome for a daughter of Aphrodite.
My favourite character would either be piper or leo.
Didn't you like Jason?
Percy is a traitor!!!
WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? What on earth makes you say that Percy is a traitor?!?!?!?!?!?!?
WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Percy is NOT a traitor!!!!!! How could you even say something like that?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Saint Francis, don't bother replying to someone who thinks "Nicole" is a one of the demigod children of the Big Three :P (Check out jeffrey's review of The Titan's Curse.) He clearly missed a major point or two in the series.
Maybe he means Nico.
Percy is so not a traitor!!!
First off percy is not a traitor the same thing happened to him what happened to jason, if anything one of the gods is trying to bring them together (romans, and greeks) to fight the titans. Or a titan is trying to get them to kill each other so the gods will have to stop cowering on thier MT. and fight. And leo is by far the coolest.
Have you not read the book? It explains that Hera is the one behind the scheme to unite the Romans and the Greeks. And I think Piper is the coolest.
I love a few sections of this book, such as the Midas golden touch section. I can't wait for book 2!
I liked that part too! I actually liked the Chicago part more though.
I believe I liked this book better than the Percy Jackson series. Though still written for a younger crowd it definitely had more adult contexts to it. Great book!
I liked this book equally to Percy Jackson. After all, it's practically part of the Percy Jackson series.
I think I agree with you. I felt this book was better than the Percy Jackson series (even though this book is pretty much just an extension of the PJ series). I felt this book moved allot quicker and that it was jam-packed with action and adventure all the time. In the PJ books there were some chapters where things were dragged out and a little tedious to get through.
Hey everybody. The cover art and the first chapter for The Son of Neptune are available for your viewing pleasure on Rick Riordan's webpage. Just thought you'd all like to know :)
OHMYGOSH!!!! Thank you!! I don't know about you, but I am SO excited about this book!!!!! :D
Riodan's books are awsome
percy is so not the traitor!!!!! i dont think any one is.
I love this book it was so interesting and jason does have a girlfriend another camp. It says in the next book.
Yeah, but she is not exactly his girlfriend. She could have been if he hadn't have left when he did, but that is quite impossible now.
This book is for little KIDS!!!!!!!!
