Description



About the Book



"Adapted from the novel The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero"--Copyright page.



Book Synopsis



Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea--except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?

Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all--including Leo--related to a god.



Review Quotes



PRAISE FOR THE LIGHTNING THIEF, THE GRAPHIC NOVEL

Venditti takes the story of the half-blood Percy...and forges an adaptation that does justice not simply to Riordan's story but works perfectly as a graphic novel. The book retains the excellent pacing of the original and gives a face to Riordan's vision of the mythological made modern.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

PRAISE FOR THE LOST HERO

Riordan's storytelling is as polished as ever, brimming with wit, action, and heart--his devotees won't be disappointed.--Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR THE MARK OF ATHENA

With a true storyteller's sense of pacing, Riordan creates another compelling adventure, right down to the cliff-hanger at the end.--Booklist Online

PRAISE FOR THE SEA OF MONSTERS, THE GRAPHIC NOVEL

Both high in quality and sure to be popular, this is a first purchase.--SLJ

PRAISE FOR THE SON OF NEPTUNE

Son of Neptune is yet another absorbing and exciting addition to Riordan's chronicles.--VOYA

PRAISE FOR THE TITAN'S CURSE, THE GRAPHIC NOVEL

No fan will be able to turn this down.--Booklist
