Jason has a problem.
He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper, and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?
Piper has a secret.
Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare about his being in trouble. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits during the school trip, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.
Leo has a way with tools.
When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about, and some camper who;s gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god. Does this have anything to do with Jason’s amnesia, or the fact that Leo keeps seeing ghosts?
This shouldn’t really be a surprise that I’m recommending this one, I have already recommended his Percy Jackson and The Olympians series, which this one is a spin-off for. You don’t have to read that one first, but really why wouldn’t you WANT to? In this one you still get Percy and Annabeth, but you also get a ton of new characters. AND we FINALLY get ROMAN DEMI-GODS. Yes I said that right. ROMAN DEMI-GODS. WOOOOOOO! Camp Jupiter is amazing, and trust me you WANT to read ALL about it, which you get to do in The Son of Neptune. So go pick up The Lightning Thief if you haven’t read the PJO series and start there, if you have read that one then get on reading The Lost Hero. Shooo, go, read. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
