Percy Jackson fans will not be disappointed with Rick Riordan’s The Lost Hero. The first series creatively wove a modern young adult fiction tale with Greek mythology. My children waited with excitement for each book to be released.
Riordan topped himself with this first book of the second series. Rather than merely continuing with the Greek mythology theme, he has found a way to successfully introduce the Roman aspects into the story with more humor than ever before. I don’t think my eight year old has laughed quite so much at a book we have read together. One liners have popped up everywhere in our lives, creating literary jokes which our family adores. I’m excited to see where this second series goes, and my children can hardly wait for the next book.
