Book Review: The Lost Hero

Title: The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus Series, Book One)
Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: MG Commercial Fiction (Action, Fantasy)
Rating: A+

140-Character Summary: A whole new class of demigods is on the scene to finish what Percy and friends started. And they're more messed-up than the last lot.

First 140 Characters of the Book: "Even before he got electrocuted, Jason was having a rotten day. He woke in the backseat of a school bus, not sure where he was, holding..." (p.7/392, NOOK).

140-Character Review: I think Jason and his pals have better powers than the original series' heroes, and the Roman demigod angle freshens up and expands the story.

140-Character Recommendation/Market Placement/Entry Point: Fans of Rick Riordan, hop on board for another great series.
