My feelings towards The Lost Hero are mixed, maybe because my expectations were so high for the continuation of Percy Jackson - a series that I love and hold close to my heart. Gone is Percy's sarcastic first person narration, gone is the focus on our favorite characters, and even Percy himself is gone. It was a bit jarring to get used to at first, but in the end, I liked it.
It's just not what I had in mind for a Percy Jackson book.
The good: there's still the wonderful myths that are tied up in modern day settings, and we're introduced to some new characters, including Jason Grace, who I didn't find anywhere near as fun as Percy. I found Leo to be my favorite of the new characters - his sarcasm worked for me and I'm always a fan of the underdog.
All in all it was good, just a jarring change for me. I've picked up the Son of Neptune, where Percy comes back (yay!). So we'll see what happens.
The frustrating part comes in when Riordan hints at Percy, barely touches on Annabeth, and only involves Thalia a little bit in the story. Annabeth shows up at the beginning, and throughout the whole book everyone talks about Percy, but you don't find out what happened to him until the end. And then you're just left worrying about what his experience has been like for the time frame of this book, and won't possibly be able to find out until the next is released next fall. A minor problem, considering this series is supposed to be about a different set of characters, but a frustrating one all the same if you love the original Percy Jackson characters.
Really, this is an amazing book for people of all ages if you like to laugh out loud when you're reading, and enjoy a good adventure story!
