But I ended up reading this side-by-side with The Son of Neptune (because of Percy :P), and then I finished the whole Heroes of Olympus and came back to finish this book and loved it way more then. Because now I liked Jason and Piper more.
The only saving grace (not Jason, no pun intended) of this book was Leo Valdez! That's it!! Read this book for Leo. He's the only interesting character in this book. And Festus! And 5 minutes of screen time for Camp Half Blood in which you barely see anyone you know. Will is there to deliver two lines and watch Annabeth scream profanities at the Gods! Oh and lots of Aphrodite and Hephaestus cabins.
See first of all the delivery was good the order reached within 24 hours of placing the order.
I loved The Percy Jackson series and after finishing the series with 'The Last Olympian' I was just thinking that now what will I do. I literally loved the series and dedicated my 1 month of the winter holidays just reading the books and ordering the next one from either Amazon or Flipkart.
This book is very good on its own, and we shall not compare it to the Percy Jackson books, and specially the last Olympian which was just freaking awesome.
This book is a little different from PJ books, as it is written in third person unlike Percy Jackson. The Author in this series does not name a chapter like he did in PJ books for e.g in Percy Jackson the chapter would be like ( The Gods Vote How To Kill Us ) - from the Titan's Curse but in Heroes Of Olympus series the chapter is named upon a character like ( Jason ). The book is very well written, if you are reading it right after the Last Olympian you might find it moving slow, but just keep in mind that in that book, things were finishing so the author did not explain a lot whereas in this book he sets up the plot for the heroes of Olympus series.
Finally I would just say that it is a must have books, so just give it a shot!
So on a happy note JUST GO FOR IT. I'm sure this is a great start to the epic series ahead!!!!!!

Jason dosen't know anything aboue his past. He calls all the gods by their roman names and during the campfire Chiron realises that he is the son of Zeus. Rachel says this quest is something to do with Hera.
Gaia the earth mother is waking and she sends the worst monstets to attack Jason and his friends. Meanwhile Annabeth is searching for Percy who has gone missing.
Something that i realy like is that jason is Thalia's long lost brother.
This book is a must read to all percy jacson fans...

I liked the development of the three new demi-gods and they learnt about the ‘other’ world and there own powers. Each of them are unique and fun to read about. I liked the length and the pacing in this book. There is enough story to give a nice amount environment setting while not waffling and slowing the story down. The main story was interesting, which I won’t go into here so as to not spoil it for others.
There is not much in this book that I can think of as disliking. In fact after sitting here for a few minutes and coming up empty for something to say I didn't like, the only thing I could think of was having to wait for the next book in the series to arrive.
I really enjoyed this first book. Which kind of surprised me considering its target audience. The three main characters were interesting and diverse leading to you connecting with them. The story was well paced, with nothing that felt it was added just to increase the word count.
Overall this is a very nice book. I have now placed my order for all of the other books in the series. Lets hope they live up to my expectations after having read thus one.
I would rate this book a 9 out of 10.
I will admit at first, it took some time to get used to the fact that there were new characters. All i could think when I first started was where is Percy, who are these new heroes. However, once i got over my sadness for Percy being missing, I actually like the new characters. Jason a poor soul lost his memories, and thrust into a world he has to remember, with the help of his friends piper and Leo. Also to include Roman aspects, this is actually a welcome addition and I look forward to see how this unfolds. Well done Rick Riordan
Truly an Epic set of stories from the First to the Last!!!
From Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson Books 1-5 plus two more extra books on the Greek Gods and Demigods) and continuing all the way through (Heroes of Olympus Books 1-5).
To end with The Blood of Olympus. An Epic story all the way through, a great coming of age story in beautiful and rich environments full of danger and mystery. A thoroughly cracking read. I loved it so much, I read it twice through. Wonderful.
