Publisher's Summary

Rick Riordan, the best-selling author of the Percy Jackson series, pumps up the action and suspense in The Lost Hero, the first book in The Heroes of Olympus series. 

"Riordan extends the franchise in a logical direction while maximizing the elements that made the first series so popular: irreverent heroes, plenty of tension-filled moments fighting monsters, and authentic classical mythology mixed in with modern life."—Horn Book 

A New York Times best-seller 

A spin-off of the blockbuster Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, but stands on its own 

Combines Roman and Greek mythology 

Told from the points of view of a diverse cast of demigods 

Memorable characters, witty dialogue, and non-stop action have made this series popular across the globe 

Perfect for middle grade listeners but can be enjoyed by older listeners, too 

Jason has a problem. He doesn't remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she's his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they're all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for "bad kids." What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong. 

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he's in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn't recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on? 

Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What's troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper's gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all—including Leo—related to a god. 

Fans of demigods, prophecies, and quests will be left breathless—and panting for Book Two.

I love the story, but...

I've read the books but I wanted to try to listen to it... the narrators for Jason and Leo are good, the one gor piper is horrible. shes constantly mispronounced words, and the way she's telling pipers story is like nails on a chalkboard.

Voice acting is…interesting

I’ve yet to feel the need to leave a real review for an audiobook, but I’m less than an hour in and I’m very unsatisfied with the purchase.

The male voice actor was a bit much. His tone and pacing felt far too dramatic for much of the narration in the first chapter. But then the Piper chapter started and I couldn’t believe it was real. The audio quality seemed to drop and the new voice actor’s performance and tone was horrendous. I hate being rude, but the neither the voice nor acting was pleasant to listen to.

The previous series had its highs and lows, with the female characters’ dialogue delivery wholly in the latter category. Still, I would take that over this. I think I might ditch this and read it the old fashion way since Audible is missing the next two audiobooks in the series anyway.

Narration

Overall the narration was really good, but my only critique is how Piper's narrator constantly narrated every sentence as if it was suspenseful.

Missing chapter

So first and foremost, the only decent narrator is the guy who narrated Jason. The girl who narrated Piper was the absolute WORST narrator I’ve ever heard. It made it very hard to listen to. Which is disappointing because the book is actually really amazing. Also, chapter 48 is missing. It goes from 47 to 49 which is very discombobulating. And lastly, if you’re wanting to listen to the whole series, you can’t get book two “the son of Neptune”. Which is extremely aggravating!
