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 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.

    This was an very good adaptation and a very good graphic novel. I didn't know what to expect because I was so disappointed with the Lightening Thief graphic novel, and the second book was better but not great. But this was a great story and a lot of fun. The story was easy to follow, had a lot of exciting moments, had humor and heart the way Riordan's books are supposed to and was just what it should have been.

And it's really substantive, it's a thick book that takes a while to read, there's a lot of story there. I'm sure purists would quibble about what was left out, but it felt like a very good adaptation that hit the high notes of the book, from what I remember. And it felt like people who haven't read the book would be able to make sense of it, which was not a feeling that I got at all from the first two Lightening Thief graphic novels. The art was serviceable, not great but it got the job done. It's a shame he can't draw pretty woman though. Annabeth was just unattractive, the goddess of love and beauty herself looked like a middle-aged soccer mom, and poor Piper was often quite odd looking, even when she had her mother's (unwanted) blessing. There were a lot of unattractive or bland faces, really. By unattractive I mean weirdly scrunched or shaded or or shaped in ways that seemed inconsistent with the character, not a judgement about their prettiness. But despite being occasionally distracting, overall the art was fine. It was a very enjoyable book that I would recommend for fans and for newbies alike.

    Ugh, I did not like this book at all. First of all, the art is about as far from my style as it's possible to get. None of the characters look right, but I guess that's just a matter of opinion. Second, almost all the humor from Rick Riordan is cut out. I understand it's hard to include everything in a graphic novel, but still, it wouldn't be that hard to add some of the jokes and light-hearted banter so the story doesn't just drag on and on. And drag on and on it did. If you liked The Lost Hero Ugh, I did not like this book at all. First of all, the art is about as far from my style as it's possible to get.

    Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson. The artist captured everything perfectly and I wish the other books were made into graphic novels so I could binge all of them. This is one of the first graphic novels I have read and it was so perfect I want to read more graphic novels. So much quicker than reading the books, but gave you a similar experience. Totally going to get my hands on The Lightning Theif to see Percy. The art was stunning and the storyline was 100% accurate, so 100 recommend from me.

    The Lost Hero: A Graphic Novel is a wonderful story by Rick Riordan.

They kept majority of the conversations and let the art speak for the detailed descriptions. One of the pages in the graphic novel is when Annabeth is flying Jason, Leo, and Piper back to Camp Half-Blood and you get a wonderful layout of the camp from above. There is no need to go on for a few pages describing the camp when you can see the lay out so clearly. Any of the half or full page spreads were my favorite because the art was able to show the reader so much detail. It is nice to be able to read the book and imagine the scenes yourself, but it is also really nice to soak in all the detail that a picture can give to the reader and add to the understanding of the scene. Graphic novels are fast passed and you can get through the story quick! The drawings are well done and you are able to see the characters and understand them very well. This graphic novel compares well to the book that it is based off of, and allows the reader of the graphic novel to understand everything that the reader of the book knows about. So if you really enjoy graphic novels and want to learn more about the Percy Jackson Series then pick up this book!

    I bought this one purely because I am a Percy Jackson fan. While I love, LOVE the original series, this rendition didn't do much justice to Rick Riordan's flawless writing.

    Some stuff was missing but considering the original book is huge i think they summed it up pretty well. As for the art, it was true to the way i pictured the characters in my head

    This book is about a boy named Jason. Jason wakes up on a bus not knowing anything, not even his girlfriend or best friend, but worse, he doesn't remember who he is. He and his girlfriend, Piper, and his best friend Leo soon find out that they are demigods, or a half blood. This means that one of their parents is a greek god or goddess. Soon they find out that Piper's mom is Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty, Leo's dad is Hephaestus the god of blacksmiths, and Jason's dad is Zeus king of This book is about a boy named Jason.

Soon they find out that Piper's mom is Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty, Leo's dad is Hephaestus the god of blacksmiths, and Jason's dad is Zeus king of the gods. Soon they realize that Hera, Zeus's goddess wife, has been captured, and the three of them have been chosen by Hera herself to find and free her. They go through many obstacles, like when they met Medea, a evil woman who is immortal and have to escape two dragons and defeat Medea herself. They also catch some storm spirits, and bring them to the weather man who tells the gods what the weather will be like. Finally when they find Hera, it is almost too late, a giant born from Gaea, who was born to destroy Zeus is waking and they must rescue Hera before it is all over. Finally Piper and Leo release a Hera from her cage while Jason is keeping the giant busy, and through a burst of rage, Hera destroys the giant and buys them some time, for a monster of that sort can only be killed by a god or goddess and a half blood. The three still know that they will be up for a fight, but right now they need to find Percy Jackson, who has been sent to the Roman god camp, where Jason is supposed to be, and does not know who he is either, just like Jason. This book was really good to read and I really liked it. I think it relates to a Land of Stories book which is called The Grimm warning.

    The graphic novel of the lost hero was awesome and very interactive.I felt as if I were there with the characters because of the pictures.Once I started reading this book I did not want to let go of it.I recommend this book to people who like fiction books and comic like structured books.If you also like greek mythology books you should definitely read this book.As you can see The Lost Hero book 1 is a great and well written book.

    This was boring and choppy. The scenes didn't flow. If I hadn't read the actual book I would have had no idea what was going on. Two stars for the nice art.

    • Characters appear older than they are • Can't exactly understand what's going on if you just read the graphic version, but a good recap for those who have read the novels • More detailed than the PJO versions, so there's that?

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The Lost Hero: The Graphic Novel (The Heroes of Olympus: The Graphic Novels, #1) by Rick Riordan is an amazing book! The graphics in the comic-like pictures really help the reader picture their actions in the novel as in the book they are frozen(because they are pictures). I really liked when Piper, Leo, Coach Hedge the Satyr, and Jason try to fight the venti while at the Grand Canyon. I was though a little disappointed when Coach Hedge got captured and was frozen in Medea's mall/lair.

I was very happy reading this book because I got to actually see what the characters look like from the original book and it makes the story more exciting than it already is. This book reminds me of the Percy Jackson series because The Lost Hero mentions Percy and his last adventures and Piper,Jason, and Leo got to meet Annabeth [Percy's Girlfriend] (The Heroes of Olympus is basically the Percy Jackson series continued but with more than on main character) I would recommend this book to people 9 and older; I would also like to recommend reading the Percy Jacson series to understand the plot and how the old characters from the same world ( Clarisse La Rue, Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, etcetera) are like.
