Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper. His best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids”, as Leo puts it. What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea — except that everything seems very wrong.
Piper has a secret. Her father, a famous actor, 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.
I just recently found out that My favorite Mythology Author had another Percyish series…Well..since they said it’s a bit like that. And Since I looooove. Percy Jackson Series <333333 I will go beyond anything just to have this one (okay that’s exaggeration ;))
The first thing I thought when I read the title is “Percy? Is he lost or something?” well since we all know that percy is in RR’s last series. I was excited to meet the new characters...:]
Moving on to my review. I was a bit reluctant to accept the new heroes of the new series. It was hard for me to even accept that they got thicker books to read to! And We could to know their views! I know I sounded so bitter but I just love PJ series, you know!
But WHY?!! WHYY?! Why did you make it like this?? You made me love your other book instead of hate it! WHY?? MR RIORDAN!!!
I have to admit. Mr. Riordan isn’t the best novelist around. But he definitely has the most funniest humor in town! I can’t help but laugh so hard to his jokes. And my mom would wonder what had happened to me because awhile ago I was quietly reading the book then suddenly I burst out laughing and can’t seem to stop it.
I can’t also help but also feel bad about percy not being part of this series. I JUST MISS HIM. But I am glad that some old characters remain in the series. But that just made it worse.
The New characters weren’t so bad. Infact they are funny. They are easy to like. But you know…someone who has grown reading percy’s adventure. I can’t help but compare the book.
The plot is intense. But the idea of Jason losing his memory does not give me any new feeling. Maybe because it’s my first time meeting him as well. So as he regain his lost memory that’s also the part where I am able to know him more. And also I help but hate him. His arrival in the series being so cool and powerful all of a sudden was “WOAH!” …but I can’t also help but wonder what his background is.
Piper and Leo were cool. Being so wise and good and techy stuff made me think that they are great group!
And being introduced to Roman camp was another good thing about this book. At least we get to know that camp half-blood is not the only existing camp for demigods but also there is a counterpart. Which made me even more curious.
The ENDING WAS SO..!!! not..COOL! SERIOUSLY?! PERCY?! AS IN?!! NOOOOOOOOOO!
Now it made me feel so anxious.
