Cuando Jason despierta, sabe que algo va muy mal. Está en un autobús camino de un campamento para chicos problemáticos. Y le acompañan Piper —una muchacha (bastante guapa, por cierto) que dice que es su novia— y el que parece ser su mejor amigo, Leo… Pero él no recuerda nada: ni quién es ni cómo ha llegado allí. Pocas horas después, los tres descubrirán no solo que son hijos de dioses del Olimpo, sino además que su destino es cumplir una profecía de locos: liberar a Hera, diosa de la furia, de las garras de un enemigo que lleva mucho tiempo planeando su venganza… ENGLISH DESCRIPTION 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. 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. Fans of demi-gods, prophesies, and quests will be left breathless–and panting in anticipation for Book Two. The accessible and dramatic cover art by graphic novelist Nilah Magruder will attract a new generation of readers.
