The lost hero

The lost hero is part of a series called the Gods of Olympus. It’s from a series which comes after the Percy Jackson series. It is the first book in the series.

In this series, Roman and Greek Demi-gods have to work together to save the world and to stop the rise of Gaea (Gaea is a Titan and is Mother Earth. Even though Mother Earth is supposed to be good, she isn’t). The first part of Hera’s (Greek Goddess of marriage and the family) plan was to get a Roman Demi-god called Jason (son of Zeus) and make him forget his memory. He is put in a school bus and is sitting with his ‘girlfriend’ and his ‘friend’, Piper (daughter of Aphrodite) and Leo (son of Hephaestus). He doesn’t know these people, but Hera has used the mist to create false memories of him. When everyone gets off the bus, they go on this bridge. When they are on that bridge, some evil wind spirits come and they attack everyone. Piper gets blown over the side of the bridge and Jason shows his power for the first time. He controls the winds and lowers himself down to save Piper. After that, there coach, coach hedge, takes them to camp-half blood. Piper and Leo got claimed by their godly parent and everyone else who’s there was wondering why Jason wasn’t getting claimed but Chiron, a centaur (half horse, half person), tells them that Jason has already been claimed. Jason, Leo and Piper have to go on a quest to save Hera as she’s been taken captor by evil monsters.

This book is really good. I would recommend it to people who are 10+. I think adults would like it as well because most of it is quite fun and lighthearted, apart from when they have battles.

If you do get this book, I really hope you enjoy it!

A place called perfect

The protagonist of A Place called Perfect is a girl called Violet. She has to move to Perfect because Violet’s dad is a dentist. They meet the town leaders of Perfect, George and Edward Archer. They offer them some tea. Violet is reluctant to have any as she doesn’t like tea, but the tea is delicious. Whatever you want the tea to taste like is how it will taste. If you want it to taste like orange juice, it will taste like orange juice. If you want it to taste like water, then it’ll taste like water. Violet really likes it so she drinks a lot of it. The next morning, she wakes up and she is totally blind! She gets some glasses and miraculously, she can see again. For some reason, everyone in Perfect has to have glasses and everyone is Perfect at everything they do. For example, her mum is terrible at cooking but in Perfect, she’s really good. Violet’s dad then disappears and she tries to work out where he’s gone. Luckily, she meets a person called Boy. They start to investigate this and find out some very interesting facts. 

This book is full of twists and turns. In each book, you find out something new. It is excellent and extremely exciting.

This book is part of a trilogy and is the first book in the series. This book is suitable for ages 9+. It is also suitable for adults as well. 

This book depicts a dystopian future. It makes me think of how it would feel to live in a totalitarian regime. It’s not actually that far from reality because in North Korea it controls everything its citizens do.

If you decide to get this book, I hope you enjoy it.
