The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan Part Three

8 Nov

I just finished The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan.  I won’t spoil the ending, but I think it was very well-written.  I think Rick Riordan is really good at finishing books because the ending is a perfect cliffhanger.

I would definitely recommend this book to other people.  I would recommend this book to people who like fantasy and adventure.  Also, this book has several things going on at once, so people who like that type of thing would definitely like this book.  Another aspect of this book that I like is that the chapters switch characters, so one chapter you’ll hear Piper’s point of view, and the next Leo’s.

I would change the ending of this book a little if I had written it.  I think the end of their quest was a little too easy.  I think that Hera should have done things a little differently at the Wolf House.  I also think that it’s a little weird that Piper was just able to charmspeak, a persuasive power that she inherited from her mother, Jason. Also, if Hera is Jason’s patron, then she shouldn’t have just stood there.  That is how I would have changed this book if I had written it.
