I read The Lost Hero. It is my favorite book. I love this book because it inspires me to want to think that a world of monsters and quests, of Olympus and Tartarus, and most of all of gold coins that turn into golden swords and spears is real. To me, Riordan to wishes this. He will always be my favorite author, aside to J.K. Rowling, of course. I only rate books that I think I are good. So obviously I think this book deserves five stars!
