Revue de presse

Percy Jackson fans can rest easy: this first book in Riordan's Heroes of Olympus spin-off series is a fast-paced adventure with enough familiar elements to immediately hook those eager to revisit his modern world of mythological mayhem. Clever plot devices--like gods who shift back and forth between their Greek and Roman personae--keep the book from feeling like a retread of Riordan's previous novels. Jason, Piper, and Leo, three students at a wilderness school for troubled teens, are transported to Camp Half-Blood after an unexpected encounter with evil storm spirits on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Not only do they discover that they are the offspring of ancient gods, but they also learn that they are three of seven demigods mentioned in the Great Prophecy uttered by Rachel in The Last Olympian. Wasting little time acclimating to their new lives, the three embark upon a quest to preserve Mt. Olympus and the divine status quo, by rescuing an erstwhile enemy. Rotating among his three protagonists, Riordan's storytelling is as polished as ever, brimming with wit, action, and heart--his devotees won't be disappointed.—PW

Author of the wildly successful Percy Jackson and the Olympians books, Riordan here begins a new series that involves some of the same characters and settings but adds Roman mythology and an expansion on a prophecy mentioned in the final volume, The Last Olympian. At the start of the story, Percy is missing, and a new kid, Jason, appears with no idea who he is or what he is doing. No one really has time to figure out these smaller mysteries, though, because a much larger emergency looms: Gaea is waking up from her eons long slumber, and if she becomes fully conscious, the world as it is known will essentially end. Thus begins a quest to soothe and quiet Gaea, which will require a group of daring and talented teens and an extremely unlikely alliance between the Roman and Greek gods (and their offspring). Fans of the earlier series may be startled to find that their hero, Percy, is literally nowhere to be found the entire novel, but Jason and his friends Piper and Leo are worthy replacements, especially as Riordan is careful to develop them as individuals even as they are quickly thrown together as a dragon-riding, world-saving trio. Newcomers may find the brief references to backstory a bit baffling, but the details are more likely to send them back to the earlier titles than mar their understanding of this new series. While a few minor plots are wrapped up by book's end, the major quest is still very much in the air (and actually looking pretty daunting, even for the sort of intrepid offspring of gods that make up Riordan's books), so expect plenty of anticipation for the next volume.—BCCB

Camp Half-Blood, home to the mortal children of Greek gods (see the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books), has three new arrivals: Piper, a daughter of Aphrodite, good at persuasion; Leo, a son of Hephaestus, good at fixing things; and Jason, a son of Zeus, who is suffering from amnesia. With the Titan war over, a new threat has emerged: a prophesied clash with Gaea's youngest children, the giants, who are returning to overthrow the Olympians. Riding a bronze dragon rehabilitated by Leo, the three demigods go on a quest to free Hera from one such giant; another giant secretly holds Piper's father hostage in order to force her to betray her new friends. Jason's missing memories point to another mystery: why does Jason speak Latin rather than Greek like the other demigods? Why are the initials SPQR tattooed on his arm? Why does he know the Roman names for mythological creatures? Riordan extends the franchise in a logical direction while maximizing the elements that made the first series so popular: irreverent heroes, plenty of tension-filled moments fighting monsters, and authentic classical mythology mixed in with modern life. Completely in control of pacing and tone, he balances a faultless comic banter against deeper notes that reveal the characters' vulnerabilities. With Percy Jackson slated to make an appearance in later volumes, fans nostalgic for the old books should find in this new series everything they've been pining for.—Horn Book

This book will delight fans of The Lightning Thief (Hyperion, 2005) as Percy, Annabeth, and others play roles in the new prophecy and its subsequent quest. A few months after The Last Olympian (Hyperion, 2009) ends, Jason wakes up on a bus filled with problem kids from the Wilderness School who are headed to the Grand Canyon. He has no memory of his previous life, but seems to be with his girlfriend, Piper, and his best friend, Leo. The action takes off quickly: storm spirits attack them and capture their coach, who turns out to be a Satyr. Searching for Percy, who is missing, Annabeth arrives and takes the three to Camp Half-Blood, where they learn that they are demigods. Their parents are gods in their Roman rather than Greek personae. By sunset of the solstice in three days, the teens must rescue Hera, Queen of the gods, or Porphyrion, the giant king created to destroy Zeus and unseat the gods of Olympus, will rise. Their quest takes them across the United States, sometimes flying on a mechanical, 60-foot dragon, as they use their power and wits against Medea, King Midas, and the giant cannibal Enceladus. Riordan excels at clever plot devices and at creating an urgent sense of cliff-hanging danger. His interjection of humor by incongruous juxtaposition Medea, for example, heads up a New York City department store provides some welcome relief. The young heroes deal with issues familiar to teens today: Who am I? Can I live up to the expectations of others? Having read the first series is helpful but not essential, and the complex plot is made for sequels.—SLJ

Readers longing for a return to Camp Half-Blood will get their wish in the first novel of the Heroes of Olympus series, which follows Riordan's popular Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and includes some of the same characters in minor roles. The new cast features Jason, Piper, and Leo, teen demigods who are just coming to understand and use their unique abilities as they learn how much depends upon their wits, courage, and fast-developing friendship. Setting up the books to come, the backstory of a master plan to unseat the gods is complex but is doled out in manageable bits with a general air of foreboding. Meanwhile, the action scenes come frequently as the three heroic teens fight monstrous enemies in North American locales, including the Grand Canyon, Quebec City, Detroit, Chicago, Omaha, Pikes Peak, and Sonoma Valley. Flashes of humor lighten the mood at times, but a tone of urgency and imminent danger seems as integral to this series as the last. With appealing new characters within a familiar framework, this spin-off will satisfy the demand for more. - Carolyn Phelan—Booklist --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 for Book Two.

Mon fils était un ado de 12 ans et demi quand il a lu ce livre - un ado qui considèrait la lecture comme un loisir mâtiné d'obligations scolaires et qui, encore aujourd'hui, va et vient entre la BD et la Fantasy, toujours par à-coups, bref, de la lecture-plaisir-souffrir-un-peu-quand-même.
Il a lu le premier tome de Percy Jackson, et a abandonné le second en cours de route à 11 ans. A la sortie de ce tome "héros de l'Olympe", je l'ai amené vers l'histoire en lui expliquant que c'était l'univers de Percy, mais sans Percy - ou quasiment - avec de nouveaux demi-dieux. Il a été intéressé immédiatement, et s'est jeté dans le livre avec une faim incroyable, allant jusqu'à lire tard dans la nuit (les vacances s'y prêtaient). Bref, il a adoré, en est passionné, et a posé une option sur la suite qui vient juste de paraître, et qu'il a dévorée en quelques jours seulement - une passion qu'il n'avait pas montrée depuis qu'il a lu "Je suis une légende" et "La photo qui tue" pour le collège...
C'est donc une lecture que je recommande, vous l'aurez compris !
La version anglaise est d'un style proche de celui des Harry Potter, un langage simple à comprendre, une écriture rythmée et nerveuse, sans temps mort, qui peut faire le bonheur des anglicistes débutants qui souhaitent se mettre à la lecture en VO.

Jason has no idea who he is or how he ended up on a bus going on a field trip for The Wilderness School. The two people he wakes up next to, Pyper and Leo, claim to be his friends, but he has no recollection of who they are.

When the group he's with arrives at the Grand Canyon, strange things start happening. Jason has a run-in with Wind Spirits, but has no idea how he knows that's what they are. During their life-and-death battle with the spirits, Coach Hedge, the teacher in charge who turns out to have goat legs, gets taken away by the creatures. Shortly after, a girl and a group of followers show up on winged beasts and whisk them off to a place called Camp Half-Blood.

The three soon discover that they are demigods. Jason is the son of Zeus (but he keeps calling him Jupiter, Zeus' Roman name), Pyper is the daughter of Aphrodite, and Leo is the son of Hephaestus. Still coming into their powers, the three are whisked away on a quest. Their mission: find the missing Hera before the Giant King (the Greek gods' greatest enemy) raises a force so evil that mankind will be utterly doomed.

The trio only has three days and has only one clue to go on: find Boreas, the god of the North Wind. Will Pyper, Leo, and Jason be able to save the world? Will Jason ever figure out who he really is? Who really took his memories? Why does he keep calling gods by their Roman names?

A great new addition to the PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS series. The characters are well-developed, the plot is thick and mysterious, and the action is intense. Although the story will make more sense once the reader has read the first five books in the original series, those who are fans of Rick Riordan, mythology, fantasy, and adventure will all enjoy reading THE LOST HERO.

Quand je suis tombé sur ce livre dans les recommandations je me suis dis "tiens un nouvel auteur qui pense gagner de l'argent en écrivant dans son univers"... Et puis une amie, dévoreuse de livre attitrée, me l'a conseillé. Et je ne regrette pas.
On retrouve le monde de Percy Jackson mais il est possible de comprendre l'histoire sans avoir lu la première saga (c'est juste moins facile).
Les nouveaux personnages sont attachants et j'aime beaucoup l'idée des trois points de vue qui s'oppose l'un à l'autre. ça rend l'histoire bien plus intéressante. On retrouve aussi plus de complexité dans les personnages, ils ont l'air plus "humains" que Percy qui sauvait le monde a 12ans. Les monstres eux ne changent pas beaucoup mais c'est comme ça qu'on les déteste. Bref a tout ceux qui ont aimer l'univers, je recommande de continuer.
A ceux qui n'ont pas lu la première saga, essayer d'imaginer un univers ou les dieux grecs (Aphrodite, Athéna, Poséidon, Zeus, etc..) existent. Et, non seulement ils existent mais en plus ils descendent sur terre et flirtent avec des mortels... Voila comment né l'univers des demi-dieux. Malheureusement pour eux, l'existence des dieux entrainent l'existence de tous les monstres de la mythologie, qui ne cessent de renaitre même si on les tue (plus ou moins rapidement)... Et la vie d'adolescent déjà bien compliqué devient invivable, entre les professeurs qui sont en fait des monstres et les pompoms girls qui crachent du feu quand elles sont en colère...
Ce n'est pas une histoire intellectuelle. C'est drôle, c'est léger. On rit pas mal. A lire !
