This week, I got a e-book copy of The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. It is the first book in his new series, The Heroes of Olympus. I am dying hard to get a book copy of this but I can't wait so I asked my mother to buy me an e-book edition of the book. Since that I don't have any kindle or e-reader device, I just used my ipod touch with ibooks application. What a handy device. I really like my ipod since it is like a substitute to my computer. Even some of my projects are stored in it.
I'm also looking forward to get a copy of The Red Pyramid which also by Rick Riordan. Yes, I am a great fan of fantasy, both middle grade and young adult fantasy.
Here's a short summary!
Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up in a bus full of kids on a field trip. Apparently he has a girlfriend named Piper and a best friend named Leo. They’re all students at a boarding school for “bad kids.” What did Jason do to end up here? And where is here, exactly?
Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, ever since she had that terrifying nightmare. Piper doesn’t understand her dream, or why her boyfriend suddenly doesn’t recognize her. When a freak storm hits, unleashing strange creatures and whisking her, Jason, and Leo away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood, she has a feeling she’s going to find out.
Leo has a way with tools. When he sees his cabin at Camp Half-Blood, filled with power tools and machine parts, he feels right at home. But there’s weird stuff, too—like the curse everyone keeps talking about. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist that each of them—including Leo—is related to a god.
