The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (book one)

Jason can't remember anything. He doesn't know who he is, where he came from....he doesn't even remember his friends. Learning he's a demigod is quite a bit of a shock (to his friends Piper and Leo as well). They end up at Camp Half Blood and immediately set out on their quest to save Hera and keep the King from rising!

Really loved this book. I love everything about Greek mythology and enjoyed the Percy Jackson series. In this book, Annabeth is off to try and find Percy (which has a cool twist at the end), Jason starts to remember his life (but only what Hera wants him to remember) and learns he has a sister. Piper is claimed by Aphrodite and learns she's more than a pretty face. Leo, who has cool fire, is claimed immediately and sets off on the quest with his magical tool belt!

I really liked the portrayal of the wind god, Aerolus (spelling wrong I'm sure). He's moody and tempermental but just plain funny. In this book we are introduced to some new gods that are interesting and unique.
