The Lost Hero

Now is when the book gets somewhat boring, at least compared to the beginning. As now we’re entering the hub of sub-plots. Leo, who has been claimed by Hephaestus, settled in his cabin. Apparently however, the cabin has been “cursed” and every invention made in it has gone haywire. I just found this part to be as cliche as it gets, i mean it does open possibilities for more sub-plots, but i feel like this plot is here just to create a larger story, or to get to know our hero Leo more. Nevertheless it was a low point for me. For the last little part of Leo’s little plot is his realization that he is one of the special Hephaestus kids as he is able to control fire. I mean that is actually pretty astounding, being able to control fire verses mechanical dragons (one of the Cabins creations unfortunately) could be handy. After that we see more of Jason’s story, and boy is it starting to pick up the pace. First, we enter a conversation between Jason and Chiron in which Chiron responds after seeing Jason “You’re supposed to be dead”. Now that is quite the suspenseful quote, as it opens up many possibilities to Jason’s past. Soon after, Jason was visited by Hera after Chiron and Annabeth leave the room for a brief moment. In this conversation we realise that Hera is in peril, and that the only way Jason would be able to regain his memory is by rescuing her. This is what i would believe to be the main plot, rescuing the queen of all goddesses, Annabeth however believes that Hera is not too fond of her saviors, and that this could be dangerous. Here is where Hypnos enters, Jason and Annabeth search for a easier way than saving Hera to regain his memory, therefore they leave in search of the Hypnos cabin (God of sleep and dreams). I could make a little connection to this, obviously i would search for something easier because i do not think that this person who captured the queen of all goddesses is a chump.
