Topic and Theme Two topics of this story are: camp and action-adventure. Camp is an important topic that is easy to connect with the reader. Most readers are familiar with concepts of sharing cabins, work duty, outdoor games, and eating in common areas. Which is why Rick Riordan also wrote the action, adventure of demigods, satyrs and centaurs within the boundries of a normal summer camp. Action was important because of the many battles that occured throughout the story that made you keep reading. The first theme is that, it's important to be with people like you. The demigods felt like misfits in the real world, but when they found a camp of kids exactly like them, they were happy. A second theme is that good is always required to fight evil. In every story there is a conflict. In most action novels, the good fight the evil with justice.Without this, the story would be boring ,or in the evil side's POV.

AphroditePiper's mom. She is the goddess of beauty, formed from the ocean waves.

ZeusJason's dad. He is lord of the sky. He is loud, reckless, and violent.

HephaestusLeo's dad. He is lord of fire and the forges. He was cast off a cliff at birth.

Compare and Contrast The movie I chose to go with my book is Lord of the Rings 3, LOTR3. They are very similar in various ways. A theme to The Lost Hero is that it's important to be with people like you, and in the movie,LOTR3, the small, simple, yet powerful hobbits join forces. Also, the main charactors are very much alike. Jason, in the book is the leader who is young but very powerful. In LOTR3, Frodo, the leader is tiny but strong. Additionally, there are other similarities. In the book, Hera is a necessary evil. In the movie, Gollum is required to lead them to the volcano, and he is obviously terrible. One large similarity is that in both stories, simple people, who don't know what they are capable of, fight evil. With many other similarities there are also major differences. The timeline of Lost Hero is modern day fused with greek mythology. LOTR3 occurs in medieval times which is the 5th to 14th centuries. Although these stories have their differences, the biggest common element is that the greater good - Earth and the survival and future of mankind depends upon average simple people.
