The Lost Hero Phrophecy – Who Are the 7?

On the last blog post about The Lost Hero, Lindsay, Maya, Jeremy, Joe & Wolfstar all left comments taking a guess at who the seven are from the new prophecy:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Who do you think the 7 half-bloods are going to be? Why? Choose up to seven:

Here it is – another piece you’ve been waiting for – the cover of The Lost Hero. The mechanical dragon looks really cool!

You can read Rick Riordan’s comments about the cover and the new book on his blog called Myth & Mystery. He even talks about what kind of roll Percy plays in the new book.

What do you think of the first two chapters?

Rick Riordan’s The Heroes of Olympus Book 1: The Lost Hero – Chapters One and Two! Really. Right Now. Today!

Rick Riordan’s The Heroes of Olympus Book 1: The Lost Hero – Chapters One and Two! Really. Right Now. Today!

The Lost Hero

Rick Riordan said in his blog on June 1st:

“Right now, there are only “locked” sample chapters from The Lost Hero. Bronze coin keychains, like the symbol above, were given out at BEA  (Book Expo America) with the pass code, and for the present, that’s the only way to unlock the chapters. If you weren’t at BEA, or can’t find someone who got the coin, don’t worry! In a few weeks, we’ll open the sample chapters for everyone.”

Well, guess what, you didn’t have to find someone with a keychain, that someone found you! Thanks to Joe who gave us this terrific bit of information in a comment this morning…here is the pass code: “if you go to camphalfblood.com the password is newhero you can read the first two chapters… cant wait”.

NOTE: The two chapters have been moved to http://disney.go.com/disneybooks/heroes-of-olympus/ look on the left side. You don’t need a password anymore either.

I tried it, it works. 47 pages worth! I couldn’t help it, I read the last sentence in the second chapter. I know, I know, bad habit, I shouldn’t have done that…but oh, wait until you read that last sentence! No! Don’t start there like I did! You’ll ruin it!

Thanks again to Joe! What a great way to start the summer.

The book comes out on October 12, 2010. 

Now I’m going to go read the rest…
