Book News – New Camp Half-Blood Series: The Heroes of Olympus

riordan-medal1The second series by Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, is also about Camp Half-Blood and will be called The Heroes of Olympus. The first book, called The Lost Hero, will come out October 12, 2010.

After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:

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.

Now, in a brand-new series from blockbuster best-selling author Rick Riordan, fans return to the world of Camp Half-Blood.. Here, a new group of heroes will inherit a quest. But to survive the journey, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods.

Sounds good!

  1. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! i cant wait i LOVED the percy jackson sires i cant wait ahhhhhhhhhhhhh i can not wait 11 days i really want to read this book i cant wait. percy rocks <3

  2. I cannot wait for this book to come out! I am the biggest fan of the 1st series,so I can’t wait!!!

  3. cant wait for it to come out. i cant wait until october it seems to take forever to come; and i was looking for more info i ended up reading at least two chapters of it not sure if its exactly form the book but i just wanted to keep reading it got so interesting.

  4. i like so can’t wait for the new books to come out i am driving my mom and friends insane counting down to the release my friends think i am losing my marbles they just don’t understand how awesome these books are.SPOIL ALERT i did some digging after reading the sample chapters and i have got the bad guy narrowed down to three suspects. hecate,goddes of well evil stuff like black magic.hera,cuz i think we all know hera hates demigods.circe,daughter of hecate and queen of black magic

  5. I CANNOT WAIT.!!!!!!!!! im so glad that percy will be in this book along wid annabeth. i wuz afraid they wouldnt be in it….is percy the main character??????? i mean i read the first two chapters of the lost hero……( password:newhero
    but maybe the book will change POVs???????
    I HOPE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i love percy!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I LOVED the Percy Jackson series!!!! I’m so stoked that Riordan is gonna do it again, and if I dare say it, even better than before! 🙂

  7. im soooooooooooo excited that there will be The Heroes of Olympus!!! i read percy jackson series twice and read the first book of Kane Chronichles and they are so fascinating! I can’t wait till october to check out the new series!

  8. I think Jason is the son of a Roman god. I’m guessing Piper is the daughter of Iris. I don’t know about Leo.

  9. AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that was me and my bff freakinout after we heard that rick riordan was making a new camp half blood series! after we read the last olympian she said “thats it its over camps saved percy and annabeth ended up together and we will.have 2wonder what hppens next” and i said that rick would make a new series and when we heard he was we didnt stop screamin for 10minutes strait!

  10. I think Jason is a son of a wind god. Not Zeus.
    Reason? Jason described Annabeth as “about his age” (16), so it couldn’t have been more than a few years after Last Olympian’s ending. The end of that book was the time when they lifted Big Three pact…waaaay less than sixteen years ago. So if Jason is 16, he was born when the Big Three pact was still in effect, which means he cannot be a son of Zeus.

    Then again, Nico and Bianca stayed in the Lotus Hotel…maybe Jason did too, and he may have stayed there for so long he lost his memory…that may explain it

  11. i love percy. he is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    hot i love you percy!!!!!11

  12. percy is sooooooooooooooooooooo hot!
    i cant wait for the book to come out 2 days befor my birthday.

  13. Thank gosh! That’s four days before my birthday, so maybe an early birthday present? I’m just sad that Nico won’t be in it….

  14. OMG, I have a theory.

    I think Percy is the lost hero, because he’s been missing for three days already (I read the first two chapters, sorry for the spoiler 🙂 ), but it could also be Luke who has been reborn as Jason.
    But then, he would remember when he was younger, right? But he could have had his memory erased…
    So many possibilities.

    I’m so excited for the book, I can’t even stand it! FanGirl shreik…EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    PS – Percy’s Pen-Sword is mine! Lol, luv u Perc!

  15. I can’t wait for it,, I’m very excited and I can no longer wait until October it’s to far .. It’s just that I love Rick Riordan’s work so much I have the complete set of the Percy Jackson series a copy of the Red Pyramid and the Ultimate Guide,, it’s a shame that the Demigod Files isn’t available here in the Philippines yet, or at least I haven’t seen one yet cause I’m really goin’ to buy it. I wish that the lost hero comes early here because I’m so excited ’bout reading it as I’ve read the comments of the lucky ones who’ve had a sneak peak of it and says it’s even better than Percy Jackson and the olympians,,and honestly I really envy you guys…

    oh I really wish it’s already October cause I can wait no more..

    oh, and by the way,, thanks for sharing the password I love it

    Go Rick R.,, great work,, we’re all enjoying it so thanks 🙂 XD

  16. i bet u guys any money that leos dad is hephaestus,pipers mom is ethier athena or aprodite, and if jason isn’t percy then zues

    thats what i think if u think something elese than we’ll see when the book comes out!!!!!!!!!

    sooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)!

  17. I’m dying to read The Lost Hero! Percy you ADHD fool! How could you get yourself lost! Rick Riordan is the best author EVER! By the way, I think Jason’s the son of Zeus.

  18. i was soo sad when percy jackson ended i read it 3 times and when i heard a newseries was cumin out i was so excited its impossible 4 me to wait until october

  19. For some reason it won’t let me axeses the site to read the two chapters it keeps saying privecy and terms of use PS.I would rather have another Percy Jackson and the olympins book than a hereos of Olympus book I just like the first series so much

  20. Okay, so here are the Most Likely Possibilities of the new Demigods in the story: Jason – Zeus, Lord of the Sky or perhaps Aeolus, God of Wind because Jason is not hurt by the lightning, Leo – Very hard for me to decide, but I know it is one of the “H” Gods, Hermes of Hephaestus. Leo acts and his appearance and behavior is like Hermes, but he is a very talented Constructor, like Hephaestus. Piper – Perhaps Aphrodite, because her eyes keep changing color , or maybe Iris because the rainbow has many colors, or Apollo.

  21. i cant wait until the new series!!!!!!!I read the percy jackson series like 3 times and i still like it. I’ve also read the red pyramid and that was awsome too!!!!!!!Im seriously counting the days until the lost hero!!!!!!!!!

  22. OMG!!!!!!!!! i cant belive that Rick R. is making a new series!!!! i already read the red pyrimid and the 2 sample chapters for the heros of olmpus. if you havent read them read them now. the password is newhero. what you`ll find out will be very interseting.
    P.S-its about Percy(LOVE him). youll bbe surprised at whst it is.

  23. Me and my friend Emily love the Percy Jackson series and we just LOVE Percy, so were glad that he and annabeth will be in the new series. Also my friend Elise and I love the series too, everyone from my school has heard of and/or love Percy Jackson, But I think I might be the only one in the circle of friends thats heard of the lost hero. I cant wait till October 12!!! I have the red pyramid and love it so far. im about 1/4 of the way done. in the first two chapters of the lost hero, i know right off the spot when it said that Jason survived lightning that was strong enough to kill 20 men, i knew he was child of zeus, and then i think Leo will be Hephaestus, and all i know about Piper is her mom is immortal, and jason thinks shes beautiful and so does leo, so possibly Aphrodite? I am pretty stumped on the whole piper thing, although I will probably feel dumb after figuring out Piper’s Immortal mother. I think Leo will sorta be like the grover, except not satyr, demi-god. Piper will sorta be the annabeth and Jason will portray Percy! I hope I’m right! I tthink Leo is child of hephaestus because i read on percyjackson.wika that he likes making tools and stuff, and thats what hephaestus does, so yeah. I just cant wait for the lost hero to come out. I think Rick should keep writing these books because it teaches children about mythology, keep up the good sensory details, I loved the first 2 chapters, i wish i could read more but ill just have to have my mom pre-order it for me 😀 I hope I’m right about the Immortal parents, im 99.9% sure about leo and jason but 15% sure about Piper! I’m going into the 5th grade, cant wait til school starts back up because i moved about a mile away from my old house and now ill be going to a diff school, and im excited to make new friends and hope they like Percy too! The book will sorta be like an early Halloween present, although i usually dont get presents for hallo except tons of candy. Cant wait till it comes out!!!

  24. my theory is that jason is the sun of zeus but im not totally sure about him yet. Leo is most like Hespatutaus…or however you spell it. And Piper im guessing..welll im still at a lost on her. but i am SOOOO excited i am a HUGE fan of Percy and was kinda sad he will not be the main carracter but i know ill like jason!!!! CANT WAIT!!!


  26. I AM FREAKING OUT.I was sooooooooooooo stupid to not check it out straight away when me and my friend were on the computer at school and accidently found out a site about a second series. neither of us thought to check the computer again. and now I have to wait. it’s good I found out about it so late. I wouldn’t have gone well knowing from the beginning.

  27. i loved the series sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much ecept for the 2nd percy jackson and the olypians. in school we 5th graders get to send out letters to authors saying how much we love their books. i got rick riordan. our teacher said they probably wouldnt write back but mine did and printed out the first four chapters of the “lost hero” and gave it to me.all that happens is that annabeth and butch take them all to camp halfblood an they tell chiron what happens and they find out there parents. i wont tell you who they are because you just have to wait.

  28. Well her mom might have left her but remember what Leo said to Jason. If only they knew about her dad.

  29. has anyone read the whole book yet? and also has anyone read the first two chaptersof it that were released on the official website?

  30. Well I think that Jason is Luke reborn and Percy is gone so Annabeth will not reast till she finds him and the 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

    I think that mabey the foes are the half-bloods and the prophecy is from a bad guy. But the 7 are Jason (Zues), Leo (Hephities), Piper (a wind god), Annabeth, Percy, Clarries, and Butch. To storm and fire it will be Hades, or Atlas, Hades can use fire and Atlas holds up the world. An oath to keep with a final breath some one from the 1st seirse will die and breack the oath. Foes brearing arms to the doars of death it’s probebly Atlas or Hades going against the gods and do you think we will see Rachel any more?

  31. percy is missing!!!!! omg what happend!! ive read all the other books to i sooo want to read this one it sounds so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. I have second thoughts on who I said. It may also have Gleeson and Grover in it along the way. The new series may even have it where Grover leaves to find Percy on his own an ends up finding Gleeson. I AM SSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. October is to far away I want to read Rick Riordann’s new book. He’s the best auther and I need a new book. I hope Percy and Annabeth come back also I hope somehow they run into Luke again I love him.I think It will be the best!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. First half blood series was awesome!!! I cant wait for this next one! I hope that alot of the old demigods are in it. October is too long to wait!!!

  35. I think I know who the seven are. Jason, Leo, and Piper, of course, but the other three are (hopefully) Percy (who I think they meet later), Annabeth, and maybe this Butch guy… or Clarisse. I think Kronos will come back and they may need Luke’s assistance to stop him maybe even add Atlas as a greater threat.

  36. SO amazing I have read the olympian series 2 times and got the kane chrnociles 2 days ago i’m so psyched now that there will another series of camp half-blood is just like he can read my thoughts LOVE YOU RICK RIORDAN

  37. I can’t believe it!!!! A new demigod series!!!!! I am a HUGE FAN of Percy and his friends!!! My friends all now I am CRAZY about it!!!! I really hope it will be as good as Percy Jackson… If it can!!!! I could get A LOT!!! of people hooked just like I did to the Percy series!!!!!

  38. I’m so pre ordering this! I would wait in line the nite b4 but I did that the nite b4 the deathly hallows and there were like 600 people packed into that little borders… I guess it was worth it though. plz take my advice and don’t wait in line! pre order it and save urself from a trip 2 the er!

  39. if you hadnt noticed yet Jason is son of Zeus, Leo is son of Hephestus and i don’t know who Piper is Daughter to yet, maybe Apalo or one of the minor gods
