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!

  11. im sssssssssssoooooooooooo sad i missssss percy ssssssooooooooooo much 🙁 y do we hav 2 wait sooo long

  12. I AM READING THE BOOK NOW! <3 THAT’S THE JOY OF PRE-ORDERING IT AND TRUST MEEEE. IT IS SO GOOD. However I still really miss Percy in the story! 🙁 I don’t know which book he will be back, but definitely not this one. No one quite talks about Grover either, which I’m sad about. I think the other series is better, but let’s wait and see 🙂

  13. Spoiler alert

    Percy Jackson goes to a Roman Half-Blood Camp. While Jason goes to a Greek one. Jason is Thalia’s brother but he is a son of Jupiter and she is of Zeus. Leo can use fire and is a son of Hephatus.

  14. I love all of the books but I am a little nervous on the new series. with Jason and piper. All well. I have read the red pyramid 2 times and the percy Jackson series 4 times now. I cant wait for the new one. though I still would like a Percy Jackson book again. Percy Jackson and Annabeth are AWESOME. I hope they are included in another book!!!.
    My bro and I love your books keep them coming. 🙂

  15. Omg i hopE that in the next book they will tell it from percys point of view since he had been there and probally has amnesia just like Jason
    O well he rocks

  16. Man, I loved the Lost Hero!!! I finished it about an hour ago. It was awesome I loved how Rick Riordan added the mixture of Roman to the book! It was just magnificent you guys definetly got to read it!!!

  19. Bought the book yesterday at the airport and finished it today… couldn’t put it down! Definitely a great read and Riordan expands wonderfully on the Percy Jackson series with a new in-depth saga. Only problem I have now is that I am going to have to wait long periods of time between book releases… oh man, not sure I can handle that!
