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 1, 2010:

“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 a few days later…here is what Joe said: “if you go to camphalfblood.com the password is newhero you can read the first two chapters… cant wait”.

I tried it, it worked. 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…

  1. All i wanted to say was that Percy will have an important role to play in the book. It’s on Rick’s blog! So no more worrying! No good-byes! Yay!!!!! I love Percy, soooooooooooooooooooooo MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im, like soooo jealous of Annabeth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Ok first of all Hades doesn’t WANT to destroy the world! Second, Luke is DEAD! and third, u missed a half-blood. What about Butch?????!!!!!!

  3. i just read the lost hero and it was great. i think the mistress that Dylan was talking about is Hera because she was trying to get rid of Jason as she did with Hercules in greek myths. also the prophesy states that 7 halfbloods shall answer the call. 5 have already been notified Percy ,Annabeth, Jason, Leo and, Piper. 2 more could be Hades son nick diangelo and daughter of ares Clarisse. the next line is to storm or fire the world must fall which means that either the eldest gods or their children will destroy the world. the next line says an oath to keep with a final breath which must mean that Luke must keep his oath that Kronos made him do. the next line says and foes bear arms to the doors of death which means that hades must have made a weapon that could make the dead come to earth and destroy the world. that is all i know about the book.

  4. Shannon– i can’t last until october either!!! i am obsessed with the percy jackson series, so i am really REALLY excited about the lost hero!! i cant believe percy is missing! october is way to far away 🙁 until the book comes out i guess i’ll just read the percy jackson and the olympians series over and over again! i need the 3rd chapter asap or i’m gonna go crazy!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. percy jackson= beast
    but right now im freaking out.. i want to read this new series sooooooo bad.. but even if percy is not in it, i will always keep him in a special place in my heart <3

  6. Omigosh! When I finished the first two chapters and there wasn’t any more i like, started hyperventilating!! I nothing less of a percy jackson nut and can NOT wait for the new book!!

  7. This wait is gonna totally kill me! I can’t believe Percy’s missing! He’s like the greatest demigod EVER and he’s missing! It’s sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not fair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. yeah, i think jason is son of a minnor god the wind and leo i can’t figure between the two H gods
    and piper is apllo

  9. Let’s all hope that he gives us one more chapter (with no cliffhanger so we don’t go nuts)

    And. Big maybe, here. Maybe he could move up the release date to like…august.

  10. I think Mr. Riordan planned to publish just the first two chapters online. I think the two chapters are all you get until the book comes out in October. You can follow his updates on his blog though at http://rickriordan.blogspot.com/. If he decides to share more I’m sure he’ll let us know!

  11. so, who has the other pass codes? i have to keep reading. this is like one of the best first two chapters i have ever read!

    PS sorry 4 spelling if ther is i hve dyslxya!

  17. I think Jason was brought forward in time. He’s probably a son of Zeus, but he would have had to be brought forward in time in order for that to work, since the “Big Three Pact” or whatever was only broken 1-2 years before this book; not enough time for a kid to become 15-16 years old. Jason might be the son of a titan or some minor god of winds or something. Zeus is likely, though, because of his resistance to lightning. Piper is probably an aphrodite because of her eyes, though her personality makes her seem more like someone else, maybe a persephone or some minor. Leo is probably either hephaestus or hermes; his skills are hephaestus-like, but his personality and physical appearance are hermes-like. I also think that the “to storm or fire the earth must fall” line from the prophecy refers in part to this “mistress.” She seems to have a thing with storms. Lastly, I think (hope) that Percy was not kidnapped; instead went out to do some idiotically brave thing and got stuck/magically captured, because he is way to epically strong to get kidnapped, and if he was, that would seriously lame-ify him and the book.

  18. i only just read it and it totaly rocks!! i can’t wait for October but it’s summer and i want to swim!! atleast i have time to catch up on percy in his series!!

  19. Does anyone have any theories to who ,Jason,Piper,and Leo’s god parents are? I think Jason is a son of Zeus(the pact of the ‘big three’ was revoked) cause he can endure lighning and control air and leo is OBVIASLY a son of Hephaestus. Piper i think is a daughter of Aphrodite cause jason said her eyes seemed to change color like aphrodite.P.S. did anyone else notice that on some websittes they give away some things such as ‘Leos Good with tools his cabins full of them’etc.?

  20. I googled “the lost hero chapter 3” and there’s nothing. don’t even bother, unless you want fanfiction for the legend of zelda.

  21. ??? WTH !!!!! since when was there a new camp half-blood series??? i mean no offense Rick but that STUPID eygyption thing sucks -.-

  22. Those chapters were amazing! I wish the Doctor were here with the Tardis so i could read the rest in the future or something like that. Jason,(thats my name too!:D) son of Zeus, Leo son of Hephaestus, and Piper, of whom i do not now the godly parent(obviously a goddess is her mother). And great play on the Argonaut myth where Jason loses a sandal in a river.:D(i love this series!:D!)

  23. ik i already posted but im still going insane/crazy i need the 3rd chapter asap or who knows what will happen i can’t sleep with the thought of who could be what and jason’s past i am wondering what happened to jason an where percy is i need someone to give me the3rd chapteror idk what wil happen to me

  24. I read it all the way through, and I’ll tell you one thing…IF ANYONE FINDS A LINK TO CHAPTER 3, POST IT HERE! PLEASE!

    I am so gonna be counting down the days.

  25. I read the first few chapters, and I have to admit,I was a little dissapointed. I LOVE the Percy Jackson Series, and I am am liking the Red Pyramid, but i wasn’t impressed with The lost hero.

  26. I just read the first two chapters and it was GREAT! My son and I love the new characters, especially Leo. I’m glad to see that a this series isn’t turning into another “let’s publish anything” sequels. This is really funny, great new characters, and some old. I hope the rest of the book is as great as the first 47 pages. Thank you Rick for bringing such entertainment back into reading, not just for me, but also for my son.

  27. i read the two chapters now im going insane cuz i need to know what happens. i need the 3rd chapter so i won’t go insane cuz i seriously think jason mite be percy jackson in discise. HELP i can’t just be left of from the lest few sentances. gezzzzze

  28. I might not make it! I haven’t finished the kane chronicles yet but this is the book that I have been waiting for! Ahhh! I can’t wait. Where’s a time machine when you need one!

  29. @shannon you’re not the only one freaking out :DD lol i think im not going to last till then either

  30. I am seriously freaking out right now. I saw every little reference to everything 😀 Am I the only one who might have a heart attack before October? :]

  31. P.S cant wait to read it. the Percy Jackson books are awsome. I Read them like a billion times. Same with the Kane Chronicles.

  32. I am so going to read it. but only if percy jackson is going to be in it. i really cant stand goodbys

  33. Omg can’t wait till the book actually comes out!! and rick said the main characters wouldn’t be back. Those two chapters were amazing!!!

  34. You idiots I am a DEMIGOD!!! I am Poseidons Child!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know how? In class yesterday I was mad at some boy cause he throw a chedder cheese blocke at me and he thought it was magical so I killed him with a earthquake that erupted when I stambed my foot and then We were near a creek and A wave erupted and everyone was wet except for me! HA! I AM A DEMIGOD!!!!!!!!!! MUHAHAHAHAH!

  35. Rick certainly comes out of the gate running. A strange new demon or a minor god? Three strong half bloods, a saytr from the 5th book, a mistress out to kill Jason. We have much to speculate about. Godly parents, villainess, a lost hero, an abducted saytr, a very irate Annabeth, and Butch son of Iris? Wow 4 months will not pass fast enough.

  36. The first two chapters are excellent. “Goat fu”… now that’s the Rick Riordan I’ve been missing. It looks like a good start!
