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…

  1. Anyone else got the book right from school and walked straight to the book store for this book coz a quarter mile walk to the store and then a mile to my house didnt seem like enought to slow me down from this book.

  5. Book is great and so far i think i like the last olympian a lil better but it still great but maybe its because everyone hyped it up so much so it didn’t reach what everyone expected because it is almost impossible to reach its hype but still a great book so far can’t wait for the second book does anyone know the name for the second book or is it unknown? plz comment back if you had the answer. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

Also they have Catching Fire which is the second book in the Hunger Games series and I have been waiting to read it for so long!!! But I still want Lost Hero more!! OMGZ I am writing so much!!!! I will stop now. lol. Oh I just remembered I was going to say something. Okay. @CheesePattyCakes: I’m not trying to offend you but why the heck are you even writting about that stuff in this blog!!!????? Okay also I don’t believe you are actually that clueless. I think you are just doing that to be funny. Okay now I shall stop writing. Lol. Good-bye everybody for now!!!!

  9. I HATE STUPID AMAZON.COM!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS SO EVIL!!!!!!!!!

MY FRIEND GOT IT @ MIDNIGHT CAUSE SHE HAS A KINDLE!!!!!! STUPID ELECTRONICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM GOING TO DIE AND AM CLOSE TO TEARS :’(

  11. AHHHHHH!!! I MISSED THE LIVE CHAT!!!! I AM SSOO MAD!!! CLOSE TO TEARS!!! AHHHHHH!! SOMEONE PLZ FILL ME IN ON WHAT HAPPEND!!!! WAS IT INTERESTING????? AAAAHHHHH!!!!

  12. Oh also @percyjacksonlova; this book is epic, right!? Also, CheesePattyCakes, I’m Saphiea. I’m smarter than that. Stop trying to pull one over on me.

  13. Ah!!!! The book came out today!!!! AAAAAAHhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! But my mom wouldn’t get it for me. Maybe tomorrow :)

  14. omgggggg!!!!!
    **Spoiler Alert”

    jason’s last name is Grace!!!
    i kno more but i dont want to say anything else…

  15. does ANYONE know where i can download the book for free? I preordered the book back in freaking APRIL and when i checked amazon yesterday, they said that they wont even ship the book before november!!!! I CANT WAIT THAT LONG :( :( !!

  16. @BigFan…no it wouldn’t be out there for free, at least legally.

    Did you check your own order for the expected ship date? Today Amazon says you can get it tomorrow if you choose one-day shipping. Of course that costs more…but standard shipping, even super saver wouldn’t take until November. Well, unless you live in Siberia or something.

  17. ok never mind my previouse comment i left my book at school so i read a chapter on some website and it was totally wrong and different so yeah i dont know why i said it.

  18. @ Carri
    I Live in Norway :P so ye,maybe that’s why it’s gonne take so long xD It’s just that it’s been a long wait and i cant wait any longer now that the book has actually come out :(

  19. Okay, so I got the book yesterday and I’ve already started it. I LOVE it. I’m about a third done. Or more, I don’t know. Jason is Thalia’s brother!!! Not just half either, 100%!! The book is really amazing, but I just have one thing to say. So, I have a habit of reading ahead when the suspense is really high. I don’t read a lot ahead. Just a little bit. So yesterday I read the last two pages. Aaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe what it says happened to Percy!!!!!!!!!! I’m telling you, if you do not want to ruin and spoil the rest of the story, DO NOT READ AHEAD!!!!

  20. I also think that the next book is going to be from Percy’s point of view. Like how this one is about Jason at Camp Half Blood. I think the next one will be about Percy and the camp that he is at now. (Sorry, if you haven’t read that part yet.)

  21. @mocha loca how do you know the book is called “Son of Neptune” if you know that do you know wene it comes out? plz tell me :)

  22. @ unicorn, well i can’t speek for the whole population, but everyone has to take english in school, so most people know how to speak english, though the official language is norwegian. :P
    Though most norwegians suck at speaking english xD i’m a little better then average cause i used to live in the U.S :D wish i was there now, then i could have gotten my copy of TLO already. :(

  23. @ athena, I saw a film on youtube where a girl had a copy of the lost hero and she showed the last pages of the book where it said that the next book in the series would be called “son of neptune”. And for those of you who don’t know, Neptune is the Roman name for Poseidon. So we can expect 1 of 2 things. Either Percy will have a special role in the second book, or there will be a nother son of poseidon. the title could also refer to Tyson, but i don’t think Rick Riordan would make a title based on Tyson :P

  24. To 0)
    Yeah I have a bad habit so I read the very last chapter. And OMG it is completely shocking about what happens to Percy!!!!

  25. Oh and at the very end of the book, you see a list of gods and goddesses. Then a page after, it says “Coming in 2011, Heroes of Olympus book two, The Son of Neptune” if you knew the ending, you know what the title means.

  26. i love these books i read them in like a month. I cant wait for these books to come out. I know a lot of greek mythology and these people who r also fans know a lot of stuff and frankly its almost all true its given me ideas on whats going to happen but i srill cant fit the puzzle together…PERCY JACKSON AND ANNABETH ARE AMAZING!
