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. percy and jason should totally fight!!!!!
    i jst hope percy recovers some memory!!!
    would percy die cause he doesn’t know about the dip in river styx???
    can’t wait ONE WHOLE YEAR!!!!

  2. And since Hera (Juno) left jason enough memory to remember Thalia i wonder if Hera left percy enough memory to remember his mom or possibly annebeth

  3. Oh i mean the last book is in 2014 but who knows we might not still be into the books but ill try and keep my mind wrapped around the camp half-blood series.

  4. Hey and i found a website that said every new book like book 3 or 4 or 5 would be released every fall of a new year in 2012 fall we get to read the 3rd book and then the world ends but in 2013 the 4th book comes out and in 2015 the last camp half-blood series book ( I think this coz he is running out of greek myths unless he refers to the 3rd, 2nd, or 1st age which i couldnt find on any website so im confused) but i still dont know the names of them sry πŸ™ I just thought i should share that with you.

  5. Yay i finished but im wondering if the groups meet in the next one and will percy go back to dating annebeth im just curiouse coz i like percy a lot better then jason and who else is wondering about grover and nico coz i want to know what happened to them.


  7. finished the book. AWESOME! katie bug, you must read it. i know you think it wont be the same, but hell be back in the next book as the main character.Also, the next book comes out next fall whoever asked that.(unless riordan gets delayed)
    Anyway, i think the plot for this book was a bit far fetched, to say the least. the gods keeping them all seperated… but it all came together in the end. Question: any opinions on how riordan plans on equalizing Percy and Jason? he will have to if Jason is to be a leader, and as of now jason is a regular big three child, while Percy is “invincible” Please, post your thoughts πŸ˜€

  8. @Sarah: Riordan said that Percy “has had his series”. I presume this means that he will play a role, but nothing will be from his POV.

    I’ve been thinking about the third prophecy line, “An oath to keep with a final breath”. I’m thinking…it’s pretty clear that Leo has a crush on Thalia…maybe Thalia will die because she breaks the Hunters’ oath never to fall in love? Just an idea, but I hope it isn’t true πŸ™ …Thalia is awesome.

  9. @ KAtie Bug, are u saying just because Percy wasn’t in the lost hero, you don’t want to read any more of the books in the Heroes of Olympus series? that’s just stupid. Percy is gonne be in the series, Riordan has already confirmed that, he just wont be the center of attention all the time like in the PJO series, and if you’ve read the lost hero you know that Percy will 99.9999999999% be in “Spoiler alert”
    the next book, The Son of Neptune. I mean, how much clearer can it be? Neptune is the Roman term for Poseidon. Unless Poseidon got another kid running around in the Roman Camp Halfblood, we know that Percy will be back πŸ˜€ .
    I don’t think Riordan would put another son of Poseidon in the series, Tyson was cool, cause he isn’t a demigod, but another demigod? i don’t think Percy would be to happy about his dad finding another woman then his mother, especially since percy an poseidon have gotten so close.

  10. I connot belive that percy doesnt know who he is!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, what if he doesn’t recognize me? I HATE YOU RICK RIORDAN!!!!!!!!

  11. nevermind i know when its coming out now!!!
    fall 2011 people!!!!!!!!!!!
    and the title of next book is the son of neptune!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    keep counting down thosee days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

  12. me too grace i finsished the book too!!!!!!!!!!
    hey does anybody know when the next book is coming out?
    i need to know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. I don’t know if I want to read it as much anymore with all of the comments I’ve read. If Percy isn’t in all of the camp half blood books, I want nothin’ to do with ’em… Just sayin’…

  14. @mocha loca
    I KNOW, right? One entire year! Bright side: we get to see Sadie and Carter again in Spring, so after that, we can survive a few more months, right? And Mr. Riordan will probably post the first couple chapters, and if they’re like really short, maybe a couple more.

  15. @( o

    Yeah, I read the last sentence, and I was thinking about it for the whole book. I kept thinking “What other camp? Percy doesn’t know who he is? AHHHHHHH!”

  16. I’ve read it and (if you haven’t finished it, do not read past here) does anyone think Tyson, Nico, and Grover will be in this? And 2: Do you think Percy might be getting back his memories like Jason did? 3: Does anyone thing Percy’s pov will be in the next book?

  17. In the course of the series, I think Jason will be the leader for the seven halfbloods, but for the Greeks, while someone else maybe in charge for the Romans. Only because they said he got switched with Percy so both the Roman and Greeks learn to get along. I’m pretty sure there will be two leaders, for two groups, which both are powerful and strong.

  18. i think rick is going to make Jason stronger than Percy which wuld so suck cuz Percy wuld beat the sh*t out of Jason

  19. My friends spoiled it for me. Really sad, I LOVE Percy Jackson!!! I hope he doesn’t die in the second book! CROSSED FINGERS!!!!

  20. i read the whole book!!!!!!!!!!!
    its so amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!
    u have to read it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
    OMG!!!!!!! so good!!!!!!

  21. @unicorn HOW?!?!?!? Oh my gods i want one!!!! that would be sooooooo cool!!!! i would DIE!!! πŸ™‚

  22. Percy Jackson vs. Jason Grace
    Who would win?

    I say Percy he IS invincibal (except the small of his back)

    Greece vs. Rome
    Who do u like?

    I like Greece!

  23. Great Prophecy predictions:

    Seven half-bloods shall respond to the call:
    Jason, Piper, and Leo are 3. No idea about the rest…

    To storm or fire the world must fall:
    Storm probably means Jason (son of Zeus/Jupiter)
    Fire probably means Leo (first in over 100 years to have power over fire)

    An oath to keep with a final breath:
    No idea…

    And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death:
    Roman demigod and Greek demigod. Jason and Percy? Romans and Greeks have always been foes (they mentioned a civil war between Roman demigods and Greek demigods at the same time as the American Civil War)

  24. my predictions for the son of Neptune is that Percy is going to be at the roman camp half blood and he is going to have his memory washed just like Jason. the 7 demigods in the great prophecy will jason piper lea annabeth percy and two other demigods from the roman camp that will probebly be in the son of neptune. i also think that the son of neptune’s main character is going to be percy.

  25. @Lt. Narwhal

    I read the last chapter just because I couldn’t wait much longer. I would highly suggest NOT to read it first. It truly does ruin the whole story. I could hardly read the rest of the book because I kept thinking about the last chapter I read. I think it would be more enjoyable to read the book like normal. Front to back. Leave the surprise for the end.

  26. percyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy jackon vs jasooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon wonder who would win

  27. i new lupa was romulus and remus!!! i was like… hmmm this sounds Like the ROMAN myth… wierd… oh well this book is greek! Rick is commiting TREASON!!!!!!

  28. ok so far this book is good but im not done yet ( chapter 11) and im hoping percy is ok coz he is better then jason and i nit comin back on this site till im done the book coz when i read your comments you give it away so bye for now i should be dine by tuesday max so yea Bye.;)

  29. I can say this for people who hasnt read it yet. Imagine camp half-blood, but Roman style. And they’re all war-like while the greeks are… eh, little less. Now imagine that somewhere else in the US. Yeah that’s gonna be important, especially for the second book. UGH why does it have to come out in the FALL!!!!

  30. @Big Fan lol haha just wondering πŸ˜€ and i got an autographed copy of the book today! AHH rick riordan actuallt touched something that i now own! WHOO HOO!! hahahaa

  31. Ugh I don’t know if I can wait for next week… But from the comments I’ve read… It seems like it’s goin to have a dissapointing ending… πŸ™ And if for any reason Percy and Annabeth don’t stay together or whatever, I’m gonna do somthin’ drastic! lol πŸ™‚

  32. read the book…its SOOOO good, but at the end its SOOO sad because percyz at the OTHER CAMP and probably lost all of his memory of annabeth…:(

  33. I finished the book early this morning. I LOVE IT!!!!! I SO can not wait for the second book!!!

  34. I knew it the entire time but rick had go and reveal it so i cant even flaunt that i knew it first im so gggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry. but anyway i cant wait for the son of neptune. this is shaping up to be a great series

  35. thank you for telling me about the back of the book.it sucks that it wont come out till fall of 2011,its just not fair!!!!!!!!!i read the krane chronicels and its a good book i just wish rick would take time off the series and write ALL the heros of olympus series!!!!

  36. I mean does reading the last chapter ruin the book and should i read the book from start to finish and wait on the final chapter.

  37. Het is the last chapter what happens to percy important and should read it first or read the book first so it doesnt ruin it tell me pls.
