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. but it would be sad too
    i wish that percy and annabeth come together again i really hope that and keep counting those days!!!!!!

  2. @bhz right… haha i wasn’t thinking about what she wrote. sorry. πŸ™‚ Did Jason find a girl in the book who was his old girl friend? I haven’t read the whole book yet so i don’t know. πŸ™‚

  3. oh thanks Sarah
    but i agree to i think percy fighting annebth would be really cool

  4. hey omg if anyone has chapter three could you publish it im going insane in the brain waiting to get the book!

  5. @Sarah: I don’t think (O:’s Rena = Rhea. Why would Percy fall in love with a titan? Maybe he’s just using the name as a placeholder for whoever Jason’s girlfriend was. but…really…

    @(O: WHO IS RENA?

    @mocha loca: Yeah, I think Hera wiped both of their memories. Remember…”an exchange goes two ways”–Jason

  6. And is a new chat room coming out for TSN (The Son of Neptune) or is this becoming that chat room coz then the name should change.

  7. Yea maybe annabeth might go up against percy in a fight while they where masks so they don’t see each other and remember at the end hera/juno said that jasons memory will slowly come back.

  8. I’ve read the lost hero and Thinks Riordan Is the MOST AMAZING writer EVER!!! I also think he should make a demigod child that was born from a demigod. that would be really cool!! πŸ™‚

  9. Ok, everyone who doesn’t know who Rena is, :o) might actually Rhea. The mother of Zeus and his siblings. πŸ™‚

    @mocha loca haha… gasp… oh and i LOVE your theory about Annabeth fighting Percy! That would be kind of cool. It’s not that cheesy if that makes you fell better. πŸ˜‰ It’s awesome! Keep making theories people! πŸ˜€

  10. @ 0)
    I agree about your ideas about The Son of Neptune. I had an idea, since in the book, the Greeks and the Romans have to work together to close the doors to the Underworld (who are the “foes”, from the great prophecy), Jason will be the leader, but maybe they meant a leader for the Greek group, since he now knows the Greek culture (and I have to reread to figure it out again). I was thinking their might be a Roman leader, someone who learned about the Roman culture, who might be Percy, since he was sent to Roman camp, it’s kind of stupid, maybe it might be switched around, but that’s what I think.
    Chiron said the Greeks and the Romans did once collided, and it might happen with Jason and Percy, if by any chance, Percy is sent on a quest or some sort.
    With the amnesia issue, they said it will take about 6 months for the Argo 2 to be built, I’m pretty sure if Hera was the one to take away his memories too, then she would at least give enough memory to remember at least someone like Grover or something, then give him all his memory back. I have a question, do you think it was only Hera who took away Jason’s and Percy’s memory? Because I was thinking Poseidon might have something to do with this, or at least, any other God or Titan (hope the gods it’s not Kronos, haha). But I’m asking you. And yeah Poseidon might know something, maybe about Percy (gasp).
    With the sibilings, I wasn’t thinking about the Roman sibilings yet, maybe some of Poseidon’s children were kept away from monsters as possible. But Roman sibilings might work, especially when a Greek hero is at a Roman camp. I thought of a theory that I strangly made up, was when Jason and Annabeth (I’m still wondering about Piper and Leo) go into the Roman camp, and since the camp is more war-like, they might have to go into battle to prove your strength or something (like capture the flag). I had a small theory that Annabeth will battle a some mysterious guy who she figures out is Percy. I don’t know where that leads to, but it’s kind of a cheesy theory, but feel free to add-on if you want :).
    All it matters to me is that It has Neptune, which means Poseidon, which means Percy, which means me happy!! Now only about 365 days to go…

  11. hey (ois rena?
    i dont know who she is…… even though i read the whole book!!!
    seriously who is rena?
    anybody who is she?

  12. @(O: Who’s Rena? and Athena’s Roman equivalent is Minerva. Also, Riordan said that Percy β€œhas had his series” (Percy & the Olympians). I presume this means that he will play a role, but nothing will be from his POV.

  13. Nad @( o : I also hope that NOONE EXCEPT ANNABETH say they’re percy’s girlfriend. It would be messed up. πŸ™

  14. @(o: Who is Rena you keep talking about and i had some of the same questions about the oath of the big three but i don’t think it applied to the romans but it might.

  15. The book is ah-mazing! It is more advanced writing than the other books but still fabulous. I can’t stand not reading the next book in the series!!!!!!! Its almost like he stopped in the middle of the book and then made the rest another book so those that read it would buy it. Well he probally did but still!!!!!!!!

  16. Wow! So many people posted comments. Anyways, I think that the next book, The Son of Neptune, is going to be from Percy’s point of view. Like, you know how this one was from Jason’s, Piper’s, and Leo’s. Well, I think that the next one will be about Percy and a couple kids he met but doesn’t remember because he lost his memory, and also didn’t actually meet them. But of course he doesn’t know that because he can’t remember who he’s met or not. The kids at camp Roman half blood will probably all be freaking out about Jason being missing and probably aren’t going to be as friendly as camp Greek half blood kids. Also, I think that maybe they find out about camp Greek half blood and find out about who Percy really is after they send him on some sort of quest and then Percy and his new friends go off to sail to camp Greek half blood and Percy and Jason miss each other while they’re both crossing the sea. Also, Percy would probably be faster at getting to camp Greek half blood than Jason would be to sail to camp Roman half blood because he controls the water. I also think that Percy’s new friends are going to be kids that haven’t been claimed at camp Roman half blood. You know, like Piper and Leo weren’t claimed at camp Greek half blood when Jason met them. I hope that nobody there claims to be Percy’s girlfriend. That would be terrible! I also hope that Jason stays with Piper. They seem to be right for each other, don’t they? I think that Poseidon might communicate with Percy in some way. Leo and Piper both had a got to talk to their parents in their dreams. I think that the reason why Jason didn’t hear from his dad, Jupiter, is because he is the one who ordered the “no god talk to their kid” thing in the first place. I have a feeling that Jason’s girlfriend, Rena, is going to end up liking Percy but Percy still likes Annabeth. This second book could get a little weird. I personally think the plot is going to get all tangled. I don’t really care, though, because I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! I wonder who Jason’s friends are children of. Maybe Rena is a daughter of Athena or the Roman equivalent of Athena. Then Annabeth would have another sister. Also, if the big three oath about having no more half bloods was made while they were in their Greek forms does that mean just no Greek children? Could that mean that they could have Roman kids? Or is that included in the oath, too? If it isn’t that would mean Percy might have some Roman siblings. I really hope he doesn’t because that would make Percy’s water powers less unique if some other kid has them too. Then, it also seems as if Poseidon knew what Hera planned on doing, doesn’t it? He said that Percy might have some siblings. Percy said that he couldn’t tell if he was joking or not. If he wasn’t kidding, maybe Poseidon meant that he would have some Roman siblings. Maybe Poseidon knows something everyone else doesn’t.

  17. my favorite character so far would is percy over all but the main characters i would have to choose to leo

  18. i just found out that a book comes out every year!!!!!this is not fair!!

    book three:2012
    book four:2013
    book five:2014


  20. @ Lt. Narwhal Yeah, he’s cool too. πŸ™‚ but my favorite charater over all will always be Annabeth. But like the main people, i like Piper best. I would so like fire powers though…

  21. @sarah kate me favorite character in the book is leo. he’s got the cool fire powers. 8)

  22. @Saphiea Hey you are back! We missed you! πŸ™‚ I think your opinion is awesome! I really hope Percy remembers Annabeth and all of the people he was close to. But i don’t know. πŸ™ I really like the book so far! I haven’t gotten to finish though because I’m like really busy. :/ My favorite character is definitely Piper! Who’s your favorite? Anyways, gotta run! COMMENT PLZ!

  24. Saphiea daughter of Pluto ur opinions are great!!!!!
    i dont know anybody wholl comment badly on ur opinions!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  25. Hi everyone, I’m baaaaack! Yes, Saphiea has arrived to camp! I’m really sad about Percy, but think of it this way, what happened to Jayson must have happened to Percy. Also the next book is called son of Neptune, so they reunite in book 2 that’s my point.Saphiea has left the building! Hey, comment on my opinions!

  26. and percy since he didn’t have a brother or sister probably remembers either annabeth, tyson, or sally jackson( his mom), or grover and they will definitly help him get back on his normal camp half-blood schedule and maybe he’ll know nico too.

  27. Like i said earlier you ned to wait a year for every book to come out coz he is writing the Kane chronicles at the same time but i think that camp half-blood series are better.

  28. i love all of the rick riordan books and i am so gladed he made another one of the greek books. when i finished percy jackson i felt like i was going to die!!! now i am celebrating!!! yay!!! πŸ™‚

  37. and also i can’t believe they didn’t have mrs. O’leary in the book she was awesome.

  38. Stupid kane cronicles is slowing him down too much he should just make the camp half-blood books sry but the greek series is a lot better.8)

  39. I wonder if the roman camp would be as accepting as camp-half blood…. would they kill him if they found out he was from camp-half blood???? and i wonder who are his ‘new friends’ at the camp??
    post thoughts please!!

  40. SPOILER:
    Leo is the son of Hephaestus
