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. Oh! Also she loves music and heranimal is a tiger, her food is cherries and her item is a black rose that can shape-shift(it turns into Sikver Lining. Its like Riptide, but can change into anything) man, I need a life!

  2. @son of Neptune: Saphiea prefers an upturned nose, poker-straight jet-black hair and eyes to match. And she can magically change clothes, but enjoys nailing black clothes with colorful paitballs to give her clothes a splash of color. Sha has a wicked sword called Silver Lining; nightmare black with a silver steak. (scary I’ve thought about that so much)

  3. Who’s the best god? IT’S EASY Poseidon!

  7. So as soon as I get a membership, I’ll write everything about Saphiea on fanfic. I’ll tell you if I get a membership!!

  8. Also, if I were a goddess. Wait. You all probably know I made Saphiea up. In my own little world,well, Saphiea IS a goddess! So, I wold be, Saphiea, Goddess of Music and Disguises (she can shape-shift)

  9. @ Sarah Kate:; Hmmm, DEFINEITLY Athena!
    – likes disigning
    -loves reading
    Totally Athena!!!

  10. Hey everybody! I have a question! I have blonde hair, love to sing, dance, read, joke around, act, write books, design stuff, and listen to music! Who is my godly parent??? And who would i be in the PJO series??? Thank you! PLz comment!!! -Sarah Kate

  11. okay i have a crazy question……….

  12. oops sorry theres a lot of sarahs so its sarah kate,……. hahah

    who agress with me??
    πŸ˜‰ please comment!!!

  13. saphiea and sarah ur opinions r like the best opinions ever!!
    go greek gods and percy and annabeth!!!!
    πŸ˜‰ nice comments u two!!!

  14. Yeah, I’ll have to read The Lost Hero again to get an idea on new characters, powers, the ROMAN CAMP, etc. I can’t wait till Thanksgiving Break, when I’ll read it again.

  15. Saphiea ur rite u do have cool powers
    but i think i got a cool power too but it would be cool to have fire powers like leo

  16. Fun fact about Saphiea: she loves mythbusters!
    “I reject your reality and substitute my own”- Adam Savage

  17. @son of Neptune; if Greek gods and Egytpion gods fought, Greeks would win! Greek gods are waaaaaaay cooler πŸ˜‰ (at least to me)

  18. @Son of Neptune Definately Percy, and i SO would pick Annabeth! AWESOME! AND i think the greek gods would win. πŸ™‚

  19. Sapiea:
    nice answer! and i totatlly agree!! it would be cool to fly but to sink thousands of feet and underwater is sick!!! πŸ˜‰

  20. I read the lost hero again. I wish I could charmspeak people! But, I’m a child of Hades, which means I can summon the living dead. So, you know, I got a sweet power too.

  21. Saphiea:
    ur rite it would be pretty cool
    if the greek gods and egyptian gods started having war which side do u think would one?
    plez comment!!!!!!!!!

  22. Saphiea, daughter of Hades

    Yeah. Thoth also gets peeved about Hermes later in the book. Also, Mr. Riordan said that in the very distant future, if he’s sure we can all keep grips on gods and mythology and characters, he might try a cross-over. Here’s hopin’! (That’s one of my catchphrases)

  23. Oh. My. Gods. Did you know that Rick incorporated the Greek gods into the Kane Chronicles???? I’m not kiddin around here!!!! (sorry that’s kinda one of my taglines) but in The Red Pyramid on pj.52 they were talking about Manhattan and Amos says:” Manhattan has other problems. Other gods. Its best we stay separate” I know I hyped that all up, but that’s it. But still, it’s kinda cool. Comment please!

  24. @Son of Neptune; I kinda like the Lighning thief better because Jayson isn’t as totally awesome as Percy. Just normal awesome. I dunno. πŸ˜‰

  25. Seven halfbloods shall answer the call. Here’s my figuring. Parentheses mean ‘maybe’:

    Greek Roman

    Piper Jason

    So if I’m right, and Percy and Annabeth are one of them, there are two left to find. It’s probably going to be Greeks and Romans.

  26. haha thanks for all the nice comments!! πŸ˜‰
    thanks so much!!! πŸ˜‰
    well anyway,………….
    i think that percy is a stronger demigod and i like annabeth better.
    who do u think is a stronger demigod percy or jason?
    and if u had to choose…… who would choose annabeth or piper?
    plez comment!!!!!!!!!

  27. @sarah ya i agree too, if you can picture the book as a movie in your head you can make it the way you want a little. And it helps you connect to the book. πŸ˜€

  28. BEST BOOK EVER!Leo has Charles Becondroff’s bed.Jasons sister is Thalia.Percy is at roman camp after all.Pipers the daughter of Aphrodite.RICK RIORDAN ,best auther EVER.Hopefully this series will be better than the Percy Jackson series.I can’t wait until fall 2011,for the son of neptune.I’m read’n the Red Pyramid now… until next time,love luke hanley.

    I just watched that video. I love the books ‘secret name’! And his FACE when he says it is just hilarious! And the Festus toy at the end. Funny! People, you’ve got to watch that.

    Secret Name: 1:31-2:41 (You have to watch the whole time given to understand it)
    Festus Toy: 8-8:05

  30. @carrie Post 785
    Nice. Can’t wait to watch it.

    @Son of Neptune Post 768
    Yep. It’s more fun when you actually like, create a movie in your head while you read. Then it’s always the way you want it to look. Thanks for agreeing with me.

    Somewhere up there I read a post that asked who liked The Lost Hero. LOVED IT!!!

  31. @Son of Neptune Thank you! I will try that out. πŸ˜‰ And i don’t know which one i like better. Hmm… probably The Lightning Theif cause i really like Annabeth. πŸ™‚ MY FAV CHARACTER!!! I really like The Lost Hero too. But that’s my answer.
