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…

  5. @Cabin6girl- HEY(: We missed ya! 😀 Glad you had fun over spring break!

  6. @William post 1558- I know!!!!! I cant wait to read the next book!!! Its gonna be AWESOME!(:

    I know we’ve probably talked about this before, but Who do you guys think the 7 demigods are gonna be? Im going to tell you who I HOPE it is:
    And I dont know about the last one. 😀

    And Im sorry if I’ve already brough up this conversation before. I forget easily. 😀

  7. @Anonymous: Aww thanks! 😉

    @Mariah: Awww thank you!! Hmm… I think it should be Jason, Piper, Leo, and maybe… Annabeth?? I’m hoping most of the 7 are new people though. 😉 I think that would be cool to have a bunch of new faces. hahaha I forget a lot too so… I don’t know if you’ve asked before haha 🙂

    @Cabin6girl: OMG yay!! You’re back!! We missed you!! Yeah, the randomness has continued haha

  8. @Sarah Kate- Yeah, I want to have some new people too, but i reeeaaaallly dont want to let go of Percy and Annabeth. :(((((

  9. @Lacyyyyy: HOW COULD YOU HATE IT?? IT’S PURE AWESOME! haha 😉

    @Annabeth: We missed you!!! GOSH! Why does everyone keep leaving!! haha Just kidding 😉 Glad you’re back!!

  10. Well since im so tired i dont feel like looking to see who asked abt the 7 demigods. However, i think its going to be Annabeth, Percy, Grover, Jason, Piper, Leo, and Thalia. Maybe Nico will fill in for somebody if they die or something. (Kinda like Bianca) Hmmmmmmmm so yea thats my 7 for the prophecy quest thing.

  11. @Son of Neptune- No, theres also Jacklebug, but your mostly the only one. 😀

    @Lacyyyy- I agree with Sarah Kate: How can you??!! Its one of the best books!

    @Annabeth- HEY! I missssss youuu! Why did you have to move???? 🙁

    @Cabin6girl- Yeah, I like those 7. ;D I want some of the old and some of the new. 😀

  12. UGH. I wish my sister would quit getting on my computer! She put up the last comment and used Annabeths name. Sorry guys.

  13. Im the real Annnabeth. (Not like the REAL one-but the one on here. Oh, you know what I mean!) 😀

    mariah: Dont be so hard on your sister. Its fine 🙂

  14. Sarah~ I dont know. It just isnt good. I dont like anything that has to do w/ magic. It just doesnt appeal to me.

  15. @Annabeth- Im not mad anymore. 😀
    But seriously, why did you move???? :((

  16. @Annabeth (I’m not sure if ther eal one said this or not) but I’m actually a girl.

    @Mariah, haha, yeah it’s pretty nice in Virginia, a little boring sometimes (and really slow internet connection) but nice. =) and Yeah, I hope those sre the 7 too, I also have no ised who the last one is, hopefully someone new.

    @Sarah Kate, SERIOUSLY? Winning the talet show?!?! thats awesome! Good job, make sure to give us all a shout out if you ever make it on to American Idol! haha =)

  17. @Mariah: I can totally understand that. Of course I want them to still be in the books but… Percy has already been in A LOT of prophecies. I’m hoping he’ll still be in there along with other awesome old characters but I would like most of the 7 to be new people. 😉

    @Son of Neptune: Looks like haha We’re glad to have you!!

    @Annabeth: haha I’m glad you agree with me 🙂

    @Lacyyyyyyy23: Ahh I see. Well, everyone has their differences. 🙂

  18. @JackleBug: Yeah, I was going to say… I thought you were a girl! And I was right! How smart I am. Anyways, haha. Aww! Thank you! haha I will 😉

  19. @Son of Neptune
    Well you have an interesting comment for Annabeth

    Welcome Back!!!!! Havent seen u in awhile.

    Well. I personally think you’re acting the ppl on youtube that go to a song/video just so that way they can say that they hate it. I also think if you’re going to act like you hate the book then why come onto a blog about it??????

  20. jacklebug: Yeah, that was Mariahs little sister that said that. Lol. Not me. 🙂

    cabin6girl and son of neptune: Thnk you. 🙂 Its good to be back!

    mariah: Im really sorry I had to move. My dad got a new job in Kansas. 🙁 I’ll try and visit soon!

  21. @Jacklebug- Theres not very good internet reception here either!:DD

    @Sarah Kate- Yeah, I understand. Im more like that. ‘Cause I really like Piper, Leo and Jason. I just want them to be in there SOMEWHERE. No matter how little the part is. :DD But I want jason and piper to KISS. ;D

    @Cabin6girl Post 1585- I agree with you. I hate it when people do that. If you dont like the song or video or people or whatever why look it up? It doesnt make sense.

  22. Cabin6girl~ Well, what if that person wants to get they’re point across that they dont like the music or book? They’re not aloud to speak they’re views?

  23. @Lacyyyyyy23: I think it’s good that you spoke your views. And you did it in a… nicer way than most people haha So you’re good with me 😉

  24. @Cabin6girl and Mariah: I do agree though that it’s sometimes annoying when people just go somewhere to “tear it/the person down” if you know what I mean. haha

  25. @Lacyyyyyyy23- Well sure, you can get your point across, because obviously we can’t stop you. I just think that Cabin6girl was trying to say ask ‘why come on a website where there are tons of fans of this book, talking about it and why they like it, and say “Well I hate the book”‘ It just seems sort of pointless is all. Anyway, I really don’t think she was trying to offend you, just express her discontent.

  26. Hello, guys! I have an announcement to make! I now have a fanfiction! I know, I’m only twelve, but my friends say that if they didn’t know me, they’d think I was older. I can act a lot older than I truly am. Anyway, because of that annoying two day wait before publishing, I have nothing yet, but I did it last night and it won’t be long. My name is Goldenstar13, and I’m going to start with Warriors and go for Percy and Kane Chronicles later. See y’all there!

  27. Cabin6Girl:
    and why was that an interesting comment???
    going back to post #1589

    ur rite.. u should be aloud to speak your reviews

  28. @Sarah: YOU’RE BACK! and you have a fanfiction!! YAY!! I will check it out 😉

  29. @Son of Neptune
    It was sarcasm because you barely wrote anything.

    @ Lacyyyyyy23
    Well yea what JackleBug was saying is what i was trying to express in my comment.
    I dont blame you if u hate the series or anything (well maybe i do cuz i take my favorite things personally) but yea i dont see ur point in coming here.

  30. @Sarah the Writer- I’ll definitly look into it!(:

    @Sarah Kate- I also believe people can speak they’re views as long as they speak them nicely, and she was..so all cool here.(:
    But how can anyone not like this book? I mean, COME ON. Its awesome! 😀

  31. Cabin6girl~I came here because I was surfing the internet and came across this and just put what I thought.

  32. @Cabin6girl: I’m the same way. I don’t like it when people start hating on my favorite things. haha That reminds me of a song…

    @Lacyyyyyy23: It’s good to express your views though. Just don’t go over board with your hating 😉

  33. Lets all be friends!!!(: haha, I know, a little random. 😛

  34. @Lacyyyyyy23
    So yea why would u be searching up THe lost hero if u hate it. Im not trying to be picky or snooty Im actually agreeing with Mariah to be friends but im just asking.

  35. Mariah, daughter of alkjlkadkj~ I was kind of talking to the Cabin6girl chick. Not you.

  36. Gee, @Lacyyyyyy23 and Cabin6Girl, this is sorta getting fightyerish, and Lacyyyyyy23, I really mean you no offense, but why come on here and say you hate something that everybody else on here loves and then start arguing with someone?

  37. Cabin6Girl:
    u think i was being sarcastic?.. well, u were wrong… its nice to have people back in the conversation…

  38. @Mariah: hahaha Let’s all be friends! xD You’re awesome haha

    @Lacyyyyyy23: Don’t get upset with us. 😉 We’re not ganging up on you. It’s just… THIS BOOK IS SO AWESOME! … At least I think so… But I think it’s good you came here. Everybody has a different view on things. Did you like Rick’s first series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians?

  39. Well I took the fcat today. I think I did good. Now all I have is tomorrow to finish up.

  40. It kinda seems like your ganging up because your all talking to me about ‘How good this book is’ if it was that good there would be a movie about it. K? K.

  41. @Lacyyyyyy23- Okay, I did nothing to you. If you’re just going to hate, please leave this site, cuz this is for people that LIKE the book.

    @Sarah Kate- Haha, thnx!(:

    @Cabin6girl- Sorry I couldnt say this sooner but I’ve been grounded from the computer. But, GOOD LUCK!(:
