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…

  9. Heyyyyy Mr.Unknown
    Itss nice adding a new converser (idk if thats a word) since we are all like running out of things to say.

  10. @Mr.Unknown- Hello(: Welcome to our conversations of a bunch of different things Lol(:

  11. @Cabin6girl-
    i know!! :) how bout we talk about who are gunna be the 7 in the procephy?

  12. Hello, peoples! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but since school is almost out, my teachers are scrambling to get testing done. And we did a writing contest a couple weeks ago and I just want to know who won! Ugh!…Anyway…

    On my fanfiction, I’m doing a Percy story now! It’s Percy Jackson and Farscape, but if you don’t know what Farscape is, I explain a little inside. I don’t have any reviews yet, so I came here. My name is Goldenstar13, and the story is Percy Jackson meets Farscape. See you guys there!

    P.S: I got The Throne of Fire the other day and I can’t wait to finish it! The two siblings are so cocky it’s hilarious!

  13. I know I’m extremely late on this comment, but I just found this site, so forgive me. I need to tell somebody else desperately how I feel! I literally threw my book at the wall when I read that last sentence! I can’t believe it! Do you guys know what the heck this means?!?!?! Oh My Gosh!!!!!! Percy has forgotten Annabeth and Rick is probably going to have Percy fall in love with some roman girl! The evil EVIL GUY!!!! O.K, maybe, just maybe, I’m counting my chickens before they hatch, but I’m sure that that’s what he’s going to do! What d’ya think?

  14. Sarah, The Writer:
    of course!!!

    Bookworm:
    lolz that is wut i thought of at first but idk wutz going to happen

  15. @Son of Neptune
    Ok so i think that ummm definitly percy, annnabeth, grover, Jason, piper,Leo, and idk maybe thalia or maybe clarrisse will be back. or some person from the roman camp. like that (i forgot how to spell her name) but Rekha hmmm or the dakota person. now all we have to do is wait possibly 6 months. unless of course rick loves his fans so much that he releases the book 6 months earlier than planned :)

  16. @Bookworm- Wow, lol. Im very excited to read more about them, too! :D And, Percy BETTER NOT fall in love with some roman chick! All threw the Percy Jackson series I was waiting for them to go out! They are not going to fall out of love!!!! Lol(:

    @Sarah, the Writer- I’ll be sure to check it out! Im always looking for a good Percy Jackson fanfic. :D
    Hey, will you look at mine, too? My user name is : AnnabethJackson14 and my story is called ‘Kaitlyn Montoya’. Please read and review(:

  17. @Sarah: YAYAYAYAYA!!!! Finally! I’m so DANG excited to read it!

    @Bookworm: lol well you’re excited. haha Don’t worry. They’ll definitely fall in love again if Percy does fall in love with someone else. It won’t be for long! (It better not be…)

    @Son of Neptune: Definitely Jason, Piper, and Leo. Maybe… that son of Iris? I feel so bad cuz I forgot his name. lol I’m hoping Rick doesn’t use old characters for the prophecy. At least not most of them. I’d like him to bring in a whole bunch of new characters too and use them as some of the 7. But he must keep the old characters in the books, too. Just not as the MAIN main characters. :)

  18. Step 1: Uh…I had to delet the Percy fanfiction. Sorry…

    Step 2: Some good Percy Jackson fics are Percy Jackson and Hearts on Ice, and I found a Son of Neptune story that rocks! Hearts on Ice is by ProphecyS and Son of Neptune is by Eleos.

    Step 3: Brace yourself before reading this. I have found the release date for the Son of Neptune! OCTOBER 4TH!!!! You may now scream.

  19. Okay, I need need need to write a Son of Neptune fanfiction. More or less, it’ll be in the form of Lost Hero, only with Percy. Sound good?

  20. @Sarah the Writer- Thats definitly something I would read!(: You should do it. (:

  21. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
