New Camp Half-Blood Series

Many of you already heard this rumor before, but now it’s officially official. I read it on Rick Riordan’s blog so you know it’s for real. Rick Riordan — author of Percy Jackson & the Olympians and The 39 Clues Book#1: The Maze of Bones — is writing a NEW Camp Half-Blood series with a whole new posse of demigods. The series will be called The Heroes of Olympus, and the title of Book #1 is. . . The Lost Hero.

Riordan reveals nothing on his blog about the series, no hints, no sneak peeks, not even the book cover, nothing except this little intro which only makes me more impatient for the book! (But it’s still better than nothing.)

“After saving Olympus from the evil Titan lord, Kronos, Percy and friends have rebuilt their beloved Camp Half-Blood, where the next generation of demigods must now prepare for a chilling prophecy of their own:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.

An oath to keep with a final breath,

And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.”

Here is the date you need to remember: October 12, 2010. That’s when the book comes out. I know it seems like a long time, but don’t forget we have another totally new Rick Riordan series The Kane Chronicles coming in May, so at least we will have something else really great to read while we’re waiting!

    I don’t know about it. I feel kind of like i don’t know atttached to Percy, Annabeth, and Grover. I don’t think that it would be awesome to have new charcters. Maybe he should just… add new characters but keep the old ones also.

    I already heard about this on his blog, and it’s really frustrating that he won’t tell us anything, but his sons, his wife, and his former editor all love it! (I say “former” because she’s leaving, but she’s getting promoted, I think. Yay!)
    Rick Riordan is the most awesome author ever! (In my opinion, Jude Watson is next [even though I'm still holding a grudge against her for "In Too Deep"], then Patrick Carman.)
