Get Ready to Go Back to Camp Half-Blood!

16 Sep

Rick Riordan may have finished up his best-selling Percy Jackson series last year, but that doesn’t mean he’s just sitting at home and relaxing. Incredibly, Rick is launching not one, but TWO new series this year, and we just couldn’t let that go without a big celebration!

Starting today, you can visit www.scholastic.com/rickriordan to check out all things Rick! There you’ll find special sneak peeks at chapters from the new series; character profiles; polls; pre-order information for his latest book, The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero; and three exclusive videos featuring Scholastic Book Clubs’ Q & A’s with Rick!


The first book in his Egyptian mythology series, The Kane Chronicles, entered the world with a bang last May with the publication of The Red Pyramid. In it, we were introduced to Sadie and Carter Kane—who take up their family’s quest and find themselves in a world where ancient Egyptian gods continue to exert their power over us puny mortals. We already can’t wait to read the next book in the series!


In Rick’s latest series, The Heroes of Olympus, Rick returns to the world of Camp Half-Blood where demigods struggle to understand who they are, and what their purpose is in this mortal world. The first book in the five-book series, The Lost Hero, is set to release nationwide on October 12, when a brand-new set of demigods will inherit a quest. But to be successful, they’ll need the help of some familiar demigods along the way….


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.


Scholastic Book Clubs is now offering The Lost Hero for pre-order in Arrow and TAB October.
