Read the First Two Chapters of THE LOST HERO by Rick Riordan

Back in April, Rick Riordan announced that he’s writing a sequel series to the Percy Jackson books called The Heroes of Olympus. The first book in the series, The Lost Hero, will be released October 12, 2010. The first two chapters of The Lost Hero are available if you go to and enter the password: newhero.

The new series will take place at Camp Half-Blood, but Riordan isn’t saying which of his previous characters will make an appearance (although you might have a pretty good idea after reading the second chapter). The identity of the lost hero is also a big secret.

Check out the official summary of The Lost Hero:

Jason has a problem. He doesn’t remember anything before waking up on a school bus holding hands with a girl. Apparently she’s his girlfriend Piper, his best friend is a kid named Leo, and they’re all students in the Wilderness School, a boarding school for “bad kids.” What he did to end up here, Jason has no idea—except that everything seems very wrong.

Piper has a secret. Her father has been missing for three days, and her vivid nightmares reveal that he’s in terrible danger. Now her boyfriend doesn’t recognize her, and when a freak storm and strange creatures attack during a school field trip, she, Jason, and Leo are whisked away to someplace called Camp Half-Blood. What is going on?

Leo has a way with tools. His new cabin at Camp Half-Blood is filled with them. Seriously, the place beats Wilderness School hands down, with its weapons training, monsters, and fine-looking girls. What’s troubling is the curse everyone keeps talking about, and that a camper’s gone missing. Weirdest of all, his bunkmates insist they are all—including Leo—related to a god.

Rick Riordan, the best-selling author of the Percy Jackson series, pumps up the action and suspense in The Lost Hero, the first book in The Heroes of Olympus series. Fans of demi-gods, prophesies, and quests will be left breathless–and panting
