Read Chapter 1 of THE SON OF NEPTUNE (The Heroes of Olympus Book 2) by Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan and James Patterson, both popular authors among kids and adults, appeared last night at a special event in New York. Hosted by Al Roker, the event was held to benefit First Book, an organization that provides books to children in need. As part of his presentation last night, Riordan revealed the cover of his highly anticipated second book in The Heroes of Olympus Series, The Son of Neptune (you can see the cover above).

And there’s even more great news for readers: the first chapter of The Son of Neptune is now available online. Yay! After you read the preview, come back here and tell us what you think in the comments!

The Son of Neptune will be in bookstores on October 4, 2011.

Synopsis of The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan:

In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a quest:

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.

Who are the other four mentioned in the prophesy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea. . . .
