OLD ENEMIES AWAKEN AS CAMP HALF-BLOOD'S NEW ARRIVALS PREPARE FOR WAR
When Jason, Piper and Leo crash land at Camp Half-Blood, they have no idea what to expect.

But rumours of a terrible curse - and a missing hero - are flying around camp. It seems Jason, Piper and Leo are the chosen ones to embark on a terrifying new quest, which they must complete by the winter solstice. In just four days time. Can the trio succeed on this deadly mission - and what must they sacrifice in order to survive?

Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults.

He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco.

But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction.

Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.

  • The Sequel Series We've Been Waiting For!

    by on

    A new cast (with some oldies including Annabelle and Percy missing) and a take on Roman gods will capture new readers and entertain fans of the old series!

    Read the 5-book Percy Jackson series first to get the most mileage out of this, though the gamut of new characters will keep all entertained.

    Riordan's books are fantastic at making you feel you are actually there when his characters travelling around (and under) the world (like a James Bond film)!

    Also great for the young at heart!

    Oil your fingers up now as this is a real page-turner!
