Synopsis from Goodreads

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 prophecy? 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...

Why I am waiting....
To be honest, this is all my son's idea. Although I've read, and enjoyed, 'The Lightning Thief', I've not gone past that. I should, and some day I will, but I haven't yet. He, on the other hand, devoured the entire 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' series, and has been asking me to get this one for him since the day he finished 'The Lost Hero'! So I can't wait until it is out!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!


  1. I love these books! I was still slightly skeptical after The Lightning Thief, but they only get better and better! I know your son will love this one, I am eagerly awaiting it myself!

  2. My son and I both loved the PJ series and really need to catch up on this one!

    Thanks for stopping by Book Sake.

  3. I still haven't read any Rick Riordan books yet, but I feel so behind I really have to read them soon.
