"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't wait to read" selection is:
Heroes of Olympus #2: The Son of Neptune
Publication Date: October 4, 2011
In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a blood-chilling 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. . .With an ever-expanding cast of brave-hearted heroes and formidable foes, this second book in The Heroes of Olympus series offers all of the action, pathos, and humor that Rick Riordan fans crave.
I don't know who's looking forward to this book more...me or my daughter. She's the one who got me into the Percy Jackson series, and now we're loving the Heroes of Olympus series. The Lost Hero was awsome, and we can't wait for book number two!
