Did you like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan? I did. I've honestly read better writing but the adventure and excitement was top notch and I love LOVE LOVE the idea. Actually, I'm quite jealous that I didn't think of it first. Sigh. That's a lot of research though and I don't know that I have that much time on my hands.
The past few days I've managed to carve out a little bit more though (thanks for Sesame Street and Care Bears) and have read the first book in his next installment of demigod disasters: The Lost Hero.
I had heard that he was going to continue on this theme but I was surprised that he's continuing with Percy Jackson and all of the heroes of Camp Half-Blood. With a twist.
There are Greek gods and demigods of course, but now there are also Roman. I don't want to say too much because this book is one big mystery and I like that. Same fast-pased, high adventure style as the others but the focus is on three entirely new heroes who are very endearing in their own ways. And of course an earth-shattering enemy. Literally.
Book 2 comes out in October and I'm already excited.
Well, with Harry Potter ending, I'm glad I have something else to look forward to. Which speaking of Harry Potter, there's something about a major announcement I think . . . hold on. Rowling's announcement is here. Sounds interesting don't you think?
