Seven Half-Bloods Shall Answer the Call…

Last month, we mentioned how excited we were about the imminent release of the first book in Rick Riordan’s latest series. Well, now it’s finally here! The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero hits bookstores and Scholastic Book Clubs book boxes. We’ve already read the first two chapters of The Lost Hero, and we can’t wait to get our hands on a freshly printed copy to find out what happens to Piper, Jason, Leo, and the rest of the newly discovered Half-Bloods.

To refresh your memory, what we know so far is that a new generation of demigods from Camp Half-Blood will be called upon to take up 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.

What will happen and who they’ll meet along the way is anybody’s guess—will these heroes quarrel with the gods like Percy did? Will they find out who their godly parents are? WILL PERCY APPEAR IN THIS SERIES? What about the prophecy and the new Oracle, Percy’s friend Rachel Elizabeth?! So many questions left unanswered. I’m looking forward to meeting these new characters, but I’m really hoping that this first book will include some familiar faces from the first New York Times best-selling series!

If you pre-ordered The Heroes of Olympus, Book One: The Lost Hero from Scholastic Book Clubs, you should be receiving it soon! If not, you can still purchase it from the Arrow or TAB October or November catalogs.  Visit our Rick Riordan Fan Page to learn more.

      “the foes bear arms at the doors of death” means that it has to be Greek and Roman half bloods. This is because they alway kill each other so they are foes that must come together. So it woulnt be nico and thalia it would be Roman half bloods

    Seven Half Bloods (Jason, Piper, Leo, Annabeth, Percy, Hazel, Frank) shall answer the call. To storm (Jason) or fire (Leo) the world ( World as in Earth as in Gaea) must fall. An Oath to keep (Leo makes a promise in house of hades)with final breath(Why, Leo, Why). And Foes( Greek/Roman or Titan/Monster/Giant/Demigod) bear arms (work together) to the Doors of Death (to make sure things die now!) YEP! I FIGURED OUT THE WHOLE THING! YEY ME!
