Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming books.

The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

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...

Percy Jackson made me a huge fan of Rick Riordan. He was the first one to really get me into the whole Greek mythology thing with YA. I absolutely love them. Maybe his books are more MG but that doesn't taint my love for them one bit. I love that The Heroes of Olympus is an offshoot of Percy Jackson too. Some of the same characters are still a part of the story, but you also get whole new characters to learn about. These are fantastic, fast-paced reads despite the ginormous size. If you haven't read the first in this series, The Lost Hero, you should definitely get on it before this one makes it's debut.


  1. I loved Heroes of Olympus, so I am looking forward to this too!

  2. I love Percy Jackson too! This sounds great!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
