Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods

Today, Rick Riordan released the cover to a companion novel to the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series.

From Rick Riordan’s Website:

Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider’s view with plenty of ‘tude in this illustrated collection.

A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, Can we do this anonymously? Because I don’t need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week. 

So begins Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic–and sarcastic asides–to the classics. He explains how the world was created, then gives readers his personal take on a who’s who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. Percy does not hold back. “If you like horror shows, blood baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read on, because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that.”

Dramatic full-color illustrations throughout by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco make this volume–a must for home, library, and classroom shelves–as stunning as it is entertaining.

Read a Deleted Scene from THE LAST OLYMPIAN

Rick Riordan has released a deleted scene from PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS: THE LAST OLYMPIAN!

The-Last-Olympian-Wallpapers-percy-jackson-and-the-olympians-books-10744934-1024-768

The scene focuses on Percy Jackson encountering his childhood nemesis, Nancy Bobofit, unconscious in Manhattan when Morpheus puts the city to sleep just before Kronos’ attack.

The lights of the city were blinking on. I guess they were on automatic timers. The streetlamps in the park glowed, making the lanes and the trees look spooky – like we needed any more spookiness.
Thalia stopped and tensed, like she was catching a scent. “I’ll be back. Need to check the Hunters on the right flank.”
Her bow appeared in her hands and she disappeared into the trees.
We stepped over bodies of sleeping New Yorkers, moving them to safety when we could. We were just coming to a stone bridge on the northern side of the park when we came across a dozen kids, all slumped next to a pretzel stand, like they’d been lined up to buy snacks.
Grover yelped. “Percy . . . look.”

Rick Riordan Reads New Excerpt from HOUSE OF HADES

Disney Books has posted a great new clip of Rick Riordan reading a brand spanking new excerpt from HOUSE OF HADES! It’s a little less than 2 minutes long, but it comes from a meaty scene featuring Percy and Annabeth, smack in the middle of the book!

“The Phlegethon? Sounds like a marathon for hocking spit balls.”
