So, now that The Blood of Olympus has been released, we all expected that Riordan related news would die down for a while. WRONG!!!!
There have been two recent developments in the world of Rick Riordan recently: the confirmation of a second PJ Greek Gods book, entitled Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes, and the first publisher summary of Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer, as well as the release date, October 6, 2015.
Here’s the summary:
Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .
And here’s an image of the new Greek Heroes book:
