Celebrating a new, digital-interactive ebook in the world of Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan!
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Percy Jackson and the Olympians–a five book series, starring the son of Poseidon and his friends as they figure out their place in the world as demigods, and band together to fight the forces of the Titan Lord Kronos.
As we celebrate Percy Jackson and the Olympians this summer, we’re (re)reading and reviewing all of the books in the original pentalogy (check out all of our reviews so far here), and will be sharing all the Percy Jackson news. Speaking of…
The Demigods of Olympus: An Interactive Adventure
There’s a new interactive ebook outfrom Rick Riordan–a virtual Choose Your Own Adventure experience. (We love Choose Your Own Adventure, and ebooks, and the Olympians series–suffice it to say, we’re excited.)
Your quest begins! Use your demigod skills in this interactive and customizable adventure story written by New York Times #1 best-selling author Rick Riordan. Combining four short stories, The Two-Headed Guidance Counselor, The Library of Deadly Weapons, My Demon Satyr Tea Party, and My Personal Zombie Apocalypse, your choices will have consequences in this first interactive demigod adventure.
Greek Gods & Greek Heroes
Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods has a companion novel and it’s available for preorder: check out Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes, available on Percy’s birthday August 18, 2015. (The cover looks awesome: we want it.)
Who cut off Medusa’s head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on the all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. Told in the funny, irreverent style readers have come to expect from Percy, ( I’ve had some bad experiences in my time, but the heroes I’m going to tell you about were the original old school hard luck cases. They boldly screwed up where no one had screwed up before. . .) and enhanced with vibrant artwork by Caldecott Honoree John Rocco, this story collection will become the new must-have classic for Rick Riordan’s legions of devoted fans–and for anyone who needs a hero. So get your flaming spear. Put on your lion skin cape. Polish your shield and make sure you’ve got arrows in your quiver. We’re going back about four thousand years to decapitate monsters, save some kingdoms, shoot a few gods in the butt, raid the Underworld, and steal loot from evil people. Then, for dessert, we’ll die painful tragic deaths. Ready? Sweet. Let’s do this.
