Yes! I was about to ask you if you knew anything about this yet. :P But here you've posted it, and my life is temporarily fulfilled. ^^

Sheila said...

I'm glad I could help you find fulfillment, Spirithunter. :-) I forgot to mention that the book will be published on May 6, 2008.

Spirithunter said...

Ah. Right before my brother's birthday. Perfect timing. :P

Oh, and speaking of my brother, he wants to know if Riordan will be going on tour...

Sheila said...

I haven't heard anything about a tour, but if I do, I'll be sure to post it. If he does, it will probably be in May when the new book is published.

You sure read a lot of books, Spirithunter, don't you? :-)

Fantastic!
I still haven't read The Titan's Curse yet, because I'm waiting for it in paperback, and I'm swamped beneath books to review, books to write and books that my editor wants fixed before the release date.

LOL, but I love these books, being the mythology geek I am, and can't wait to read this one.

Sheila said...

I know what you mean about being swamped, LOL. Titan's Curse is really good - probably better than Sea of Monsters. I love how Apollo is portrayed! You should definitely read it.

Spirithunter said...

Yes, I do read a lot of books. You should see my bookshelf... it's filled to the brim, and I've gotten rid of a lot so I've probably had twice that total...

The Titan's Curse was probably my favorite. I didn't like Artemis that much, but Apollo more than makes up for it. He is amazing. I love his haikus... he's so random and awesome... XD

Sheila said...

That's awesome that you like to read so much, Spirithunter!

Sheila said...

Wow, five times. That's awesome. I agree that The Lightning Thief was my favorite, too.

I don't know if he'll post the first chapter, but if he does it'll probably be closer to the publication date when he does.

I LOVE THIS SERIES! I'm just a boy in 6th grade who read all of the books that came out in 5th grade! I love Rick's writing, it's like a kid is writing it! I can relate a lot to Percy. You never really see Percy's face except the darkned image on the " Titan's Curse". I'm not trying to be the annoying person, but I kind of look like percy. Plus I'm an actor so I really want to play him in the movie that comes out.

Connie said...

OMG! This is the best series ever! I still haven't gotten over the third book. I need this book to hurry up and come out.
