Percy Jackson News & Sneak Peak at 'The Last Olympian'

The much anticipated final book in the hugely popular Percy Jackson and the Olympians series from Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian , hits bookstores and library shelves May 5th, 2009.
As a battle for the fate of Western civilization is waged on the streets of Manhattan, the mysterious prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds...
Sounds great doesn't it? So, what are fans to do with themselves for the 58 days (and counting) until they can get their hands on this book? First, I'd suggest re-reading all of the books in the series so they are fresh in your mind. Don't forget the recently released series guide The Demigod Files. The guide contains character profiles and interviews, as well as three original short stories featuring 'Percy Jackson's most dangerous adventures never before committed to paper'.
Fans who haven't done so already should also check out the official website. Here you'll find trivia games, mazes, word puzzles, instructions for a Percy improv theatre and even a sneak peak at chapter one of the new book.

More Rick Riordan news:

  • RICK RIORDAN IS COMING TO CANADA! Rick will be in Vancouver, BC on Thursday, May 7th.
  • The Hollywood Reporter and Variety announced key casting news for The Lightning Thief movie. The movie, which is being eyed as a potential franchise by the studio, will be directed by Chris Columbus (who also directed the first two Harry Potter films). Set to begin shooting this April, the movie will star Logan Lerman as Percy. Brandon T. Jackson also has signed on to co-star.
