New Percy Jackson Series in 2015!

September 24, 2014


Okay, it isn’t exactly a Percy Jackson series. But it is by the same author and sounds like it may be connected in some way.

Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson books, announced this week that he will be releasing a new trilogy based on Norse Mythology: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. The first book in the series will be released October 2015.

Percy Jackson fans immediately picked up on the connection of the last name “Chase” to the main character Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jackson books. Riordan teased “And no, that’s not simply a coincidence.”

You can listened to an archived copy of his webcast from the School Library Journal for more information.

We’re super excited about this new development! Norse mythology is very different from Greek and Roman mythology, but there are also a lot of ways that he can tie them all together. Hopefully Percy and Annabeth will make an appearance at some point!

I like all the Percy Jackson books and so far he’s battled Kronos, The Giants and Mother Earth. Why not make a series where Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter team together to fight Tartarus itself? Let’s say the pit starts regenerating monsters and gives them a path to the world Hades or Thanatos can’t stop, but demigods can. A group of demigods plunge into Tartarus or something in an attempt to stop the pit from rising. I remember in The House of Hades, Tartarus showed himself, why not show him again. A formidable opponent than anything Percy Jacksons faced before!
