My "Waiting on..." pick pulls at the kid in my heart. First, there was the Percy Jackson series that I fell in love with. Riordan then continued on this journey with The Lost Hero and introduced a great new set of characters and plot. Needless to say, it dug its hooks in me just as much as the other. I love it when not only does the author continue an amazing story, but also mixes the old and new characters seamlessly. If you've not guessed by now, this week I am anxiously awaiting:

The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
Hardcover, 384 pages
Expected publication: October 4th 2011 by Hyperion Book CH

From Goodreads:

In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a quest:

Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.

Who are the other four mentioned in the prophecy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea...

Happy reading, friends!
