Percy Jackson author Rick Riordan headlined a charity reading event with Maximum Ride author James Patterson last night. Riordan revealed secrets from the next installment of the The Heroes of Olympus series, The Son of Neptune.
Percy Jackson will definitely be back, along with Tyson the Cyclops, Grover Underwood, three new demigods, and a bulletproof elephant. He added: “there are other reasons besides Percy that the book is called The Son of Neptune.”
