Riordan plans new series invoking Greek gods

NEW YORK The author of the million-selling "Percy Jackson" children's books is launching a new adventure saga in October.

Jackson's "The Heroes of Olympus" series begins with the "The Lost Hero," set in Percy Jackson's old training ground, Camp Half-Blood, but with new characters.

Riordan's new series was announced Monday by the Disney Book Group's Disney-Hyperion imprint.

In the spring, Riordan started an Egyptian-themed series, "The Kane Chronicles."
