It seems like only yesterday that we were doing a happy dance at the release of The Lost Hero… Yet somehow almost TEN WHOLE YEARS have passed since the birth of The Heroes of Olympus series. 2020 marks the decade, but anniversary editions are coming this fall, featuring stellar cover art by Nilah Magruder.
If it feels surreal for us fans, it must be more so for Uncle Rick… Here, in his own words:
Ten years since The Lost Hero was first published? How is that possible? I’m so grateful to all the readers who came along for the ride. I’ve always been fortunate to have fantastic artwork on the jackets of my books, including the original covers of the Heroes of Olympus series. But it’s exciting to see new interpretations, too, especially by an illustrator as talented as Nilah Magruder. Her experience as a storyboarder and graphic novel artist shows in the dramatic scenes she created for the series. I love the way she highlighted different characters and managed to feature mythological monsters, too. Her fresh and accessible style will attract a whole new generation of readers. Also, I think the new look perfectly complements the Rick Riordan Presents titles we’ve published so far. —Rick Riordan
