I just read Rick Riordan's blog, and I found out that the second book of Kane Chronicles comes out May 3rd 2011. He'll reveal the official cover, the title, and some sample chapters in January 2011. One thing he revealed is that there's gonna be a new character who's possibly his favorite mythological god ever. That particular info made me more curious. He/she must have been a heck of a god/goddess ever. Hmm... he said GOD, so the new character has to be a guy.
Well, I'm excited for the release of book 2, mostly because I'm running out of books to read and I need a good, refreshing book to satisfy me.
