Lost Hero book coverThe Lost Hero, the first book in the new series by Rick Riordan.  Based on the popularity of his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, I bought 2 copies!  In that series, a prophecy foretells the arrival of new heroes to Camp Half-Blood…

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.
