The best-selling author behind Percy Jackson and the Olympians will soon be returning to Percy Jackson’s world, this time in a book focused on Nico di Angelo, the son of Hades who first appeared way back in The Titan’s Curse. The story will be co-written with Mark Oshiro (Anger Is a Gift).
The new book, which does not yet have a title, picks up with Nico in the aftermath of the most recent Percy Jackson-related series, The Trials of Apollo. Nico lost his friend Jason Grace in that series, but still has a ray of sunshine in his life in the form of his boyfriend, Will Solace, the son of Apollo.
In The Tower of Nero, the final book in The Trials of Apollo, Nico started hearing a voice calling out to him from Tartarus, the deepest, darkest part of his father’s realm, the Underworld. Nico believes this voice to be that of Bob the Titan, who sacrificed himself to help Percy and Annabeth Chase escape Tartarus in the previous Heroes of Olympus series. In the new story, Nico and Will are determined to rescue Bob, no matter what Camp Half-Blood counselors Chiron and Mr. D have to say about it.
