New Series Or Standalone Novel? 'Daughter Of The Deep' By Rick Riordan Announced

Now that Rick Riordan is about to close the curtains on his Greek and Roman mythology series, what is he up to next? He is one of the most popular writers for middle school and young adults, and even now that I am on my 30s I am still reading his stories...

I may be a little late on sharing this news, but he will be kinda stepping off the mythology genre and focus with Sci-Fi ala Jules Verne-like stories intended for his usual readership... And he will do it first with Daughter of the Deep. I am not quite sure though if this is a series or a standalone series... Do any of you got an idea?

Check out the placeholder cover of Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan.

Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan


New York Times #1 best-selling author Rick Riordan pays homage to Jules Verne in his exciting modern take on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Ana Dakkar is a freshman at Harding-Pencroft Academy, a five-year high school that graduates the best marine scientists, naval warriors, navigators, and underwater explorers in the world. Ana's parents died while on a scientific expedition two years ago, and the only family's she's got left is her older brother, Dev, also a student at HP. Ana's freshman year culminates with the class's weekend trial at sea, the details of which have been kept secret. She only hopes she has what it'll take to succeed. All her worries are blown out of the water when, on the bus ride to the ship, Ana and her schoolmates witness a terrible tragedy that will change the trajectory of their lives.

But wait, there's more. The professor accompanying them informs Ana that their rival school, Land Institute, and Harding-Pencroft have been fighting a cold war for a hundred and fifty years. Now that cold war has been turned up to a full broil, and the freshman are in danger of becoming fish food. In a race against deadly enemies, Ana will make amazing friends and astounding discoveries about her heritage as she puts her leadership skills to the test for the first time.

Rick Riordan's trademark humor, fast-paced action, and wide cast of characters are on full display in this undersea adventure.

Daughter of the Deep by Rick Riordan will be released on October 5, 2021.
