I've been a big fan of Rick Riordan's books about Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods, heroes and monsters for quite a while and obviously jumped at the chance of reading more. This series brings a twist to it - say hello to Romans! I won't say any more than that, because that's already in ever so slightly Spoiler Land (though it's so obvious right from the beginning). Anyway, all I'll really say about these are:
If you liked the previous books about Percy, this series is a must read! The writing style is great, the stories are captivating and the characters are mostly really sweet.
The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, #3) came out in 2012 (and I'm waiting to read it) and The House of Hades (Heroes of Olympus, #4) is due to be published in 2013. Furthermore a 5th untitled instalment is expected in 2014.
