Publisher's Summary

Zeus has punished his son Apollo - god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more - by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered 16-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers?

After experiencing a series of dangerous - and, frankly, humiliating - trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Fortunately, what he lacks in godly graces he's gaining in new friendships - with heroes who will be very familiar to fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus series. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride....

Critic Reviews

"Narrator Robbie Daymond is perfectly tuned in as events take a darker turn in this sequel to The Hidden Oracle.... There's plenty of adventure and humor here, and listeners will finish this installment already eager for the next one." ( AudioFile)

Rick Riordan, SUPER ALLY!

I've been in love with the world Rick Riordan created, starting with Percy Jackson and the Olympians, for many years, and it just keeps getting better and more rich. Riordan has found a way and a world to teach us about mythology that also teaches us about ourselves, which was always the purpose of mythology anyway, right?

Both the Trials of Apollo series and Magnus Chase have also introduced characters who are LGBT in such an authentic way, and these characters are true heroes that kids can look up to, flaws and all. I wish these kinds of characters had existed in books when I was a young gay kid, escaping to Narnia, Middle Earth, and Hogwarts. THANK YOU RICK RIORDAN! For me, you win ALLY OF THE YEAR :)

good story but.....

I didn't like how Apollo reverts from all he gained in first book, I felt like he lost all he gained personally. he was finally becoming less self centered and thinking about others more. in this one he totally reverts or may be even worse. maybe I noticed it because I listened to them back to back.

Slow moving, but gets better😃

The beginning of this book, dragged on and on,
It's does finally start to get interesting 1/2 way through. This installment introduces a lot of unknown characters, which after reading the first book, makes it hard to create an emotional connect to this new story. Yes Leo and Cal are in the story, but they have worst chemistry of any Percy Jackson universe couple. We just saw Will and Nico, in the last book, and they had amazing chemistry, so Leo and Cal's relationship is hard sell.

Apollo continues to grow on his soul searching quest of humanity and the story chugs along slowly, but eventually it gets exciting. You just have to stay engaged until you find the exciting part lol!

I'm still eagerly awaiting the next installment!

Best yet!

Perfect narrator for my favorite character, Apollo. In this book, Apollo must face even more ghosts from his past--some metaphorical and some very literal--as he works to free one more Oracle from the clutches of the Triumvirate. Perfectly paced, loaded with emotion, meaning, and glimpses into both legend and history, this is Riordan's best yet.
