about

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 sixteen-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. Somewhere in the American Midwest, he and his companions must find the most dangerous Oracle from ancient times: a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again--if it doesn't kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo's way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate, a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of son of Hephaestus Leo Valdez, the now-mortal sorceress Calypso, the bronze dragon Festus, and other unexpected allies--some familiar, some new--from the world of demigods. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride. . . .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A little disapointed I dont find Apollo appealing own his own. With the other charterers like Leo, Annabeth, Percy and others i think hes fine. But as soon as Meg was reintroduced i found the story and Apollo intolerable. i kept putting it down and had to force my self to pick it back up. this is the first time ive not enjoyed a Rick Riordan novel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic book Such a good book, continuing with the theme of LGBT characters but with a main character this time. Apollo is unapologically bisexual with a lot of the conflict in the book focused on how much he loved someone. An amazing thing for kids lit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Rick Riordan continues to be my favourite author.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars for Apollo and the ending...because I think the next book will be better if it features some returning characters. I chuckled here and there but mostly this book sadly suffered second-book syndrome. Not much happened and looks like there will be 5 books to this series. Hopefully I'll enjoy the next book more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from second book syndrome the humour that i thoroughly enjoyed in the first book wasn't as present in the second book of the series, but it was still an immensely enjoyable read. it was a bit darker in places, which i love considering the fact that this book IS about a greek god, and i definitely don't regret reading it. i can't wait for the other book(s) of this series, and will no doubt get them as soon as they come out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing Was not at all dissapointed in this second installement. Rick Riordan makes it so easy to enjoy history and knows how to keep you on your toes. You meet lots of new in interesting caracters as well and for those of you who have learned about this in school you get to see a hole other side to these heros and gods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring Love the characters, the story line. Great mystery, right to the end. Love that it's "local" too, feels like you could drive up any given weekend (wish we could!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be as good as the last I love Rick Riordan's writing, and all of his books. The Hidden Oracle was a great first book in this series, and this one should be as good as the last, if not better. Should appeal to Percy Jackson fans, being one myself. Another adventure filled with twists and turns, smart wit, and hilarious jokes. I love it.
