Waiting on Wednesday [#38] — The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.

What book am I eagerly anticipating at this moment? Why it just so happens to be…


The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle
by Rick Riordan

Releases May 3rd, 2016 from Disney-Hyperion



How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.

But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Bad haikus.

On a more serious note — do we really need another new series from Rick? We already have Magnus Chase going on, and this will now be the third series of Greek/Roman mythology. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore everything Rick writes, but this seems a little excessive.

Still… I’m featuring this on a Waiting on Wednesday — because I absolutely can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! I can’t wait for the returning characters we know and love, more Greek myths to explore, and more completely insane quests.

Are you looking forward to reading The Hidden Oracle?
What can’t you wait to read right now?

    1. You should definitely check out Rick Riordan! However, The Trials of Apollo will include many old characters from both Percy Jackson and The Heroes of Olympus series. You can definitely start with this new series, but you’ll definitely get so much more out of it having read the two other series. 😀


    1. I like it. 🙂 Nico was one of my favorite characters in Heroes of Olympus, and I’m thrilled that Rick’s got characters of all sexual preferences in his books. (I also died when Nico told Percy “you’re not my type”. That was the BEST. Percy was so confused. Hahaha.)
