Here at PopWrapped, we love Rick Riordan. Like, a lot. We were honored to be a part of the Percy Pack campaign last year, celebrating a decade of fantastic adventures with the demi-god and his eccentric friends.
It is, therefore, my distinct pleasure to offer our readers and loyal Riordan fans a chance to get a special edition of the author's newest novel, The Hidden Oracle, book one in the epic new series, The Trials of Apollo.
The excerpt below is sure to pique your interest:
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, 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 favor.
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.
If, for some inexplicable reason, you still need to be convinced on how amazing this book and series is going to be, these book trailers should do the trick.
Looks incredible, right? No one melds comedy and earth-shattering despair better than Rick Riordan. He masterfully weaves intricate webs of humor with every moment of desolation, creating riveting characters and shocking twists that both infuriate and excite.
Knowing that this book awaits me in my library, begging to be read (and will be, immediately after I finish the series I'm currently enraptured by), brings me the joy that only an awaiting book can. I look so forward to reacquainting myself with Percy Jackson and company, as well as meeting some new friends.
