Book News: Rick Riordan's Trials of Apollo

  • Release Date: May 3, 2016
  • Series: 5 Books
"The series will be about how Apollo has been turned into a human because Zeus is angry with him. He becomes a 16-year-old mortal boy with absolutely no powers. He’ll wind up in New York City, landing in a dumpster, no less.
He’s got lots of enemies and only a few friends — friends who spend their time at Camp Half-Blood. He’ll need their help to survive the mortal world and, hopefully, regain his godly powers.
And while it’s certainly extremely exciting to know we’ll be going back to the Greek gods, it’s even more exciting that we’ll be meeting Percy and the whole gang again. In fact, we will find out what happens after The Blood of Olympus, seeing everyone at one point or another." -Hypable

My Opinion:
An entire Greek mythology series from a gods point of view? YES. I'm super interested in this series not because of Rick Riordan's amazing writing, or incredibly likable characters, but because this might be the an interesting peek into the thought processes of the seemingly apathetic lords of Percy Jackson's world.

Then there's the fact that we're getting to see the old gang again, no doubt helping save Apollo from all his spiteful (and now comparatively more powerful) enemies.
