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....


What the Critics Say

"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)

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!
