'The Dark Prophecy' Is Rick Riordan's Second The Trials Of Apollo Book

The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle has just hit the shelves and I haven't even read it personally and we already have juicy news about the sequel... No, we don't have the official cover art yet, but we do have a release date and synopsis to satisfy your craving. Of course that is just about right since we don't really wanna overshadow the party celebration of the unveiling of the cover of Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor.

For now let us content ourselves with this placeholder cover, showcasing a green backdrop and the usual typeset... while reading the first book in the series which is available in the book stores near you.

The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan


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. 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.

The Trials of Apollo #2: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan will be available on May 2, 2017.
