Waiting on Wednesday: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan!

Second book of The Trial of Apollo series!

Publication date: May 2nd, 2017
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

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 do anything about them without his powers?

After experiencing a series of dangerous—and frankly, humiliating—trials at Camp Half-Blood, Apollo 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. . . .

Rick has many fans and we have read some of his Percy Jackson books which, in my opinion, we're okay but too middle school for me. I haven't read his other continuation series though but people say they are more mature so I'll probably read them at some point. For now, which of his series do you like more? What do you like about his writing/books? Should I mention the movies? Ahem... better not.

Are you excited about The Dark Prophecy?
