The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo Book 1)

Rick Riordan

PAPERBACK

October 3, 2017

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

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.

Also included, a bonus short story: "Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo"

Editorial Reviews

"Riordan fans will find all of the key elements here: wisecracking narration, underdog kid turned hero (well, god turned underdog turned hero in this case), mythological core, and robust side characters who round out the field. This is familiar territory for Riordan, but the formula works so well, and Apollo is just so appealingly unpleasant, that there's little to fault in this adventure."

– BBulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"A clash of mythic intrigues and centuries of pop culture to thrill die-hard and new fans alike."

– Kirkus

"Riordan's many fans will be thrilled with this return to the world of Percy Jackson and friends. . . This latest has Riordan's signature wry narration, nonstop action, and mythology brought to life."

– School Library Journal
