Best Teen Summer Read – The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy


The one thing that I love to do is read. With school ending within just a few short weeks, I have been busy planning my must-have summer reading calendar. One book that I couldn’t wait to read this summer is The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy. Imagine my surprise when I received a box on Friday that had a copy of the book I have been dying to read – I dropped everything and read the book within a couple of hours. Who doesn’t drop everything to get their hands on the newest Rick Riordan book? The man is a genius of an author who immerses his readers into another realm.

The Trials of Apollo is one of my favorite book series by far! The book is complete with puns, backstabbing, poetry and so much more! The series takes place in modern day and takes you through the hardships of Apollo after the giant war from the Heroes of Olympus Series, and Zeus stripped his godly powers and struck him from Olympus.

Now he has to restore the all of the Oracles from the grasp of the Triumvirate, an organization of three powerful individuals who are said to be the three worst Roman Emperors in history. Now Apollo is working to free the Oracles with a ton of old and new characters from the Percy Jackson Series.

I read the book within a couple of hours, and I know that it will add to my collection of Rick Riordan series that I’ve read so many times that the binding has broken on the books, and they are held together with duck tape. It was by far my favorite summer read, and summer is just starting!!
