Rick Riordan New Series & Competition Time!

We couldn’t be happier to be returning to Camp Halfblood with Rick Riordan!

What new dangers lurk behind every corner? What new characters will we absolutely love and fiercely hate? Will Percy Jackson make an appearance? There are so many questions we NEED answers too and we can’t wait to dive into this incredible new series to find them.

The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle Book One

The-Hidden-Oracle-162x225How 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.

  2. I love Rick because his writing has a way to sweep you away into a mystical world you wished exist and who doesn’t want Percy to be real? I heard so much about this book and can’t wait to read it!

  3. I love Rick Riordan because my 10 year old daughter has become engrossed in his world – nothing better to keep a child occupied in the school holidays! AND it gives her dad and I a chance to read our own books in peace. AND she now wants to know more and more about Greek mythology!

  4. I LOVE RICK’S WORK BECAUSE THERE IS A VAST ARRAY OF REPRESENTATION FROM ALL OPPRESSED GROUPS (PEOPLE OF COLOUR, THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY, CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH DYSLEXIA AND ADHD), BUT ALSO THE WAY HIS WORK APPEALS TO PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND AGES. HE SOMEHOW MANAGES TO KEEP US CAPTIVATED AND LONGING FOR MORE – WITH JUST ENOUGH HUMOUR WHICH ALLOWS US TO ESCAPE REALITY: ALSO, LETS NOT FORGET THE MYTHOLOGY.

    RICK’S WORK HAS THE ABILITY TO REEL ANYONE IN AND THAT IS THE REASON WHY I LOVE HIM AND ALL HIS NOVELS SO MUCH!!

  6. I love Rick Riordan and his latest work did not disappoint me. It is a tale of danger, adventure, friendship and an emotional journey that left me laughing, crying and wanting more.
    I admire Rick’s writing style; it is very casual so makes you feel as though you are actually talking to the character and he manages to inject humour, even during sad moments. I also like that his plots are not centred around romance; he manages to write convincing and compelling love stories without them dominating or detracting from the rest of the story, which I find really refreshing. Also, of course, I love the fact that his novels are based on mythology and how he manages to incorporate myth and legend so seamlessly into a modern day setting.
    Rick Riordan is one of my favourite authors of all time and I would recommend The Trials of Apollo to everyone, regardless of whether you have read his other books (although I highly recommend that you read them too!).

  7. Ricks writing style is amazing and entirely unique, not to mention the awesomeness of the plots in his stories. Getting my hands on a copy of his new book is exactly what I need! His books make me a happy reader!
