Please read the first book in the series before delving into this one, otherwise, you will be very confused. I would recommend this book to middle grade/young adult readers who have enjoyed Rick Riordan’s other novel, mythology, fantasy or action/adventure books. It was really great to see Apollo’s character continue to develop throughout the book. As time passes, he learns what it means to be human and begins to understand mortality. As a god, he was always removed from a situation – sending worthy Demi-gods to do his bidding without a care for their safety or lives. As Lester, he develops relationships with other people and learns to truly care about their wellbeing. Although this series is called the Trials of Apollo, and Apollo himself would be quite insulted that I suggest he is not sufficiently impressive to carry this book – but there is not enough Percy Jackson. I am glad however, that there is a lot of Leo. He is hilarious and I am so happy to get to spend more time battling monsters and immortals with one of the Seven. The endings feel like they come out of no-where, which is exactly how I felt rereading the first book in this series. Although the end of the book’s plot follows the typical action-filled climax, conclusion of event and a short "how things have changed" final few pages – I will be reading, turn the last page and be confused when all I see are the terms in the glossary, rather than another chapter. It feels abrupt and I wish that there would be more to the end. The final pages feel like they’re the end of a chapter rather than a book. Check it out!

The Trials of Apollo Book Two The Dark Prophecy Hardcover – May 2, 2017 by Rick Riordan (Author) Review
Awesome. thanks -Read Reviews-
My son loves this author and this series, so it was a no brainer to pre-order it for a end of school year gift. Hardback books are the only way to go if your child is interested in building a physical home library. Clean, durable, sturdy and adds a classy look to the room when the shelves are full of them.
