Faculty Review: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Cover from the DragonLibrary Catalog

Dad is mad. And when your dad happens to be Zeus, well the punishment can be a bit different than just being sent to your room. The Greek god Apollo must now live as a mortal teenager as punishment for the gods' recent battle with Gaea. He must face off against unknown enemies as they try to wrest control from the gods of Olympus and save his children and friends from harm at the same time. And so begins Apollo's many trials and hardships to regain his immortality. I most definitely recommend reading this book. It is full of action and humor. It is fun to read as Apollo struggles with mortality and living with his children as well as the perils they face as demigods. It made me look forward to continuing to read about Apollo's further adventures and is a very good follow up to all the other Percy Jackson novels by Riordan.
