The Hidden Oracle

The Hidden Oracle

If you are interested in Greek and/or Roman mythology, I would really recommend ‘‘The Hidden Oracle’’ which is the first book of the series, ‘‘The Trials of Apollo’’ which is the third continued series by Rick Riordan, who wrote ‘‘Percy Jackson’’ and ‘‘The Heroes of Olympus’’

‘‘The Hidden Oracle’’ is about the used-to-be god, Apollo who had been punished by Zeus after the fifth book of the series, ‘‘The Heroes of Olympus.” In the fifth book, ‘‘ The Blood of Olympus’’ Apollo encouraged Octavian to follow his dangerous path, and he revealed a prophecy that may destroy the gods. Now as punishment, Zeus made Apollo lose his memory, take the form of a mortal named Lester Papadopoulos and be in danger from Greek monsters.

I really enjoyed this book and most parts really caught my attention. Some parts are funny but some parts were slow and dragging. I would recommend this book to 9 -16 year olds.
