“The Dark Prophecy” by Rick Riordan is the 2nd book that tells the story of the god Apollo who has been turned into a mortal by his father Zeus.  Zeus blames Apollo for a war that happened before the first book “The Hidden Oracle.”

Apollo is heading to Indianapolis on his dragon Festus with his friends Leo and Calypso.   They crash land in Indianapolis to find that it has been taken over by Commodos a Roman emperor who made himself into a god.

After meeting one of the hunters of Artemis and finding their secret base, Apollo learned that Commodos wants to make himself king of Indianapolis so he can call it Commodosapolis.   He also wants to kill Apollo and his friend Meg at the naming ceremony but neither Apollo or Commodos can find Meg.

To find what happens next, grab yourself a copy of this book!

What I liked about the book is that it is an interesting story about Apollo dealing with his mortality.   He can have a hard time trying to stop one god, find a special chair, free prisoners, and help his friends while being mortal.

What I didn’t like about the book is Apollo’s son Trophonius. He becomes a dark oracle just by dying while being Apollo’s son.

I would recommend this book only after you read the first book in the series. If there was a star rating for this story I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.     

 I can’t wait to read the third book when it comes out!

    Great job Sean! The review was awesome, and plus I you explain little but enough, and not the whole story. And lastly, I don’t recall Apollo starting a war in the first book of The Hidden Oracle. I thought that he started a war in the last book of the Heroes of Olympus.?

    Great review, Sean! I know Rick Riordan is a great author, and so are you! You didn’t spoil the book for me (Thank You) and you also gave me information about what the book is like. Now I really want to read the book as well!
