    Zeus needed someone to blame so of course he’d picked the handsomest most talented most popular god in the pantheon me This might be my favourite Riordan book I was actually disappointed with his last one The Sword of Summer and I began to uestion in my review if it was finally time for Mr R to take a step back from these books about Greek Roman and Egyptian gods The conflicts were similar and the teen voices had begun to blend into one Magnus Chase could just as easily have been Percy JacksonBUT then RR had to throw Apollo into the mix Apollo stands out because he is not a teenage boy Well technically he is in this book But he's actually an age old immortal who has been cast out of Olympus by Zeus and turned into a regular human teenager His voice however not to mention his snark and humour are that of a selfish narcissistic hilarious assholeTruly this book is so refreshing Apollo doesn't even pretend he's a do gooder; in fact it's clear from the beginning that he's out for himself and views humans as meat sacks Imagine his horror when he discovers that not only is he human but he also has acne and flab Is anything sadder than the sound of a god hitting a pile of garbage bags? Of course there's a whole lot of godly drama going on too You don't get to be an old god like Apollo without making a LOT of enemies But this mostly stood out to me as being the funniest book Riordan has written and that's really saying something given that all his books are defined by his trademark snarky humour Pure entertainmentApollo is the Gilderoy Lockhart of this world and it is hilarious There's a nice bit of schadenfreude to be had when this self obsessed god finally gets what he deserves and has to rely on Percy Jackson for help And yet there is something undeniably lovable about him too On that note many familiar characters come in and out of this book You don't have to have read the other books to understand and enjoy this one but it does contain spoilers for the main series and the characters This for me stood out amid a sea of similar stories and characters I'm still not 100% sure I would want to read any books that focus on teenage demigods we've kind of been there and done that in my opinion but I will definitely see Apollo's story through to the end It warmed my heart that my children had the right priorities their skills their images their views on YouTube Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Store

    NOOOOOO OMG That final chapter killed me and brought me to life at the same time Apollo's team in this trials will be THE DREAM TEAM I'm so excited to read the adventures of these three Also everytime Percy appeared I couldn't stop SMILING OH And Apollo was FANTASTIC He made me laugh out loud every two paragraphs Humor on point I really loved this bookUPDATE 05102015 WE HAVE THE SYNOPSIS AND THIS IS EVEN BETTER THAN I EXPECTED I've always loved the way uncle Rick writes Apollo and all the gods tbh This is gonna be so epic and hilarious And I can't wait to see of my babies at Camp Half Blood Nico Will Jason Piper Leo And hopefully also Percy and Annabeth and Hazel and Frank YES PLEASEEEEEEI'M FANGIRLING SO MUCHFirst impressions September 2015 OMFG OMFG OMFGEDIT I don't understand why people complain so much about Rick sticking to this universe and being like Cassandra Clare SO WHAT IF THE AUTHORS LOVE THE UNIVERSE THEY CREATED? LET THEM BE They are the authors and they can write whatever they want If you don't want to read of their amazing books then you don't have to do it There are plenty of people including me who are VERY EXCITED for this new series and for all of Cassie's new Shadowhunter Chronicles too

    Is anything sadder than the sound of a god hitting a pile of garbage bags? Or to paraphrase is there anything sadder than your favorite author becoming a sellout?It's blatantly obvious Riordan isn't even trying any He knows he can put out a steaming heap of crap and Percy fangirls and Solangelo diehards would still be clawing over each other for a copy sending This Hidden Disappointment to the top of the NYT bestseller's listI don't understand Solangelo—Will and Nico They never had chemistry They were slapped together in The Blood of Olympus for the sole purpose of Nico getting over Percy Yeah it was sweet then and I was drunk on the magic of the finale but their relationship is never fleshed out They're presented as this oh so cute couple and we're automatically supposed to be on board because they're gayTo that I sayWe ship Percy and Annabeth because they have history They went to hell and back for each other Their relationship weathered problems like Luke and Rachel They work so incredibly well as a couple and a team as The House of Hades demonstratedWhat do Will and Nico have? A few conversations behind the Hades cabin I expected their relationship to develop in The Hidden Oracle not a simple PSA about LGBTIA rights from Riordan through Apollo I'm glad we're seeing diversity in campers with Chinese and Brazilian demigods but the way they're presented feels like a big neon sign flashing Look how inclusive I'm beingSolangelo isn't the problem I can live with them and the obvious fanservice in the form of view spoilerLeo hide spoiler

    35 stars Yesterday he was the mighty and melodious Apollo son of Zeus Today he is Lester Papadopoulos a mere ungifted mortalThere’s only one thing for him to do now join the demigods at Camp Half BloodWhat makes The Hidden Oracle incredibly interesting is Apollo himself Yes he is one narcissistic personage with high standards and a peculiar appreciation for poetryAnd yes he is tremendously flawed there is no denying that But funnily enough that’s what makes him so likeablePlus there is nothing endearing than seeing a god care for his half human offspring Apollo is very protective when it comes to his children and friendsNo one can say that he only cares about himselfAs usual with any Rick Riordan book The Hidden Oracle is filled with adventure action danger mythology monstrous creatures originality friendship and fun momentsMy ualm? It acts too much as the spin off to The Heroes of Olympus which is a series I could not bring myself to finishIt can be read without having any knowledge of the aforementioned series but there are countless of mentions of characters from it—many are actually part of this new series as wellMy suggestion is that you at least read the first book in The Heroes of Olympus if you have the time for the author does not present the old characters in grand detail; he basically assumes we are already acuainted with themThe Hidden Oracle is a highly entertaining new series containing a large set of characters and many adventures It plunges the god of music prophecy and healing Apollo into a dozen cut throat situationsI read it in a single day and look extremely forward to the seuelBlog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

    “Things can turn out differently Apollo That's the nice thing about being human We only have one life but we can choose what kind of story it's going to be” Dammit Rick Riordan This book was actually really good WHAT THE HELL When I first heard about Trials of Apollo I had very mixed feelings On one hand I felt like “Jeez Rick please don’t turn into a huge sell out” On the other hand I was like “I GET TO BE REUNITED WITH ALL THE PJOHOO CHARACTERS YET AGAIN YESSSS”Honestly the premise––which is that Apollo turns mortal a punishment from Zeus and has to attend Camp Half Blood––sounds like someone’s fanfiction idea or something So I was a little like “Oh boy how is this going to last for an entire book––an entire five book series for that matter?”I guess I can only speak for the first book so far but somehow it works I was honestly just going to read this book for kicks––and to find out what had happened to certain PJOHoO characters But I ended up being way invested in the story than I thought I would be Not only is this book good but I seriously think it’s the best thing Rick Riordan has written in the past few years I liked this book than Magnus Chase and honestly I think I liked it than Blood of Olympus as well What I liked Apollo’s narration Oh my goodness it’s hilarious I always loved Apollo in the PJO books and it’s amazing to get to read a whole story in his perspective Somehow he manages to be super conceited but also so lovable at the same time? And I think it’s because we all know he actually has a heart hidden underneath all that vanity But also it’s hilarious to see him trying to adjust to being mortal Oh and I loved that all the chapter titles were haikus It’s not a journey story I think this may be the first ever Rick Riordan book where the characters don’t go on an epic uest Not that I don’t mind a good journey story but I was relieved this book didn’t follow the typical Riordan formulaThis is where The Kane Chronicles and Magnus Chase and even Heroes of Olympus fell a little flat for me––I liked them but it was starting to feel like the same story over and over again “the characters go on some long journey they meet a bunch of uirky mythological beings along the way” The Hidden Oracle on the other hand mostly just takes place at Camp Half Blood Yet there is still tension mystery and conflict without the characters having to wander all over the country Towards the end I got the sense it was setting up for a journey story in the next books but I at least appreciate that Rick stepped out of his comfort zone for this first installment Percy Jackson gets a freakin’ break I was excited Percy was in this book of course and I found it hilarious that Meg immediately has a crush on him––oh my god everyone is in love with this kid But I also liked that Percy didn’t stick around for the whole book as much as I love him He’s just like “Look I’ll give you a ride to camp and I’ll check in this weekend––but I also have a life and stuff” I’m sure he’ll get dragged into shenanigans in this series but I’m also glad to see him trying to live a normal life––trying to catch up on schoolwork thinking about college etc #LetPercyLive2k16 The humor Rick really brought it with the humor in this one––I haven’t laughed so much at a book in a long time Then the glow become brighter a holographic golden sickle with a few sheaves of wheat rotating just above Meg McCaffreyA boy in the crowd gasped “She's a communist”A girl who'd been sitting at Cabin Four's table gave him a disgusted sneer “No Damien that's my mom's symbol” Just oh my gosh dies of laughter MEG I love Meg I love that she wears glasses and eats a lot and has a little bit of hair above her upper lip I love that she’s a daughter of Demeter and that being a child of the harvestagriculture goddess is actually portrayed as being pretty badass I love how endearingly odd she is I love that she gets to be an important part of the story when most of the time a similar character would have to take the sidelinesI also love the friendship between Meg and Apollo He starts off thinking she’s a total nuisance and then ends up really caring about her in the end and just mY HEART THE SOLANGELO OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I was grinning my head off about these two throughout the whole book I am ridiculously happy to finally see a canon gay couple in one of Riordan’s books and it was worth the wait These two are PERFECT OMFG Will put his hand on Nico's shoulder Nico we need to have another talk about your people skillsHey I'm just stating the obvious If this is Apollo and he dies we're all in troubleWill turned to me I apologize for my boyfriendNico rolled his eyes Could you not―Would you prefer special guy? Will asked Or significant other?Significant annoyance in your case Nico grumbled BOYFRIEND HE SAID BOYFRIEND Nico I said at last shouldn't you be sitting at the Hades table?He shrugged Technically yes But if I sit alone at my table strange things happen Cracks open in the floor Zombies crawl out and start roaming around It's a mood disorder I can't control it That's what I told Chiron And is it true? I askedNico smiled thinly I have a note from my doctorWill raised his hand I'm his doctor CAN YOU HEAR ME SCREAMING THESE TWO DORKS I CAN’T HANDLE ITAnd you know what I also love? I love that Apollo is so open about being bisexual Honestly this just means so so much to me The first time Apollo mentioned that his two true loves had been Daphne and Hyacinthus my jaw kinda dropped because I really hadn’t expected Rick Riordan to acknowledge thatAnd I was already happy with that one little nod to Apollo’s sexuality but it doesn’t end there Apollo clearly states at one point that he has been in relationships with numerous men and women and throughout the story he notes the attractiveness of both male and female characters I had expected that at most Rick Riordan would hint that Apollo was bisexual so I was just overjoyed that he didn’t try to hide it at all In all seriousness this representation means a lot to me There were no LGBTIA characters in the books I read as a kid None I don’t think I saw ueer characters in a book until I was like 15 So to see a book like this where there is both a canon gay couple and a bisexual protagonist and to know that gay and bisexual kids could grow up reading this bookseries and actually feel represented that gives me so many feelings I wish I’d had this kind of representation when I was a kid What didn’t work for me As I said I did appreciate that this book took things a little slowly than most of Riordan’s books However I did wish there’d been a little bit going on The whole book felt like it was building up to something bigger––which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it also made it feel a little incomplete The references to modern technology Look I know Rick Riordan wants to appeal to the cool kids and all but at times I found this a little cringe worthy All the references to things like Skype YouTube Snapchat etc tend to feel forced and unnecessary to me––not only that but they’re probably going to seem silly and obsolete to any kid who reads this book in ten years There was a major plot twist I was a little iffy about view spoilerI’m talking about the whole thing where Meg sort of betrays Apollo It was a tad clichéd and I was slightly disappointed that Riordan took it that route I just feel like the same plotline has been done a million times However I did like that it added depth to her character It’s pretty messed up how much Nero has manipulated and emotionally abused her hide spoiler

    This was tons of fun The perspective of a god is great to read from especially since Apollo made for a hilarious narrator While I didn't enjoy it uite as much as his other books it was still great

    1 5 stars A Tired Spin on the Same Old Formula I’ll be perfectly blunt you don’t look to Riordan for originality We all know this to be true Hell the very first Percy Jackson books rode the Harry Potter ripoff wave to C List stardom and even then he just rewrote ancient myths in a modern format Now he’s going back to his roots and just ripping off his previous stories under that hypnotic guise of nostalgia We return to Camp Half Blood Prince and meet some familiar characters like Percy and Nico only to go on the same old adventuresThe main difference here is that Apollo has been stripped of his godly powers and must face a road to redemption instead of just being a godly offspring This theme again is heavily borrowed from pre existing mythologyPercy’s return is a mirror of Annabeth’s in the Sword of Summer which leads me to believe that since these two series are released near each other and seem to have the same timeline that they will at some point at least partially intersect But Percy’s reappearance being very much like his girlfriend’s before him again shows that Riordan is running out of fresh material and reusing his own plotsCringey Dad Jokes Mythology EditionSMH Rick writes Apollo in his own voice desperately unhip yet trying way too effing hard to be cool And completely oblivious to this fact as a writer His references are outdated and will go over the heads of the target Middle Grade audience They won’t get the mess that was the 2007 Britney Spears VMA performance unless they care enough to google it—because they either weren’t born at the time or were watching cartoons instead And this is something that is mentioned on page one yet the whole book is littered with these gems^This is also the basis of Riordan’s books The gods got bizay with mortals So it comes pun intended as no surprise that Apollo has had many lovers both female and male—a fact that Riordan seems to hammer yep still punnin’ home at every possible chance to prove how hip both he and Apollo are with teh ghey stuff when he finds out his son has a boyfriend This is peak Riordan dad joke cringe right here because he continually beats heh punz this long dead horse way past trying to make any point that he’s so kewl with itIf that wasn’t bad enough each chapter heading has increasingly lame haikus over them I feel like this whole book could have used a good editor to show Riordan that so much of it is just cringey or trite; but according to a source with the same publisher they just don’t care about uality and expect the author to do it all I guess Riordan in his utmost dweebiness thought this was a good effort then again he also chose this as his book jacket pictureNo seriously This guy thought ^this^ was a flattering pic YikesThe villain here is laughably melodramatic and not in a good way It’s like watching Bailee Madison in basically any of her roles just chewing the scenery and not believable at all Honestly how the hell does that annoying actress get roles? She has no talent whatsoever
