Alright! Rick Riordan is back at it again!
How he is able to pump out so many books, I’ll never know. This makes the third series of books he’s currently working on, the others being the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series, as well as a series of crossover novellas where Percy and the Kane siblings meet. Of course, I’m not complaining! While Riordan books are geared more toward a Middle Grade audience, I’ve always loved the humor and wit that has become something of a staple for his work. When you crack open such a book, you’re in for a creative and wild adventure, full of laughs, but that doesn’t mean that there are more somber and series moments, too. His books are a good balance between fun and engaging.
The Trials of Apollo series seems to center around Apollo and how he was thrown out of the Olympian circle and sent to Earth as a mortal for his misdeeds in the two pervious series. To teach him a lesson, if you will. I’m definitely interested in seeing how Apollo will cope with his sudden humanity as well as how he plans to redeem himself to his parents and the other Gods/Goddesses. Whatever Riordan has up his sleeve, I can tell it will be good!
This book releases May 3rd, the same day as A Court of Mist and Fury and I’ve already preordered both! Now to just wait until they show up in my mailbox! Which books are you looking forward to?
