The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo Book 2) Reviews
I wanted to love this book. I've been reading all of Riordan's mythology series' since the beginning with Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief but this one fell flat to me. Riordan for whatever reason is officially in a slump of epic proportions, arguably dating back to the first Trials of Apollo book. The heart and humor which defined Percy Jackson, the Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus, and at least the first tome of Magnus Chase. There was a little bit of humor, but it was not the humor we typically get from Riordan. The jokes were simple and lacked the cleverness that defines Riordan's typical work. I will try to pick out some strengths, then address the most glaring weaknesses and end with a few more strengths.
Rick Riordan is now 12 books in his giant series that started with The Lightning Thief and he is not slowing down. The Dark Prophecy picks up 6 weeks after the conclusion of The Hidden Oracle and we start off with action right from the get go. The one thing I love about Rick Riordan's books is that you are never bored. If there isn't any action going on your laughing your head off, if your not laughing your reading some gripping action sequences. It is one entertaining book from start to finish. I am enjoying Apollo so much as the MC, do I miss Percy (of course) but Apollo just has this freshness about him even though he is 1000+ years old. It was great to see Leo and Calypso again after the ending of The Blood of Olympus. Heck it was even more great to see Thalia again (I loved Thalia!!). The Riordan is keeping the story fresh but finding ways to bring all his other well loved characters back into the flow is just simply amazing and I for one cannot wait to continue on this journey and see how it all comes to an end!!
Anything coming from Rick Riordon is amazing. Yes, I am a 43 yr old mom, and I have read every single Rick Riordon series. I love the humor and action. It will not dissapoint!
Love love his books as always great book
For some resson, I got the large print instead of the regular print edtion I ordered.
Once again Riordan does a wonderful job of blending the old with the new. This story is a superb addition to the line of new mythology he weaves with every book or series. Hopefully he never stops. In the next book let's hope we meet old friends again and are introduced to new as the epic continues.
LOVE the Trials of Apollo Book Series! I am such a huge fan of the Percy Jackson book series and was thrilled that Rick Riordan created a specific series of stories featuring one of my favorite characters Apollo! This was such a fun read and as always you can expect to be entertained and educated simultaneously! I really love that about Rick Riordan's books! It's no wonder why they are enjoyed by young audiences as well as those who are just a wee bit older (I'm 52) alike! I'm so looking forward to the release of the third book in the Trials of Apollo series!
