Yes, you have read that title right. Rick Riordan is writing a new series set in the world of Percy Jackson! This new book series will focus on the Greek God Apollo. (D’uh!)
So far, all we know is that Apollo gets on Zeus’ bad side and sends him to the mortal world as a 16-year old boy. As a god with many enemies, he has to turn to his few friends at Camp Half-Blood. We’ll get a chance to see how the lives of our favorite demigods are after the events of Blood of Olympus. And the whole plot will revolve on Apollo trying to regain his godly powers and position.
This news comes off the release of his other new series Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, with book one: The Sword of Summer.
The Trials of Apollo Book 1: The Hidden Oracle is slated for release on May 3, 2016. While Magnus Chase Book 2: The Hammer of Thor, is set for October 4, 2016.
A preview of The Hidden Oracle will be available when Riordan’s Demigods & Magicians is released on April 5, 2016.
