Giveaway: Trials of Apollo

ABOUT THE BOOK
New series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rick Riordan.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.

But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Rick collaborated with illustrator John Rocco on two best-selling collections of Greek myths for the whole family: Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods and Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes. The first book in his Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgardtrilogy based on Norse mythology, The Sword of Summer, also debuted at #1 on the New York Times list.

Although I feel the most affinity for Athena, I'd actually love to be Artemis! She's a little freer and I've always admired her and the ladies that follow her.

I kind of like the idea of Hestia, goddess of hearth and home.

Artemis!

I would definitely go with Hestia especially based on how she was represented in the Percy Jackson books
