When we first started our journey with Rick Riordan’s books I didn’t know how my kids would do. We started our two oldest on the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books prior to the summer as a reading challenge and they quickly fell in love with the books. Plus they started to learn about things that were completely new to them like the Greek Gods, demigods, titans, monsters and mythology. Until then they had been reading mostly kids’ books about underpants, babysitting, and life according to a kid.

It was this jump into tween literature that sparked a fire under them and finally got them both reading more. I loved to see my non-reader finally want to read and my big reader voraciously tackled the series like a champ.

Author Rick Riordan has built an omniverse with all of his books being interconnected and we’ve moved on the new release from the Trials of Apollo series, The Tyrant’s Tomb.

This series covers the misadventures of Apollo after he was cast down from Olympus by his father Zeus after he angers him. Saying goodbye to his superpowers he is now a mortal teen boy named Lester Papadopoulos that lands in New York City and works towards surviving long enough to have his dad forgive him.

Newly released book four takes Apollo to San Francisco Bay’s Camp Jupiter where he works his way to restoring the five ancient oracles and finally getting back his godly powers. Once there he encounters the Roman demigods who are already preparing for the last fight against the Triumvirate of Roman emperors.

As he lands a hand to Hazel, Reyna, Frank, Tyson, Ella, and lots of other old friends they discover that everything they need to survive lies in the forgotten tomb of a tyrant Roman ruler. You need to get the book to see whether Apollo manages to save the day and be the hero everyone needs.

    What a shame this is just for the US. My granddaughter loves Rich Riordas books. I gave her the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series that I’d read and she loved them – I did too 🙂
