The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) Reviews
I remember when I started this book last year without reading the previous ten books, one of my best friends here told me I have to read previous books. I was sad because I had read, I think, 5 chapters or so and I was quite enjoying it. And reading ten whole books seemed a huge mess to me. Now I understood that my friend was right.
**Thank you, if you are reading this review. :)**

Entre las mil y una sagas de Riordan, creo que Las pruebas de Apolo recupera la originalidad con un narrador distinto. Es decir, Riordan siempre escribe con humor e ironía, pero Apolo destaca entre la sucesión de protagonistas semidioses ingeniosos y carismáticos. El dios más vanidoso convertido en mortal a las órdenes de una sin techo de trece años e ssin duda un personaje que da tanto juego como promete.
Es un poco introductoria (la trama "grande" de la saga" no empieza a aparecer hasta la mit ...more
We have more details on THE HIDDEN ORACLE! (http://www.hypable.com/rick-riordan-p...) I think I might just die right here. APOLLO. APOLLO!!! Only my favourite god from the PJO world. I am so ready for bad haikus and humour. The fact that this will have all (most? some? of) the old characters definitely makes me feel a little less nervous about this book so yes, PLEASE BE FABULOUS. I AM READY TO ACCEPT YOU INTO MY ARMS.

Right, so I've just finished my final exams, and will be graduating uni in a few weeks. My degree is combined history and ancient history, and since I was young, tales about mythology have intrigued me, either reading the originals, or adaptations/retellings. Rick Riordan quickly became one of my favourite authors about five years ago, when I discovered the Percy Jackson series, and since then I've loved anything by him.
When I first heard that Riordan would be returning to the world of Percy Jac ...more
After the not-so-successful Magnus Chase book, I know that some people are reluctant to go back to RR's world, but I'm here to tell ya.The Hidden Oracle is so much better than The Sword of Summer.
Basically,this is the summary of The Hidden Oracle
This book is different to the usual RR book and its formulatic story. Uncle Rick II is kinda famous for writing a book/series with demigods as main characters and though I love Percy and the gang, the characters and the plot are getting predictable. I'm ...more
NOOOOOO OMG!!! That final chapter killed me and brought me to life at the same time!!! Apollo's team in this trials will be THE DREAM TEAM! I'm so excited to read the adventures of these three!!!
Also, everytime Percy appeared I couldn't stop SMILING. OH! And Apollo was FANTASTIC! He made me laugh out loud every two paragraphs! Humor on point! I really loved this book.
UPDATE 05/10/2015: WE HAVE THE SYNOPSIS AND THIS IS EVEN BETTER THAN I EXPECTED! I've always loved the way uncle Rick writes A ...more
Ah it was so nice to be back in Rick's universe!
While I thought this was very fun and entertaining, and I LOVED getting to read about what everyone was up to, this was probably my least favorite of his so far. It was still great, I'm just saying in comparison to The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and the Heroes of Olympus series. I also liked Magnus Chase a little more. I think the biggest reason was Apollo. Don't get me wrong, he was ridiculous and made me laugh, but he just couldn't li ...more
Zeus needed someone to blame, so of course he’d picked the handsomest, most talented, most popular god in the pantheon: me.
This might be my favourite Riordan book.
I was actually disappointed with his last one - The Sword of Summer - and I began to question in my review if it was finally time for Mr. R. to take a step back from these books about Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods. The conflicts were similar and the teen "voices" had begun to blend into one. Magnus Chase could just as easily have b ...more
