Rick Riordan Fans: Win a God of Music Prize Pack to Celebrate ‘The Dark Prophecy’!


Rick Riordan has proven himself to be a master of turning fascinating mythology into fun (and addictive) novels. If you’re only familiar with his fantastic Percy Jackson series, it’s time to check out The Trials of Apollo. This series follows (you guessed it) Apollo, who has been cast down to earth by his father Zeus in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. Talk about a downgrade. The only way Apollo can reclaim his place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark – without his powers.

Sounds pretty cool, right? In celebration of the release of the second book in the series, The Dark Prophecy, we’re giving you the chance to win an awesome God of Music prize pack. Thanks to Disney-Hyperion for sending us a copy of the book and providing this prize!

About The Dark Prophecy

Zeus has punished his son Apollo–god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more–by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers?

After experiencing a series of dangerous—and frankly, humiliating—trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Somewhere in the American Midwest, he and his companions must find the most dangerous Oracle from ancient times: a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again—if it doesn’t kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo’s way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate, a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of son of Hephaestus Leo Valdez, the now-mortal sorceress Calypso, the bronze dragon Festus, and other unexpected allies—some familiar, some new—from the world of demigods. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride….
