Today we are delighted to work with Disney-Hyperion on a brand new book set in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians world–and offer up a sweet giveaway, to boot.
The Hidden Oracle is the first novel in the Trials of the Apollo series–a new series set in the Percy Jackson world, following the diety Apolloy (who has sadly since been confined to a mortal teenager’s body–without recourse or real magical skill).
About the Book:
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.
There are five retail-specific editions of The Hidden Oracle, that all hit shelves on May 3rd. Each edition includes a unique insert that you can get exclusively from that retailer. Collect them all below!
