Publisher's Summary

The fifth and final installment of the number one New York Times best-selling Trials of Apollo series has Lester and Meg returning to where it all began: Camp Half-Blood.

At last, the breathtaking, action-packed finale of the number one best-selling Trials of Apollo series is here! Will the Greek god Apollo, cast down to earth in the pathetic moral form of a teenager named Lester Papadopoulos, finally regain his place on Mount Olympus? 

Lester's demigod friends at Camp Jupiter just helped him survive attacks from bloodthirsty ghouls, an evil Roman king and his army of the undead, and the lethal emperors Caligula and Commodus. Now the former god and his demigod master Meg must follow a prophecy uncovered by Ella the harpy. Lester's final challenge will be at the Tower of Nero, back in New York.

Will Meg have a last showdown with her father? Will this helpless form of Apollo have to face his arch nemesis, Python? Who will be on hand at Camp Half-Blood to assist? These questions and more will be answered in this book that all demigods are eagerly awaiting.

Not my favorite book in the series

Seemed to be a lot of fighting in this story, even more violence than usual. The villains, Nero and Python are disturbing to listen to. Unlike other books in this series, and other Riordan books, the dark elements were not as well balanced by new and growing relationships. I found myself laughing less.

I loved this 5th audio book!

The 5th book is amazing, but it was too short still I loved from the beginning to the end.

Absolutely excellent ending for the CHBC

I don’t know what to say. At 22 years old, and 14 of those years being an avid and bear obsessive fan of Rick Riordan’s works, I am at a loss to explain the absolute hailstorm of emotions I’m having right now, at the end of the Camp Half-Blood Chronicles. All I can say with out spoilers is just wow. I am sitting in my bed, crying as I write this. Thank you Rick for being a man with such amazing stories. Not many authors can say that their books will follow their readers through childhood to adolescence, to adulthood. But in my case I can say that these characters have truly been the best parts of my life. It’s like watching a sibling grow up before your eyes and then move away to college. Rick, thank you for your stories. They will forever be a part of my life, and always in my heart. Thank you.

A full original

Rick Riordan does it again. A fully entertaining book. The readers voice is as pleasant as ever. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy and adventure. Apollo fights Nero and cuts his faucets, but will he be able to defeat Python? That is for YOU to find out. I am again thrilled by Riordan's fantasies.

could be a little longer

I enjoyed the story but it ended way too soon. I feel it could had more depth. But I'm just an old man and this is a book for kids.

Another great story

Another great story from Uncle Rick. This is said to be the final book, yet he leaves a cliffhanger ending of sorts. Love that we see more of some lesser but favorite characters. Also looks like he took popular head canons from his fan base and made them canon, which was totally awesome!

Python is the true enemy

Rick Riordan’s message of Python’s wickedness reveals his true love for object oriented programming languages. Perfect.
