Publisher's Summary

In his penultimate adventure, a devastated but determined Apollo travels to Camp Jupiter, where he must learn what it is to be a hero, or die trying.

It's not easy being Apollo, especially when you've been turned into a human and banished from Olympus. On his path to restoring five ancient oracles and reclaiming his godly powers, Apollo (a.k.a. Lester Papadopoulos) has faced both triumphs and tragedies. Now, his journey takes him to Camp Jupiter in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Roman demigods are preparing for a desperate last stand against the evil Triumvirate of Roman emperors. Hazel, Reyna, Frank, Tyson, Ella, and many other old friends will need Apollo's aid to survive the onslaught. Unfortunately, the answer to their salvation lies in the forgotten tomb of a Roman ruler...someone even worse than the emperors Apollo has already faced.

great experience

Robbie Daymond is, as always, the PERFECT Lester/Apollo. I found myself laughing a lot, too.

Uncle Rick Strikes Again

If you enjoy Rick's other work you will definitely enjoy this story. The whole Trials of Apollo series has such great character arcs and really helps close out the Heros of Olympus series. The voice acting really enhances the story and is a pleasure to listen to

Mispronunciations

The person doing the reading mispronounced a lot of the words. For example : “Arion “ “Myermekes” and “praetor”

Amazing

I really enjoyed the book. I think though it was kinda dark. I think uncle rocks books kinda grow with the reader. First Percy-Jackson was a kids series then heroes of Olympus got into mature themes and trials of Apollo has a lot of death. But the book was actually really good and enjoyable. It was funny and it was suspenseful. And I kinda like the fact that it had death because it kinda deals with something real that isn’t just in a imagination world. So yeah.
