Notes From Your Bookseller

Former god Lester Papadopoulos has one final challenge before he can hope to regain his place on Mount Olympus. This time, it’s at the Tower of Nero in New York. Fans of the beloved Trials of Apollo series will be enthralled by this epic conclusion, with their favorite characters and monsters returning to the action one last time. Truly the “storyteller of the gods,” we can’t wait to see what Rick Riordan has in store next.

The Barnes & Noble edition will include “Apollo’s Monster Menagerie,” a captioned poster showing all the monsters that appear in the Trials of Apollo series.

At last, the breathtaking, action-packed finale of the #1 bestselling Trials of Apollo series is here! Will the Greek god Apollo, cast down to earth in the pathetic mortal 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.
