"If you can't bring him to me alive, kill him."
Apollo and his friends set out to find the meaning of the dark prophecy given to them. They don't know that Meg McCaffrey, the half mistress ofThe former god, following them. And that is not the only threat that hovers over them: to solve the riddle they will have to overcome an army of headless creatures with excessive manners, deal with a disturbed emperor who calls himself "the new Hercules" and survive an encounter with a horrifying oracle that drives the person who talks to him insane. If Apollo were an all-powerful god, this matter would be easily resolved, but as a teenager with no personal charm, Apollo needs a lot of help... and no small amount of creativity.
The Dark Prophecy is the second book in the Fate of Apollo series, which returns readers to the world of Percy Jackson and his friends, in a tense and funny adventure with the most human hero a god from Olympus could be.
More mythological series by Rick Reardan: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus, The Kane Family and the Egyptian Gods, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Osgard.
Rick Reardon is an award-winning American children's author. As a teenager I read a lot of mythological stories and fantasy and science fiction books. He worked for 14 years as a middle school literature and history teacher, until he retired to devote all his time to writing. When his son asked him for a bedtime story, he composed stories that combine his favorite world of fantasy and mythology. These stories became the successful series Percy Jackson and the Olympians, which fascinated teenagers from all over the world and brought them closer to the stories of Greek mythology.
