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 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.

    I don’t even know what to say, this book was incredible! I am so thankful to Rick for giving me the opportunity to go on this journey with Apollo! The entire series was amazing and I really enjoyed it! Beautiful storyline and characters. I loved all of Apollo’s adventures and how some older characters/ references where included too! It is obvious that this book was written with love. For all of you readers don’t forget to check out all 21 novels in Percy Jackson, The Heroes of Olympus, The Kane Chronicles, Magnus Chase, and The Trials of Apollo. Rick, you are the true hero.

  • An amazing conclusion.

    I started reading these books years ago when I was younger and now, having finished this series as an adult, I can truly say these are wonderful. The complexity of the emotions, coupled with humor, and a masterful amount of lore makes these novels a pleasure to matter your age. If I could recommend only one thing it would be that, if you are reading these as a young adult, that you stop back in and read them again in five/ten years...just so you can see how much your perception/reactions might change. I swear on the river Styx you will not be disappointed.
  • Another great read

    Fell in love with the series from the start and enjoyed this final chapter just as well. Hope the Percy-verse continues with either new or existing characters.

    This is by far my all-time favorite book. It was only posted this morning, and I already finished it! I don't know if more books will be written, but if another one is written, I'm excited to read it!
  • amazing resolution

    this book is amazing. it perfectly concludes the series in a very satisfying way. i love the way it ties in new characters and old characters (i would die for estelle blofis) and the way it nods to elements of other books and even the other series, namely the Kane Chronicles reference that made me happy scream. So please, do yourself a favor and read this book, and i hope Pipers part at the end makes you gasp as dramatically and fangirl as much as i did :)
