The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.
With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor—and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles—somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon…
The cover and excerpt of the first chapter of this book was released on January, 17th, 2018.
Human Apollo, Meg McCaffrey, and Grover Underwood have been navigating through the Labyrinth for two days. They come across a narrow passage and barely miss a blast of fire, that means their getting close. Suddenly, they start to get chased by Strix, owl-like creatures who eat human flesh and will curse anyone who kills them. Meg and Grover manage to hold most of them back but one breaks free and paralyzes Apollo.
The Trials of Apollo series does not have chapter names, replaced by haikus.
