Zeus has punished his son Apollo—god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more—by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers?

After experiencing a series of dangerous—and frankly, humiliating—trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Somewhere in the American Midwest, he and his companions must find the most dangerous Oracle from ancient times: a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again—if it doesn't kill him or drive him insane first. Standing in Apollo's way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate, a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of son of Hephaestus Leo Valdez, the now-mortal sorceress Calypso, the bronze dragon Festus, and other unexpected allies—some familiar, some new—from the world of demigods. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride….

In honor of the title, THE DARK PROPHECY, Reagan will now make a prophecy of her own...

*comes back to life because I still need to read this book*
*attempts to compose self*
*fails miserably*
*gives up*
okay okay okay okay okay.
So this is amazing amirite? I cried when the Heroes of Olympus ended because- Percy Jackson is my favorite son. BUT THEN HE CAME BACK *pterodactyl screech* MY LIFE JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER BECAUSE LEO IS BACK AND HE IS MY SECOND FAVORITE SON!
Okay okay okay
Also I have all of these theories clamoring around in my mind, that I can't choose a favorite. Actually, that's not true, I can.


Okay I want us all to look back to the last book in the Heroes of Olympus series (that's Blood of Olympus for you noobs). Let's remember when it was Reyna's POV. Remember when she told the readers about her first encounter with the goddess Aphrodite and she said "You will not find love where you wish or where you hope. No demigod shall heal your heart." THE KEY WORD BEING DEMIGOD!! WHAT IF -and I could be wrong here, BUT WHAT IF- APOLLO COULD HEAL HER HEART OMG CAUSE HES NOT A DEMIGOD
*trying to calm self*
I'm done.

Time to go wait in a dark cave with my Percy Jackson books and wait for this one to come out.
