About the Book

New series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rick Riordan.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.

But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.


The Hidden Oracle released five retail-specific editions. Each edition includes a unique insert that you can get exclusively from that retailer. Collect them all!

  1. Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition includes a Camp Half-Blood letter from Apollo to Zeus!
