The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo #2)  by Rick Riordan

Once again, a wonderful adventure by Rick Riordan with Apollo, Leo and Calypso. As Fetus lands in Indianapolis they embark on a crazy adventure. It was really great to see Leo again, as so many of us were afraid we would have to say good bye to him forever. Apollo’s narrations were so much better in this book than the first one. He came across as less annoying, but he also had a lot of interesting insight on what it means to be immortal and mortal. In this case it is because he was a God and is now stuck as a mortal, but I think it can also apply to us in a lot of the ways. The way we look back and see history, and the way our lives can seem so short and can feel so insignificant. The overall feeling that I got from this book is that I need to go back and re-read more Percy Jackson books, because I love this world and these characters so much. Every aspect of this book is so funny yet not cheesy (unless it is trying to be). It was a solid addition to the Percy Jackson universe, but it was not the best book in the Percy Jackson universe.
