Rick Riordan (and others)

Half Boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

Honestly, blowing up another school was the last thing I wanted to do.
As the son of a Greek God, I've had my share of near-death disaster - and now my arch enemy Luke wants to invade our camp via an ancient labyrinth.

If he succeeds, thousands of bloodthirsty monsters will attack. So it's goodbye sunshine, hello darkness as four of us descend into the terrifying underground and beyond . . .

The Dark Prophecy (The Trials of Apollo Book 2)

Rick Riordan

The second title in Rick Riordan's Trials of Apollo series - set in the action-packed world of Percy Jackson.

The god Apollo, cast down to earth and trapped in the form of a gawky teenage boy as punishment, must set off on the second of his harrowing (and hilarious) trials.

He and his companions seek the ancient oracles - restoring them is the only way for Apollo to reclaim his place on Mount Olympus - but this is easier said than done.

Somewhere in the American Midwest is 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 a now-mortal goddess, a bronze dragon, and some familiar demigod faces from Camp Half-Blood. With them by his side, can Apollo face down the greatest challenge of his four thousand years of existence?

The Burning Maze (The Trials of Apollo Book 3)

Rick Riordan (and others)

I WAS A GOD, ONCE. UNTIL I WAS CAST OUT BY MY FATHER, ZEUS.

NOW I'M AN AWKWARD MORTAL TEENAGER CALLED LESTER.

My way out? A series of scary and dangerous trials, of course.

For my third mission, I must:

Journey through the Labyrinth to free an Oracle who only speaks in puzzles. Which sounds easy.

Then, defeat the most vicious of three very vicious Roman Emperors.

Is that all? No, I have to do everything without any of my godly powers. Wonderful. Looks like I'll need all the help I can get - from new friends, and old . . .

-----

Clarisse, daughter of Ares, the Greek god of war, needs Percy Jackson's help.

Her father's chariot has been stolen and she has to get it back by sunset.

Can Percy and Clarisse get the chariot back before it's too late?

The Serpent's Shadow: The Graphic Novel (The Kane Chronicles Book 3)

Rick Riordan

CARTER AND SADIE KANE, descendants of the magical House of Life, are in pretty big trouble.

Despite their bravest efforts, Apophis, the giant snake of Chaos, is still threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Now the Kanes must do something no magician has ever managed - defeat Apophis himself. No pressure there then.

Battling against the forces of Chaos, their only hope is an ancient spell - but the magic has been lost for a millennia. Will they find the serpent's shadow, or will they be led to their deaths in the depths of the Underworld?

Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor (Book 2)

Rick Riordan

Thor's hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon - the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki - and the price he wants is very high.

Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead (Book 3)

Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan's Norse hero faces his greatest challenge yet in the final instalment of the series.

Loki the trickster god is free from his chains. Now he's readying Naglfar, the Ship of the Dead, armed with a host of giants and zombies, to sail against the Norse gods and begin the final battle of Ragnarok. It's up to Magnus Chase and his friends to stop Loki's plans, but to do so they will have to sail across the oceans of Midgard, Jotunheim and Niflheim in a desperate race to reach Naglfar before it's ready to sail on Midsummer's Day.

Along the way, they will face angry sea gods, hostile giants, and an evil fire-breathing dragon who happens to be a former acquaintance. But Magnus's biggest challenge will be facing his own inner demons. To defeat Loki, Magnus will need to use words, not force. This will require finding a magical elixir so deadly that it will either make Magnus Chase powerful enough to out-talk the silver-tongued Loki, or destroy Magnus utterly.
