The Tyrant's Tomb (Trials of Apollo, The Book Four)

It's not easy being Apollo, especially when you've been turned into a human and banished from Olympus. On his path to restoring five ancient oracles and reclaiming his godly powers, Apollo (aka Lester Papadopoulos) has faced both triumphs and tragedies. Now his journey takes him to Camp Jupiter in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Roman demigods are preparing for a desperate last stand against the evil Triumvirate of Roman emperors. Hazel, Reyna, Frank, Tyson, Ella, and many other old friends will need Apollo's aid to survive the onslaught. Unfortunately, the answer to their salvation lies in the forgotten tomb of a Roman ruler . . . someone even worse than the emperors Apollo has already faced.

    This book is apart of the Trials of Apollo series. This book was very interesting. Apollo must defeat the evil Roman empires. Not only that, but now he has to worry about the fact that he may turn into something due to being scratched. Apollo has learned how to contact a god, so he chooses to contact his sister, Artemis. However, will she come? Apollo will also have to face a person he use to bully, and they may not be merciful. He will have to face people he was not good towards in the past when he was a god. This person is Harpocrates, the god of silence. He willingly leaves to be put in a jar with a person Apollo was also abominable to. He leaves so Apollo can save Camp Jupiter. Apollo also receives help again from the Arrow of Dodona. Also, Reyna resigns from being Camp Jupiter's praetor and Hazel and Frank are the new praetors. Lavina, a Roman demigod, becomes the centurion of the Fifth Cohort. Overall, I enjoyed this book and it was very interesting and also had humor. I recommend it to people who like Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus series, or the Heroes of Olympus series. I also recommend this book to people who are interested in Roman or Greek mythology, or people who want to read fiction based off of it. If you like the Goddess Girls series, then you will also be interested in this as well. I rate this book 5/5.

      The fourth book in the Trials of Apollo series is much better than the first three! In this novel, Apollo is woried about an oncoming attack from two mad emperors. But, fortunately, Apollo gets knowledge that he can summon godly help. The bad news is that he will have to face the person he bullied and...take his last breath. How hard can it be? Very hard, from Apollo's point of view. To make things worse, he gets scratched by a ghoul and will turn undead on the blood moon. Coincidentally, the blood moon is also the time that the emperor's army attacks. The trek is dangerous, but Apollo gets the ingredients needed to ask a god (or goddess) for help. But which god, hmm...

        This book was very entertaining. When Meg and Lester are delivering Jason's body to Camp Jupiter they find a furry friend that almost kills them. They are falling into a small chasm and find actual friends that help them survive throughout the day-well at least until they get to camp. Near the end of the story, a giant battle is raging through the valley of Camp Jupiter. Friends, family, a lot of their lives have been lost. Will Apollo's sister come? Will Meg and her friend Peaches survive? Read Rick Riordan's The Tyrant's Tomb to find out. I rated this book 5 stars because it is amazing, it is very thematic and entertaining . I would suggest this book for 6th graders and 7th graders.

            I am reading this book. I am almost at the end. This is probably the best book in the series. Also what kind of name is Lester Papadopoulos!!!! Zeus is cruel. This book is about Apollo who is a mortal teenager. At camp Jupiter they are preparing for a big war in which the are going to fight Roman emperors.
