The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan


DNF @ p.59

I'm probably going to get struck down by the furies for this but... I kind of hate Apollo, you guys. After reading book series with characters like Artemis Fowl and Lestat, I've come to the conclusion that I just really, really can't stand supernatural Mansplainy pants characters... and there's something that's just kind of creepy about an immortal god trapped in the body of a sixteen-year-old boy lusting after a forty-year-old woman (i.e. Percy Jackson's mom). There's something kind of forced in the narrative and I actually thought this was published in the late 2000s because the cultural references were so off (i.e. Britney Spears at the VMAs). This isn't it.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review! 

1.5 out of 5 stars
