No te pierdas esta segunda parte de la saga más espectacular de Rick Riordan: #LasPruebasDeApolo.
Para castigar a Apolo, el dios del trueno decide mandarlo a la Tierra bajo la apariencia de Lester, un adolescente granujiento y sin poderes, claro. Ahora, el único modo que Apolo tiene de regresar al monte Olimpo es devolviendo la luz a las profecías de los oráculos que se han o curecido. Pero ¿qué podrá hacer un Apolo desprovisto de poderes?
Tras superar una serie de pruebas peligrosísimas (y, para qué engañarnos, bastante humillantes) en el Campamento Mestizo, se embarcará en un viaje a través de Estados Unidos para conseguir localizar todos los oráculos. Por suerte, todo lo que ha perdido en poderes lo ha ganado en amistades, así que no va a tener que arreglárselas solo.
ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONZeus has punished his son Apollogod of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and moreby casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers?
After experiencing a series of dangerousand frankly, humiliatingtrials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Somewhere in the American Midwest, he and his companions must find the most dangerous Oracle from ancient times: a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god againif 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 son of Hephaestus Leo Valdez, the now-mortal sorceress Calypso, the bronze dragon Festus, and other unexpected alliessome familiar, some newfrom the world of demigods. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride. . . .
