  The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan

Review by: Bill B.
Montana, Grade 6

Well what do you know. Rick Riordan’s done it again with “The Dark Prophecy”, this epic fiction story is action packed and full of humor. Leo, Calypso, and Apollo goes on a mission to stop the evil emperor Commodus from taking over the world, and naming the world Commodus.
There’s only one group that can stop this emperor. This book is out for you to read in 2017.




When Apollo (Lester Papadopoulos) finds himself on a bronze dragon stripped of almost all of his godly power, with two teenagers Leo, son of the god Hepasteust. Also Calypso, the daughter of the titan Atlas. He runs into, well typically he landed into a horde of blemmyae. Headless men serving under the command of the evil emperor Commodus, who has killed thousands of people and children in cold blood for amusement, back in his day. Now he has been brought back from the dead with a sight high on one thing. Hunting down and demoralizing Apollo. After Apollo sent Commodus to the underworld, for his crimes. Will he be able to thwart Commodus’s plans or will he fall into the clutches of his old enemies hands.





1.I liked this story very much, it was an action packed thriller that made me keep reading it until I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore. The book had surprises at every turn waiting for me to experience.

2.The book was enlightening and full of suspense. It had an interesting plot, because you never knew what was going to happen next in the book. There was a lot of times you would think that they would be in big trouble but they got out.

3. The book had amazing characters. Leo was pretty much the joking and brave Leo. Along with Calypso who had amazing courage and confidence. Apollo (Lester) had a unforgettable characteristics from bravery to cowardice.


I would recommend this book to kids 10 and up. It has some humor younger kids wouldn’t understand as well as a kid that’s ten and older. This book would be easier to understand if you would read all the Percy Jackson books, before you read this book.
