First Page Friday: The Tower of Nero


Ms. Brenner, School Library Media Specialist

If you love Greek mythology and if you have been a longtime fan of Rick Riordan’s The Lightning Thief series, you will love The Trials of Apollo series. Book Five is in the series is titled The Tower of Nero and the Greek God Apollo continues his adventures as seventeen-year-old Lester Papadopoulous: We are heading back to where our troubles began- Manhattan, the base of Nero Claudius Caesar, Meg’s abusive stepfather and my least favorite fiddle player. Even if we somehow manage to defeat him, an even more powerful threat lurks in the background: my archnemesis, Python, who has taken up residence at my sacred Oracle of Delphi as if it were some cut-rate bed-and-breakfast.
