Rick Riordan is the popular young-adult writer of the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” book series. Many of Rick Riordan’s books are set in the modern world where gods and godesses of old have demi-god children. Demi-gods are half-mortal and half-god children. He wrote other books with various gods and godesses set in the modern world such as “The Heroes of Olympus” book series, “The Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard” book series, and the “Kane Chronicles” book series.
Now, Rick Riordan releases his newest book in the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” world. The book is named, “The Sun and the Star.” The book is written by both Rick Riordan and the author who is named Mark Oshiro. “The Sun and the Star” is about a character who is named “Nico di Angelo.” Nico is the son of Hades. Hades is a Greek god of the Underworld. Due to his lineage, Nico has strange and powerful powers.
Here is a summary describing “The Sun and the Star” which can be found on Rick Riordan’s website:
“As the son of Hades, Nico di Angelo has been through so much, from the premature deaths of his mother and sister, to being outed against his will, to losing his friend Jason during the trials of Apollo. But there is a ray of sunshine in his life–literally: his boyfriend, Will Solace, the son of Apollo. Together the two demigods can overcome any obstacle or foe. At least, that’s been the case so far…
Now Nico is being plagued by a voice calling out to him from Tartarus, the lowest part of the Underworld. He thinks he knows who it is: a reformed Titan named Bob whom Percy and Annabeth had to leave behind when they escaped Hades’s realm. Nico’s dreams and Rachel Dare’s latest prophecy leave little doubt in Nico’s mind that Bob is in some kind of trouble. Nico has to go on this quest, whether Mr. D and Chiron like it or not. And of course Will insists on coming with. But can a being made of light survive in the darkest part of the world? and what does the prophecy mean that Nico will have to “leave something of equal value behind?”
Nico will have to face demons both internal and external as his relationship with Will is tested to the core in this standalone adventure featuring two of the most popular characters in the Percy Jackson saga.”
It is great that Rick Riordan still has stories to publish that are set in Percy Jackson’s world. I will be excited to see what else he has in store for his fans next.
Always with infinite love,
