A new Rick Riordan book is always an event that readers of many ages look forward to. Riordan is working on the third and fourth books in his series' right now, The Trials of Apollo: Book Two The Dark Prophecy released earlier this year and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: Book Three The Ship of the Dead in October. We especially love this Norse mythology series and chose The Ship of the Dead as one of the top 10 children's books of 2017
Riordan's latest endeavor is his own publishing imprint with Disney, called Rick Riordan Presents!, and we'll see the first book in March of 2018.
