A new Rick Riordan book is always an event and something readers of all ages look forward to. He has two series going right now, The Trials of Apollo (book two, The Dark Prophecy released earlier this year) and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, which we picked as one of the top 10 children's books of 2017. Book three, The Ship of the Dead is one of our picks for the best children's books of the year. Riordan's latest endeavor is his own publishing imprint, Rick Riordan Presents, and we'll see the first book in March of 2018.
