Cover reveal alert! Entertainment Weekly just dropped a couple of teasers from the fourth book in the Trials of Apollo series, The Tyrant’s Tomb. Not just the cover, but a couple of chapters too! We took a look and here’s what we learned.
1. Such a great cover.
There is climbing! And a sword fight with a bird. And even hanging on for dear life! And is that Reyna in a cape?! Ahhh! So good.
2. Lester drives at high speeds.
Lester even leads a car chase…sort of… There’s definitely a chase, but…uhm…there’s only one car. The one doing the chasing is, well, somewhat larger than a car…
3. There is major onomatopoeia.
So many SHLOOMPs and CREAK CREAKS and REE REEs we felt like we were reading the book with headphones. There was even a “blergh!”
4. Also there are manubalistas.
And they are awesome. They’re like these heavy Roman weapons and you’re just going to have to go read about them but seriously, they’re sick.
5. Oh gods, JASON.
Uncle Rick continues to devastate us with this. It makes sense that there would be Jason-related action after, well, you know… But then the action kicks in so fast you’re going to…
You know what? You should just go read the excerpt yourself. And then pre-order your copy of The Tyrant’s Tomb ASAP!
