The battle for Camp Jupiter is over. New Rome is safe. Tarquin and his army of the undead have been defeated. Somehow Apollo has made it out alive, with a little bit of help from the Hunters of Artemis. But though the battle may have been won, the war is far from over. Now Apollo and Meg must get ready for the final--and, let's face it, probably fatal--adventure. They must face the last emperor, the terrifying Nero, and destroy him once and for all. Can Apollo find his godly form again? Will Meg be able to face up to her troubled past? Destiny awaits.

I read the e-book the day it came out, and I was mostly pleased with the last book in this Trials of Apollo series. There were some parts that I disliked (Piper! No!), but mostly it was a fairly good book. I liked the way Apollo has grown from the first chapter of The Hidden Oracle up to the last chapter in The Tower of Nero.
This is merely speculation on my part, but it is my personal opinion that if Rick Riordan writes more mythology books, his next book/series will be about Nico and Will rescuing Bob the Titan.
I loved the reference to The Kane Chronicles!
*Spoiler* The River Styx twist was satisfactory. I also liked how Zeus was not the one to restore Apollo to Mt. Olympus, and he doesn't know how Apollo got there.

The character development to Apollo throughout the series is so well done. I grew up reading Percy Jackson, and as a fan of Riordan's books, I was not disappointed. Riordan drops in a few references to his other series, something I appreciated. There are still a few loose ends.... so, who knows? We may get a short story in the future.

Apollo: "I wish I could give you something to express my thankfulness for our friendship."
Meg: -tries to say something-
Apollo (continues): "However, I realized that would not be adequate. So I will merely say this. If you ever need to talk, I'll be here."
Meg: "Actually, I wouldn't mind a unicorn."

Percy: "I can't wait for college to start, although I will miss my mom's cookies."
Apollo: "I believe I can help with that." -snaps fingers- -plate of Mrs. Jackson's cookies appears, fresh from the oven-
Percy: -eyes widen- "Thanks Apollo! I take back almost everything I said about you!"
Apollo: "Thank you. Wait. Almost?"

-While Apollo is hanging onto a ledge above Chaos, about to fall in-
Spirit of the River Styx: "Hold on to it!"
Apollo: "The ledge or the lesson?"
Styx: "You choose."
Apollo: I decided to hang onto both the ledge and the lesson.
