The Dark Prophecy
There's only one way he can earn back Zeus' favour, and that's to seek and restore the ancient oracles - but that's easier said than done.Apollo must head to the American Midwest where, rumour has it, a haunted cave may hold answers.There are a few things standing in his way though. The cave could kill him, or drive him insane.Oh, and a Roman Emperor, whose love of bloodshed makes Nero look tame.
