Summary

Summary

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus's favor.

But Apollo has many enemies-gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Booklist Review

Riordan thrilled readers with the tale of a boy who discovers he's a demigod, and in this spin-off series starter, he turns the tables. Apollo has done something to anger his father, Zeus, and he's been cursed to walk the earth as gawky, mortal 16-year-old Lester Papadopolous. If that weren't bad enough, he's required to obey the command of whichever demigod he encounters first, and in his case, that's grouchy, volatile Meg, a 12-year-old with a powerful ability to wield garbage as a weapon. Together, the pair make their way to Camp Halfblood, only to discover that demigods are going missing, and it has something to do with whispering trees, the blocked Oracle of Delphi, and a dangerous new threat. Apollo's first-person narrative, awkwardly juggling his godly egotism and teenage insecurity, is pure comedy, and Riordan's careful interweaving of Greek myths throughout the story adds some emotional depth to his often vainglorious lead. Cinematic scene breaks and fast-paced action give this plenty of appeal, but it's the familiar faces that will reel in Riordan's fans.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2016 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

In this book, the first in Riordan's Trials of Apollo series (a spin-off of his bestselling Percy Jackson series), the god Apollo is punished by Zeus and sent to Earth in the form of a gawky teenage boy. He is forced to serve a 12-year-old demigod girl who just recently discovered her powers, faces danger from an ongoing series of mythological creatures trying to kill him, and attempts to solve the mystery of why the Oracle of Delphi has gone silent. Narrator Daymond's narration is delightful: lively and comical, he perfectly captures the lovably conceited and pompous Apollo, who is constantly being brought down a peg in his humiliating human state, and creates memorable voices for a myriad of creatures, including gurgly, raspy plague ghouls, an authoritative centaur, and a grain spirit in the form of a wailing baby. Percy Jackson fans will eagerly take to this new series, and Daymond's entertaining narration only adds to the fun. Ages 10-14. A Disney-Hyperion hardcover. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
