1812How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, 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 favour.

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.

  1. This book is a ‘spin-off’ of the Percy Jackson series, it follows Apollo, a Greek god, who has been cast out of Olympus and sent to live in the mortal world, as a mortal.

    I think the book was awesome! I liked seeing the classic setting of camp half blood again. But the best part of the whole book was definitely seeing Percy Jackson again. Even if this book wasn’t about him, I feel like authors love their original series the most and always want to go back to them; Percy Jackson was involved. I love seeing Percy Jackson, glimpses of what he’s become within the Apollo storyline.
    Another great part was Apollo himself, Apollo wasn’t just mortal, he was a 16 year old boy with acne, and all of his egotistical personality from when he was a god. This was incredible to read. I felt like I was having the same struggle Apollo was having, tied to the fact he once was a god, but now, simply a human; like when he met his demigod children, ‘oh hey…kids…wait no, my son is older than me’.

    Anyway that was a lot of rambling, but you may not understand it, but you have to read all of the series to find out! I promise it’s amazeballs!
