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.

Most of this book feels like Percy Jackson the reboot. Also I don’t Love Apollo, he seems like such an obvious ...
This story happens after The Heroes of Olympus series. You don't necessarily have to read Percy Jackson and The Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus first, but I would highly recommend it. It is a continuation of that storyline. Percy, Nico and some of the other characters pop up a few times. Cam...
Only 361 pages? Riordan is taking it easy on his readers. And maybe himself. Anyway, following the events of The Heroes of Olympus, Zeus is a little displeased with Apollo and demonstrates this by turning him into a human teen (read: YA/MG novel star) and casting him to earth. He appears to be ful...
