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 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 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.
So, Rick Riordan started another Greek Mythology book and nobody told me?! Where the hell have I been? Seriously! Well, regardless of my lateness to this novel I’m still happy I became privy before it came out (May 3). Although I’m looking forward to this, I’m kinda disappointed for two reasons:
A) It’s not going to be an Adult novel. With a century old deity becoming human he’d be very…experienced to be a teenager, he has kids at freaking Camp Half-Blood for gosh sakes! We ALL know how those gods get down, which would’ve made a fun Adult fantasy novel.
B) Hasn’t he been milking the Percy Jackson since, I don’t know, forever! It’s the same character over and over again.
Buuuut I’m still going to read them, and love them, and fangirl them…
