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.

        The Trials of Apollo is a funny and from the other Rick Riordan books is going to have some sad parts at the end but it takes Greek mythology (which i happen to be into) and the modern day world and and puts them together to make an extraordinary book.

              I am so excited to read this book! I heard several people saying it is an AWESOME book! Rick Riordan is a great author and I read the 'Percy Jackson' series and 'The Heroes of Olympus' , If you read them, I think you'll know why I love it! I will ask my mom to buy me the series once Rick Riordan writes the last book;' The Tower of Nero'!

                    Apollo has done many things in his immortal life, but he has never landed in a dumpster in an ally. He has been turned into a mortal, and has been blamed for the war that had happened in the Heroes of Olympus series. Apollo must serve a girl named Meg, the daughter of Demeter. Whenever Meg needs help, her friend Peaches comes to the rescue. Also, something strange is going on at Camp Halfblood. Demigods are going missing with no sign of where they could have gone. The oracles are not working. Not only that, but in Apollo's mind, what's worse is the fact that he is now named Lester and has acne. Overall, this book was funny and I enjoyed reading the haikus at the beginning of each chapter. I recommend this book to people who liked the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I rate this book 5/5.
