PRAISE FOR THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS

". . .fans will revel in the adventures, wit, and memorable characters found in this thundering conclusion to The Heroes of Olympus series."―Booklist Online

PRAISE FOR THE LOST HERO

"Readers longing for a return to Camp Half-Blood will get their wish.... ...the action scenes come frequently as the three heroic teens fight monstrous enemies in North American locales..... Flashes of humor lighten the mood at times, but a tone of urgency and imminent danger seems as integral to this series as the last. With appealing new characters within a familiar framework, this spin-off will satisfy the demand for more."―Booklist

PRAISE FOR THE HOUSE OF HADES

"In this adventure, victories are hard-won and the essence of bravery nuanced, making the journey as satisfying as it is entertaining."―Kirkus

Product Description

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 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.

(Reviewed first on For The Love of Fictional Worlds)

After Harry Potter, it was Percy Jackson that pretty much hooked me - in fact, till today, these two are the only worlds that I will always have an hankering to go back to!

So when Like Queen Rowling, when Uncle Rick comes out with a new series (with a tease about the appearance of Percy Jackson!), you don't say WHATTT?? YOU JUST FREAKING PRE-ORDER THE HELL OUT OF IT :D

And that's exactly what I did! :P

Just a little heads up though, it would be better if you read The Percy Jackson Series and the Heroes of Olympus Series (in THAT EXACT reading order!), for there are characters that make re-appearance (YAY!!) and circumstances that are referred to, that you can only get the reference if YOU HAVE READ the aforementioned series :D

This new series is about the God Apollo, - and when you have a God turned to a whiny, pubsecent teenage boy, you know you have a gold mine in sarcasm, humor and repartee that Uncle Rick is so famous for!

Here's the thing - after a while, all the demi-gods stories tend to blend into one another, even though I adore Percy Jackson and the subsequent Heroes of Olympus Series (I need a re-read!), Sword of The Summer, became my least favorite of all.

But just when I think Uncle Rick has reached his pinnacle, he throws The Hidden oracle at me :P

Apollo isn't much of a human being - suffering from the narcissism and fallacy of being a GOD, he is entitled, whiny and absolutely irritating - AND I LOVED HIM!!

An awesome job as always by Rick Riordan! Though there were some things that seemed a bit rushed and there were some definite OOCness in the characters, the book was overall an awesome read and unputdownable. Not gonna give any spoilers! Rick Riordan is back at it again. Though I do wish to see more interaction between Nico and the others, I don't think it'll be possible cause, spoilers. But anyways, awesome job, swesome book, will read it again! Awesome inclusion of all races and stuff from Rick Riordan! And mortal Apollo is the absolute best. His change in character develops throughout the book and he starts behaving more like a demigod.

Like all the other books by Rick, this one was also quite an interesting one.The story line, setting and characters were all given quite a large amount of thought and there were no gaping holes in the plot. There were a lot of unexpected twists in the story too.
However, like all other books, this one had a few cons as well. Firstly, the price of the book is too high on kindle in India. Lastly, some parts of the book were, I felt, dragged.
Overall, this book is definitely a good read for lovers of greek mythology and the god Apollo.

Many of us thought that the ending to The Heroes of Olympus was a mammoth clifhanger. Some thought a new series was underway. Well, here it is! This book does not focus on the seven of the Great Prophecy, but shines the spotlight on a no-longer-immortal, Apollo. Here comes the only thing that I felt was rather weird. In the PJO and HoO series, Apollo is portrayed as a very laid-back god with a huge attitude. In this series, he seems serious, old-fashioned, and barely cracks a smile. His narration was funny, but not intentionally so. Was it a part of the whole BAM-you're-a-mortal thing? That was the only wrong-ish thing in the plot. Overall, a wonderful start to a seemingly wonderful new series with gret potential.

A very good book. when i first heard that we are going to return to camp half blood in a new series . i was not very enthusiastic about it. i felt that CHB will overstay its welcome for me. but i am pleased to say i loved it .. I now again want to go to CHB in next book. AS a person who has read pjo and hoo seriesi was pleasantly surprised at how good this book was. it was funny although in the climax there are some jokes which fall flat for me and those jokes are repeated again and again so that was a negative for me . I loved the concept of the villain although the villain itself was a little underwhelming still i look forward for more. If u are looking forward to the action , u may be a little bit let down but i enjoyed that aspect as well since it was refreshing for me . I loved all the characters . In the beginning , the story had a lot of jokes , i was giggling most of the time . the middle was the strongest aspect of the entire story , the cllimax was pretty good too . I cant wait for the next book . I am sure yall will enjoy too .

Believe me, I had lots of hope on Uncle Rick.
I enjoyed the Percy Jackson series. It was a welcome, refreshing change and an amazing reading experience. HoO was good as well, but maybe except the first and last book in that series. But Trials of Apollo is a different story.
Writing from the POV of a God isn't what everyone can easily achieve. Rick Riordan did it really well. But I felt his writing style deterioriate and the jokes werent really funny. I loved it when I was reading it but later, whan I had calmed down, I realised that it wasn't really worth it. It was good, but not amazing. I would rather recommend you to borrow it from a library.
