Review

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!!

Its a nice book and all but I think you guys missed a clue....Percy mentioned Annabeth was in Boston for a family problem. Thats where Magnus Chase was. Also in The Blood of Olympus (not sure) Annabeth mentions about her uncle in Boston. Rick makes things connect :).

Riordan's Best book since The Lost Hero.Riordan really takes us deep into the character of the egotistical Apollo and is much more of a character driven story than plot driven. He really shows us and makes us feel how A God can feel as a human .Great character development, amazing plot, Perfect humour .This book gets an A+

This book opens the story line for The Trials of Apollo series, which focuses on the aftermath of the war with Gaia and the Giants (as for Apollo is mortal again). As an individual book, this feels slightly boring (except the end). However the book is worth the wait. Can't wait for the Book 2.
