The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)
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.

    I've officially read 13 Camp Half Blood books and I DON'T THINK I'LL EVER HAVE ENOUGH OF THEM. This was brilliant. I laughed my head off at the perfectness of the humour and sass and basically Apollo's narcissism was glorious. TRULY GLORIOUS. And I particularly loved that this one didn...

    This was tons of fun! The perspective of a god is great to read from, especially since Apollo made for a hilarious narrator. While I didn't enjoy it quite as much as his other books, it was still great! ...

    Ah it was so nice to be back in Rick's universe!While I thought this was very fun and entertaining, and I LOVED getting to read about what everyone was up to, this was probably my least favorite of his so far. It was still great, I'm just saying in comparison to The Percy Jackson and t...

    BOOKTUBEATHON 2016 BOOK #4I really enjoyed this, though not as much as other books in this universe. IT HAS A LOT TO LIVE UP TO! Apollo's narration was hilarious and amazing and EVERYTHING and there was a really important narrative about relationships, specifically abusive ones, that I...

    "Nothing is more tragic than loving someone to the depths of your soul and knowing they cannot and will not ever love you back." Time and time again, it has been proven that whenever I'm reading a Rick Riordan book, I read so fast that the words blurred. I mean, I can't stop flipping ...

    The middle dragged a bit, but I liked Apollo as a character, especially towards the end. Plus it was really awesome to go back to Camp Half-Blood, see Percy, Will, and Nico again! ...
