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’ 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Apollo’s first-person narrative, awkwardly juggling his godly egotism and teenage insecurity, is pure comedy, and Riordan’s careful interweaving of Greek myths throughout the story adds some emotional depth to his often vainglorious lead.”


  • “The wearying negotiation of inner and outer self will ring true for (im)mortals of any age as Apollo desperately works to save himself and everyone else. A clash of mythic intrigues and centuries of pop culture to thrill die-hard and new fans alike.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Daymond’s narration is delightful: lively and comical, he perfectly captures the lovably conceited and pompous Apollo, who is constantly being brought down a peg in his humiliating human state, and creates memorable voices for a myriad of creatures, including gurgly, raspy plague ghouls, an authoritative centaur, and a grain spirit in the form of a wailing baby. Percy Jackson fans will eagerly take to this new series, and Daymond’s entertaining narration only adds to the fun.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Robbie Daymond is completely charming as the god Apollo, who has been transformed into a mortal teenaged boy as a punishment from Zeus. Apollo is conceited and self-important, but Riordan’s funny writing and Daymond’s narration make sure the listener is always on his side as he learns how to manage without his godly gifts.”
