Synopsis: 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.
Another great read. This one is not like the others where they are just finding out they are a demigod, Apollo or Lester already knows who he is. Apollo has to figure out how to get back in Zeus’s good graces, the last two times this has happened he had to serve a master for many years. In comes Meg a young demigod that helps Apollo and then becomes Apollo’s master. Apollo has to do as Meg asks until Zeus is satisfied. Also weird things are happening at Camp Halfblood and Apollo feels like he has to be the one to solve what is going on. He would rather get a demigod to do all of these things for him, but now that he is mortal he can’t make a demigod take on the challenges.
This will be an interesting series to follow and of course some of our famous demigods make some appearances.
