ABOUT THE BOOK

 

New series from #1New York Timesbestselling author Rick Riordan.

 

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.

I love the premise for this book. Apollo has always been one of my favorite gods so it'll be interesting to see how he's interpreted in this book. I love the cover, the back image of Apollo as godly contrasted with his new teenage body, and the colors on the cover make it a very eye-catchy book.
Very beautiful.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Mr. Riordan for showing kids that you can in fact write a book and stay true to the original stories. My mythology students love reading his books because they exactly parallel what they've been taught in my class. I also appreciate that he made mythology "cool" for a whole new generation of kids.

I'm usually not that into this kind of story, but I gotta hand it to the cover and a good plot -- fantasy has captured my imagination! Hats off to Rick Riordan -- I look forward to a new reading adventure! It's a beautiful cover IMHO -- great colors, and everything about the font, the fuzzy edges of the color, etc. suggests fantasy to my mind! I wouldn't want to see a hard sci fi kind of cover, y'know? Thanks for this opportunity, Kara S

We've been listening to the Lightning Thief series all school year during our commute. My kids would LOVE to read The Trials of Apollo. Adore the cover - very dramatic.
