The Hidden Oracle


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.

    "Is anything sadder than the sound of a god hitting a pile of garbage bags?" Or to paraphrase, is there anything sadder than your favorite author becoming a sellout?It's blatantly obvious Riordan isn...

    “Things can turn out differently, Apollo. That's the nice thing about being human. We only have one life, but we can choose what kind of story it's going to be.” Dammit, Rick Riordan. This book w...

    1. 5 stars A Tired Spin on the Same Old Formula I’ll be perfectly blunt: you don’t look to Riordan for originality. We all know this to be true. Hell, the very first Percy Jackson books rode the H...

    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 grea...
