Summary:

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.

    What a great way to continue the Percy Jackson saga: throw a fabulously full-of-himself god into a puny teenaged human form and watch the fun - and danger - begin as he reluctantly learns what it takes to be a mortal hero. Apollo-turned-Lester is one of Riordan's funniest characters and he is perfectly teamed with a feisty new demi-god -- a young girl named Meg - who has quickly become one of my favorite Riordan characters. Her sidekick (other than the teenager-god) is a riot. I may never eat a peach again. Percy Jackson fans will be glad to know he's involved in Apollo's adventures as is Camp Half-Blood and a handful of other familiar characters. How does one follow Percy Jackson's all-out war with a powerful earth goddess to come up with an equally ominous villain? Pit mortal-weak Apollo against three of history's most infamous Roman emperors, returning to conquer the world -- again. In a way, because they really existed and really were horrifying sadists, I think the evil emperors are actually the scariest villains Riordan has introduced. In this first book we get to meet Nero -- and his terrifying colossal statue of himself. Great fun! Loved this audio version; the narrator is a fantastic performer.
