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.

Why I’m Waiting

I fell in love with author Rick Riordan’s writing from the very first moment I began reading Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief. I’ve always loved Greek mythology, and that series was very fun to read. Maybe that’s why two of the books were adapted into film. As much as I loved PJ&tO, I think I might have loved reading the spin-off series, The Heroes of Olympus even more. Now that Riordan has decided to create another spin-off series, how could I resist? Especially considering it will be from the Gods’ perspective this time around. Not only will we get to see more about their world, but we’ll also get an opportunity to (hopefully) catch up with some old friends.
