Publisher's Summary

The god Apollo, cast down to earth and trapped in the form of a gawky teenage boy as punishment, must set off on the second of his harrowing (and hilarious) trials. He and his companions seek the ancient oracles - restoring them is the only way for Apollo to reclaim his place on Mount Olympus - but this is easier said than done. Somewhere in the American Midwest is a haunted cave that may hold answers for Apollo in his quest to become a god again...if it doesn't kill him or drive him insane first.

Standing in Apollo's way is the second member of the evil Triumvirate - a Roman emperor whose love of bloodshed and spectacle makes even Nero look tame. To survive the encounter, Apollo will need the help of a now-mortal goddess, a bronze dragon, and some familiar demigod faces from Camp Half-Blood. With them by his side, can Apollo face down the greatest challenge of his 4,000 years of existence?

Keeping up the standard

Ok, maybe it took me a couple of chapters to get into this one but then it just seemed to whiz along. Good characters, good lessons and a good story all In keeping with typical Rick Riordan fashion. Highly recommended.

🤩Yes!🤩

This is the most amazing sequel ever. Most as Apollo being a mortal, and meg the ‘raggamuffin dumpster queen’ enjoy their new adventures, There are lots more characters involved, old and new, more enemies, allies and friends to be made and waaay more funny puns and quips too! Very enjoyable! Five stars! I’d recommend reading the first one though. The book will make a lot more sense. 🤪 Bye!

Amazing not easy to stop listening too

This book was filled with humour, easy to think of Apollo, being human and learning to cope with life’s problems. Can’t wait for book 3, and Apollo to get his powers back, will he be a changed God, hope so.
