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.


  • Amazing

    I love solangelo it’s the only reason I started reading Percy Jackson and all the others, and now I’m hooked. Nico is basically the best character ever made and yeah. Apollo is great haikus are great. Meg should be a goddess, and camp half blood still lives :]

  • Best book ever

    By percy jackson fan 77777
    I bought this book and loved it! It’s funny,serious and plain out amazing. But only read it if you have read all the other series if rick Riordan like Percy Jackson and the olympians and the hero’s of Olympus.
  • Good but A little confusing

    By Percy_Fan
    I liked it but I’m not familiar with the Roman Emperers and all that stuff. Over all it was really good 😄

    By nico_di_angelo14
    The thought of turning a Greek god into a mortal is so funny! And we get to see NICO! I savor every single Nico Di Angelo moment in this book!

    spoilers i like writing long reviews😁 So i started reading this book before i had started the HOO series and i honestly hated it. (Such an idiotic move on my part, all of Rick’s stories are amazing.) I stopped reading once Apollo mentioned Percy cause i assumed spoilers. Fast forward like, only a month or two and i’ve finished HOO and am now obsessed with anything Percy Jackson related, including the Magnus Chase series but mainly PJO, and HOO. So i finish The Blood of Olympus and am super sad that the book just ended like that. I was like “What now? When will we see a reunion with Leo? The story doesn’t feel complete!” So yeah i started Trials of Apollo beginning of summer now that you know my unnecessary story lemme review it. I’m familiar with the first chapter from reading it a few months ago, and i still hate Meg a lot. But then we see Percy again and him being on the swim team is honestly my life. Then Sally’s pregnant and I catch Percy’s reference to Magnus Chase about the Boston thing with Annabeth. So they go to Camp Half-Blood and at this point i’m starting to REALLY like Meg’s character. I love how she doesn’t care what other people think of her and just does what she wants. Also I already knew they would get together from spoilers i failed to avoid, but Solangelo is SO FREAKING ADORABLE and that’s all i have to say about that. Also Harley is so cute. Then a bunch of stuff happens with the Grove of Trodona and Meg just leaves Apollo and there’s a giant naked statue that they all have to kill and just when they start to lose hope the usual happens. Percy shows up and basically saves the day by buying Apollo some time and bam everyone’s happy and then Leo comes and the happiness multiplies times twenty. And the fact that Nico organized a line just for punching Leo was hilarious and I wanted to punch him too just for making everyone sad😂 So yeah that’s the book i kind of skipped all the actual important stuff my bad. A little upset that we didn’t get to see Percy reuniting with Sally again but it’s too late now oh well. I’d say a solid 8/10.
