I would give this book 5 for a review.
Book Summary Zeus has punished his son Apollo–god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more–by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester. The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. What is affecting the Oracles, and how can Apollo/Lester do anything about them without his powers? After experiencing a series of dangerous–and frankly, humiliating–trials at Camp Half-Blood, Lester must now leave the relative safety of the demigod training ground and embark on a hair-raising journey across North America. Fortunately, what he lacks in godly graces he’s gaining in new friendships–with heroes who will be very familiar to fans of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus series. Come along for what promises to be a harrowing, hilarious, and haiku-filled ride. . . .
My Non-Spoiler thoughts:
I really enjoyed the second book in the series. I love the trio that developed between Apollo, Leo and Cylpso. I loved how the Apollo really had to spend alot of time individually with both of these characters. I loved the dynamics that I saw in this book. I think that this book did not pull on punches in looking at his past. I really did enjoy the mystery and loved the new characters that we met. I also loved the ending and learning who would be joining us for book 3 in this series. I also hope we get some more camos from the other characters in this world. I still love Apollo and Meg relationship really got better in this book and can’t wait to see where they go next. I can’t wait for may!
