Summary!!!

It’s not easy being Apollo, especially when you’ve been turned into a human and banished from Olympus. On his path to restoring five ancient oracles and reclaiming his godly powers, Apollo (aka Lester Papadopoulos) has faced both triumphs and tragedies. Now his journey takes him to Camp Jupiter in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Roman demigods are preparing for a desperate last stand against the evil Triumvirate of Roman emperors. Hazel, Reyna, Frank, Tyson, Ella, and many other old friends will need Apollo’s aid to survive the onslaught. Unfortunately, the answer to their salvation lies in the forgotten tomb of a Roman ruler . . . someone even worse than the emperors Apollo has already faced.

My Thoughts:

I really did enjoy this read. But it was def not my favorite read of this series. I really did like how the characters dealt with the drama in the previous book. I loved being back at the new setting in this book and the older characters that we met up with. I felt that the pacing in this book was not as tight and hard to feel invested to keep reading. I still love apollo character and really loved his character growth. I felt the pacing was just not as strong and wanted it from this book. I am really excited to read the possible last book in this series late next year.
