The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
Published by Disney-Hyperion in May 2016
The Trials of Apollo #1

"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 disorientated, 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 favour.

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." -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
Riordan does not disappoint.  Apollo has become mortal, and he must learn to survive.  OMG his sense of humor is on point.  He is sarcastic, and self-involved, and just hilarious.  I really think that this book is one of the best Riordan has penned because of the humor.  I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy from my local library.
