Good morning, everyone! I should have posted this review yesterday, but here’s a quick explanation of why I didn’t: I got my results from Uni and, unfortunately, I didn’t get in in my first choice of course. I panicked, and I stayed up late trying to think of alternatives, because I really, really wanted to study Applied Languages. I got into Languages, Literature and Cultures instead, so I still got into Uni, but I’m going to research how to figure this out. If I can’t, I’ll have to learn how to be as excited for my second choice as I was for my first! 😛
This whole mess means that you’ll get two posts today, and that I’ll probably not be very active in the next few days (I guess I have a lot of paperwork to fill xD)!
Title: The Hidden Oracle
Author: Rick Riordan
Number of Pages: 374
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.
