  • Hard to put down.

    Again the story is told from a no-longer-a-god Apollo’s point of view – who has a flawed memory yet entertaining voice. Each chapter starts with a haiku describing what’s to come without giving the story away. Apollo (or Lester Papadopoulos as his mortal driver’s licence proclaims) is still on his quest to find all the lost ancient oracles in his pursuit to become immortal again. Though Apollo is charming in his own way, having Leo and Calypso as his companions made me enjoy the book more. Probably because I’ve liked Leo since we met him in the Heroes of Olympus series. (I’d advise you to read the previous series before starting this one.) Because the story is fast-paced and monsters from myth keep popping up in unexpected places, the story kept me guessing and was hard to put down. My favourite part of the book is where Apollo faces the Oracle of this part of the quest. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t read it, but it shows not only how setting can be a character all on its own but also how characters can change and grow in unexpected ways. It’s really well done. I’ll admit that the evil emperor in this book had me gagging. His brutality knows no bounds. More than once I had to take a break from the book because of his cruelty towards animals. I know this makes him an excellent antagonist as he is not just bad for the sake of being bad, but he thinks he has a higher purpose while making the reader dislike him enough to perhaps set him on fire (or whatever your violence of choice). For lovers of fantasy, myth and YA/MG fiction, I’ll definitely recommend this.
