Review

Greek god Apollo is having a bad day: he's been stripped of all his powers and banished to earth in the body of a 12-year-old boy. He can't quite remember what he's being punished for, but is determined to get it over with quickly so heads to Camp Half-Blood, a sanctuary for demi-gods. Except when he arrives, the camp is in chaos: kids are going missing and mysterious enemy 'The Beast' is threatening everyone's future. It's up to Apollo to figure out why, and take on an epic quest to save New York.

An action-packed adventure, The Hidden Oracle brilliantly combines Greek mythology with a modern setting and modern heroes. Apollo's struggles to figure out friendships and family and just how to be human are both hilarious and heart-warming, all whilst he battles against ancient monsters and mad Roman emperors.
