As soon as I started reading I instantly remembered why I love this book! It draws you in from the first line, for a short book the character development is incredible and I for one feel like I really got drawn into the story and taken a long for the ride.
I was a little late to the Apollo party – I figured I could read them at my own pace, and I would never have to wait for a book to be published. But then I started reading them and I enjoying them and soon enough I had whizzed through the first few books. I really, really enjoyed the book again, and read it over two days! Two days, which means I have to wait for the next book, just like everyone else and I cannot wait!!!!! 🙂
As for the story, it kicks off as always just after the end of the previous book, and all the characters are still suffering from the things they learnt or did in the previous books, and they all have a lot of baggage to carry around with them.
Overall, I was happy with this book and would happily recommend it to anyone, and if you enjoy an easy uncomplicated read, that makes you feel like you know the characters, this is a good book to start with.

Monkeys take on Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone!
In today’s digital era, with new ways of interacting the digital world being created everyday, this fresh take on a social media obsessed thirty something is an amazing read. After realising her life is in disarray, Daisy agrees to a digital detox with her sister, whom has her own agenda for escaping life. The obsession with everything digital and social media is the crux of the story, it is what drives everything from beginning to end, and I think it is genius, comedic outlook on what our digital obsesses future may look like.
Egotistical, narcissistic, selfish and self-absorbed and yet, you can’t help but love Apollo in this brilliant follow up to the Percy Jackson series. Instead of focussing on demi-gods, this story follows Apollo, once the mighty son of Zeus whom carried his flaming chariot across the heavens, is now dropped to earth as a human, and not just any human, a teenage boy with acne! Apollo’s worst nightmare.
