Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Hidden Oracle: The Trials of Apollo, Book One, by Rick Riordan, read by Robbie Daymond.

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 4,000-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus' 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.

Three books in and just loving this series

Moved to this after finishing the Percy Jackson books and the Heroes of Olympus (ideally read these FIRST before reading/listening to this series). As well-paced and structured as the others with some old and new characters - as delightful as always. What's different is the first person point of view which provides a welcome change of style that is appropriate for the story angle. It also allows for some great one liners in Apollo's internal dialogue. My favourite was "I hope I don't catch Caligulitis". I'm pleased they've stuck with the same narrator all the way through - the chop and change in one previous series was really disruptive (especially as the first narrator had totally nailed Leo's accent). Mr Daymond does an excellent job here and is just right for this series.

Amazing as always

I've gone through each one of the books in the whole Percy Jackson series and this one is just as awesome as the rest. It sits nicely within the world that has been mastercrafted for us while standing alone as it's own story. Performance fits the whole book nicely as well and I just couldn't bring myself to ever turn it off. Can't wait to get to the next one 10/10

A new perspective

It's a great story, with an interesting plot, many great characters and fun events. Having it told out of the perspective of the human-turned God Apollo is at times difficult though, simply because of his persona and it gets tiring at times, though I would still definitely recommend this book.

Apollo

lived this story, bought for my young son but also enjoyed by myself. Witty, sharp and contemporary whilst providing historical context to the story.

Great narrator + amazing story, of course

The narrator fitted perfectly with the characters, I really loved it. I'll be jumping straight into the next book.
