Teaser Tuesdays: Cast in Deception

IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER TEASER TUESDAY!

This feature (or meme) is one I originally discovered on my friend Kim’s site Book Munchies, and is hosted by The Purple Booker. For those of you who would like to play along at home–or more specifically on your homepage–here is how Teaser Tuesdays work.

  • Grab a current read and open it to a random page
  • Share a couple “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! 
    • Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others

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.

What can I say?  It’s Rick Riordan, and a continuation of Percy Jackson’s world. OF COURSE I want to read this book!!! LOL Sorry if I’m a bit too excited for some of you, but I can’t really care too much. These books are really that good. What I’m looking forward to with the start of this new series is that we’re getting the perspective of one of the Gods! Apollo takes center stage and that change in viewpoint is HUGE. I do hope we get the opportunity to see some of the characters from past books. I’d really like to know if Leo ever made it home. But even if it’s got a whole new set of Demigods I bet they’ll be just as cool as their predecessors. Combine Riordan’s trademark humor with his irreverent interpretation of the Ancient Greek and Roman myths, and I just know this will be another epic series!
