Robbie Daymond is completely charming as the god Apollo, who has been transformed into a mortal teenaged boy as a punishment from Zeus. Apollo is conceited and self-important, but Riordan’s funny writing and Daymond’s narration make sure the listener is always on his side as he learns how to manage without his godly gifts. Apollo makes his way to Camp Half-Blood, the home away from home for young demigods, and soon learns that his punishment isn’t the only thing amiss. The story fits into the larger Percy Jackson universe (and Percy even makes an appearance), but even listeners who aren’t caught up with all of those adventures will be able to enjoy this first installment in a new series.
