The Trials of Apollo is, at its core, an amazing series that so many people enjoy. If you liked other series by Rick Riordan, you will definitely love this one as well.
In this series, Apollo, a Greek God and an Olympian, is cast down from Olympus as a regular mortal, and he must learn to live life, not as a God but as a human. He faces challenges, evil Emperors, and a massive snake that is capable of changing the future. Apollo feels how it is to be human where he cannot make mistakes, for the sake of his life and the lives of others around him. He sees how other people suffer for him, for his future.
When reading this series, I enjoyed every bit. I was amazed by the detail, suspense, and characters. I was blown away by how all components and parts came together, to form this great series. This series easily earns a 5 Star rating from me. Because of this story not being incredibly violent while being very easy to understand, I can rate this series for ages 8+.
