During his tour for The Sword of Summer , Riordan announced his next project, a five part series about the god Apollo. The series will be about how Apollo has been turned into a human because Zeus is angry with him. He becomes a year-old mortal boy in New York City with absolutely no powers. He has a lot of enemies and only a few friends — friends who spend their time at Camp Half-Blood. Riordan referred to this series as "the capstone on Percy Jackson's world", so that by the end of it, all of the major characters from both previous series would be revisited.

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 disoriented, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. 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. Zeus has punished his son Apollo—god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more—by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester.
On the way, they run into a pretty nasty undead monster. Read the first two chapters below. A warrior dies, you should do what you can to get their body back to their people for funerary rites. I am over four thousand years old. But I find it rude not to properly dispose of corpses.
