Thor's hammer is missing... again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon - the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost; it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki - and the price he wants is very high.

I just started this about 3 seconds ago, and I immediately noticed that the narrator was AWFUL! I liked the guy that did the first book, but it seems no one else did.

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. 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' favor. But Apollo has many enemies - gods, monsters, and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed.

The book was amazing, but the narrator (Robbie Daymond) seemed to be giving Apollo a weird accent, almost British.

Who cut off Medusa's head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? And whatever happened to that Golden Fleece? It takes a demigod to know the answers, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes.

I really liked the humor in it, and I think Jesse Bernstein is a great narrator. I haven't finished the heroes of Olympus series yet, and I think some parts were spoilers. This book is good for anyone who has finished both the heroes of Olympus and the Percy Jackson series. Also, some parts like the oracles are more explained in the trials of Apollo. However, if your looking for information on the Greek heroes for a test or something, this is not the book for you. Rick Riordan always adds a lot of humor and sometimes it can get hard to tell the real myth through all the jokes. But if your looking for a book to read because you think Greek myths are interesting, this is perfect.
