Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo
The trouble starts when Apollo introduces Percy and his friend Grover the satyr to the Chryseae Celedones. Three golden women--living statues--appear in front of them, and sing one blissful chord. Apollo has a concert tonight at Mount Olympus, and he needs the Celedones as his backup singers. But there should be a quartet, not a trio--one of the singers has gone rogue. It's up to Percy and Grover to find the missing Celedon somewhere in New York City before she causes any problems. Capturing an attention-seeking automaton in a crowd of mortals is going to require some cagey thinking. Will Percy and Grover succeed, or hit a sour note?

Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo Review

    Definitely not the most meaty addition to the Percy Jackson universe but still super fun! This made me remember how much I’ve missed Grover in Riordan’s more recent books.

    A great short story with another adventure for Percy and Grover. This has humour, adventure, more humour and it is a fantastic read. Riordan has done it again.

    It's Grover's birthday, so Percy takes him his favorite treat: cans. Apollo comes because he has a trio of automaton singers and his problem is that it's supposed to be a quartet. One of his singing automatons has gone rogue. Apollo assigns Percy and Grover the task of finding and bringing the automaton to him before his production. He also lends Grover his lyre, which will help in the quest. The automaton is not happy to be tracked down and uses her enchanted voice to evade capture.

    Another Percy Jackson story...my copy was marked as associated with The Trials Of Apollo but really it's in the Olympians series. Fun but definitely more of the same.

    It was awesome, and when I first picked up this book, I thought it would just be some random book that Rick Riodan wanted to write to continue and never end the Percy Jackson books, because the summary was quite ridiculous to me, but I had it in my to-reads section. I mean, Apollo and his concert and the plot was kind of stupid to me when I read the back of the book. The quest was also weird, too.

I mean, Apollo and his concert and the plot was kind of stupid to me when I read the back of the book. The quest was also weird, too. Who interrupts Grover Underwood's birthday party just to ask them to find a celedone that's missing? OK, sometimes Apollo is WAY too self-centered. It's just a stupid concert, and your voice already sounds good enough! ( I've never heard you sing, or even talk, before, but I'm judging your voice by the way you look, and you look HOT, so I think your voice is good.) But, never judge a book by its cover, right? (OK, even I have to admit, that saying is often not true. In this case it's true, though.) It turned out to be awesome and hilarious, Apollo is just so nice to have around. I was laughing till I cried most of the time. So, I totally didn't regret buying this. Before, I thought I knew that this book was going to be a time-waster. But now, I don't really think so.

    I'm going to be honest, there's not much book to actually review. It's about 30 pages long. HOWEVER it was really funny and captured the vibe of Percy Jackson pretty well. It was nice to see Percy and Grover together again (the original and best bromance), and Apollo was on it so I'm down. The only thing was it felt really rushed, and not a lot actually happened. I get it, it's a wold book day book, but still. It's a 2.5 from me (sorry Percy).

    Wonderful short story as usual focused on Percy and Grover and it was fun reading about him. I don't think that we would be getting a full flegded series about Percy again so these snippets from his life are perfect.This time Percy is celebrating Grover's birthday while he is accosted by Apollo tasking with searching the title of the story. It's fun and quick loved it, you also enjoy it and keep on reading.

    Picked this up for World Book day 2019 and I had a lot of fun with it. This is my first foray into the PJ franchise (other than the not so excellent movies) and I must say I may pick up the Lightning Thief now. Just a tonne of fun with an excellent narration and an interesting take on Greek myth :)

    Una storia molto corta ma anche molto carina. Percy e Grover devono trovare un automa-cantante di Apollo entro sera. Nonostante non ci siano molte pagine per sviluppare l'azione, ci sono comunque scene avvincenti della cattura ed è stata una piacevole lettura breve

    This was a super short story, but it was lots of fun. And I'm always up for seeing more of Percy and Grover :) This felt much more PJO and less HOO if that makes sense. It was funny, and the stakes weren't as high. While this story has next-to-no impact on the PJO universe, it's worth the read if you love the characters are much as I do.

    Honestly? For world book day? One day before the International Women's day you publish a thing like that? Is it a short story? Fan fiction? I am not really sure how to entitle this, but, I am really very sad about the product I purchased.First of all, the booklet holds 128 pages. The story involving Percy Jackson involves exactly 41 pages of these 128 pages, the rest is merchandising and a preview for another book that is not mentioned at all on the cover page.The story itself?

Apollo shows up and asks Percy to find one of his singers who escaped from under Apollos custody.The two boy stash the girlfriend away and set off for their adventure. Girls are obviously not wanted nor needed on adventures.Then they go and catch the singer, who, of course is female and has a lot of power in her voice. Cannot be left alone, needs to be brought back under male custody, because this is where females belong, don't they? Specially if they have powers of their own.And that is a story that was published in 2019, one day before another International Women's day. If I've ever seen a patriarchal backlash then that certainly is it. But then, as long as it entertains and offers a good laugh, who cares to give it a thought what the story actually tells?

    I thought it was great to get a look at something less grand, something minor, that still shows that even when things seem peaceful, some problem crops up out of nowhere. This gave me a look at Percy's life not really seen in the other books, and also gave me something else to worry a bit about other than a real threat like the Titans returning, or a world apocalypse of some sort. It doesn't worry you much, yet it does worry you.

The Singer of Apollo has the author's flair all over it, and he manages to make life-threatening situations at least a bit funny, plus gives an interesting first few paragraphs to entice readers, introducing the problem real quick and telling it like a memory-'This is how it all started'-which is something the author does sometimes. Overall, however, Percy Jackson and the Singer of Apollo's appeal to me comes from the fact that it doesn't show a MASSIVE problem that could tear the world apart, but shows a small(er) problem for the reader to focus on.
