Chapter Summary:

Meg defends herself against a prank at dinner, where she shows her powers and fighting style for the first time. Demeter claims Meg as her child by displaying her symbol of a sickle and sheaves of wheat above Meg’s head. Later on, Apollo finds himself still so good at music, no one can resist listening, but learns his hand cramps after playing an instrument because he is human. After he fails at archery, Apollo swears on the River Styx to never to use his powers till he is a god again. In the afternoon, the campers form teams of two for a three-legged death race in the Labyrinth crafted by Harley.

Return to Camp Half-Blood is an independent podcast by Brayden Stallman, Niamh Sherlock, and Ava Pirie. Each week these friends from college dive deep into the books of the Percy Jackson universe by Rick Riordan, starting with Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus, and now Trials of Apollo. While analyzing each set of chapters, the trio takes an english class approach while diving into how this effects their lives, relates to pop culture, and means about its relationship to literature and the Greek classics.
