The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.

With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor—and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles—somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon. . . .

It seems Rioridan has done it again! This book is a really good addition to the (Trials of Apollo) series. This one had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. I highly recommend reading it.

As usual Rick delivers an amazing story. We live an a world where faith, compassion, loyalty among friends and family is almost history a thing of the past. In the stories there’s a lot of drama, betrayal, mystery , but above all there’s friendship love Humans at their best; being all we could be if we all got along. Love the fantasy. God bless he’s imagination and he’s talent to put it writing. Keep them coming, :)

Okay. Let's get one thing straight off the bat here. I am NOT crying. My eyes are LEAKING. Got it? Good. This was another incredible addition to this world. I love that we keep running into our old favorite characters and seeing them as they settle into life after adventure (however long that will last). I cannot wait for the next installment.... Speaking of... Why is it not coming out til next fall!? -sobsob- I don't know if I can last that long!! Even with the new line of books you're presenting... Love the book still!

The book did I good job as the 3rd book in the series. Jokes were good and story didn't overdo itself. However Jason's death, while very sad, didn't make a lot of sense to me. I think he deserves to still be alive.

OK, we’re finally starting to get a handle on Apollo and his multitude of issues. It is somewhat maddening to be put on hold between Book completions so it is pretty much a review of the previous book that needs to occur to allow me to start in again. That said, it is a Captivating Series and, for me, the Characters come to life with every page. As always, looking forward to the next book.

The Burning maze might be one of Rick Riordan's best work. Rick captures the reader with his writing & the "modern but mythological" that the books he writes. His stunning choice of actions he puts in his writing really makes the reaer want to read the book over & over. Can't wait for book 4: The Tyrant's Tomb

Too much narration type reading and reader references. No conclusions. With this book I did not finish wanting more.

I preordered this book months ago. The $14.99 charge is on my bank statement. The problem I'm having is it shows the book cover and says "preorder" at the bottom. When I click on the book it will allow me to archive it, share it, bookshelf it, yet I can't open the book at all. I look forward to any and all help you can provide! Thanks in advance, CrisTea
