The Burning Maze (The Trials Of Apollo Book 3)




The third title in Rick Riordan's Trials of Apollo series - set in the action-packed (and hilarious) world of Percy Jackson.

Lester Papadopoulos was once the glorious god Apollo, Now he's an awkward (mortal) teenager, stuck on earth without his powers. The way out? A series of scary and dangerous trials, of course.

With two particularly scary and dangerous trial already under his belt, Lester must now journey to the Labyrinth - a burning maze with an Oracle at its centre, who may just hold the key to a return to godly glory.

But The Labyrinth holds a far more deadly threat - the third Roman emperor, part of a group of three, all bent on death and destruction. The mortal and immortal worlds won't be safe whilst they live, and only Lester and his demigod friends have the power, bravery (and luck) to stop them . . .

About the Author

Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
