The Burning Maze (The Trials Of Apollo Book 3)




The third title in Rick Riordan's Trials of Apollo series - set in the world of Percy Jackson.

I was a god, once, until I was cast out by my father, Zeus.

Now I'm an awkward mortal teenager called Lester.

My way out? A series of scary and dangerous trials, of course.

For my third mission, I must:

Journey through the Labyrinth to free an Oracle who only speaks in puzzles. Which sounds easy. Then, defeat the most vicious of three very vicious Roman Emperors.

Is that all? No, I have to do everything without any of my godly powers. Wonderful. Looks like I'll need all the help I can get - from new friends, and old . . .

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.
