The Trials of Apollo #3: The Burning Maze

Think being the sun god is all sweetness and light? Myth master Rick Riordan says NOPE! In fact, Apollo must have done something to really upset Rick, because in this series he’s been cast down to Earth in the body of a dorky mortal boy. Okay, okay. It’s not really Rick Riordan’s fault that Apollo ticked off his father Zeus, and got stripped of his godhood as a punishment. The big question is: what now? Staying as Lester – his human self – is a fate worse than death. Trouble is, the only escape route involves a series of seriously scary trials. Like journeying through a labyrinth to free an Oracle who only speaks in riddles. And defeating a bloodthirsty Roman emperor. And doing it all without using any godly powers…

  • The brilliant new series from myth master Rick Riordan
  • Rick is the hugely acclaimed creator of Percy Jackson
  • A return to Camp Half Blood with a hilarious new hero
  • Bursting with humour, adventure and Greek mythology
