The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze

By Rick Riordan


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. Defeat a vicious and bloodthirsty Roman Emperor – the most vicious of three very vicious and bloodthirsty Roman Emperors. Is that all? No, I’ve to do everything without any of my godly powers. Wonderful. Looks like I’ll be needing all the help I can get. From new friends, and old . . .

This edition includes a Percy Jackson short story!

Clarisse, daughter of Ares, the Greek god of war, needs Percy Jackson’s help. Her father’s chariot has been stolen and she has to get it back by sunset. The only hitch? The chariot-jackers are none other than her terrifying immortal brothers Phobos and Deimos. Can Percy and Clarisse get the chariot back before it’s too late?
