Burning Maze, The-Trials of Apollo, The Book Three by Rick Riordan

Burning Maze, The-Trials of Apollo, The Book Three (Trials of Apollo, #3)

by Rick Riordan

The third book in the latest series from international bestselling author, Rick Riordan

He was a God once. Until he was cast out his father, Zeus. Now, he's an awkward teenager.

Called Lester.

The only way out is a series of scary and dangerous trials, of course.

For his third trial, Apollo must journey through the Labyrinth to free an Oracle who only speaks in puzzles.

Then, defeat the most vicious of three very vicious Roman Emperors.

(All without the use of his godly powers.)

It looks like he will need all the help he can get - from some new and old friends.

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?

Find out in, Percy Jackson and the Stolen Chariot

I always enjoy Riordans books, I started the Percy Jackson Series years ago and don't seem able to stop. Normally with this kind of series they tend to get worse and it seems like the author just draggs them along because they are a good selling series *cough* shadow hunter *cough*, but Rick Riordan seems to be able to put out a really good book again and again and it's always something new and exciting and entertaining.

Now I have to admit, I wasn't the biggest fan of the Trials of Apollo Series at the beginning, because while I enjoyed the humor of Apollo's character at the beginning he tended to get a bit annoying over time, and he learned soooo slow! But he really developed nicely in this book, whilst keeping his more charming and funny side. I would not be against seeing him be more usefull instead of him being pretty much dead weight, which he is in my opinion starting to be in this book (more usefull, not more dead weight).

The story was really good, entertaning and with a lot of suspense. And a LOT of Drama! how! can! you! let! Jason! die!! I was heartbroken about Jason and Piper breaking up, but the way both talked about it, I saw a possibility of them getting back together when Piper got her life and everything sorted out, and then he dies! That is just not okay! So, I'm hoping that he can somehow come back to life in the next book, which I am going to buy as soon as possible.

So, to sum it up, really great book and a worthy follow up in the whole series.
