Publisher's Summary

Book three in the number-one New York Times best-selling Trials of Apollo series

The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.

With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor - and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles - somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon....

What the critics say

"Just as he has been for the previous two audiobooks in Riordan's Trials of Apollo series, narrator Robbie Daymond is wholly in sync with Apollo's voice.... Daymond creates individual voices for the large cast of supporting characters, including satyr guide Grover, demigod Meg, and dryad Aloe, and listeners will find it hard to press pause as he delivers every twist and turn in Apollo's continuing adventures."

Wow!

Good book, really good story, though I give fair warning that there is a very dark plot twist not all would enjoy.

Monotonous

I dont know if it's the story or performer, and I know it's a single pov, but the book and series portion is very slow. all characters seem the same.

My son loves it, but I can't pay attention. We've listened to every myth series available by Riordan, and this is the only one I legitimately dislike.

Another great chapter in the series!

Love how he's been handing Apollo's character. Meg is wonderful as usual. Lots of cameos from the other series. Riordan continues to write interesting and engaging characters.

Not Sure How I Feel!

First off I liked the story but there was a drastic change in this installment. Book was much darker than I was expecting not that it was a bad thing but I did cry several times and that’s what has me feeling lost. Still I will be eagerly awaiting the next book. Oh yes and Apollo is still whiny but he is growing up.

Where’s the fun?

I have read every book in the series, starting way back when with Percy Jackson. This one was a letdown. It dragged on and on. Apollo whined more and more. And the two significant deaths still depressed me. Not the enjoying read that I expect from Rick Riordan. The best parts were the clever chapter titles, and the narration.

This book gets a bit real.

Readers beware this story gets a bit real and has some actual consequences to Apollo's choices. Pretty decent story.

Wow.

These just keep getting better. I wasn't really into the first one but thought I would give the second a try. It was loads better than the first book. Could not wait to listen to this one and I must say is one of my Favorite books by Rick. Chomping at the bit till 9/24 gets here for the next one.

Amazing and heartbreaking

This story has once again reduced me to an emotional wreck. Robbie Daymonds performance is uncanny and truly brings these characters to life. As a hardcore Riordan fan, this book is one of his most if not the most addictive, gripping and emotionally shattering of his many works. This book brings the series into darker waters with more mature concepts, but fear not, it is worth every second and every page. 5 stars 💔
