The Greek god Apollo, cast down to earth as the ungifted human teenager Lester Papadopoulos, and his demigod friends must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor--and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles--somewhere in the American Southwest.
The Greek god Apollo is still in the persona of ungifted human teenager Lester Papadopoulos. Now Lester and his demigod friends must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor-- and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles-- somewhere in the American Southwest. But the longer he stays mortal, the weaker he grows... and the less confident that he will be able to regain his place on Mount Olympus.

This is the fast-paced and action-packed 3rd installment in the Trials of Apollo series. Fans of Rick Riordan's other mythology-based books are sure to enjoy it even with a couple of heart-wrenching moments.

This book was okay. It definantly wasn't as good as the Heros of Olympus series, but I'm glad that the brought back old characters. I was VERY mad at Uncle Rick for the character that he killed. Unlike most people, they were one of my favorites. I hope they come back to life some how...

It is a good book
The Greek god Apollo, cast down to earth as the ungifted human teenager Lester Papadopoulos, and his demigod friends must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor--and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles--somewhere in the American Southwestpollo, Meg, and Grover find themselves in the smoldering ruins of Palm Springs in this third installment in Riordan's popular Trials of Apollo series. Fires and drought are putting the dryads in danger, and Apollo knows that the only way to restore the rightful order is to free the oracle hidden below ground in a dangerous labyrinth. As the stakes get higher and Apollo experiences loss and sacrifice firsthand, the god loses some of his trademark braggadocio and begins to suspect his punishment losing his godly powers to walk the earth as a chubby human teen is more than just a product of Zeus' short temper. Meanwhile, Meg begins to uncover some important secrets from her past. Of course, this is Riordan, so there's plenty of snarky banter and comedy mixed in among the drama. Amid the cinematic pacing and well-choreographed action scenes, Riordan squeezes in plenty of character development into the expanding cast of characters, even minor ones who don't get a lot of page space. Riordan's fans will appreciate seeing some familiar faces in this puzzle-filled installment, and a cliff-hanger ending will make them eager for the sequel.--Sarah Hunter Copyright 2018 Booklist

I love how Rick includes old characters in this series. It also gives a sense of nostalgia for those who have been a fan for many years. This series keeps making the reader flip to the next page because the writing is very capturing.

The book went way beyond my expectations, and I absolutely loved this book. The Burning Maze will tear your heart apart with joy, sorrow, and anticipation, I couldn't put this book down. For most of us Riordan fans, we were devastated by a tragedy that occurred during the book, and ... ;(

This book was a great addition to the Trials of Apollo series. It had many unexpected twists, and the characters were well built. The book made you feel like you were going on the same adventure with them. The book was interesting, and had you laughing at every page. Overall, it was a great book!

"The creator's daughter has spoken!" cried a Melia.
"Daughter of two creators!" said another.
"Twice blessed!"
"Wise solver of puzzles!"
"The Meg!"
That left the last two with little to add, so they muttered, "Yep. The Meg. Yep."

Power makes good people uneasy rather than joyful or boastful. That's why good people so rarely rise to power.
