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....

Critic Reviews

"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."

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.

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.

Fantastic

This book goes well beyond what I expected. Though it does have a dark twist and a few depressing bits, Apollo really takes them to heart. In the first book, he didn't really care about the demigod of either camp, but as time went on, he developed bonds with the characters.
If you love action, heartbreak and absolute failure, I suggest you get this book.

Entertaining

As an adult I've found many YA stories entertaining and Rick's books are no exception. I used to play a video game in the apple 2 as a kid that was a Greek good adventure writer and this reminds me of that. Fun.

Wow...

Another wonderful book, but I am just at a complete loss with the way that it turned. I mean I'm crying just crying. I just can't even right now, I'm so mad a Zeus.
