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.

How long until book 4?

Robbie Daymond does a great job narrating these book. There is something for everyone. Puns that will go over the head of the kids and keep the adults in stitches. I love the self-deprecating Apollo who does the "right" thing inspite of himself.

What a great listen.

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.

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.

Fantastic Book!

I absolutely love Rick Riordan books and I am so happy they are on Audio. I waited a long time for this book and it didn't disappoint. If you have followed the story you must get this. The audio brings this story to life. Wasn't happy about the ending at all though but he does have the power to change it in the next book, right?

Best audio book ever!!!

This was the best book ever!!! I've been busy, and I haven't been able to read the book, but the speaker really did a great job. I Completely understood it, and it was great. If you haven't read any of the books by Rick Riordan on Modern Mythology, go get an audio book on one of those. You'll love it!
