The Burning Maze
The Burning Maze | Rick Riordan
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.

My daughter has discovered Rick Riordan, which is amazing! She takes the dust jacket off our books and leaves fingerprints, which is not so awesome, but I love these reminders of how much she is loving the world Riordan creates. I love it too- this was better than the second Apollo book.

Worst part of finishing a book in a series. Oh well, fall 2019 isn't that far off anyway...

I would be Apollo
I would remember”

It‘s not you, Apollo/Mr. Riordan, it‘s me. You see, there are two more books yet unreleased in this series and I don‘t have it in me to read this book only to have to WAIT, so it‘s back on the #TBR until the series is fully published and I can read the rest all in one go. See ya in a few years, buddy. (And I really can‘t wait for my Little Bug to meet you in a decade or so!)

Why does Rick have to write such heartwrenching books. This one threw me for a loop emotionally.

Finally finished this! For some reason this didn‘t really grab me at any point. Maybe because I mostly kept thinking about what a nightmare it would be to translate😂 But I‘m looking forward to the next part! #occupationalhazards

I started reading The Burning Maze to get a little more time on the clock and I‘m proud to say that for my first #24in48 I read for 14 hours! I started to lose some steam in the afternoon and the last half hour to 14 was the longest half an hour ever but I made it and now I can get some much needed sleep!

Librarybelle Great job! 5mo

1. Read minds!!! 2. Done 3. So many. Started a meditation class. Doing a lot of habit changing. Hopefully I‘ll get past week two of February. That‘s when everyone abandons ship apparently. 4. Movie mostly but been meaning to start Riverdale. #friyayintro @howjessreads

Oh my goodness! I could not stop listening to this #audiobook! I had it playing while I was shelving library books, cleaning, cooking, etc. I just had to see how it ended! While I wasn‘t thrilled by the fate of a character, there was well executed build up to what happened. Honestly, everything that happens in the book was excellently built up to. This might be my favorite book in this series!

In this third installment of The Trials of Apollo, god-turned-mortal Apollo has to shut down a burning maze that‘s destroying Southern California and rescue another oracle from the grip of the Triumvirate, three resurrected Roman emperors who want to—what else?—take over the world. Although there are plenty of humorous quips here and Percy Jackson‘s best friend Grover returns (yay!), there is tragedy, too. But Apollo learns more humility, so 👍.

With a few exceptions I was not wowed by the previous entry in this series. This one was far more captivating.
There is a massive plot event in this book that will leave you staggered. Even though the author warned you it would happen, it made it no easier to bare.

I should do some laundry but after a morning workout and an hour pool side I‘m feeling too relaxed to move. Reading the latest Riordan which dives right into the action. Apollo is a lot more likable as a pimply red headed human. Lol. #dogsoflitsy #25infive

I‘m very excited to be diving into this book. I‘ve been reading Rick Riordan‘s Greek/Roman books for almost 10 years now. I adore this newest series with Apollo who is a very unique character. I‘m eager to see where Lester (aka Apollo) and Meg take me this time.

I think I‘m going to DNF this... I think at this point I‘m over Riordan‘s books, the first few series were enjoyable but after so many I can‘t get into them. :(

Brief departure from “Bee Larkham” because this is due tomorrow and has a hold on it. (AKA: the story of my life, someone really needs to teach me self-control.) #thetrialsofapollo #theburningmaze #rickriordan

I really liked this book. I am a huge fan of Riordan's books. I love all he writes but I didn't love The Trials of Apollo at first. I didn't like Apollo and his personality as a human. So the first book was not THAT good for me... though I really enjoyed the second one and I *loved* this one. The Burning Maze has broken my heart and I need the next book ASAP!

Aurys Great review! I‘m really excited to read this one- and now I‘m even more excited ^_^ 13mo

Glad Litsy‘s back up!! :) I missed all of you Littens!

I‘m currently on vacation... and what‘s the first thing I do? Find the nearest Barnes & Noble! XD I bought a couple sequels I‘ve been waiting to read.

@Elisa I can start that buddy read now ;)

Elisa Aaah I‘m in the middle of Glass Sword! Well 1/3 through 😬 I can work on finishing by next weekend, if you feel like waiting one week — if not I understand! I have been very excited about books and unable to hold back 😅 13mo
Aurys @Elisa I can absolutely wait! I‘m reading a couple right now as well, so that week will give me some time to finish mine as well ^^;; 13mo

I'm trying to read this book but Rick Riordan's writing had gotten quite insufferable in this book. He tries to keep up with Apollo being vain but takes it too far and tries to combine that with the humour in Percy Jackson which just didn't work. It feels like it's dragging on and on.

When you find yourself in the middle of two good series at once... it's hard to determine which one to spend time reading.

I kind of loved this book. While Rick Riordan is one of my insta-buy authors this is by far my least favorite series. I like Meg, and I love revisiting my favorite demi-gods.... I could not like Apollo/ Lester. He had no talents and complained a lot. I mean a lot. It was tiresome having everyone save his butt and he didn't seem to get it at all. In the second book he began to show personal growth, respect. Here it's even better. 4 ☆

Wait, what?! Now I'll have to wait more than one year for the next part? 😭💔

I don't know how to survive this. Granted, I haven't yet read the Kane Chronicles or the Magnus Chase books. But those will only get me through a few days of Rick Riordan deprivation...

jfalkens I might wait a while then to read book 3, especially if book 4 isn't due for a year and a half!! 14mo

mrsmarch I usually like Riordan but wasn‘t as hooked by his Norse series. Is this series on par with the Greek and Roman ones? 1y
LibrarianRyan @mrsmarch don't know. Haven't read it yet. Maybe someone else can tell us. 1y
BookHoarder32 It's a continuation of the Heroes of Olympus series starring Apollo. I mean it takes place after that (they reference a big battle that happened) but it's separate. I haven't finished that series yet, but still enjoy this one. (edited) 1y

NovelGirl82 I've really enjoyed this one! We get to see some of our favorites from PJO/HOO with some new characters thrown in. New storyline, but feels very familiar (in a good, not boring way). 1y
LibrarianRyan @BookHoarder32 cool thanks. I was so disappointed in the Last PJ and Red Pyramid that I hadn't picked up the next series. But I've begun holding them for a binge. 1y
nerdyartemis @LibrarianRyan thank you for posting some YA fantasy most stuff on litsy is too esoteric for me😂. 1y
