Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Lester Papadopoulos was once the glorious god Apollo, Now he's an awkward (mortal) teenager, stuck on earth without his powers. The way out? A series of scary and dangerous trials, of course.

With two particularly scary and dangerous trial already under his belt, Lester must now journey to the Labyrinth - a burning maze with an Oracle at its centre, who may just hold the key to a return to godly glory.

But The Labyrinth holds a far more deadly threat - the third Roman emperor, part of a group of three, all bent on death and destruction. The mortal and immortal worlds won't be safe whilst they live, and only Lester and his demigod friends have the power, bravery (and luck) to stop them . . .

Sequel to: The dark prophecy.

Booklist Review

Apollo, 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
