Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan, read by Robbie Daymond. 

I was a god once. Until I was cast out by my father, Zeus. Now I'm an awkward mortal teenager called Lester.

My way out? A series of scary and dangerous trials, of course. For my third mission, I must: 

Journey through the Labyrinth to free an Oracle who speaks only in puzzles. 

Defeat a vicious and bloodthirsty Roman Emperor - the most vicious of three very vicious and bloodthirsty Roman Emperors. 

Is that all? No, I've to do everything without any of my godly powers. Wonderful. Looks like I'll be needing all the help I can get. From new friends and old....

Yet another enjoyable listen!

Love the narrator who embodies the voice of Apollo completely and the story is wonderful with all of the twists and turns and humour The previous book in the series was more enjoyable but this was still a great listen!

Brilliant stories, brilliant narration!

I love all of Rick Riordan's series on Audible so far. I'm impatient for new titles to come out, now I have caught up with everything he's written. The way he weaves ancient and modern themes together is fascinating. Rick Roirdan is a master of cliffhangers. Read them in the right order for maximum enjoyment, including the crossovers between worlds and systems. (His webpage tells you the right chronological sequence.)

Incredibly thrilling and very entertaining

The voices weren't great but overall it was tense and amazing. Also it was very funny like when apollo wets his pants in another dumpster. I LOLled many times and loved it.

I can’t wait for the next book!

Ever since is started reading Rick Riordan’s books i have loved them! Although this is by far the best! It is hilarious 😂 (as usual) and the story is amazing! The only thing you could improve is the different characters voices because at least for me it makes the characters have more personality. Apart from that the book is amazing and will definitely recommend it to you. I can’t wait for the next book!

Worth it

With many annoying moments and dialog that treats the listener like a very young child, I found it supprisingly good.
