Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Tyrant's Tomb by Rick Riordan.  

You will get to the Tiber alive. You will start to Jive.  

The former God Apollo is having a pretty rough time of it. Well, for one thing, he's called Lester. But being an awkward mortal teenager is the least of his worries.  

Though he and his friends (some of them) have emerged from the Burning Maze, they still have a triumvirate to defeat, oracles to rescue and prophecies to decipher so that the world may be saved, and Lester can become Apollo once again.  

But right now, Caligula is sailing to San Francisco to deal with Camp Jupiter personally, and they have to get their first. Or risk its destruction.....

Rick Riordan never disappoints

Rick Riordan never disappoints! He is my 'J. K. Rowling' so to speak, having grown up with his books and after waiting over a year for this book and I listened to it all within 24 hours of buying it. Rick has an absolute talent for mixing humor and seriousness without either being overwhelming. I love that Apollo has embraced his humanity and realized that he wasn't as perfect as he thought when he was a God. He has truly changed for the better and I can only hope when the series comes to an end he truly will remember what it's like to be human. I await The Tower of Nero anxiously! I'll just have to reread the other series from start to finish again.

As good as it is, I feel it’s just ok

It’s fun to listen to and enjoyable but it’s not enough to say it’s one of my favourites, I want better pacing and would like more from Lavinia but overall it’s fun and nice to listen to

These are the best books I have ever read

Ever since I started with the Percy Jackson books I have always loved Greek mythology ,to the know that there were more books to add to the story I exploded with joy but the trials of Apollo books are my favourite and this book was wonderful i one day wish I could meet rick riordan in real life but nevertheless keep making these books and keep making us laugh thank you.

Yayyy~

Robbie Daymond makes this story come alive. Rick Riordan is as amazing and funny as always. What more can we ask for? Although (spoiler alert?) Frank almost scared me to death.
I’m looking forward to the next book!
