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.

Amazing

In quarantine I’ve revisited the Percy Jackson series, Heroes of Olympus, listened to the Magnus Chase series, the Kane chronicles, and moved onto this. Every single one has been brilliant, and this has been no exception. It’s really gripping, and I can’t wait for the Tower of Nero to come out. 😌
I hadn’t liked the narrator very much in this book, but the story kept me going through

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

Best book in the series so far

Once again the Reader did an excellent job and really brought the story to life. (Seriously, pay the man well, Audible)
The story is probably the darkest so far but still has room for comedy that always hits the right note. This is my new favourite book in the series.

Really enjoying this series.

I thi
think I may be enjoying this series more than the percy Jackson and the new propercey series I love Apollo/Lester P and meg I am finding very funny and don't remember laughing so much on percy Jackson 2 series, though it covers more horrors and a load of nasty monsters it still managed to stay light hearted, will be sorry when the series ends.

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!
