Here comes the review of "The Burning Maze" (THE TRIALS OF APOLLO #3) by Rick Riordan. Let's get into it:

The Burning Maze is the 3rd book of the pentalogy: The Trials Of Apollo by Rick Riordan. In the 3rd part, With the help of some demigod friends, Lester Papadopoulos, the former Olympian "Apollo" who has been cast down to Earth by his father God Zeus as a part of the punishment, and is going through a lot of trials to regain his place in Mount Olympus, he managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg his Demigod Master received the Dark Prophecy. The words she uttered while seated on the Throne of Memory revealed that an evil triumvirate of Roman emperors plans to attack Camp Jupiter. While Leo one of the heroes who was present in "The Heroes Of Olympus" series also who helped Lester in Trials of Apollo #2: The Dark Prophecy, flies ahead on Festus a fire breathing dragon made by Leo itself to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor—and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles—somewhere in the American Southwest.

This is a very interesting book and has a lot of breathtaking scenes. By this book, we find Lester more as a mortal because the readers often forget he was a former olympian. In this book, there are a lot of unpredictable twists and turns, some of them for good while others for bad. Readers who have read "The Heroes Of Olympus" also get to know familiar heroes. I must say, this is a book that really helps the reader understand how serious the story is. Even though like all Rick Riordan Books it has a lot of humor elements, the seriousness is often bought back with a lot of flashbacks of many characters that are linked to the story. There are a lot of touching scenes in this book.

Therefore I must say this book is pretty much interesting and have a lot of unbelievable scenes. But, as I usually say, when you read these types of series, it is sometimes a must to read in the proper order. For this book, I will give 5 stars.

Hereby, I end the Review. If you liked it please comment on this post, also your honest suggestions about reviews! Can't wait to know!
