On Order

Summary

Summary

The formerly glorious god Apollo, cast down to earth in punishment by Zeus, is now an awkward mortal teenager named Lester Papadopoulos. In order to regain his place on Mount Olympus, Lester must restore five Oracles that have gone dark. But he has to achieve this impossible task without having any godly powers and while being duty-bound to a confounding young daughter of Demeter named Meg. Thanks a lot, Dad.
With the help of some demigod friends, Lester managed to survive his first two trials, one at Camp Half-Blood, and one in Indianapolis, where Meg 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 flies ahead on Festus to warn the Roman camp, Lester and Meg must go through the Labyrinth to find the third emperor--and an Oracle who speaks in word puzzles--somewhere in the American Southwest. There is one glimmer of hope in the gloom-filled prophecy: The cloven guide alone the way does know. They will have a satyr companion, and Meg knows just who to call upon. . . .

Horn Book Review

Temporarily mortal Apollo and demigod Meg team up with Piper and Jason (from Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series) to rescue Herophile the Sibyl from a burning labyrinth under Los Angeles. Meanwhile, sorceress Medea wants to extract Apollo's godly essence to turn the emperor Caligula into a new sun god. High-stakes action and trademark humor remain, but many sacrifices lead this third entry into somber territory. (c) Copyright 2019.

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
