Rick Riordan Summer of Magic & Mazes GIVEAWAY #ReadRiordan #TheBurningMaze #TrialsofApollo #KaneChronicles #DisneyHyperion

We are so thrilled to be partnering with Disney Hyperion to celebrate the Summer of Magic & Mazes, kicking off this summer with all-new Rick Riordan releases! New from Rick is The Trials of Apollo: THE BURNING MAZE. This is the third book in his Trials of Apollo series. We love the newly redesigned covers for THE KANE CHRONICLES. Trust us when we say you'll definitely want to enter to win this incredible prize pack (everything you see pictured above). 


The Burning Maze
The Trials of Apollo Book #3
In Stores May 1st

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.

Friends both familiar and new will emerge in The Burning Maze, Book Three of the New York Times #1 best-selling Trials of Apollo series, a twisty adventure featuring a hapless god who somehow still manages to think he's red-hot.

More about The Trials of Apollo series:

  • An Olympian Comes to Earth: The protagonist is nothing less than Apollo himself! Well, actually, he’s a mortal sixteen-year-old trying to earn his way back into Zeus’s favor by restoring five oracles. How will he manage without his godly powers?

  • A Godly POV: Apollo narrates the adventure; the disparity between his godly assumptions and his disappointing reality is hilarious.

  • Favorite Demigods Are Back! All of the beloved characters from Camp Half-Blood and Camp Jupiter will aid Apollo in his quest over the course of five books.

  • New Demigods Are Introduced, including Apollo’s sidekick, a twelve-year-old girl named Meg who is secretive about her past—and is Apollo’s secret weapon.

  • Viperous Villains will complicate matters for our heroes as they search for the ancient Oracles.
