Author: Rick Riordan
I’m a little sad actually because I didn’t want to say goodbye to our hero, the one and only Percy Jackson.
From the beginning we can already see things are going to move quickly. Kronos has a lot of things up his sleeve and won’t let Percy and the other demigods have a break. The book pretty much starts off with a bang and doesn’t slow down from there. Annabeth and Percy’s relationship is kind of strained and Rachel showing up isn’t helping matters. I have to say all the books have a lot of action, but this one takes the prize. They have to make a movie of this one, it would be insanely cool. We finally get to see how the prophecy plays out, Luke’s past, and many other secrets that come to light.
One of things I always appreciated about the series is that we see things from all angles. We can get why some of the demigods would side with Kronos and how nobody is free from blame. Everybody and I mean everybody and their brother comes back in this book. It was fun to see some old faces and some unexpeceted heros emerge. I can’t pick a favorite book of the series but if forced to give an answer this one would be it. Filled with action, tough choices, betrayls, and heart, you can’t beat that.

I am thoroughly glad to say ‘Percy Jackson and The Battle of The Labyrinth’ lived up to my expectations and was a truly fine read!
Half-boy, half-God Percy Jackson starts off another school year by fighting off a pair of ‘Empousai’ and blowing up the school…again. He also runs into Rachel Elizabeth Dare, the mysterious mortal girl who can see through the mist.
It’s time to head back to camp Half-Blood, because trouble is brewing….huge, scary ‘the-GODS-are-angry’ kind of trouble. The ancient Lord Kronos is slowly reforming, aided by Luke and his unearthly army. Luke’s plan is to invade Camp Half-Blood, raze it to the ground along with it’s heroes and then head off to destroy the Olympians.
While the camp members felt that Camp Half-Blood was impenetrable…they soon realize that Luke intends to invade it through one of the exits of the famous underground Labyrinth. Percy and gang decide to head into the labyrinth themselves and discover Daedalus’s (the creator of the Labyrinth) workshop, so that they can find a way to stop the invasion.
Simple? Not Really! The Labyrinth is supposed to be the only piece of architecture that changes constantly. Even the creator Daedalus himself has no control over it. Tunnels changes…..new ones pop up…and backtracking is never a good option..because you never know what is in store for you…left, right, back or front. A person could enter the maze and never get out.
Add to that the constant threat of running into Luke’s demonic army and Percy has his job cut out!!
Is Percy doomed to roam the endless labyrinth? Will Grover finally find the lost GodPan? Will Annabeth’s faith in Luke lead to her downfall? And will the Gods survive to fight another day? All that and much more…..perfectly packaged in another superb instalment by Rick Riordan.
Percy Jackson, the prince of understatement is as quick with his trusted ‘Riptide’ as he is with the droll quips. A brave and comical hero, you’ll be rooting for him till the last page.
