The Battle of the Labyrinth

The Fourth book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

Description: Percy Jackson isn’t expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to diabolical. In this latest installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos’s army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop them, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth-a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn. Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this fourth book promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

I don’t understand why his mother keeps trying to send him to new schools… that shit obviously isn’t working out. Just fucking give up already. Seriously, he’s half human and half god, he’s fine without going school… I’m still struggling with this series, it’s the second last book and this one still feels so bizarre and too all over the place, things tend to build up and then just kinda suck when we get to the “climax” waiting for this epic battle only to have 3 pages of said battle, and to have it all ended by a yell/shout whatever you want to call it.. and then no retaliation and no other issues for the rest of the book. In the first three books and even half of this book grover is searching for pan and then all of a sudden (again very randomly and out of nowhere) that happens and it was such a let down of like, alright well thanks…k, bye pan. That’s over now… It’s.. just so random and so odd the way these books tend to work. And I feel like the build ups never deliver a proper punch. I’m not a huge fan still, overall I do believe kids would love these books and I do like the Greek stuff but i just don’t love the story yet. But I’ve come this far.. so I guess let’s see how it ends…

I rate this book

6/10

HAVE A FAMTABULOTASTIC DAY
