Book Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan


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.

Another great book in the Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan. Everyone in my house loves this series. I laugh out loud during these books. The Battle of the Labyrinth is the 4th book in the series and did not disappoint.

I love how Riordan adds a fun twist to his book by adding elements of history, such as Harriet Tubman using the Labyrinth in her underground railroad operation. These books are just good clean family fun. As I’ve said before this is the way I like my mythology.

If you haven’t read this series you are missing out. I’m looking forward to the 5th & final book. Although I’ve already read the last few chapters. My daughter used The Last Olympian for a book report and ran out of time to get it finished so I read the last few chapters out loud to her. Even knowing the ending I’m looking forward to reading the entire story.
