The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson & The Olympians #4) 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.”
Once again, seriously, read this series. A fast read, even at over three hundred pages. It’s one of those un-put-down-able books. You just want to know what happens next. Even though I’ve read it four times, I always read it like I don’t know what happens next. Riordan just makes his stories that exciting. Riordan is a great author and his characters are likeable kids (the good guys are anyway). I love the way he uses his books to teach kids about mythology, whether that was ever his intention or not, his books are educational as well as entertaining.
