Overview

The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #4) by Rick Riordan

As an incoming freshman, Percy isn't expecting his high school orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to worse.

In this fourth 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 will 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.

Okay, I'm probably older than the age group roughly focused on for these books, but I love them! The characters are so funny, and charming, and remind you of someone you know. I thought this book was a fantastic addition to the collection, and perhaps the best so far. I loved all the crazy places the Labyrinth took them. I also thought it was really cool that Rachel, a mortal girl, got to have such a big part helping them. Percy and Annabeth are still on the fritz, but they'll come through. I also think it was great how many other, lesser-known, Greek myths were brought up in this book. I used to study those like crazy back in high school, and this author really knows his stuff. Better yet, he can take ancient myths and put a humorous modern-day spin on them. This book is definitely a winner!

Kronos is stirring, Luke is evil, and another problem has accured. Percy hasn't even started school, and is already accused of burning down the band room thanks to the evil, monster, cheerleaders. But thanks to a new friend, Rachel, Percy is safe--for now. An entry to the Labyrinth has been discovered in the heart of camp! Well thats a bad thing. Because the Labyrinth is a big moving, growing, maze, created by one of the best architects in the world. And if Luke and his army discover it, they have passage into the Camp! Yikes. Annabeth has been chosen to lead this quest to find the architect and find a way to stop Luke. She asks Percy, Tyson, and Grover to come along. Now a lot of you are going, "A maze, big deal." But this is no ordinary maze. Like the Uderworld there are entries all over the world. It also moves on its own. one minute your walking strait, then next the tunnels move and your facing a dead end, completely confused. The only way to get tto the heart of the maze is to have a guid. A mortal guid. Rachel! Will they make it before Luke?? Will they get hoplessly lost??

The adventure of Percy Jackson continues! Riordan goes further into Greek Mythology- with his own special twist- than ever before! Despite the serious tone, the dialogue still evokes those laugh out loud moments that made the others so endearing.

The Percy Jackson series is fun and captivating and this 4th installment doesn't let you down. I liken it to the Harry Potter series, if you enjoyed books 1-3, then you know you have to read the 4th - it won't let you down. I couldn't wait for it to go into paperback and it was worth the extra money for a hardback copy. I don't know if the author is planning to write more, but I will be the first to pick them up as they come out.

Each book in the Percy Jackson series keeps getting better and better! I can't think of any young teenage boy (or girl) that wouldn't enjoy this series. You definitely need to start with the first book in the series and read them in order. Some knowledge of Greek mythology makes the humor more accessible but the books are great adventure stories even without that knowledge. A great read!

This book should be on billboards! The story makes sence a lot and its one of those books that FILL your imagination. Readers who are between 9 and 14 will give this a thumbs up. This is one of the greatest books ( in the series) you can get.

This book was full of adventure and action. It never gets boring. It has good description of the characters. The Battle of the Labyrinth is the best book of this series, because it has the most action. This book also teaches you about Greek history in a fun way.

Percy Jackson's fourth summer at camp Half-Blood is a lot like the first three; he fights monsters, prevents a momentous war, and saves the world with his friends. In Rick Rioradan's thrilling series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, fantasy gets woven into reality so intricately that it makes you start believing in Greek gods and half-bloods yourself. The fourth installment called The Battle of the Labyrinth is both funny and exciting. His complicated relationship with Annabeth Chase, the many betrayals as some kids at camp join the enemy and his best friend, Grover's search for the truth about the lost god Pan all get a prominent part in this book, so it's not all about action and battle. In this imaginative novel, Percy and his friends are forced to go into a magical maze to prevent their enemies from invading their camp for people who are half-bloods, which means one of their parents is a Greek god and the other is human. Percy's enemy was planning to capture the camp and then take over Olympus through an underground maze called the Labyrinth. But, the Labyrinth is magical. It changes, tricks people, and has deadly traps. The Battle of the Labyrinth's adventure-seeking readers won't be able to wait for the next magical, slighty educational and altogether thrilling book.

I'm 42 years old and have always loved mythology. I found the first book by accident, looking for interesting books for my son - then 10 to read. I couldn't put the book down and we now fight over who's going to read book 4 first. Action packed, exciting, creative storyline and plot. Great characters. I love the way Rick Riordon blends mythology w/ modern day life and teens. Would recommend for both boy and girls of all ages...even parents!

This book in the series just didn't have the same pull as the first 3 did. The story lost me a little. I think I expected more action while they were in the labyrinth. But at times, I felt like the story was going in circles. There are parts that I really liked. The story of the labyrinth and it's place in the modern world was extremely interesting. I loved that an actual human plays such an intricate part of the story. I think the story weaving was better in this one. It's starts to connect everything together and sets up for the final book. Although this one made me curious what part the gods would actually play in the final battle. They seem to interfere (or help) and the strangest times and I'm not sure what they actually want out of the demigods. I still think the author does a fantastic job of weaving Greek mythology into the story. It reminds me how much I love mythology.

Great books. I love the books-THEYRE AWESOME! IF YOU DONT LIKE THESE BOOKS YOUR CRAZY (not in a good way)

I really can't say much more then I have written in the other reviews. Percy is challenged in some pretty scarey places and he always holds on to faith and hope. These are really a good set for both boys and girls because their are girl hero's in the story to. The things they do help Percy in his quests and making his decisions.
