In The Battle of the Labyrinth, Percy Jackson encounters a whole new set of enemies (of course) as well as a few new allies. While you still know that the worst is yet to come (one book left!), this is a great installment. We explore that famous maze, find things that are lost, feel betrayed, and even have a chance to forgive someone who may or may not deserve it.
I do love these books. The integration of Greek mythology with scenes and characters from The Odyssey and modern-day places is just a really interesting combination. Percy is so … male. He’s definitely more of a teenager in this one, and his lack of romantic know-how is endearing. I’m a fan of this series, that’s for sure.
Rated: None. But the phrase “oh my gods” is used.
