The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book Four)

by Rick Riordan

Rated: None

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.

Corinne Edwards is always happiest when a book is in her hand. If her current read needs to be closed for a short time, either in her backpack while she leads her three rambunctious children on adventures, or on her nightstand while she sleeps, that's okay too. Her book thoughts and reviews land at her bookish blog, The Book Nest.
