Description from Goodreads:
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 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 the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth – a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.
The Battle of the Labyrinth is another great book in the Percy Jackson series! I don’t know that I liked it quite as much as The Titan’s Curse, but it was still really good! The introduction of Rachel Dare and the Labyrinth made for really exciting reading! I loved all the twists and turns and unexpected dangers that occurred in the Labyrinth, but the battle at the end was probably the best part! It was really exciting to see things getting real and the war starting to heat up.
The Labyrinth itself is such a scary thing that it really added a lot of tension to the story line. An almost living maze that confuses people, tricks them, drives them insane? How does that not sound intense? Add to that that Kronos’ army is actively trying to invade Camp Half-Blood, and Percy and his friends are facing a lot of challenges! There is a lot of tension in The Battle of the Labyrinth!
The last chapter introduced a couple of surprises and some really great set-ups for the final book in the series! I would highly recommend The Battle of the Labyrinth, and I’m very excited to reread the final book! I was left with so many questions after The Battle of the Labyrinth that it’ll be really great to see what happens and how things wrap up! (Honestly, I don’t remember at all!)
