Author: Rick Riordan
Published: March 6th 2008
Length: 361 pages (Hardcover)
Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4
Synopsis from Goodreads:
When demonic cheerleaders invade his high school, Percy Jackson hurries to Camp Half Blood, from whence he and his demigod friends set out on a quest through the Labyrinth, while the war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near.
In The Battle of the Labyrinth, our brave and beloved gang goes under ground, risking both their own sanity and their lives in the labyrinth where Theseus once battled the Minotaur. Grover must find the great god Pan, or else he will be left with one less searcher’s license and a life in shame. Percy and Annabeth, too, has an important quest down in the maze. They need to find and try to convince the creator of the deceivious labyrinth, Daedalus, to help them in the battle against Kronos, but will they be too late? A lot is at stake here, and as usual, it’s up to our favourite heroes to save the world.
Dude, I don’t even know what to tell you. These just keeps getting better and better with every single book, and I’m so in love with the characters, the writing style and the humour. Honestly, I think I have already told you everything about this series I can without spoiling anything in my previous reviews, and all you really need to know about this book at this point, is that it didn’t disappoint in the least.
It had all that the other books had and more. It had excitement, a fair share of funny moments, friendship, a bit of jealousy, bravery, talking horses and lot more of the Greek mythology that makes this series so special. It simply can’t get much more entertaining than this.
I’m both very excited and anxious to read The Last Olympian, which I will start the moment I have posted this review. If I didn’t know there’s another series after this, I’m not sure what I would do. Cry, probably. Knowing myself, I will most likely do that anyway….
Ps. I actually missed Dionysus in this. Who would have thought…
A Small Selection of Quotes from This Lovely Peice of Literature:
“You deal with mythological stuff for a few years, you learn that paradises are usually places where you get killed.”
“Are you guys busy?” Juniper asked.
“Well,” I said, “we’re in the middle of this game against a bunch of monsters and we’re trying not to die.”
“We’re not busy,” Annabeth said.”
“Percy!” he bellowed. He dropped his broom and ran at me. If you’ve never been charged by an enthusiastic Cyclops wearing a flowered apron and rubber cleaning gloves, I’m telling you, it’ll wake you up quick.”
