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.


Wow. This is by far my favorite book out of the series. There were so many mysteries and plot twists in this book that it made my fly through the book in one day. I just love the different mythological stories especially Calypso’s story. Also, I think this is the MOST action packed book so far which made it a fast read. Not only was it filled with battles and adventures, but it also has fantastic humor that’ll leave you laughing out loud… literally.

I love love love the characters. Some characters might seem irrelevant at first, like a by-passer, but trust me, all the characters in this book has a purpose and I LOVE THAT. I love how they are not just some random characters thrown into the book. Although Percy and Annabeth are in their early teens, I think they’re beginning to mature. Also, I see a romance sprouting ;). I’m really glad the author isn’t rushing the romance or else that’ll be a big turnoff in my opinion. I also love Tyson and Grover. They were so funny in this book that I couldn’t help but giggle. At first, I really hated Dionysus, but I grew to love him in this installment because I finally understand his character. That’s just how he is, and no matter how snarky he seems, he’s awesome and hilarious.

I also loved how this book takes place in the Labyrinth. There were so many secrets and creepy passages in there that it left me intrigued and wanting to read more. Overall this is a must read if you love fantasy or if you’re looking for a fast paced read. I think everyone should read the Percy Jackson series no matter what your age is because it’ll appeal to all readers.

    Completely agree about this one, out of all the Percy Jackson books I’ve read so far this is probably the most memorable for me because of the action. The Labyrinth was super interesting, and haha, I didn’t like Dionysus at first either.

    This was probably my favourite one out of the entire series. There was just so much action and battles you couldn’t forget. And you could see the start of Percabeth forming. Another reason why I love Percy Jackson: the love grows gradually, which is something not many authors do nowadays. :/

I read this book 4 years ago, and though i might have (slightly) forgotten what happened in the book, I do remember enjoying this book so much because of the plot twists and character development. This was one of my favorite childhood books, and I’m really happy to hear you really enjoyed it too! ❤ Great review Leigh!!!
