Percy Jackson isn’t expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears at his potential new school, 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.
5 out of 5 stars
Percy Jackson is a series I wish I would have read earlier, because I’ve had SO MUCH FUN reading them. Middle grade is my favorite genre as of late because you just get to go on an adventure with cool middle school/high school students. Oh my gosh it’s great.
This has been my favorite of the series so far; I loved reading about when they were in the Labyrinth. Also, it helps that I know some about Greek mythology because Riordan did such an amazing job writing the characters. I love meeting the new characters and knowing the stories behind them. It’s pretty sweet.
We had our first real Percabeth moment in this book. *heart eye emoji*
I fricking love Percy and Annabeth together. They’re both such strong characters and when you put them together they’re absolutely perfect and beautiful. Rachel just needs to leave the story because Percabeth has finally sprouted.
One of my favorite parts from this book was when they were in the Labyrinth and they found Pan for Grover. It was so magical and it just made Grover a much more important character in the story. I thought it was so sweet and was really a “growing up” moment for all the main characters.
If you haven’t read this series you really need to. I started reading the final book right after I finished this one, and I can’t wait to see how it ends. I am so excited to read all of Rick Riordan’s books!
