The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4)
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...more
So as expected Percy's summer is going to be filled with another quest and yet another colossal problem that brings him closer to the prophecy...more
Half-boy, half-God Percy Jackson starts off the new school year by battling a pair of ‘ Empousai ’ and blowing up his school. Again. He also runs into Rachel Elizabeth Dare, the mysterious mortal girl who can see through the mist.
It’s time to head back to Camp Half-Blood, because trouble...more
This is my favorite of the series so far. It was slightly less funny in this ones but its totally made up for by all the action and gods and characters. I mean gosh, there are a lot more gods, monsters, and heroes than I gave mythology credit for.
We see Percy come out and act like a real true blue hero thoug...more
I really powered through the last couple books in this series. This time around, I wanted to slow down a bit. So, I alternated between this book and a collection of Greek mythology. I was happy I did because in The Battle of the Labyrinth Percy, Annabeth, Tyson, and Grover have to deal with sever...more
Percy did grow up a lot in this book. He is no longer the twelve year old we met in the first book. Now he has grown and veiws the world differntly. And the things that happen in this book change him a bit as well.
Annabeth and Percy's relationship definatly complicates and grows. This was proabably the most Percabeth we've seen so far in these...more
I definitely felt like Percy was growing up in this book and felt the flavor of the book matched that - a little more detailed and a little less clear on those 'black-and-white' lines. Things are still building for the "finale" and I'm really cu...more
I really love Percy Jackson and the Olympians, probably even more than the kids. As I have said before, they are even better read-a-louds, to my elementary age children, than the Potter series. The dialogue is rich (work on your many voices) and just about any page is a great stopping point because there are so many cliff hanging action moments. Nothing is ever slow in this series.
Probably the best thing about Percy Jackson in the Oly...more
In one of the reviews I read of one of the volumes in this series by someone who gave it 5 stars the reviewer opened by observing that they knew little about Greek myth...but like the story.
Okay, I'll try to take "that attitude". Allow me though first to add a but....But, if a book or series of bo...more
*original review: AMAZING!!! I LOVED IT!!! I'm always glad to see a series that can keep itself going without the author running out of ideas. Like the three books that come before it, The Battle of the Labyrinth is exciting, funny, and overall very enjoyable. I also love its strong characters. Fans of the series will NOT be disappointed :D
The dead, the traitor, and the lost one raise.
You shall rise or fall by the ghost king's hand,
The Child of Athena's final stand.
Destroy with a hero's final breath,
And lose a love to worse than death.
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 n...more
The series (there are 4 books in total) is about a boy named Percy who is a trouble-finder, because he does not like to start trouble but always finds away to get himself into it, that is told by his mother he is a Demigod, a half god half mortal bein...more
The mark of Daedalus is a mark that represents the entrance to the Labyrinth. Daedalus was a skillful craftsman and artisan. He was also an inventor, architect and a genius who created the Labyrinth, a maze built for King Minos and it traps the Minotaur. Daedalus is one of the major characters in this book and his Labyrinth served as the central plot element.
"I left him in his wheelchair, staring sadly into the fireplace. I wondered how many times he'd sat there, waiting for heroes that never came back"(231).
And also: I NEED MORE PERCABETH. GODDAMMIT RICK RIORDAN.
Also, the fact that Percy is now the same age as me by the end of this book really hit me hard. He was 12, like, just two weeks ago. Heartbreak.
Oh and lastly, (vi...more
In general, I don't like how these books are written so casually... and first person in general feels "cheat-y" .. but then it's also good for giving us observations without giving things away.. if only percy weren't so dense at times. hahah.
but I like how everything is so carefully knit together; kind of like an easier version of a detective novel, where the more knowledge you know, the easier...more
Lamento ofrecerte mi corazón en piezas, pero eso es por tu causa. Ese "y sí..." simplemente me ha desmembrado el alma.
Qué les digo, otro libro genial. Cada vez son mejores, el crecimiento de Percy me obsesiona porque increíblemente su agradable sentido del humor perdura.
Fue genial ver a casi todos crecer un poco y lograr sus objetivos. Vale, ese "casi" debe ser explicado.
Soy fan del estancamiento de Annabeth, fue maravillosamente doloroso leer cóm...more
In this novel we join Percy on yet another quest, he must find his way to the maker of the Labyrinth (a massive underground expanse of tunneling maze) and convince him to side with the gods of Olympus rather than the side of the evil Titans.
The story begins with Percy discovering an entrance to the Labyrinth created by Daedalus. The only complication for Percy and his fellow campers is that the entrance is situated right inside the b...more
Eeeeee! Love, love, love . And just the sort of read I needed right now. Doubts about whether I’m just a bit too old to get the full enjoyment from these books officially over. I think I might even like this one more than Sea of Monsters and I am definitely, definitely, looking forward to seeing how the final confrontation will go down in the next book.
Battle of the Labyrinth answered (or at least addressed) a lot of my little niggles about the series – we saw adult half-bloods, Percy had...more
HOLY. COW. MOOOOO! WTH. My mind's totally blown. I know it's not yet the EPIC battle. But crap! I was speechless with all the adventure and fighting scenes especially the battle with the Camp and the monsters! I was like, can this book get any better?! If I was slightly disappointed with book 3, in this one... IS. TOTALLY. AWES...more
Wow, the books in this series just get better and better don't they? I enjoyed this one even more than The Titan's Curse, which I honestly wasn't expecting.
There was so much story development, but I mean, there has to be when the two sides finally start fighting. I think the actual battle of the labyrinth was my favorite scene in the book. So much action. Riordan wrote that very well. It was immensely exciting.
So many love triangles in this book. I must admit, I love the addition of Rache...more
Corned in the band room, the last person Percy expects to help him escape the monsters is Rachel Elizabeth Dare - the mortal girl who hid him from skeleton warriors during one of his quests.
When Percy returns to...more
Percy Jackson is back at Camp Half-Blood – and there is yet another problem. Or rather, the continuing problem of Kronos and his growing army. When another oracle is revealed – this time to Annabeth – the daughter of Athena chooses three inhabitants of the camp to go with her: Percy, Grover, and Tyson. The three set out on the dangerous mission of finding Ariadne’s string before Kronos’ monsters can find it, but it turns out there is more to their quest…and that it...more
It starts with fourteen-soon-to-be-dreaded-sixteen Percy being taken by his mom to the orientation of his new school. Little does he know that soon he will be attacked by a couple of cheerleaders, and not because they think he's handsome. Meanwhile his best friend Annabeth is keeping an eye on Percy's arch enemy Luke and his ever growing evil army out on th...more
