The Battle of the Labyrinth Book Review
This week I'm reviewing The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan. I really enjoyed this series and I'm excited to share my opinions with you. Here is the synopsis from the front flap:
As an incoming freshman, Percy isn't expecting his high school orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears, 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 them, Percy and his demigod friends will set out on a quest through the Labyrinth-a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.
My first impression of this book was that it had a very nice cover and it leaves you with so many questions, kind of like the second book in this series. I liked this book a lot, there was continuous action that didn't stop throughout the whole book. I liked seeing all the monsters from my favorite Greek myths be brought to life in a current time. The only thing I disliked about the book was that they were in the Labyrinth throughout the whole book, and it had a couple parts where it dragged on. Other than that I thought the book was great. My rating of this book is 4/5 stars. The next review that will be up, will be for The Last Olympian, the fifth and last Percy Jackson book, by Rick Riordan.
