Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth | Rick Riordan | Review

“Be careful of love. It’ll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.”





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.


Okay, I really liked this one. I loved the idea of the Labyrinth, it was so intriguing. I found that I was on the edge of my seat throughout reading.

TYSON IS BACK. YES. I always find that the higher ratings comes when Tyson is back in the book. I really love his character. I feel like in this book so many of the characters developed which i really enjoyed reading about. I think my favourite thing is the relationship between the main characters. Honestly, they are friendship goals. I cant wait to see what they get up in the final book. But I am not sure I am ready to say bye to them. I dont know how I am going to cope.

The writing style hit us again, I was on my edge throughout the book and I did not want to put it down. It was very action-packed and was the second 300 page book in this series that I devoured within the same day. The urge to pick up the final book was unreal however it was a couple of minutes before midnight and I decided I needed to sleep.

I have already mentioned this but my favourite part of this book was the Labyrinth. I love the idea, and especially love the execution of it. It intrigued me throughout and I loved all the action that unfolded when the characters were within it. I mean bad things happened in there, but I wanted to have a go. I want to have an adventure in the Labyrinth with Percy Jackson … and Tyson obviously.

I cant believe I did not read this book when I was younger, I have however loved discovering it as an adult. I am not sure whether I am ready for the final book or ready for this series to end.
