Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

genre: young adult

In Battle of the Labyrinth, Percy Jackson encounters a whole new set of enemies (of course) as well as a few new allies. While you still know that the worst is yet to come (one book left!), this is a great installment. We explore that famous maze, find things that are lost, feel betrayed, and even have a chance to forgive someone that may or may not deserve it.

I do love these books. The integration of Greek Mythology, scenes and characters from The Odyssey and modern-day places is just a really interesting combination. Percy is so...male. He's definitely more of a teenager in this one and his lack of romantic know-how is endearing. I'm a fan of this series, that's for sure.

I'll have to tell my son that the series continues to be good.
