Review: The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

Cover for The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

Title: The Battle of the Labyrinth 

Author: Rick Riordan

Narrator: Jesse Bernstein

Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4

Length: 10 hrs and 31 mins

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

As the battle between the Olympians and the evil Titan Lord, Kronos, draws closer Percy finds that even the haven of Camp Half-Blood is threatened. Now to stop an invasion, Percy and the gang must set off on a quest through the mysterious and dangerous Labyrinth. 

With each book this series just keeps getting better. Percy has matured so much since the first book. He is almost 15 and is dealing with the awkwardness of being a teen, on top of dealing with the usual monster fights. I liked seeing Percy allow someone else to take a lead on a quest and actually follow Annabeth’s lead, mostly. 

This was a very fast paced and action packed adventure for Percy and the gang. They are jumping around all over the world, fighting monsters, talking to gods, and navigating a labyrinth. The friendship between Percy, Tyson, Grover, and Annabeth is great and I love how it has grown since the first book. 

A lot happens in this book and it just makes me more interested in reading the next book and seeing how this all ends. This has just been a great story and character development. I can really understand why so many people love this series.
