Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great day! In the past, I have reviewed the first three books of the Percy Jackson series and here is the fourth! I must have read the books…6 times? I am NOT satisfied with reading a book just once!
Book Name: Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The Battle of the Labyrinth
Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: YA, fantasy, fiction, mythology
Summary: During a game of Capture the Flag, Percy and Annabeth find themselves lost in a strange and unknown place. They don’t know how they ended up there but they manage to get out in a few minutes. They come back to Camp to find people searching for them. They had been gone for over an hour.
They had, unknowingly, entered the Labyrinth.
Demigods are the only beings who can fight Kronos forces. Therefore, Camp Half-Blood is the first place on Kronos’ “To Destroy” list. (Not “To Do”! “To Destroy”! Screams evil!) He is planning the invasion to come through the Labyrinth, one of whose entrance is located at Camp Half-Blood. (How convenient!)
Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and Tyson venture into this forbidding and constantly shifting underground world, seeking a way to stop Kronos’ forces.
Before going on a quest, each demigod has to visit the Oracle of Delphi for a prophecy. This is the Prophecy received by Annabeth:
You shall delve in the darkness of the endless maze,
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.
This is the fourth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. This is the book where the actual war starts. Until now, it had been dangerous quests, riddles, and training. In this book, we also see characters blooming and former simple relationships turn to complicated and dramatic relationships. This is definitely a turning point book. (If that makes any sense!)
Thank you for reading! I hope you have a great day! Let me your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you’ll!
