I want to make this brief and spoiler free, just in case someone who hasn't read the book reads it.
I am 13 years old and hard to please in the reading department, really, the books that have always caught my attention are those of adventure and fantasy (for example Harry Potter) and this book has it.
After reading The Titan's Curse I believed the books couldn't get any better, and I was proved wrong.
The Battle of the Labyrinth is amazing, it has a lot of fighting, some interesting things about Greek mythology that I never knew about, a little romance (We all know we're just waiting for Percy's and Annabeth's friendship to evolve into something bigger!), funny stuff and much more!!
We get to see more of characters that had disappeared (*cough* Nico *cough*) and meet very interesting new people!
I highly recommend this, and if you're reading this then there's two things you can do:
1. If you haven't read the book then what the hell are you waiting for? Go get it!
2. If you have read this book then buy the next one! It's what I'm gonna do right now!
Rick Riordan has once again cleverly entwined the mythical world of demigods into the modern world in such a great way. I really liked the concept in this book. The Labyrinth is an amazing setting and is so mysterious. It's a place that has so many possibilities and potential for adventure, that I hope we haven't seen the last of it.
Percy is once again on a mission that is full of danger and humour, to stop the baddies from passing through the Labyrinth and into Camp Half-Blood. Aside from the main characters, a number of others have carried over from the previous books. They have added some interesting new sub-plots to keep an eye on and I'm guessing that these characters will have pivotal roles in the next book. I have to say, that I found Nico quite annoying, but I put that down to clever writing that has created a character that is triggering my emotions. No doubt, the next book will build on his story and I will hopefully understand why he is like he is, and why he annoys me so much. Privately, I'm also suspicious of one/more character/s, but I'll let the next book prove me either right or wrong.
The Battle of the Labyrinth is another great instalment in the Percy Jackson series. I'm keen to get straight into the next and final book to see if everything turns to rotten eggs, or if the world will survive. I'm confident I know which ending it will be, but it's the journey that fills the books that we love to read, not just the ending.
