As an incoming freshman, Percy isn't expecting his high school orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears, 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 them, Percy and his demigod friends will set out on a quest through the Labyrinth-a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn. Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this fourth book promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

I love this series. Good for grade 3-7.

I loved this book and it was amazing my second favorite book in the series I absolutely love it it is amazing great book I love it!

When you think that you need adventure, you should read the amazing Percy Jackson series! This book is the fourth book of the series, and every series I read makes me amazed. In the book, Percy Jackson and his friends are traveling through the mysterious Labyrinth, where they find trouble, and they try to find the famous Daedalus. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens next. But I assure you that you will love this book Mr. Riordan wrote!

In this book, Percy attends high school orientation. He recognizes Rachel from Hoover Dam who is a mortal who could see past the mist. The orientation ends with cheerleaders who turn out to be empousai setting the band room on fire. It is also Annabeth's first time leading a quest. Overall, I think this was interesting and creative. I recommend this to people who enjoy the Percy Jackson books or Heroes of Olympus series. I rate this 5/5.

The stakes are higher than ever before in "Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth." Grover's searcher's license will be revoked in a week, despite the fact that he's been searching for the god Pan all his life. Tyson and Grover are deathly afraid of each other. Annabeth hears a prophecy about her quest that ends in death. And Percy Jackson's world is crumbling. His friends are carrying weights, Kronos' regime looms over him, and Luke has a plan that will forever change Camp Half-Blood's safety. As Percy and his allies enter the deathly Labyrinth, a structure that has a mind of its own, he will learn things that he perhaps never wanted to learn.

⚠️WARNING!!! SPOILERS⚠️ This is probably my favorite book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It is full of action, drama, and totally EPIC battles. One of my favorite moments was when Rachel (Percy’s mortal friend from New York) whacks Kronos in the eye with her hairbrush. I mean, that takes really good aim to be able to do that. The fact that Quintus ended up being Deadelus?! Blew. My. MIND. I loved The Battle of the Labyrinth, and I hope you do too!!!

This Percy Jackson book was not the best one. I mean you walk through a maze, turn a corner, fight a monster, and then that basically the whole book.
