Battle of the Labyrinth

Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: Fantasy
Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Number in series: 4th
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Type: Fiction
Number of pages: 361
Time period: Fantasy/present day
My overall opinion: Again, see my reviews of the earlier books in this series. I liked this one a tad more than some of them – labyrinths have always intrigued me. Though I’d really hate to be in one, stories set in one are most interesting.

This was one of the books that I really liked, because it was so strongly connected to a real Greek myth. I like to say the word labyrinth. :)

Isn't it a delightful word? :)

I read the series, and I'm going to read the *other* series, but, although the story was excellent and the characters were funny, I didn't about them. I mean, when that one person got you-know-what'd by the minotaur thing, I was just like...okay? They were an amusing read, however. The thing that bothered me the most wasn't the greek gods being in them(I mean, it's fantasy, and he never claims that they were real, and he never even claims that God doesn't exist) what bothered me the most was the whole fact that the demi-gods even exist, and that they went and talked about their different affairs - like the age range of kids reading this need to know about that!
