Percy Jackson & the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

So I finished Percy Jackson & the Titan's Curse about 45 min ago... I got something to eat, wrote the review and got settled to start the next book in this amazing series. I'm ready to see where Riordan takes me to now.
Paperback, 361 pages
Published April 7th 2009
Hyperion Book CH
Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4
Percy Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun.  But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to diabolical.

In this latest 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 must 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.
Even the book blurb has left me excited. I have no choice to not start reading this tonight!
Letting the Pages of the Story "Take me Away..."

In short, I REALLY enjoyed this book. This book to me has had the best prophecy in the series. It featured many of Riordan's crazy twists and turns and everything in it threw me for a loop. For the book to have only two real settings, it still kept my attention and I still was able to have fun with the book. I felt as if I was in the maze with them. The two things about the book I enjoyed the most were the things or people they found out about in the maze itself and the fact that Percy's love life is finally unfolding. What I didn't like was Annabeth was acting like a real crazy person for her mother to be Athena.... I'm just saying. I just don't know whar she still sees in Luke. I really would like to know why she keeps thinking he's just going to change his mind and end up on their side. He chose his side long ago, its over and done. But with that being said, the book was still great. I can't wait to start reading the next one, although I am sad because the next one is the last one (in Percy's specific series).
Overall I give this **** (4 out of 5)
