Rating: 9/10

The last thing I wanted to do on my summer break, was to blow up another school.
This is an excerpt from the fourth book of the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” series. This is Percy saying that he doesn’t want to blow up a school.. He is saying this, because if he blows up another school, then he would get in serious trouble, and he already has blown up one.

This series is based upon Greek Mythology and Greek gods. It has a main character, Percy Jackson, who is a demi-god. A demi god is a person who is a son or daughter of any Greek god and a mortal. In this book Percy is helped by two of his friends, Annabeth, who is a demi-god and daughter of Athena, and Grover who is a satyr.

The problem in this book is that Luke, a Demi-god, has joined the Titan army. They are planning an invasion, on Camp Half-blood through the Labyrinth which is a maze. So Camp Half-blood is sending some people in the Labyrinth, to convince the creator of the Labyrinth to not let the Titan army pass through. Also there is a string that will lead them to Camp Half-blood. This string is the only thing in the Labyrinth, that can help you through the maze, besides the creator.

Now Percy has to go in the maze and find the creator of the Labyrinth and convince him to give him the string and not to help the Titan army. Percy also has to be back on time, for the invasion at Camp half-blood, so he can defend Camp half-blood. Will Camp half blood win or will it be defeated?

There are a some gods mentioned in this book, like Pan. He is the god of plants. He is important because he has been lost for centuries. Luke is a demi-god who is really Kronos . Percy, Annabeth, Grover, Chiron are good characters, like inn the other books.

I thought this book was better than superb, because it had a lot of surprising parts. It also is my most favorite book in the Percy Jackson series. I hope Rick Riordan will be writing more of these types of books. This book is better than most of J.K. Rowling books, except “The Deathly Hallows“. I feel like I could read this book a bunch of times and never get sick of it or bored. This book is one the best books I have ever read.
