The is #4 in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. Percy is 14 and the son of Poseidon. In this exciting installment Percy and his friends venture into the Labyrinth to stop the bad guys from overtaking their summer camp, and waging war on Olympus. ( )

With the discovery at Camp Half-Blood of an entrance into the labyrinth designed by Daedalus and also an arrival of one of Luke's followers who is somewhat befuddled it is assumed that Luke plans to use this as a way to launch an offensive and strike at the camp. Annabeth leads a quest to find Daedalus to enlist his help to prevent this and takes along Percy, Tyson and Grover. The latter of which is about to lose his searcher's license which will end his personal endeavour in locating the wild god Pan.

The characters in this fourth instalment seem to have grown up a bit and the overall tone of the story is a touch darker than previous although not without touches of humour along the way. The pace of the story remains high throughout with this being primarily an action-oriented series but there are a few detours for the reader to catch their breath. Although this is aimed primarily at the younger end of the YA spectrum there is still enough here for me to want to continue to the final book. Not sure yet if I will then move on to the next one though. ( )

While this takes a step down from the heights of The Titan's Curse, it's still fun to read and an excellent story. One scene in particular, involving Grover's quest, is especially well done. ( )

fun, exciting, I can see the appeal - but I only read the series because my son loved it ( )

The only weaker of these series that I found was the second. This was another solid entry. ( )
