LOVED it! Percy's story takes on a darker tone in the fourth book of the series, as he, Annabeth, Grover and Tyson try to find their way through the great Labryinth of Dedaelus. As I said earlier, as the series progresses, the better it gets! Though in some ways this book acts more as a stepping stone for the final conflict in book five, the characters mature and are faced with more complex situations. I loved the scene with Percy and the river nymph, because it shows the kind of person, and hero, Percy is without a whole lot of sword-fighting (though there is plenty of that, too!). Percy's relationship with Rachel blooms, and he learns a lot about romance from an impromptu sojourn with Calypso (whom I LOVED), and is faced with the choice of putting the world before himself. Annabeth's journey, too, is a very interesting one, as she takes on her biggest challenge yet, and learns that even idols can make mistakes. Overall a great book, and ties in excellently with the final in this series. ( )

Not the strongest of the series. Lots of running around, then tah-dah Kronos is finally here. The last book will the battle to stuff him back into his hole.

I like the theme of Heroic Landmarks shifting with the times but the series is definitely aimed at the younger end of the YA spectrum. ( )

Okay, remember how i had said that when I first read the series this was an okay book for me and the third one was great, well I was wrong. This one's great and the third one is okay. Not bad okay, but this one's better. I love Nico. I love the Labyrinth. I love the Battle. A book. 10/10. Would recommend. ( )

Quarta avventura del giovane semidio Percy, figlio prediletto - e finalmente in questo libro ne avremo al conferma - di Poseidone, Dio - figo - del mare.

Questa volta la missione verrà affidata ad Annabeth, figlia di Atena, che deciderà di portarsi dietro Percy (amico semi-sfigato che le piace.ma.no.continuo.a.struggermi.per.quel.pirla.di.Luke); la capretta Grover che va a caccia del Dio Pan (e se son 2000 anni che lo cercate e ancora non l'avete trovato, non vi viene il dubbio che non vuole rotture di balle 'sto povero Dio? Nah, eh?) e una ragazzina umana, della quale è gelosa per via di Percy (coerenzaaaaaaaa!) e che è in grado di vedere "attraverso la foschia". Dote che fra l'altro ha salvato al pellaccia al nostro eroe già una mezza dozzina di volte...

Il mito che viene affrontato in questa avventura è il mito di Dedalo, il filo di Arianna, Minosse, il Minotauro, Icaro e compagnia bella... Insomma anche questa volta c'è da salvare il mondo e son sempre loro a tre a rischiare l'osso del collo.
Ovviamente aiutati da Dei che saltano fuori qua e là e che non si sa mai se vogliono veramente aiutarli o mangiarli nel sonno conditi con un po' di maionese, ma anche questo fa parte del fascino del libro.

Dobbiamo dire che ad ogni libro l'intreccio fra i vari gradi di parentela si avvicina sempre più - come dovrebbe essere, fra l'altro - ad una puntata inedita di Beautiful, ma Rick Riordan è bravo, molto bravo, e riesce ad incollarci alle pagine del libro senza apparente fatica e nonostante si stia parlando di una libro prettamente per ragazzi.

Fra new entry, vecchie conoscenze con il dentino avvelentato e la mania di far colazione con i morti (leggi: Nico de Angeli, figlioletto adorato di Ade), ci ritroviamo con un cast di tutto rispetto.

Ora manca l'ultimo libro, la battaglia finale fra Dei, Eroi e Crono... Chi avrà la meglio? ( )

Book description
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 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 the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth -- a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.
