The Battle of the Labyrinth
Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 4

 

 

By Rick Riordan
Narrated by Jesse Bernstein / 10 hours 31 minutes

 

This is the fourth book in the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” series. The author is Rick Riordan who also created the Magnus Chase books, The Kane Chronicles and The Trials of Apollo.

The main characters are: the Demigod, Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon and his friends Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena and Grover Underwood a Satyr and Tyson. The book is great, and Jesse Bernstein’s voice fits perfectly with all the vocal variations — seemingly creating the characters in a way I would have never imagined.

The book starts out with Percy trying to get into a new school. But with his track record, schools end up exploding or within the first hour are attacked by monsters. After arriving at camp half blood he meets his half brother, Tyson – The Cyclops, and hears the bad news of what is happening to Grover. He also notices that Mr. D (short for Mr. Dionysus), the camp leader is missing and instead there is another halfblood, a man who somehow made it past his prime unlike most other demigods. After dinner there is a battle where the challenge is to kill one of three monsters and the winner gets a pouch of gold as a reward. While in the game, Percy and Annabeth end up hiding and find a secret entrance to the camp, The Labyrinth of Daedalus and the few minutes they are down there turns out to be an hour above ground. They are sent on a quest by Chiron to find Daedalus’s workshop with Annabeth leading the quest and breaking the rule of three; three always makes it home yet it increases the chances of them dying. Percy is slowly learning more about how powerful he really is and about how the gods can be towards humans and their offspring.

Will they make it to Daedalus and stop the rising threat of Cronus’s army attacking?
