Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Battle of the Labyrinth

"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."

What can I possibly say? It was one of those books - one where the pages couldn't be turned quick enough. The demigods and their Olympian parents are nearing all out war with Kronos, the Titans, other demigods, and traitorous gods. Percy, Annabeth, Grover and their friends are about to make some of the hardest choices of their lives - because after this summer, everything changes.

The book retains the series notable humor while showing how the demigods have changed and grown.

Also, Kronos gets nailed in the eye by a mortal girl. How cool is that?
