The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

"The Battle of the Labyrinth" is the last book printed to date in the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series, and I can hardly wait for the fifth and final book to come out!

Book four starts out with Percy attending Freshman orientation at the school his Mom's boyfriend works at. No big deal right? Wrong! The very first chapter is titled, "I Battle the Cheerleading Squad." He's soon running from the scene as fast as he can, hoping to avoid taking the blame for yet another mess!

Meanwhile, back at Camp Half-blood, the danger is ramping up. Kronos's army plans to invade the camp before they attempt to take over Olympians, and again it will fall to Percy and his friends to save the day.

This time Percy and his friends find themselves struggling to make their way through the Labyrinth. That's right, the ancient Greek myth of the labyrinth is actually represented by a real place, and it's under the United States! The labyrinth is a confusing and dangerous place. Logic won't get you through it, bravery will help, and your lucky if you don't lose your mind.

How will Percy and his friends conquer this challenge? Read the book to find out!
