The Battle of the Labyrinth - Rick Riordan

As this series draws closer to the end, we follow our friends, Percy and Annabeth, on a dangerous journey through the Labyrinth.  Annabeth gets to take charge and lead her own mission.  She chooses Percy, Grover, and Tyson as her companions. They have to find Daedalus to get Ariadne's string before Luke does and navigate through the labyrinth that could potentially drive them all insane.  Meanwhile, minor gods and demigods alike are joining forces with Kronos and people are already dying in a war that has only just started.  Things get a little messy as Rachael Elizabeth Dare is reintroduced and poor Percy doesn't quite know why Annabeth and Rachael are butting heads.  Percy, Annabeth, and Rachael must work together to stop Kronos from taking over Camp Half-Blood. 

I was a little worried after reading the last book but this one made it all worth it. There was a lot of developments along with heart pounding action.  This book had the potential to get really confusing since so much does happen but it was very easy to follow. One of the things I really enjoy about this series is how the relationships between Percy and the other characters develop.  I love the comedic banter and I can see Percy as a somewhat normal, clueless teenage boy.  The tension between Annabeth and Rachael is pretty funny.  I liked that we got to delve deeper into the plot and that it has gotten darker and a little more serious.   This book is now my favorite book in the series and I cannot wait to get my hands on the final installment!!
