2008, Disney Hyperion Books
Series: Book 4 of Percy Jackson & the Olympians
Why read: Reading the series
What impressed me: I have such absolute love for this series. It continues to impress me with the entertaining manner it teaches mythology, much more than just the basics. The Battle of the Labyrinth delves much deeper into the subject than anything I ever learned in school and I'm loving every minute of it. Percy continues to grow and change, taking on more and having to really start dealing the the hard decisions of life, both demigod and mortal. He continues to gain the respect of his elders and there's a scene with his father that is just completely perfect.
What disappointed me: What is Annabeth's problem? Girlish jealousy or something more? It's seriously starting to grate on my nerves.
Recommended: Most definitely. This series keeps getting better and better.
Continue series: How could I not? The end is close and I need to know what happens.
