This novel, written by Rick Riordan, is the fourth installment in the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" Series. This was my third favorite book in the series (5 Books Total), as the action was fast paced and each turn in the Labyrinth kept you guessing!
The book starts off with Percys starting yet another year of school at a different school, however, things start to go awry when he sees a familiar face as well some dirty monsters. The quest (What else is new?), is given to someone who has earned their stripes, but ends up breaking the rules in the process. Their journey through the Labyrinth has it's highs, lows, drama and unexpected revalations about life, especially for one person in particular.
?I'm calm," Rachel insisted. "Every time I'm around you, some monsters attack us. What's to be nervous about?"
"Look," I said. "I'm sorry about the band room. I hope they didn't kick you our or anything."
"Nah. They asked me a lot of questions about you. I played dumb."
"Was it hard?" Annabeth asked.?

exciting and funny
Riordan is fast becoming a solidly respected author for me, if not one of my favorites. I'm very likely to look for other titles by him, based on the strength of the Percy Jackson series. He uses archetypes, but fleshes them out beyond stereotypes. He sends his heroes on interesting quests that are both familiar and new. I like the way he integrates almost-obscure mythological elements and creatures (like the hundred-handed ones) into his modern re-tellings. I also like that all of his main characters get to be the heroes in their own stories, even if Percy is still the focus of narration. Also, the part with the Sphinx was hilariously pointed.
Bully for you, Mr. Riordan; two thumbs up from me once again.
