The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rich Riordan


Book four The Battle of the Labyrinth a novel by Rich Riordan puts events like “Your mom,” Paul said. ‘I’m thinking about proposing to her,” and, “The body in the coffin was Luke’s,” perfectly together. This book was interesting, but it didn’t consistently captivate me on parts. At moments though, like the scene where Percy Jackson is at Mt. St Helens and feels his full powers come in; keeps your heart pounding and can’t see how he’s going to get put of the situation. The part that I didn’t like in the book is when they keep going on the same event like the Labyrinth. I know it’s called the Battle of the Labyrinth for a reason, but it was just very back and forth. Other than that the book was interesting. I think that the overall theme of the book was trust. I say this because the trust between all the demigods, monsters, and gods depend on who wins; Kronos’s side or the God’s side. I would read this book you like fantasy and a book that keeps you on your toes. So next time you want a real thrill rider, stop by your local library or Borders and pick up The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rich Riordan.

The Titans Curse by Rich Riordan

The Titans Curse by Rich Riordan is a riveting book that always keeps you on your toes. It brings mortals, demigods, gods, and Titans together in one book for a satisfactory “10” from me. It’s full of choices that could change the world left on one boy’s shoulder. It also brings out the true feelings of two main characters. “Annabeth made a weak sound of protest. My heart felt like it was being twisted into a knot. I wanted to run to her, but I couldn’t move.” Also the return of the unwanted demigod, Luke is back and staying.” Neither is Luke, you know. I mean……….. he isn’t dead.” He comes back in the beginning to follow the General, an eerie enemy of Zoë Nightshade, who wants to defeat the gods and bring down Olympus. This book is filled with things you wouldn’t think to happen in a Percy Jackson book. I love how Rich brought in new Greek Gods that we’ve never seen before like, Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis and the mysterious Pan. This book is fantastic and is the best of the series in my mind. Titans Curse like all the others is great for anyone. Fifth graders and up would enjoy reading this book. This book was pure enjoyment, it didn’t feel like I had to read for school, it was more that I wanted to. So make sure the next time you go looking for a book you pick up Titans Curse by Rich Riordan, but make sure you’ve read the others leading up to this book because each book flows into the next.
