Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth (Book 4)

Thank You! I really appreciate it!

Kronos is rising, and so is his army. Their intention is to go through Daedalus's labyrinth and get Ariadne's string.

That way, they can navigate the whole maze and go anywhere in the world, including attacking Camp Half-Blood. Annabeth must lead Percy, Grover, and Tyson through this mythical landmark and convince Daedalus not to give Luke's army the string.

The Battle of the Labyrinth Summary & Study Guide

Meanwhile, tension between Annabeth and Percy is building. After Percy introduces his new mortal friend Rachel Elizabeth Dare, and meets Calypso, he gets a feeling he and Annabeth might be more than friends.

I could never put them down.


It is tiresome even if I admit there is some fun to be had with Percy being a clueless fool. With the Calypso storyline both the rushed element I noted above and the introduction of a love quadrangle if the Percy-Annabeth-Rachel Elizabeth was not enough fuse to create a plotline that is not only unpalatable but also completely unnecessary.

Another main problem I have is that years at least two have passed since the beginning of the series and everybody just sounds the same, especially the title character himself, who still sounds Bring on the last book! The fourth and penultimate book in the Percy Jackson series, The Battle of the Labyrinth brings all of the tensions and drama of the first three books to a head and culminates in the rebirth of Lord Vold— er, Kronos.

Annabeth is my favorite character of the series, and I love how she stands up for what is right and wise, even in the face of certain danger and unpopularity—Percy acknowledges this too in one of my favorite parts of the story: Annabeth stood still as a statue. But she clenched her jaw stubbornly.

I realized that was one of the things I liked best about Annabeth. The same goes for another now-recurring character, Rachel Elizabeth Dare.

The fact that the success of the mission lies not solely with a demigod, or granted magical powers or abilities, but a clear-sighted human, is a fantastic twist and interpretation of a classic Greek myth.

Also on the related character front, and completely unrelated to potential love interests for Percy, I love the developments in this penultimate novel.

And speaking of related characters and other sides, this novel painfully and beautifully captures the struggle that Nico faces and the embitterment he feels because of his heritage as a son of Hades and, frankly, how ostracized he is by others because no one likes the underworld , and the loss of his sister.

I would argue that while The Battle of the Labyrinth does engage in fitting deus ex machina type interventions, the underlying cause for those interventions are what make the series so great or why we read Greek mythology to begin with.

In Greek tragedies and myths, certain themes and motifs appear over and over again: war is inevitable, love is often unrequited and almost always leads to tragedy, and, most importantly, no hero or god can ever escape their fate. Sure, things may be delayed or the path to that end destination may vary—but the oracles, the seers, the fates, and their prophecies all come true.

Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth (Book 4)

And, often times, the acts of heroism or evil a character undertakes to prevent or change their fate ironically are the very acts that seal said fate. In the Percy Jackson books—particularly in The Battle of the Labyrinth—we see that fate is inevitable, though Annabeth and Percy and Nico struggle against their prophecies.

But more important than inevitability and railing against it like Luke , or giving up and accepting fate morosely like the Hundred-Handed One , we see the power of belief in oneself and in others to make a difference on the path to that fate.

One of the things I love so much in this series, as Ana and I have talked about before, is the way the book questions authority. Similarly, Percy and his friends cannot blindly put their faith in the gods and parents who have abandoned, absconded, or otherwise ignored their children. Instead of just believing in the Gods, this series is about actively questioning the status quo—we see this from Luke and his vendetta against the his father and Olympus, to Percy and his allegiance to his friends and his family.I love Nico so much.

Tyson enjoys forging, and nicknaming mythical creatures they come across. Who will win? Grover is on his own quest. AudioFile magazine praised the audiobook, raving, "Speedy introductions of familiar and new characters and previous plot summaries may briefly confuse a new listener, but fans will savor them," adding "Jesse Bernstein is on target whether he's narrating blow-by-blow accounts of Percy's sword fights or inventing cameos for various other characters: Hephaestus, who repairs a Toyota; an aged Daedalus; and Grover, Percy's slow-witted sidekick.
