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

by Rick Riordan

As the son of a Greek God, I’ve had my share of near-death disaster – and now my arch enemy Luke wants to invade our camp via an ancient labyrinth.

If he succeeds, thousands of bloodthirsty monsters will attack. So it’s goodbye sunshine, hello darkness as four of us descend into the terrifying underground and beyond . . .

‘The cliff-hanger ending will leave readers breathless in anticipation of the fifth and final volume.’  Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ, School Library Journal

“The wit, rousing swordplay and breakneck pace will once again keep kids hooked.”  Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The fourth and penultimate volume of Percy Jackson and the Olympians is the best one yet.”  Kirkus, starred review

About Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
