About (taken from goodreads.com)

Percy Jackson isn’t expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to worse.
In this fourth installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos’s army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth – a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.

Review

This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The next book is at the very top of my to-read pile. I loved that we got to meet a few more Gods. Every book there’s a new one we get to see. They are so funny and never what I expect them to be. Plus the plot is just as exciting as the first ones. The labyrinth is so creepy! It’s completely random and there’s a whole bunch of new monsters we get to see. I really enjoyed the scene with the Sphinx and the battle at the end was pretty cool. I’m getting a little nervous because nobody important has died yet but this could be a series where everything ends up happy. Who knows!

I love how you can tell how much older the characters are getting. Percy is getting so much smarter and less childish. It’s so cute! Annabeth is as smart as always but you can tell she’s becoming a teenager with her little crush. Tyson and Grover actually get along in this book which was really cute. Even Clarisse is starting to grown up. I’ve gotten really attached to all these characters but the author makes it so easy!

Basically this book is just as good as the others, if not better. If you STILL haven’t read this series it’s a must!
