Up through the 3rd book in the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” series, you are getting prepared for an epic battle. You meet characters and you get to know and love each one. But you ain’t seen nothin’ ‘til you get to the 4th book, “The Battle of the Labyrinth.” This book as action-packed, fast-paced, and just an all around GREAT book!!! You feel each character’s pain as difficult decisions are made, and you want to just jump in and help fight the battle as it approaches! The only down side to this book is the ending … it leaves you BEGGING for the 5th book!!!! This book, so far, is my favorite in this series (I have just started the final book, “The Last Olympian”), and I truly cannot wait to get into the action of this last one!!!! Have not anticipated a final book since the “Harry Potter” series!!! I strongly urge reader’s to read this book – truly amazing!!!
