This is the second last of a 5 book series called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Supposedly for middle and high schoolers. But those of us who love mythology and the ancient gods and goddesses can also be enthralled.
And I have always loved the labyrinth, and have been so happy to see them beginning to show up at spiritual centers, and indeed – all over the place. (There is a beautiful and accessible one on the riverfront in Cincinnati!)
So I would have read this one, even if I wasn’t already in love with the series.
And this might be my favorite so far – even more of that breakneck pace, Percy (Perseus) and all his friends, all the appropriate bad guys – and starring the labyrinth itself, which apparently is / was under the entire United States at least.
Almost everyone is still alive at the ending – and Rachel Elizabeth Dare, a mortal, has joined the good guys. This time, for the first time, we get clues at the very end about the next and last book in the series. Which I already have in my bedside table, thanks to the public library. Aaaahhhh. But I have to finish and return a collection of short stories by afficionados of Jane Austen first – so I have two addictions going at one time now. Fun!
