Review: Battle of the Labyrinth, by Rick Riordan

Okay, sorry for the lack of reviews lately. This is because we are doing a revamp, and we're now featuring 3 REVIEWERS!!! What does this mean to you, the casual reader? Well, we'll be reviewing a whole lot more books, and many new types and genres. Yay-hoo!
So this is a book I was VERY excited about. I love this series, and the action really heats up in book four of Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
I never really got "into" this series, but now these books are so good I am treating it like Harry Potter. It has the same type of breathtaking, edge-of-your-seat adventure, with diverse characters. If you're not caught up, try the Lightning Thief, book one in the series.
So, in book 4 Percy and his friends are attacked by cheerleaders. They then go to find out that Luke and his army are planning to get into Camp Half-Blood by using the Labyrinth, an underground maze spanning the entire USA. They are then sent on the quest (with an unlikely hero) to find the maze's creater, Daedalus, and ask for help.
With an amazing ending and a chapter called "I Open A Coffin", this one surely lives up to expectations, and gives enough answers to satiate readers before the final book comes out in 2009. This is a MUST-READ book. 'Nuff said.
