This book came from the library, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

My Take

More conflicts between the Greek gods and the Titans with much scurrying back and forth amongst the lesser gods, the monsters, and the half-bloods.

In this particular story, Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and Tyson must find Daedulus at the heart of the Labyrinth before the Titans can reach him or Camp Half Blood will be overrun. Percy must engage the help of a mortal girl he met in the last book, Titan’s Curse, and Grover has very little time to find Pan before the Council exiles him from the Search. In the meantime, Luke appears conflicted in his new oaths while Kronos is taking over in more ways than one.

Nice use of Mount St. Helena, Calypso’s exile, and Icarus’ fatal flight
