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 change from bad to worse.
In this fourth installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war 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.

This book did to me what the Percy Jackson series always does. Confuses me in the beginning, interests me in the middle, than grabs me in and refuses to let go at the end. I like the series, of course, and it might not have five stars because it's been a while since I read The Titan's Curse, so my memory could have been a little foggy, leading me to not understanding it. I did like the storyline though, as always, the chapter names were great, and the plot was very suspenseful.
The Bottom Line: Good, but I found it a little confusing at the start
