In this latest installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord, Kronos, draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos' 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.
Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this latest audiobook promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

Percy is still Percy, but this book just didn't seem as much fun as the previous ones. The plot meandered a lot more, and the new characters weren't that interesting. There are tons of action scenes in all the Percy Jackson books, but in this one, they seemed a bit much, like they were being used for filler. I actually find the antagonist, Luke, and Annabeth, who remains a sidekick character despite nominally being allowed to "lead", a lot more interesting than Percy himself, who seems a bit too perfect now that he's settled into his hero role (the snarkiness is getting a bit tired at this point, and with the plot darkening, seems very incongruent with everything going on around him and makes sound like a jerk at times). Still, interesting enough for me to want to find out how the series ends.
And Jesse Bernstein's narration is as good as ever.
Listen to it with my grandson we love all of the Percy Jackson books
love the good wins
enjoyed his voice and energy
This series is not as good as the best ones, such as Harry Potter, but it is very enjoyable. And the narrator is excellent.
The series is funny, I usually laugh.

Jesse's voice captured my 7 year olds' attention immediately! He loved listening to this book so much that he's decided he wants to listen to the entire series. :-) He's hooked and a fan for life. I'd read the books already and knew what great stories they are. Great imagination and wonderful meshing of Olympians, Romans and the modern world. Really great story telling by Riordan!
I liked that Jesse sounds like a young man for this series. It allows you to become more involved in the story.
exciting, surprising, unexpected
The Percy Jackson books, and the Artimis Fowl book are similar in the fact that they are both mystery books aimed at pre-teens. Both are great books that more students should read and great examples of written literacy.
He needs to work on differencing between the characters. Develop more voices. His reading is smooth - just not attention grabbing.
Not particularly, due to the reader, but the story line is good.
Hi me o me
Only one problem wit this series they seem to be too short kind of expensive for such short books
Another great adventure with Percy. I think what I like about this series is that I'm actually learning Greek mythology!
Discovered audio books as a way to pass the time at work and now I'm hooked.
One great ride.
My favorite character would have to be the General.
the personality of the characters.
Don't let them make a movie, it will just be ruined.
My son enjoyed this book so much that he often brought my phone in so he could continue listening after our drive. He often listened to the book for hours at a time. As in the others of the series, the reader makes some mistakes, speaking in the wrong voice for a character, but the story was enough for my son that it didn't matter.
