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.

The Battle of the Labyrinth is the best of all!
Yes to Rick Riordan. Stuck with Bernstein if I want to finish listening to the series.
Cliche. Offensive. Uninspired.
Good story, terrible delivery. I've listened to the first four Percy Jackson series and the first one was so dry, with all characters read in the same voice - I found myself wishing Bernstein would vary the character voices. Now that he has I prefer the original dry delivery. His performances of the Asian characters is especially offensive! Why on earth would an Asian character automatically have some idiotic caricature of an accent?
I have enjoyed every Rick Riordan book I have read. He has become a masterful writer. I greatly enjoy books that have plot, theme, and just enough reality for my imagination to impose the possibilities of reality. Rick incorporates real places with real written history to make fantastic representations of present possibilities. He is very good. I am also an adult, a parent, and a doctor. I read every day as well as my daughter and we both love his books.
If the Harry Potter series is the standard, Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series is an admirable try, but still minor league. This 4th book in the series is probably his best; the story plot gets thicker and more intriguing. However, there are chapters that are adventurous but do not add to the developing plot in any way: OK for kids, but less than fulfilling for adults. Overall, a good purchase. I will read/listen to the next book.

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.
