6th Grade Entry - Battle of the Labyrinth

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Keenan’s entry. Thanks, Keenan!

The Battle of the Labrynth

The book Battle of the Labyrinth is about a young adolescent named Percy who is a half-blood -half god half person. Who finds an entrance to the Labyrinth which is a huge underground maze that was made to disorient people’s minds so nobody can get through it to the builders-daedlus’- workshop and kill him. Then Percy’s friend Anebeth was given a quest by the good centaur Chiron who is the director of camp half-blood. The quest was to find daedlus and convince him to let them navigate the maze.

On the quest Percy and Anebeth run into Hephestus-the god of blacksmith. He then said that he would tell them how to get to daedlus if they checked out Mt. Saint Helens because there were Telakhines that were making weapons for the Titan army-the army that’s going to fight the gods. When Percy came back from the mountain Hephestus did as he promised and Percy and Annebeth got on their way to find the master builder Daedlus. They found him in the brightest place in the maze wich was unexpected because they thought it would be in the darkest, oldest part of the maze. When they found his workshop they also found that Daedlus was really their swordsmen at camp.

The main characters are Percy and Annebeth. Percy is a tough dude and is very fun to be around and is a great swordsmen and a good fighter all around. And Anebeth is the best girl fighter you will ever meat.

I recommend this book for anyone really. I mean it’s the best book I’ve read but I really recommend it for people that are into Greek mythology and action books.

What I liked about the book was mainly the action, and how the plot got thicker as the book went on, and that it was very exciting. The best part of the book was when Percy gets to camp and it’s describing the defense system and when the battle itself happened. I liked the book because I like action, excitement, and not knowing what’s going to happen next and this book gave me all of that.
