This is the 4th book in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. As the title suggests, the central myth that is the focus of this story is the concept of the Labyrinth. That doesn't mean there aren't other myths in here (a personal favorite was the standardized testing Sphinx). Anyway, Annabeth and Percy find an opening to the Labyrinth at Camp Half-Blood and they know that they need to find Daedalus so they can get Ariadne's string from him before Luke does. Meanwhile, Grover needs to find Pan before it's too late. Will the heroes succeed in time or will Luke and Kronos succeed? Of all the books in this series, this one might be my favorite, in part because I enjoyed the story of Calypso and how her myth was incorporated here. Don't know the myth? Read this book to get an idea of what her story is about!
