My rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
There’s not much to say about this one. I started off this series a couple months ago really enjoying the first book, but with each book I liked it less and less. I don’t know if it’s series syndrome, where the first book is the strongest and nothing can hold up to that, or I’m just missing something that makes me under appreciate the story as it progresses.
This book felt so darn slow. I was constantly waiting for something to happen, especially something amazing that would lift the book up to the level that The Lightning Thief was. I kept reading, waiting for that something to occur, and I kept reading, and kept waiting, and still nothing felt like it was happening. The whole traveling through the labyrinth part felt like the author was just trying to make the book the same length as the previous book, but while there were some things happening during that large portion of the book, I just didn’t care. I’m starting to hate Percy and even Annabeth is getting on my nerves.
I’m glad that this series is almost over. Part of me just wants to stop here, but with only one book remaining, I will eventually continue on so that I can say I finished the series, but I’m honestly not looking forward to it.
