Publisher's Summary

The fourth incredible adventure in the Percy Jackson series is now available to download, complete and unabridged, on audio.

"Honestly, blowing up another school was the last thing I wanted to do. As the son of a Greek god, I've had my share of near-death disaster. This summer, I didn't choose to battle the cheerleading squad, but when two hissing she-devils with fangs are heading straight for you, what's a half-blood meant to do?

"That was just the beginning. This is the one where my arch-enemy, Luke, is looking for a way to invade our camp via an ancient labyrinth. If he succeeds, thousands of bloodthirsty monsters will attack. So it's goodbye sunshine, hello darkness as four of us descend into the terrifying underground and beyond."

Great story ruined by cringe-y accents

Love all of the Percy Jackson books but the narrator really gets on my nerves. Quintus’s accent seemed to be an attempt at an English accent? It was poorly-done and distracting. And the forced Japanese accent for Ethan was absolutely cringeworthy, much like with Annabeth’s stepmother in the previous book. Even the voices for characters with American accents were jarring, with strange tones and inflections. I hope this series is re-narrated one day as it’s really difficult to immerse myself in the story when I’m gritting my teeth at the narration.

Grandson loves these stories

He has listened to these stories so many times that he can recite them by heart. He is an 11 year old, massively keen on mythology - Percy Jackson is a modern day Hero and his adventures are joy to a young man's heart!

Percy is a hero

I absolutely loved this audiobook! I listened to it every day and late into the night! I didn't dislike a bit of it! I loved every bit. I would recommend this book to age 6+ as some of it has long words and gruesome deaths! I didn't mind though,I thought it was EXCELLENT!!! I chose this rating because the reading was read perfectly,it was exciting and there was no glitches or things going wrong! I can't wait/listen to the next audiobook/book!😊

Disappointing narrator

I love the book, as with all Riordan’s previous work but Jesse Bernsteins performance as the narrator was pretty disappointing. As someone who has listened to his rendition of the previous books in this series I take issue with his need to rely upon stereotypes in his voice acting so much. The affected accents for certain characters of other ethnicities takes away some of the work done by the author to offer an inclusive repertoire of characters.

I worry about the decision to cast Bernstein when it is clear to me that any number of other narrators would have been able to do justice to the books without relying on such affected stereotypes. I only wish there was an alternative to this particular narrator.

Great story. They books keep getting better

Really enjoyed the story. Performance was better but the accents are still a little racist.

Another great book in an excellent series.

Good story, the narrator was good but I don't think he captured the essence of certain characters. Still a great listen though.

Great book

Narrator Jesse Bernstein was amazing!!! He really know how to change voice and animate everyone different way. Listening to Percy Jackson with him will make you feel like you are there with them on adventure. I couldn't stop listening. Thank you Jesse I'm your fan.
