The Titans Curse by Rick Riordan
(taken from goodreads.com)
When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he’ll need his powerful demigod allies at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and . . . a ride from his mom.
The demigods reace to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods, whose parentage is unknown. But that’s not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up a devious trap, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.
Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge yet—the chilling prophecy of the Titan’s curse.
I cannot be disappointed in this series. It’s just too good! The world you get sucked into is amazing! The author has made it so realistic that you feel like you could be a part of it yourself. You’ll never be bored reading this book. There’s so many new myths and monsters to learn about. I love seeing where are these Greek things are in the modern world. Like Mount Olympus in New York and San Francisco. It’s just so cool!
I really liked the story in this one. It’s funny how Percy always gets sucked into these things. I’m super happy he was going to find Annabeth. I loved how Aphrodite got a little involved for a minute. It was really cute. I also really, really love Artemis and was happy to see her in this one. It was so sad that she got kidnapped with Annabeth. Plus Bessie was really cool too.
The characters get better and better each book. Percy is starting to understand his world a little bit more now. He’s also starting to get attached to Annabeth I think. I can’t wait for that to happen. Annabeth is as fantastic as usual and Grover is hilarious. I even started to like Thalia and Zoe. They were really interesting characters.
Basically this was an excellent book that everyone needs to read. Right away.
