The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 3)

The story starts out with Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia trying to help Grover to sneak out two half-bloods from a private military style school. Things get immediately messy and they stumble upon yet another problem, or more like a crisis.

In the process of a battle Annabeth is stolen away. Something called The General is out again wrecking havoc and as you can already tell Luke has a hand in all this. This I have yet to be disappointed in this series.

This time around though you see Luke for what he really is, a kid trying to play with the big boys. We get to see the goddess Artemis and her huntresses.

Now, I know that isn't fair or accurate, but that was my first impression. I'm admitting I was an idiot, yes.

As I said, though, the second book still didn't quite wow me. The whole narrative felt like basically an endless series of cliff-hangers with little to no character development and not enough plot. The cliff-hangers seemed to be far more numerous than most quest books in fantasy settings.

The rest of the review will show why.

The plot is simple. In a rescue mission to save two fellow demi-gods, Percy, Annabeth, Grover, and their new friend Thalia, encounter trouble.

Though they save the twin half-bloods, Annabeth goes missing, and to make matters worse, so does a powerful goddess ally, Artemis. Of course, a quest is in order. But the questions are rather more complicated than one might think in this case. Normally, these quests are, of course, quite dangerous. Because a prophecy from the Oracle is that at least two of the members of the quest will not make it back alive While the plot is relatively straight-forward at first, the narrative and plot developments this time were quite a bit more complicated.

Not only did Riordan expand on the mythology of the series, and the connections to Classical Greek myths, but the structure was different. Gone was the nearly every chapter cliff-hanger, with the accompanying desperate rushes from one danger to the next, one clue to the next.

In it's place was a slower and more long-term story progression. Don't get me wrong. The sense of excitement and adventure was just as strong, but the story was a better one in this way.

This is because there was more time taken to spend more time exploring the characters and their thoughts and the world-building, as well as both delving into the past of this world and laying down groundwork for future plots. Not only do they have the duties they have always had, but they are also dealing with the fact that the coming hostilities with the forces of Kronos are causing other supernatural gods and god-like beings to cause problems that make their jobs harder.

The reason I liked this one as well is that the characters are kinda coming into their own and beginning to grow up.

Annabeth is becoming more mature and able to forgive and see others' points of view more. Meanwhile, Percy is faster on his feet where he can handle things without constant directions. Though he still isn't the strategist that Annabeth is, and thus doesn't do as well as when he's teamed up with her, he still acquits himself admirably.

Grover, though, is a disappointment here. He's reduced to little more than comic relief. That annoys me in that while he was the weakest member of the quest, he's still a knowledgeable and capable guy. Or should be. I hope that he gets more impressive again in coming books.

I can't say much about other characters so as to not give away their roles, but just to say that Riordan does a good job with fleshing out their characters and arcs in a way that really makes them vivid to the reader and gets you to care about them. I can honestly say now that I really enjoy this series and that it has become one of my favorites.

Highly Recommended. I'm so stunned, I can't make physical human noises right now!!!! This book was soooooooo good!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot wait until I read the next one!!!! In this book, Percy goes on another quest, this time with new characters, the Hunters. I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about the Hunters.

They seemed like girls who had gone through a rough time and needed to feel a sense of sisterhood and gain immortality. At the time, I wasn't sure if they could be considered "good guys" or "bad guys". The book started out jumping right into action. Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia were on there way somewhere in Percy's mom's car. Sally was driving them to meet Grover, who was s stationed at a military boarding school.

I kind of felt like I had missed out on somethings that had happened between the Sea of Monsters and The Titan 's Curse. I didn't know if that was an okay to thing or not, but I think I'm okay with it, because Thalia, Percy, and Annabeth had seemed to develop a friendship. Anyway, there are two new half-bloods discovered and there is a monster at the school who wants the kids to go to Krono's side. I could not believe it, and I was very sad because Annabeth is one of my favorite characters.

So, the story plays off from there. The book was great, and I recommend it to people who enjoy an adventure in modern day Greek Mythology. Paperback Verified download. Another great book by Rick Riordan.

I had a terrible time getting my son to read. I love to read and am a teacher so this was particularly disturbing for me. Thalia battles Luke, and he falls from a cliff, apparently dead.
