Series: Percy Jackson #3
Genres: Action & Adventure, Fantasy & Magic, Young Adult
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 race 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.
And so ends another installment in the Percy Jackson series. I think I still enjoy the first book the most but this one is definitely my favorite after that.
Percy Jackson, Grover, and Annabeth as well as some of our favorite minor characters have returned, and of course they have the world to save again. Or at least stop a major fight from happening. The Titan lord Kronos is gaining his strength, and the titans are building an army to wage war against the Olympians.
Unfortunately, this novel was missing its major star, Annabeth, for a majority of the story. Acting as sort of a replacement was Thalia, daughter of Zeus. I really liked her character and the constant tension between her and Percy, I was always waiting for them to get into a fight.
Plenty of other characters were also introduced, such as the mysterious de Angelo siblings, Bianca and Nico. But my favorite new addition had to be the Hunters.
They were so badass. Oh, and also all the creatures, like the Pegasuses.. Pegasi? And the return of the Hippocami and the Ophiotaurus. I love that Percy has the ability to communicate with them, they have the funniest personalities!
I can’t wait to read the next book! On a side note, Annabeth:
Girl, get over Luke.
