The Percy Jackson series were one of the first books I've ever fallen in love with. I adored all of the characters. For some reason, this book stood out to me the most. Perhaps it's because, being the third book, the characters have matured a bit and we all grow to understand them individually. There is something about Rick Riordan's writing that makes you feel like a kid in some parts of the book, but also an adult when it comes to mature scenes. I can't even describe how much I love these books. I almost never cry when it comes to books or movies, but I did for these series while I was reading the last book. Always will be a fan!

The other child is back.  The child of Zeus, Thalia, who got turned into a pine tree years before.  An all powerful goddess has been captured and without her, the Winter Solstice won't commence.  It's up to the campers and another group of people at the camp to cooperate together to save the goddess.  Also, possibly, a child of the Big Three is about to turn 16.  Is she the child of the Great Prophecy? 5 Stars

For a while, I was a bit confused with why there was five books when Percy had only aged four years. But then I realized that this book happened during the winter, the time Percy would regularly be at school, and not at camp as he would have been at during the summer. However, it may have taken me a while to notice this. In this book, we learn about many new factors and parts of the Greek Mythology world that have not yet been known to us. For instance, if Artemis didn't have children, what was the next closest thing? Also, who is this titan that has been cursed upon, as the title indicates? Readers should enjoy this book as much as any other story by the same author.

After reading the first two books of the series, “The Titan's Curse” didn’t fail to disappoint me. Reading the whole series, Rick Riordan’s writing just keeps getting better and better. “The Titan’s Curse” is filled with adventure, fighting, fantasy, and more Greek mythology. The characters have so much personality and I could really feel the character development throughout each book. One thing I really like about “The Titan’s Curse” is the plot twist at the end. It was above and beyond. All of the “Percy Jackson and The Olympians” books had an amazing ending that made you want to continue to read the next book. “The Titan's Curse” introduces many more characters and the pace is fast enough to keep you fascinated by the book. I would rate this book a solid 5/5 stars.

This series is one of the best I've ever read, and I totally ship Percabeth. I've always loved Greek myths, and Rick Riordan found a way to bring them into modern society. The Titans Curse makes me want to become one of Artemis' hunters!

In my book the main character is a boy named Perceus, or Percy Jackson. Percy is the son of the sea god, Poseidon. His mother is a mortal named Sally Jackson. This makes him a half-blood so he goes to a camp for others like him. Percy is always known for his adventurous spirit and his lack of listening.

Percy and his friends Thalia, daughter of Zeus, and Annabeth, daughter of Athena, find two powerful half-bloods and set off with their friend Grover, a satyr, to accompany them. But when they get to the military school where they were found, a monster known as Lord Kronoses (side named Dr. Thorn) attacks them. In the end, Annabeth makes a decision and pushes the monster off a cliff. Annabeth falls with it. From then on, Percy has visions of Annabeth helping a traitor named Luke take the sky and suffers. Soon Artemis and her Hunters come and are determined to find a terrible monster. Artemis is captured. Zoe and the new half-blood, Banica di Angelo take Percy, Thalia, and Grover on the mission.

After that they find out that a prophecy the Oracle spoke about comes true. Then Banica dies in the desert and Zoe dies because of her father, Atlas. In the end, Percy's perseverance pays off and that life is life and you can't stop it.

I really liked this book and recommend it because it brings modern technology and ancient Greek myths together.

The book was pretty well written, filled with humorous comments and full of amazing adventures. However, in my opinion, it feels slower and less interesting than the first 2 books in the series.

Great book, but can't compare to the legendary Harry Potter

“Hey, can I see that sword you were using?"
I showed him Riptide, and explained how it turned from a pen into a sword just by uncapping it.
"Cool! Does it ever run out of ink?"
"Um, well, I don't actually write with it."
"Are you really the son of Poseidon?"
"Well, yeah."
"Can you surf really well, then?"
I looked at Grover, who was trying hard not to laugh.
"Jeez, Nico," I said. "I've never really tried."
He went on asking questions. Did I fight a lot with Thalia, since she was a daughter of Zeus? (I didn't answer that one.) If Annabeth's mother was Athena, the goddess of wisdom, then why didn't Annabeth know better than to fall off a cliff? (I tried not to strangle Nico for asking that one.) Was Annabeth my girlfriend? (At this point, I was ready to stick the kid in a meat-flavored sack and throw him to the wolves.)”

“Grover was sniffing the wind, looking nervous. He fished out his acorns and threw them into the sand, then played his pipes. They rearranged themselves in a pattern that made no sense to me, but Grover looked concerned.
"That's us," he said. "Those five nuts right there."
"Which one is me?" I asked.
"The little deformed one," Zoe suggested.
"Oh, shut up.”

“Let us find the dam snack bar," Zoe said. "We should eat while we can."
Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?"
Zoe blinked. "Yes. What is funny?"
"Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries."
Even Thalia smiled at that. "And I need to use the dam restroom."

I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at me. "I do not understand."
"I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said.
"And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath. "I want to buy a dam t-shirt.”

“Wow," Thalia muttered. "Apollo is hot."
"He's the sun god," I said.
"That's not what I meant.”

“Stars,” She whispered, “ I can see the stars again, my lady”
A tear tricked down Artemis’s cheek. “Yes, my brave one, they are beautiful tonight.”

“Can’t this thing go any faster?” Thalia demanded.
Zoe glared at her. “I cannot control traffic.”
You both sound like my mother,” I said.
Shut up!” they both said in union.”

Annabeth has been captured and Percy goes on a quest with Bianca (daughter of hades) and the hunters of Artemis and Thalia (daughter of Zeus) to find her

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 27, 2012

Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia are sent to rescue two half-bloods, Bianca and Nico Di-Angelo. While on this mission, they are attacked by a manticore, but are saved by the Hunters of Artemis. Annabeth is taken captive when the manticore flees. The Hunters, Percy, Thalia, and Grover are sent to camp by Artemis and Apollo. Artemis is soon taken captive and a quest is issued. Grover, Thalia, Bianca and Zoë Nightshade, Artemis's lieutenant, go to rescue Artemis. Percy follows and soon joins the quest. Bianca is killed while facing an automaton. They learn that the Titan Atlas has escaped and was behind the kidnapping of Artemis. Atlas is defeated and returned to holding the sky, but Zoe is killed by Atlas who is her father. Thalia replaces Zoë as Artemis' lieutenant during the gods' summit. Thalia's induction as a lieutenant of Artemis ensures that she never reaches 16, thus escaping the prophecy but leaving Percy as the only one who can fulfill it. They return to camp and Percy informs Nico about Bianca's death. He blames Percy, accusing him of failing to protect her and runs away. Percy learns that the underworld god, Hades, is Nico's father.


In this extremely cool 3rd book of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. there were lots of surprises. There were lots of fighting and story. This was one of my favorite book of series. There was many Bad obstacles but they overcame them all. in this book, Percy, Annabeth,Thilia and Grover goes to a military school to look for two half-bloods! these half-boods are very strong. When they found the two half-bloods, they found out that they werent the only "people" looking for them. The two half-bloods was brother and sister. They had to fight a dangerous monster to get to the them. long the process one of the members was lost.
So the remaining crew took the two half-bloods to Camp Half Blood. They recived a quest to find the lost member. So they asked the Obstle for the profecy of the quest. "Only 5 could come in this quest, one shall be lost, and one shall die by their parents hands". later on the book, they came across the junkjards of the Gods. In that junkyard a new creature raised, and a part of the profecy came alive.
At the end the remainign 4 troop faced one of the dangerous monster thay ever faced yet. it was released from its prison and the 4 worriors had to face it. in the fight they encountered a lost friends and a old enemy!
