This terrific YA series by mystery writer Rick Riordan revamps Greek mythology in a fun, fresh way kids find absolutely enthralling. Percy Jackson is a trouble-prone teenager with attention deficit disorder and dyslexia. He's also the half-blood son of Poseidon (yes, ithat/i Poseidon!), one of 12 Olympian gods making mischief right here in 21st-century America. Riordan rat ...more

I have yet to be disappointed in this series. A real rarity in a fantasy series in general.

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

Let me open by saying...Rick Riordan, I'm sorry for what I'm about to say. I'm an unpublished writer and I know the best I can hope for is that at some point some will like what I write, and some will well, rip it.

I've not been "real complimentary' of these books up to this point, I gave each 3 stars...said they were what I'd call, "not bad". I dropped this one to 2 stars...it's getting to "bad".

First, I must say apologetically that the writing isn't all that great. I know these have sold millio

SO glad that I'm continuing on with this series! This book was fast paced and (in my opinion) way better than Sea of Monsters. I can't wait to read the next book soon!

Percy Jackson is back... and Annabelle is missing! Grover, Thalia, and Percy must team up with the Hunters (Artemis' immortal virgin maidens) to find Annabelle and Artemis. If only Grover didn't spend all of his time mooning of the Hunters and guzzling coffee... If only Thalia, daughter of the god of the sky, wasn't afraid of heights... If only the Hunters didn't despise Percy just because he's a guy... oh yeah. This quest is going to be just great.

This was a delightfully funny installment to Ri

Having celebrity parents is a double-edged sword. And when they happen to be temperamental IMMORTAL Greek Gods...it’s a whole new ball game.

Artemis, The Goddess of The Hunt is M.I.A. and Annabeth, Percy’s “good friend” and fellow half-blood is missing AND in grave danger. Two new undetermined and powerful half-bloods, Bianca and Nico di Angelo have made an appearance. Luke and his dastardly plans of resurrecting Kronos are in full swing but now he seems to have an even more chilling ordeal set u

This. I like. Me likee very much, thank you. I'm doing a marathon read of this series this year (although I've paused for some Skulduggery Pleasant because I have reading ADD...I relate to Percy) and I'm really getting enthused! First two books started a bit rocky with me. I wasn't ever wowed. And while I'm still waiting for crushing feels (I think that'll coming in the next Heroes of Olympus series more so than this one?) I'm starting to LOVE AND ADORE THESE BOOKS.

So much epicness.

This morning, while waiting with Celyn at her hospital appointment I told her I was going to write a review of the book I finished reading to her the night before and asked her if it deserved 5*. She said it did. So 5* it is.

I picked this book up from Celyn's pile when we went off on her school trip (a week in the wilds) and being in a hurry I managed to get book 3 of the series rather than book 2 (we read book 1 last year). So we've jumped over The Sea of Monsters - but I don't think the readin

This series is so great! I love to read from Percy's point of view, it's hilarious! And I can't wait to find out what happens!! I mean, Nico! And that last scene! And I want something to happen between Percy and Annabeth!

Even though this series is considered middle-grade litterature, I think it can be enjoyed by all people in all ages. Pick it up, if you want to read something relaxing and not too serious! ;-)

Ah...so this was okay. As an adult, I'm starting to weary of this series, though my 10 year old son loved all five books when he read them independently.

Unfortunately, this book is a carbon copy of the last book, The Sea of Monsters, which is essentially a carbon copy of the first book,The Lightning Thief, and perhaps that is the problem. Like the first two books, I read this aloud to my kids. We took a small break from reading (about a week), and upon resuming the story I kept confusing this bo

Really this series has thus far been very dependable. I wasn't let down by The Titan's Curse at all and for an in between book it was very entertaining.

Mission: Save the goddess Artemis, Annabeth, and find a deadly creature that could possibly destroy Olympus.

The Team: Percy (obviously), Grover (wouldn't have it any other way), Thalia (inevitable), and two huntresses called Zoe and Bianca.

It's just as funny as the other two and still full of action. The hints in this book are a bit more subtle

Got my 10 yr-old friend to read the series and he's enjoying them as much as I did. He read book 2 over one week during winter vacation! We're having a great time discussing the story and even some of the deeper concepts. If you haven't picked them up, do it!

For now, my second in the series, first being The Sea of monsters.

Even though I wish Annabeth was more in it, I liked most of the new characters we were introduced to. Can't wait to start book 4.

Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!*
Finished re-reading this (again)! This one has always kind of been my least favorite of the series––but obviously, from my rating, you can see that I still love it. I guess I'm less enthusiastic about this one because there's barely any Annabeth in it, and I adore her ... but anyway. I feel like in this one, the series starts taking on a bit of a darker and more mature tone. More bad stuff happens, more people die, etc. A lot of new characters are introduced––most importantly Thalia and Nico, ya ...more

"Only a dream, but I was sure of two things: Annabeth was in terrible danger. And Luke was responsible."

Olympus is above the Empire State Building, Hades' Castle is under Hollywood, Sea of Monsters is the Bermuda Triangle, How about the Mount Othrys? Mount Othrys was the base of the Titans during the ten year war with the Olympian Gods. It is located in Mt Tamalpais, San Francisco, where you can see Atlas carrying the heaven.

I must confess that this middle book in the Percy Jackson series is not one of my favourites. I like it a lot as far as it fits into the world of the Percy Jackson series, however I don't like it as much as the previous two books. There are reasons for this which I will explain. That all said, the entire series is quality children's literature, among the finest in my opinion. They get kids reading and they get them learning about Greek mythology. I definitely think that's better than having them

7/10

Whilst this was an enjoyable read it felt like nothing new was added to the series. Rick Riordan found a formula that worked and made him money so he's sticking to it but who am I to judge! After all it does work and if it wasn't the 3rd in the series this would be rated higher. However, this is the 3rd in the series and feels like its old ground already been covered.

This was the first time in the series that I actually felt too mature for the series at points. I know it's aimed at a younger

If I could, I'd give this book 2 1/2 stars.

I don't know if there's just "too much of the same" as the series progresses, but I just didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two.

The first book did a good job of not making Percy Jackson too Harry Potter-esque, especially by having Percy understand the importance of keeping Chiron apprised of all relevant dreams and information. The second book started to falter in this regard, and now the third book has Percy Jackson inexplicably and annoyingl

When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now it's up to Percy and his friends to find out what happened. Who is powerful enough to kidnap a goddess? They must find Artemis before the winter solstice, when her influence on the Olympian Council could swing an important vote on the war with the titans. Not only that, but first Percy will have to solve the mystery of a rare monste

If I could sum up this whole book with one word: Wow.

The characters were amazing. The writing was fantastic. The action scenes were so epic. The humor was off-the-charts. The feels were very much there. I loved it. It was so amazing.

This series just gets better and better. It's very impressive, and this book was flawlessly executed.
midnightfaerie
Much like the first two books, are getting to know our favorite characters a little more deeply and learning to love some new ones. The story line has lots of fun action, that keeps you involved and engaged and wanting to turn the page. And my favorite aspect again, is the educational value this book has. I had forgotten just how much there was to the mythology behind the stories. Not something I'd ever read again as an adult, unless I was reading it to my kids, which very well may happen. But a ...more

I LOVED THIS BOOK SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH, I REGRET NOT READING IT ANY SOONER.
Daniel Solera
The only reason I continued with this series is because I paid money for the first three. The Titan’s Curse continues the Percy Jackson series, ushering the characters into another round of frantic encounters with silly derivations of ancient Greek mythologies. To Rick Riordan’s credit, he has proven to be a remarkably consistent author, using the same tired similes and uninspired visual cues.

There is little else to note in this review that hasn’t already been said in those I wrote for the first

A completly better book, more good drama, less stupid conversations.
Anyway I'm still waiting for Kronos! Come to me!




MUY BIEN! este libro si me impresiono,lo leí muy rápido y los últimos capítulos estuvieron bastante bien, me encantaron los nuevos dioses (ARTEMISA Y APOLO) y las cazadoras. La historia definitivamente creció con esta continuación. Y va tomando un poco mas de madurez, no mucha per

OMG the Titan Kronos is rising! Yes, that is a bad thing... since he's practically trying to take over the world and what not. Okay, maybe I was exagerating a bit. But isnt that just as bad as overthrowing Zeus and the rest of the gods and replacing them with a whole bunch of demigods (including Luke the evil, lol) and having Kronos as the leader? Well it is, since Olympus moves around and happens to be over New York.

Actual rating: 4.5

And now, a haiku:
This book was awesome,
really love Rick Riordan,
I am so awesome.


Even though I wouldn't put these books among my favourites (even though I am loving them), I could definitely say Rick Riordan is one of my new favourite authors. His writing is simple, but it's so funny. There is literally never a dull moment in these books, and I never really laugh out loud at things in books - well, not often anyway. Most of the time I'm crying.

ANYWAY.

I LOVED this one. THE ENDING

Oh my!! These books just get better and better!!!! I loved this one so much!!! The plot,Thalia,Nico,Zoe..the Hunters, the Annabeth/Percy scenes!! UGhhh just adore it!!! <333 This book is so good!! Usually by book 2 i'm too bored to read the third book in a trilogy,but now, after reading book 3,i can't wait to read the fourth book!!! They're THAT good!!! :D I just can't get bored with Rick Riordan!!! He's a masterpiece maker!! :D

This was a much darker and more mysterious piece than the first two in the series. Percy is growing up, and his life and his friends' lives are all changing. I liked how Mr. Riordan brought in Lady Artemis and the Hunters; it adds flavor to the plot and also provides a very poignant but realistic subplot. One of my favorite characters starting from this book onward was Zoe Nightshade; I could see how Mr. Riordan, despite her many layers, could still display the deepness of her character and show ...more

“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.”
