** spoiler alert ** An incredible book! Bianca and Nico were wonderful new characters. Zoe is a new favorite of mine. If only she didn't die at the end. I can't look at stars without thinking of her death. I really like Thalia but I think she was sort of a coward to become an immortal Hunter the day before her 16th birthday so that she can dodge the prophecy. Oh well. I wish more Annabeth was included. Artemis and Apollo were brilliant inclusions. Meeting Athena, my favorite Greek deity, was cool. All in all, one of my favorite books.

“Ever had a flying burrito hit you? Well, it's a deadly projectile, right up there with cannonballs and grenades.”
Rick Riordan, The Titan's Curse

Rick Riordan
“In a way, it's nice to know that there are Greek gods out there, because you have somebody to blame when things go wrong. For instance, when you're walking away from a bus that's just been attacked by monster hags and blown up by lightning, and it's raining on top of everything else, most people might think that's just really bad luck; when you're a half-blood, you understand that some devine force is really trying to mess up your day.”
Rick Riordan, The Titan's Curse

“She said this in the same way you might say Fields of Punishment or Hades's gym shorts.”

“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.”

“Love conquers all," Aphrodite promised. "Look at Helen and Paris. Did they let anything come between them?"
"Didn't they start the Trojan War and get thousands of people killed?"
"Pfft. That's not the point. Follow your heart.”

“He cleared his throat and held up one hand dramatically.
“Green grass breaks through snow.
Artemis pleads for my help.
I am so cool.”

He grinned at us, waiting for applause.
"That last line was four syllables.” Artemis said.
Apollo frowned. “Was it?”
“Yes. What about I am so bigheaded?”
“No, no, that’s six syllable, hhhm.” He started muttering to himself.
Zoe Nightshade turned to us. “Lord Apollo has been going through this haiku phase ever since he visited Japan. Tis not as bad as the time he visited Limerick. If I’d had to hear one more poem that started with, There once was a godess from Sparta-"
“I’ve got it!” Apollo announced. “I am so awesome. That’s five syllables!” He bowed, looking very pleased with himself.”

Juliana mark this as a spoiler, sasu. It's got a few in there...


Karen Thalia Is NOT a coward! there are plenty of reasons she wouldn’t want to be a hunter, but she sacrificed that so there would be one less risk of Olympus crumbling. She knew she was seriously tempted and was ashamed of it, and she didn’t want to take the risk. She trusted Percy to make the right decision and so she made a wise choice lol : ] but I was really disappointed that she became one of them hunters. Darn, she was my favorite character…


Amira I also love Thalia but I also think she was a coward to become a huntress before her 16th birthday so that she could dodge the prophecy.Overall I really liked the book but I see myself not liking Bianca for letting go of her brother.


Steph Hahahah Apollo, he was seriously cool ^_^
