Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Titans Curse, A Review

Today I'm here to give you a review of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Titans Curse. This is the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympian books, and as the series goes on the books continuously get better. This book was no exception, and because of it I probably finished it in about three hours. I would say that the first and last books are the longest, followed by this book and the fourth book. The second book is the shortest, easily. I've written about the first book here, and the second book here. 

Like the previous two books in the series, we start off the book with Percy, Annabeth, and this time Thalia. The book begins with Grover sending a distress call to Percy -- he's found two new half-bloods, who's parents are unknown. They're in a school, guarded by a monster (of course). It's their job to help save the two half-bloods and guide them to safety at Camp Half-Blood, but like most other times things start to go wrong. Except this time, it's a trap from Kronos that begins the peril in the book, not just a fight against a monster. When they try and save the half-bloods, Annabeth goes missing during the fight, and the others have to find her. 

This book not only introduces us to two new important half-bloods, but also a group known as the Huntresses, led by Artemis. After the fight when Annabeth goes missing, Artemis feels as if she knows the scent of the monster that took her, and decides to go after her...alone. Artemis ends up falling in the trap that Kronos set as well, so now Annabeth and Artemis are missing. The Huntresses, Thalia, Grover, Tyson, and Percy must set out to go and find both Annabeth and Artemis, and hopefully stop Kronos in the process. 

A lot of this book is focused on character development, not only of the main characters, but also of some side characters in the book as well. Although you don't see why the character development is necessary right now, you will if you continue along with the series. The quest in this book kind of dragged a little bit, and I struggled at times to hold my interest, but I still found it to be very intriguing. Although this book felt as if it took me longer to get through then the others, I would still give it a 5/5. I really did love this book and would suggest it to anyone.
