Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Percy Jackson gets an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he will need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side, his trusty bronze sword Riptide, and...a ride from his mom.

The demigods rush to the rescue to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The titan lord Kronos has devised his most treacherous plot yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.

They're not the only ones in danger. An ancient monster has arisen — one rumored to be so powerful it could destroy Olympus — and Artemis, the only goddess who might know how to track it, is missing. Now Percy and his friends, along with the Hunters of Artemis, have only a week to find the kidnapped goddess and solve the mystery of the monster she was hunting.

Along the way, they must face their most dangerous challenge yet: the chilling prophecy of the titan's curse.

Review:

"High-powered action sequences, humorous transposition of Olympian legends to the modern day, and direct, unassuming narration remain big draws for fans of the series, who will enjoy imagining themselves in the young heroes' dilemmas — and will look forward to more." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"Riordan continues to enliven ancient mythology with wit, contemporary staging, and teenage heroics....All in all, a winner of Olympic proportions and a surefire read-aloud." School Library Journal

Review:

"Mixing humor with fantasy and rousing swordplay, this installment in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is a hero's epic quest reminiscent of cyberpunk science fiction or addictive videogames." VOYA

Synopsis:

In this third book of the acclaimed series, Percy and his friends are escorting two new half-bloods safely to camp when they are intercepted by a manticore and learn that the goddess Artemis has been kidnapped.

Synopsis:

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 monster that Artemis was hunting when she disappeared — a monster rumored to be so powerful it could destroy Olympus forever.

I love this series of books because Greek Mythology is something I know a lot about and the characters are fun and each one is different and there is humor as well as mythology and there is adventure (of course.) All in all this is an awesome third book.
