The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #03)by Rick Riordan
The Titan's Curse is the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and Riordan is still going strong. The goddess Artemis is missing, and Percy and his friends have little time to rescue her. This time, Annabeth gets a little extra help from her human dad, which makes for a fun story that leaves you wanting more.
Percy Jackson is not normal. He's got ADHD and attention deficit, and he's been kicked out of every school he's ever attended. Now he discovers he's a half blood: half human, half Olympian god. But his problems are only beginning. Someone has stolen Zeus's thunderbolt — and Percy's being blamed.
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"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
"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)
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.
When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now its 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.
