The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

Summary:
When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he’ll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and…a ride from his mom.
The demigods race to the rescue, to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that’s not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.
Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge so far: the chilling prophecy of Titan’s curse.
The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3)Review:
I am sad to say that this has been my least favorite of the series so far. While I enjoyed the story, as per usual, the characters just annoyed me. The Titan’s Curse was fast paced and exciting. We got to see new gods and other various mythological creatures and players. I really enjoyed this aspect of the story. I love the way Riordan teaches about mythology and makes it fun. Some myths can be so dry and boring, but Riordan makes it interesting and exciting.
As for the characters, I loved all the usual ones. Percy was the same lovable doofus as always. He’s brave and loyal, caring and thoughtful. He’s such a great hero. Grover was also the same as usual. Helpful and underrated. He’s the best friend Percy could ask for. Annabeth was sadly missing for most of the story and honestly, that’s probably why I didn’t like this one as much as the others. She’s definitely my favorite character in this series. Then there’s Thalia. I was so excited when she turned back into a person, but she was really rude to Percy and I did not like that at all. I really wanted to like her but she was so mean and I just couldn’t. I really hope she changes in the next book.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I cannot wait to get into the next in the series. Rick Riordan really knows how to make me love some characters and how to send them on some wild adventures.

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

  1. Every time I see a post about one of the Percy Jackson books, I’m ashamed I STILL haven’t finished the first series.🙈but at the same time, each time I see a post, I want to finish them! Great review!

      1. If I remember correctly, all I have left to read in the OG series is the final book…but it’s been SO LONG that I’d probs have to re-read all of them, and who has the time. LOL My TBR is long af as it is.🙈

              1. I’ve caved for the last two years (and cringed at the price) and did an Audible Yearly Subscription. I freaking love it, and listen to books all the time.

                    1. It’s tough with the library because they might not have what you’re looking for or the hold lines are forever sometimes. But I can always manage to find something to listen to even if it’s not what I started looking for. But for those without good libraries, I’m sure it’s worth it!

                    2. I haven’t even checked out my libraries audiobook selection 🙈 I probably should.
                      I just love the audible productions, they feel more like movies in my head versus someone just reading the book. Granted my experience with audiobooks prior to audible was seriously limited, so that comparison could be WAY off base. 🙈
