Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia(daughter of Zeus) go to a school called Westover Hall from where Grover was calling them. He had found two half-bloods there, Nico and Bianca Di Angelo. All four of them try to take Nico and Bianca to Camp-Half Blood, however, they encounter a monster(a manticore) disguised as a teacher. The goddess Artemis and her Hunters come to help them and Bianca joins the Hunters. However, Annabeth is kidnapped by the manticore in the process. The half-bloods and Hunters return to Camp Half-Blood. They figure out that The Titan King, Kronos, who is the hated father of the gods and was defeated long ago by the gods is regaining power. He is using Luke, a former camper and son of Hermes to recruit half-bloods for his service. The goddess Artemis, is also captured. Zoe and Phoebe(two Hunters of Artemis), Bianca, Thalia, and Grover secretly followed by Percy, must find Artemis. Percy is soon discovered when he saves them from a Neamen Lion. After a long journey, Artemis and Annabeth are soon found. Atlas, the Titan general, forced Artemis to hold the weight of the world. After a long battle, the weight of the world is returned to Atlas. Artemis and Annabeth are also rescued.
What I like about this book is that a lot of new and important characters were introduced such as Nico and Bianca. I also like how there was more information given about the relationship between the gods and Titans. This book also had a lot of plot twists and character depth added. What I disliked about this book is that I feel as though more information could have been added about the Titan’s curse.

The third book in the Percy Jackson pentalogy series, The Titan’s Curse follows the now fourteen year old Percy Jackson as he attempts to rescue both his close friend Annabeth and the Greek goddess Artemis from the dangerous enemies who have kidnapped them. Like the Harry Potter series, as the characters mature, ao do their journeys and obstacles. The Titan’s Curse has a slightly darker tone, yet it doesn’t forget the heart that made the other previous books great. Riordan does a great job setting up the next books and keeps the reader hooked throughout. If you were a fan of the previous two, The Titan’s Curse is a definite read.

Much like the first two books in the series, the author weaves in humor and cultural references in unexpected places to keep the plot interesting. Even the smallest details of dialogue and description are carefully put together to achieve a balance of action and entertainment for the reader. Again, this is a masterful interpretation of Greek mythology, which in an amateur's hands could easily become overwhelming, but in this series keeps being interesting and relatable in the real world.
The young protagonist Percy Jackson continues on his third journey to the reaches of the mythological world, this time heading to California in his effort to save his friends from the clutches of escaped Titans. As he faces obstacles all over the country, he realizes the importance of valuing and treasuring friendships.
I'd recommend this book for anyone looking for a decent-length novel filled with literary humor and an entire mythological universe condensed into just a few hundred pages.

Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia are trying to recruit two children of Hades to join Camp Half Blood when a manticore appears and tries to kidnap them. The manticore is forced to retreat when Artemis arrives along with her Hunt, but he takes Annabeth with him. Before he retreated, however, he mentioned a stirring of monsters. Artemis interprets it to be the return of a monster capable of giving someone the power to destroy Olympus, the Ophiotaurus. Worried, she peruses the manticore alone in an attempt to hunt the Ophiotaurus. Once the Campers and Hunters return to Camp Half Blood, a disturbing new prophecy is delivered by the Oracle of Delphi. The questers must save Annabeth and Artemis, but most importantly prevent the Ophiotaurus from getting into the hands of the one Luke is working for.

Excellent continuation of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. While all books in the series are good standalone books, with at least one conflict being unique to that book, this is where the set-up for the final conflict starts. I enjoy this because it is fast paced, as well as having an overarching story-line that fits together perfectly.

It was a dam good book.

I really enjoyed the third installment of the Percy Jackson series as it introduced new characters and built up relationships. After getting attacked at a military school, Annabeth gets captured along with the goddess Artemis, creating an immediate quest in which Percy (with the help of the Hunters of Artemis), must save his stolen friend. The sacrifice made near the end of the story is one of my favorite moments within all of Rick Riordan's novels, and is part of what makes this book remarkable for me.

The Titan's Curse is the third instalment in the Percy Jackson and Olympians series by Rick Riordan. In this novel, combined with Annabeth Chase and new powerful friend Thalia Grace, Percy Jackson finds himself on a new quest with the balance of Olympus as they know it at stake. I really liked seeing the contrast between Percy and Thalia as they are very similar characters. Both of them have their internal struggle of what kind of hero they want to be and are willing to go to great lengths to save their friends. The whole storyline with Zoe Nightshade really was one of the best parts of the novel for me and I'm sad to see her go. One of my few criticisms of this book was I wished the events leading up to this summer were expanded more on. Overall, I really enjoyed rereading it and look forward to seeing Nico grow as a character. 4 Stars @Ruby_Tuesday of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Rick Riordian is a GENIUS! I love his PJ series, it's epic! If you like this one, also try The Heroes of Olympus, and The Trials of Apollo - both are pretty good (although I like HoO better than ToA).
Seriously, though, Rick Riordian Is. A. Genius.

Grover was sniffing the wind, looking nervous. He fished out his acorns and threw them into the sand, then played his pipes. They rearranged themselves in a pattern that made no sense to me, but Grover looked concerned.

Grover: "That's us. Those five nuts right there."
Percy: "Which one is me?"
Zoe: "The little deformed one."
Percy: "Oh, shut up."

Aphrodite: "Love conquers all. 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?"

Zoe: "Let us find the dam snack bar. We should eat while we can."
Grover (smiling): "The dam snack bar?"
Zoe: "Yes. What is funny?"
Grover: "Nothing. I could use some dam french fries."
Thalia: "And I need to use the dam restroom."
...

I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in.

Zoe: "I do not understand."
Grover: "I want to use the dam water fountain."
Thalia: "And...I want to buy a dam t-shirt."

Annabeth has been captured and Percy goes on a quest with Bianca (daughter of hades) and the hunters of Artemis and Thalia (daughter of Zeus) to find her

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 27, 2012

Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia are sent to rescue two half-bloods, Bianca and Nico Di-Angelo. While on this mission, they are attacked by a manticore, but are saved by the Hunters of Artemis. Annabeth is taken captive when the manticore flees. The Hunters, Percy, Thalia, and Grover are sent to camp by Artemis and Apollo. Artemis is soon taken captive and a quest is issued. Grover, Thalia, Bianca and Zoë Nightshade, Artemis's lieutenant, go to rescue Artemis. Percy follows and soon joins the quest. Bianca is killed while facing an automaton. They learn that the Titan Atlas has escaped and was behind the kidnapping of Artemis. Atlas is defeated and returned to holding the sky, but Zoe is killed by Atlas who is her father. Thalia replaces Zoë as Artemis' lieutenant during the gods' summit. Thalia's induction as a lieutenant of Artemis ensures that she never reaches 16, thus escaping the prophecy but leaving Percy as the only one who can fulfill it. They return to camp and Percy informs Nico about Bianca's death. He blames Percy, accusing him of failing to protect her and runs away. Percy learns that the underworld god, Hades, is Nico's father.

In this extremely cool 3rd book of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. there were lots of surprises. There were lots of fighting and story. This was one of my favorite book of series. There was many Bad obstacles but they overcame them all. in this book, Percy, Annabeth,Thilia and Grover goes to a military school to look for two half-bloods! these half-boods are very strong. When they found the two half-bloods, they found out that they werent the only "people" looking for them. The two half-bloods was brother and sister. They had to fight a dangerous monster to get to the them. long the process one of the members was lost.
So the remaining crew took the two half-bloods to Camp Half Blood. They recived a quest to find the lost member. So they asked the Obstle for the profecy of the quest. "Only 5 could come in this quest, one shall be lost, and one shall die by their parents hands". later on the book, they came across the junkjards of the Gods. In that junkyard a new creature raised, and a part of the profecy came alive.
At the end the remainign 4 troop faced one of the dangerous monster thay ever faced yet. it was released from its prison and the 4 worriors had to face it. in the fight they encountered a lost friends and a old enemy!
