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.
Oh. My. Gods. I love this book! The Titan’s Curse is definitely my second favorite on the series (my first favorite is The Lightning Thief). I’m not sure if I’ve mention this before but I’m inlove with this series so much. And can I just say that Rick Riordan is one of the coolest author ever stepped on this planet.
Like in first and second book, The Titan’s Curse is just the right amount of everything. Full of action, cool and funny dialogues which is enough to make you crack on your seat and of course, twists and turns that will leave you breathless! It’s perfectly paced and I’m sure if you enjoyed the first and second one, you’ll love this one too!
Do I need to say more?
One of the things why I’m always excited in reading this book, is because I know that Rick will throw new characters into the scene again. And I was correct! Rick perfectly introduced them one by one. Ever since I’ve read about Thalia on the first book, I’ve always got intrigued by her and in this book, Rick highlighted Thalia’s personality pretty well and I ended up liking her. She’s as funny, sarcastic and tough as Percy.
The adventure of course is my favorite part in the story as well as Percy’s growing feelings toward Annabeth. I’m just really, really excited for them.
The difference of this book from the first two? The Titan’s Curse is definitely darker than first two with more mysterious aura. I don’t want to give out anything so I’ll just leave you with that.
My favorite character aside from Percy and his gang? Zoe Nightshade. I didn’t like her in the first few chapters. I thought she was too uptight but after I’ve finished reading the book, I knew she’s really something. She’s very elegant but tough as well. I adore her firm belief and faith to her own principles and her loyalty towards Lady Artemis.
I recommend this just because it’s very entertaining and such a fantastic read.
