I think these books are just fun fluff. The adventures don't seem to matter to the series until the very end. This book left a lot of loose ends to be wrapped up by the last two installments.

The SEA OF MONSTERS ended with a bang, with another child of the three gods emerging from the tree guarding Camp Half-Blood. Percy Jackson now has his hands full in THE TITAN'S CURSE, the third volume of the series.

When he answers an urgent call from his best friend, Grover, at a school in Maine, unexplainable things start happening. Grover has found two more half-bloods, who are siblings, but the assistant principal is a powerful monster in disguise. Grover will never get the half-bloods to camp without help. Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia set off for Maine to help Grover, but don't realize that they're walking into a trap.

Dr. Thorn, the assistant principal, has some tricks up his sleeve. When Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt, arrives, things get out of hand. Dr. Thorn falls off a cliff with Annabeth. Artemis goes after her and everyone else returns to Camp Half-Blood. Here, they try to act as normal as possible, but two camper's dreams indicate severe trouble with both Artemis and Annabeth.

The Oracle speaks and five campers must find and bring back Artemis before the Winter Solstice. For the first time, Percy remains behind, but not by choice, and not for long. When Percy meets up with the group, the enemies start showing themselves--and the race to reach Artemis and Annabeth alive becomes more crucial. Can Percy save both them before the Winter Solstice?

THE TITAN'S CURSE leaves the reader hanging, waiting for several important questions to be answered in the final two books of the series. This fast-paced novel, along with the action, makes it a great series for fantasy lovers, reluctant readers, and anyone looking for a good story.

This is a fantastic series. This book, Book 3, is the "Prisoner of Azkhaban" of this series. All of a sudden things get a bit darker and the quests become a lot more dangerous. Riordan continues to cleverly mix Roman/Greek gods and myths into his stories. This series has been great, but this book in particular really cemented this series into "classic" status.

I am so looking forward to reading the next two books in this series, but I am not looking forward to finishing the series.

I have to admit that I did think of putting this book down several times because I would get so annoyed with the characters in it. I know this is written for kids, but having gods who are thousands of years old all act like children gets to be too much after awhile.

Granted, there were parts where the story is not bad at all, and I'm mostly reading this series in case it does well enough that they make more than one movie, but any older reader should take it for what it is: an author's need to get into this genre's niche. (Apparently his mystery series wasn't making him enough money or getting him enough popularity.)

Great book.

Getting better. The story is still very predictable, but now the characters have something like real feelings, not just angst. I still enjoyed it. It is a fun little read targeted at children.

These books are a lot of fun...even for adults to read. I liked this better than the first, but #2 is still my favorite.
