First, this happy Earth Day!

Second, look! I’m reviewing a book that isn’t an old favorite! Unfortunately, I read it about two weeks ago, so the question is, can I remember it properly? I can easily remember that Rick Riordan has written two previous books in this series, and that they come highly recommended for boys and reluctant readers. They center around Percy Jackson, a hero in the demi-god sense, and his friends, some of whom are also demi-gods, others of whom are cyclopes and satyrs.

The book, if I remember correctly — okay, I checked — starts with Percy and a couple of his friends going to check something out for the heads of the camp. The heads believe that there might be a couple of unknown half-bloods at a military-type school in upstate New York, and it turns out there are. However, things go a little bit wrong, and Artemis and her maidens end up saving their skins. Shortly thereafter, Annabeth disappears (one of Percy’s halfblood friends), and a quest is set up to go find them, including some of Artemis’s girls and some of the halfbloods. Will they be able to save her? And, well, what on earth is going on with the cow serpent thingy? Continue reading The Titan’s Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, book 3), by Rick Riordan
