Percy Jackson: The Titan's Curse

Percy Jackson: The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

Release Date: May 1st 2007
Publisher: Disney Press
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 320

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.
There were so many things happening in this book, that it was sometimes difficult to guess what was going to happen. When the Oracle recited the prophecy of saving Artemis, like many of the characters, I thought it meant one thing, when it meant something entirely different. This book was one that I couldn’t put down because I had to know what happened.

It is in this book that the relationship between Percy and Annabeth really starts to become apparent. For anyone who knows anything of stories revolving between two characters, one male, one female, know that they will probably end up together. While this story is not surprising in that fact, it is fun to see how they slowly decide how they feel about each other.

While the other books before this one basically set up the story line and introduced vital characters, this book starts to center on the war against Kronos. Readers learn more about how Kronos is affecting the world around him.

We also get to meet more mythological characters like Atlas and Calypso. My favorite group is the Hunters of Artemis, who bring their own personal twist in the story which become vital in the other books later on. This series has easily become one of my favorites.
