This book is my favourite of the PJO series. It’s so funny and I love the new characters it includes (Bianca and Nico is Angelo, Artemis, Thalia etc.)

Anyone who has read the first two books will be happy to know that Rick Riordan has done it again in The Titan's Curse! This book is especially thrilling as more characters such as Bianca and Nico Di Angelo are woven into the series as Percy and crew go on another quest to save their friend and the goddess in chains... With the perfect amount of sadness, humour and adventure, this book is another great example of the amazing Percy Jackson series. I would recommend this book to anyone who has already started the series (because you can't stop reading halfway through) and anyone else who is looking for an action-packed adventure to keep them entertained- although I suggest reading The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters first.

Oh my goodness!! I knew Hades would have a child pop up at some point in the books (two kids at that!), I just didn't know when! So awesome and it completed blind slides me on the way Rick wrote it into the story line. Can't wait to start the next book in the series tomorrow!

The Percy Jackson series were one of the first books I've ever fallen in love with. I adored all of the characters. For some reason, this book stood out to me the most. Perhaps it's because, being the third book, the characters have matured a bit and we all grow to understand them individually. There is something about Rick Riordan's writing that makes you feel like a kid in some parts of the book, but also an adult when it comes to mature scenes. I can't even describe how much I love these books. I almost never cry when it comes to books or movies, but I did for these series while I was reading the last book. Always will be a fan!

This book is based on Greek mythology and is the third book of the Percy Jackson series. Percy Jackson is a son of a Greek God and the story is mainly about him. So many new things happen in this book and I was amazed and loved this book. I also loved the new characters we got to meet in the book as well. I fell in love with so many of them and they were easy to relate to. I love this series and have read it multiple times as well. An extraordinary thing about this book is that I was never bored and was hooked from the first page. This book is totally appropriate and anyone can read it. I would personally recommend it to kids aged 10-16. I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The other child is back.  The child of Zeus, Thalia, who got turned into a pine tree years before.  An all powerful goddess has been captured and without her, the Winter Solstice won't commence.  It's up to the campers and another group of people at the camp to cooperate together to save the goddess.  Also, possibly, a child of the Big Three is about to turn 16.  Is she the child of the Great Prophecy? 5 Stars

For a while, I was a bit confused with why there was five books when Percy had only aged four years. But then I realized that this book happened during the winter, the time Percy would regularly be at school, and not at camp as he would have been at during the summer. However, it may have taken me a while to notice this. In this book, we learn about many new factors and parts of the Greek Mythology world that have not yet been known to us. For instance, if Artemis didn't have children, what was the next closest thing? Also, who is this titan that has been cursed upon, as the title indicates? Readers should enjoy this book as much as any other story by the same author.

After reading the first two books of the series, “The Titan's Curse” didn’t fail to disappoint me. Reading the whole series, Rick Riordan’s writing just keeps getting better and better. “The Titan’s Curse” is filled with adventure, fighting, fantasy, and more Greek mythology. The characters have so much personality and I could really feel the character development throughout each book. One thing I really like about “The Titan’s Curse” is the plot twist at the end. It was above and beyond. All of the “Percy Jackson and The Olympians” books had an amazing ending that made you want to continue to read the next book. “The Titan's Curse” introduces many more characters and the pace is fast enough to keep you fascinated by the book. I would rate this book a solid 5/5 stars.

This series is one of the best I've ever read, and I totally ship Percabeth. I've always loved Greek myths, and Rick Riordan found a way to bring them into modern society. The Titans Curse makes me want to become one of Artemis' hunters!

"Let us find the dam snack bar," Zoe said. Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?" Zoe blinked."Yes. What is funny?" "Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries." Even Thalia smiled at that. " And I need to use the dam restroom." Maybe it was the fact that we were so tired and strung out emotionally, but I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at us." I do not understand." " I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said. " And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath." 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!
