5.0 out of 5 stars Percy Jackson continues to delight, May 14, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 3) (Hardcover)
The latest Percy Jackson and the Olympians continues to tell a wonderful story of children of Olypmic gods and goddesses dealing with not only this world, but interacting with the gods themselves. Forces of the Titan Kronos, are gaining power. The are amassing an army of Titans, monsters, and half-bloods to overthrow Zeus and the Olympians. And they are going to start at Camp Halfblood - Percy, Annabeth, Thalia, and Grover find Artemis, and her band of maidens to help them. Artemis is captured, (and Annabeth is missing) and the kids have to rescue her and get Artemis to the winter solstice. They have to cross the country to San Francisco to find her - with the gods' help, statues come to life, pegasus like horses are at their command, and all show their courage against the evil ones trying to take control.
This is not a stand alone book, and knowledge of mythology helps to keep gods and characters clear - Look the characters up on the Internet, or a mythology book to know more about them and what they mean to the story.
The series is a delight to read, and while it is aimed at young folks, it, like the Harry Potter books that also were aimed to young ones, have caught adults' attentions too.
We glimpse at what the next adventure will be, and am sure it will be just as great as the first three books.
