Percy Jackson & the Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan

Ok guys, now that I'm back up at school things are going to go a bit slower. Now I won't be flying through books like I normally would be. But anyways, I was finally able to get my hands on the rest of the Percy Jackson series, so the next three reviews will most likely be about those. I was also able to get my hands on #1 and #2 of the Mortal Instruments series so the next two will prolly be about those. So, without further ado....
Paperback, 312 pages
Published April 8th 2008 
Hyperion
Fantasy, Adventure
#3 in the Percy Jackson series
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.
I must admit I've been waiting a while to read this. I'm finally getting to it and I am very EXCITED :)
Letting the pages of the story "Take me Away"

*Review* (warning contains minor spoilers)

This book was sooo good. One thing I LOVED was the addition of new characters- gods, demigods, and monsters alike. With each one, I learned something else. The one I loved the most was meeting Aphrodite. She was exactly the way I pictured her to be and her purpose of coming to spice up Percy's love life made me like her even more. I love the fact that she is giving him a challenge too lol. Because of this, one of my favorite parts of the book was when Percy, Thalia, and Annabeth go to Olympus and meet Grover there with the creature and all the gods are there for the winter solstice. Another thing I loved was Riordan's signature twists and turns of adventure. The book surprised me on almost every page. From finding out that Zoe, Bianca, and Nico were actually the son and daughters of different gods, to finding out that the girl Rachel was mortal but could still see through The Mist, I was continuously staring open mouthed at the pages. The last thing I liked, was of course, the witty language. I laughed throughout the whole story. Now for what I did not like was the way Athena treated Percy, whether it be the truth or not. And I did not like the fact that even though his love life did come up, it did not go into too much detail and did not give us too much insight. But I guess that's why there's the rest of the series lol Looks like I'll be starting the next one TONIGHT :)
Overall, I give this **** (4 out of 5)
