Percy jackson and the titans curse book review
Review: Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan | Books | The GuardianIn the third installment of the Percy Jackson series the pace slows down as backstories are revealed and a dark evil rises. It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore half human, half lion , which in itself isn't ideal… But with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious…. At times the story can feel like it is dragging a little and some younger readers' attention may waiver but the payback is worth it as Rick Riordan takes the story and the characters to a whole new depth and level that is fresh to the Olympian series. There is a similar start to the second book as Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from Grover and brings his demigod friends Annabeth, Thalia and his mother along for the ride. After confronting several monsters they discover two new demi-gods with a mysterious past but with no clue as to who they are descended from. After a narrow escape they discover the Hunters Of Artemis and that the goddess herself is missing, stolen by a monster so evil it threatens the very existence of Olympus. This is particularly true with Percy, who previously made rash and unjustified decisions without considering the consequences.

Books by Rick Riordan
Ancient Greek mythology must be one of the most richly mined seams in the arts. The Romans liked the deities so much they bought the assembled company. Everyone from painters to poets has interpreted, reinterpreted, borrowed, distorted and generally plundered the immortals, half-gods and mere mortals who suffered as pawns in the gods' endless games, not forgetting the menagerie of fantastical monsters they all faced. Our language is littered with references to these familiar tales: the Midas touch, the sword of Damocles, a Sisyphean task, an Achilles heel, a Trojan horse. And such stories have been firm favourites with children too. Many of us were brought up on a staple diet of Sinbad and other movies of that ilk, with Ray Harryhausen's glorious stop-frame animation monsters somehow more frightening and more monstery than their computer-generated counterparts. Then there were Roger Lancelyn Green's retellings of these myths and legends, and mesmerising tales such as CS Lewis's short story "Forms of Things Unknown", which had Gorgons on the moon.
Old School Wednesdays is a weekly Book Smuggler feature. We came up with the idea towards the end of , when both Ana and Thea were feeling exhausted from the never-ending inundation of New and Shiny and often over-hyped books. What better way to snap out of a reading fugue than to take a mini-vacation into the past? Logo designed by the wonderful KMont. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster.
