Student Review: The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan

The Titan’s Curse is a book about Percy Jackson and the Gods of Olympus. The book starts during a winter storm while Percy’s mom drives him, Annabeth, and Thalia to Westover Hall to meet their friend Grover who has found two demigods Bianca Di Angelo age 12 and Nico Di Angelo age 10 but there is a manticore at the school, Mr. Thorn. And there is also a dance going on at the school, and while the dance is going on Mr. Thorn takes the Di Angelos out of the gym where the dance is being held, and Percy follows. As Percy catches up with the Di Angelos,  Mr. Thorn takes him by surprise and captures him. Afterward, Thorn takes Percy, Nico, and Bianca outside, and while Thorn is taking them Percy calls for help by using his empathy link with Grover. A little bit afterward Grover, Annabeth, Thalia, and the Hunters of Artemis that popped out of the woods along with Artemis start attacking the manticore. After the fight, Thorn escapes by jumping off the cliff taking Annabeth with him and mysteriously disappearing out of nowhere. After that, Percy, his friends, and the Hunters of Artemis go back to camp half blood while Artemis goes off to hunt an ancient monster. Once Percy, his friends, and the Hunters of Artemis get back, they get a quest from the Oracle Of Delphi and she says:

“Five shall go west to the goddess in chains,
One shall be lost in the land without rain,
The bane of Olympus shows the trail,
Campers and Hunters combined prevail,
The Titan’s curse must one withstand,
And one shall perish by a parent’s hand.”

Afterward, Percy and company leave on their heroic quest.
The third book in the Percy Jackson series captivates the reader and keeps them on the edge of their seat, making them want to read more and more. This book series is about adventure and friendship. It is also like Rick Riordan’s other book series: the Red Pyramid series in which the Kanes try to save the world and their father from the evil egyptian god Set. The Percy Jackson series is also like the Lorien Legacies series in which John the main character must save his home planet Lorien and Earth with help from his friends and by using his legacies. In that way he is like Percy Jackson who must save the world with help from his friends and the powers he got from being Poseidon’s son, and he must also bear the weight of the prophecy that will decide the fate of Olympus. So, in conclusion, the Titan’s Curse is a continuation of the Percy Jackson series and is an excellent read.
