Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Book three of the Percy Jackson series

Publisher: Penguin

The third of Riordan's Percy Jackson series, this novel once more fuses ancient Greek legend with a twenty-first century American teenage school setting.

Percy and his friends are charged to deliver two new demigods (to Harry Potter fans, rather confusingly described as half-bloods) safely to school, but discover a plot to destroy Olympus.

Riordan's novel is funny, punchy and sometimes scary. It addresses serious issues such as identity, relationships and self-image while giving an unusual perspective on gender issues, as the gods and goddesses constantly claim superiority over each other.

An unusual take on fantasy, the graphic description and fast pace of this novel will attract those readers – particularly boys – who delight in gizmo-aided adventure and a cinematic approach to text.
