The story starts out with Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia trying to help Grover to sneak out two half bloods from a private military style school Things get immediately messy and they stumble upon yet another problem, orlike a crisis In the process of a battle Annabeth is stolen away Something called The General is out again wrecking havoc and as you can already tell Luke has a hand in all this This time around though you see Luke for what he really is, a kid trying to play with the big boys We get to see the goddess Artemis and her huntresses Quite an intriguing bunch, eternal life if you don t fall in love Kind of harsh, but I guess the price you pay matches your reward The second in command of the huntresses, Zoe, would have to be my favorite new character She s prickly but you learn throughout the book why she is the way she is Bianca and Nico are the new half bloods and will prove to play important roles in how the plot moves along.
It never fails to impress me how the author can intricately put everything into these books I never feel bored and I love the view he takes on different mythology stories After reading this book I ll never look at Hercules the same One of my biggest enjoyments is seeing different American landmarks mentioned in the story, and seeing their odd connection to the Greek myths You can tell the books are going to take a bit of a darker turn It makes sense since they all are getting older and the inevitable prophecy is looming over.
Always funny, fast paced, and having hidden fountains of mysteries I am SO ready for This morning, while waiting with Celyn at her hospital appointment I told her I was going to write a review of the book I finished reading to her the night before and asked her if it deserved 5 She said it did So 5 it is.
I picked this book up from Celyn s pile when we went off on her school trip a week in the wilds and being in a hurry I managed to get book 3 of the series rather than book 2 we read book 1 last year So we ve jumped over The Sea of Monsters but I don t think the reading experience suffered for it.
The short version is if you enjoyed The Lightning Thief then you ll enjoy this one too The book is written in the same vein as the first, mining the Greek myths for monsters and plot, and mixing in an American road trip along with Percy s irreverent observations.
We don t get much of Annabeth in the book as she s a prisoner for a lot if it We get lots of Thalia Zeus daughter , a fair dose of Grover a Pan hunting satyr , and a lot of Zoe Nightshade one of Artemis hunting posse A lot of the book is spent travelling by varied means from one side of the States to the other, a journey punctuated by encounters with monsters We re set up for a big boss battle on the Mountain of Despair and that s a fun battle with everything from gods and titans to dragons and bi planes All in all an action packed book to which Celyn was happy to return at every opportunity And if some of the Greek myths stick with her all to the good Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes hmm not my favourite of the series, but still quite enjoyable lets break it down.

8 Stars THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILER There is always a way out for those clever enough to find it I should ve written this review a few days ago but I didn t because I was pretty busy and well, lazy as well hahaha My first year in university has started since Monday and I have been pretty busy with tasks lately but I m enjoying my college life so far it s so much fun I m writing this review on my phone so I will add gifs and the quotes from the book later because I don t have the book with me right now What I didn t like To be honest, the whole thing about saving mission is pretty clich In the first book, Percy saved her mom, in the second book, Percy saved Grover and in this book, Percy saved Annabeth and it s pretty clich , you know now I m wondering what will happen in the fourth book I m hoping it won t be like this any I m not saying I didn t enjoy this book, I did enjoy this book but I just got a little bit bored with this whole saving mission I just want the three of them together Percy, Annabeth and Grover That s all Just like the first book My Opinion Did I ever tell you how I love the writing style of this series The writing style is SO good It s really funny and the writing style is the first reason I enjoy reading this book Like how could the author write this perfection Seriously, the writing style is so perfect The wind blowing through my ripped clothes was so cold that I felt like a Percysicle NICO DI ANGELO Look, I m the last children in my family, so I have always wanted to have a little sister or a little brother and OH MY GOD NICO IS SO DAMN CUTE I want him to be my little brother and he needs to be protected at all cost and OH MY GOD at first I couldn t even guessing who his godly parent was but then when I was half way through the book or nearing the ending, I just had this thought that he might be the son of Hades and I WAS RIGHT and my heart was breaking for him look, at first, I didn t even believe that Biance died I just thought that she would somehow survive but then I realized that she died and my heart was breaking for Nico I have a big sister who I love so much and just the thought of losing her scared me so much THIS BOOK WAS SO HILARIOUS I laughed so much at this scene Grover blushed I was sort of camped outside the Artemis cabin What for Just to be, you know, near them You re a stalker with hooves and they continued talking but I just had to stop reading for a moment because I was laughing so hard Thankfully, I didn t read that scene in public otherwise I might got funny looks from my friends or anyone but I kind of thought that Grover was kind of strange, you know why would he camp outside the Artemis cabin and the reason was just that he wanted to be near them LOL Grover is so funny, I like him so much my eyes got a little bit teary when Zo died Why did she have to die Zo was an interesting character and I wanted to readabout her but she died why do this always happen to me every time I started liking certain characters, they either get hurt or die why have I done to deserve this kind of torment Let the world honor you, my Huntress, Artemis said Live forever in the stars shit My eyes are teary again right now Okay, bye guys, I m going to go and enjoy this pain REVIEW TO COME TOMORROW that was what I said a few days ago but I still haven t written the review hopefully, I ll write it tomorrow I rarely laugh when I read but the first two books made me laugh and I CANNOT WAIT TO LAUGH MORE WHILE READING THIS BOOK.

netPercy Jackson Reviews The Lightning Thief The Sea of Monsters The Titan s Curse The Battle of the Labyrinth RTCThe Last Olympian RTCThe child in me is forever kicking myself every time I finish one of these books that I didn t read it sooner Ironically, a series that I think is perfect for getting young boys into reading is one that I somehow passed over entirely when I was a kid Like the previous two entries in the series, there s magic and mayhem and an awful lot of mythology One thing I find so great about this series is the way it serves as a vehicle to inform and educate young readers Obvious, it offers mythology with its own twist, but it s also informative towards the original stories Even when things differ for the sake of Percy s adventures there s usually an excuse given in the storytelling Jam packed with action and sword fights and memorable villains I feel like had I read this as a kid I would have been obsessed with it, right along with Harry Potter I had small issues with this book that brought down my rating a little Firstly, this one definitely suffers from middle child syndrome By this point in the series we know the stakes We know that Percy s going to end up on an adventure that takes him outside Camp Halfblood, and we know that the end goal is seeing him reach his 16th birthday when prophecies abound This offering in the series raises the stakes in small ways, but in others I felt like it was sort of useless fluff There are a few new characters introduced in this outing One of which get unceremoniously dumped from the plot fairly quickly in terms of the entire series unless they make a surprise return in later books that is and the other I m sure will be expanded on in books 4 and 5, but here these characters felt almost totally useless Even the one that might someday return felt wasted Like they re there one moment and then dumped when the plot called for it Oh, and the Hunters Artemis has these immortal hunters that follow her around like lackeys, and while I love that idea, I wasn t in love with how blase some characters were about joining her band, when joining means leaving behind your mortality and everyone you ve ever known to join a goddess Although that does sound really awesome Other than those two tiny things, I really enjoyed the story and am excited to see where it goes next I think a lot of things from this book will likely come up again and become important, so I m happy to give this 4 out of 5 stars 4 5 stars A 84% Very Good NotesIt deals in decision and destiny, drawing by doubt, defeat, and demure desire the draining disquiet of deep devotion.
you know I would be proud of myself for finally reading something unrelated to the All For the Game series but now I m going to binge reread the rest of this series and get obsessed all over again
