Percy Jackson’s third adventure begins with the rescue of two mysterious half-bloods, Nico and Bianca. During the mission, however, they lose Annabeth, and Percy is determined to find her. Worse, with Chiron gone, the camp now has a new director-a man named Tantalus who cannot eat or drink. With monsters everywhere and a dangerous enemy on the rise, Percy and friends must join forces with the Hunters for a chance at victory.
Not only are the new characters wonderful, they prove to be very surprising. In the book Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse, by Rick Riordan, especially, we get some great character moments where we find out truly shocking facts about them-things that you only realize were obvious after they happen. I do wish Bianca and Zoe, along with the other hunters, got more character development. They definitely don’t get enough time for us to appreciate them; just long enough so you become emotionally attached. However, they’re still really amazing in the moments they do get, and I really recommend you read it.
