Book Review: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

Published on November 19, 2013

I just finished reading the third installment of Percy Jackson & the Olympians series. I was sidetracked for a while because I got hooked to a love story trilogy which was written by a Filipino author. But even if there was a three-month gap between the time I read The Sea of Monsters and The Titan’s Curse, I was still able to recall the important details from the second book that are substantial in understanding The Titan’s Curse. Rick Riordan did a great job in refreshing my very rusty memory. :p

The heroes are once again tasked for a quest because Olympus is at risk of being destroyed. This quest gets a bit personal as Grover, Percy and Thalia need to save their friend Annabeth.

I did enjoy reading The Titan’s Curse the same way I enjoyed the first two books. Their quest is filled with monsters, dark secrets and new revelations. I loved the addition of the new heroes and the Hunters. And the presence of the gods and goddesses is slowly being felt more. I ran out of my Greek mythology stocked knowledge a long time ago, but Riordan did a great job in brushing up my memory. If this book came out when I was still in high school, I would have done a better job in my English class! =))

Packed with humor and high-powered action sequences, The Titan’s Curse is by far my favorite book of the series. Riordan nailed the ending! I didn’t see that cliffhanger coming. Some mysteries have been unraveled yet new mind-boggling questions surfaced. I don’t know how Riordan gets better and better with each book!
