Synopsis: When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now it's up to Percy and his friends to find out what happened. Who is powerful enough to kidnap a goddess? They must find Artemis before the winter solstice, when her influence on the Olympian Council could swing an important vote on the war with the Titans. Not only that, but first Percy will have to solve the mystery of a rare monster that Artemis was hunting when she disappeared -- a monster rumored to be so powerful it could destroy Olympus forever.

MY THOUGHTS

The Titan's Curse was a reading that I didn't get well. I read it in two weeks and I was studying for tests, which I think made it a little bit... flat. I wasn't enjoying the story so much until it got to the end, when I closed the book with satisfaction.

There are a few "new" things that I loved from this book. It was so awesome the appearence of Apollo, specially, and the others gods. I didn't really undestand what the "bad guys" of the story were... They are kind of strange, as well as the description. I never construct the images of the characters well.

Its story was so much fast-paced that I can't remember all of the things that happenned. I only have flashes on my mind. Although the ending was the highest and the most amazing point of the story, I'm not so excited to read The Battle of the Labyrinth as I though I would be when I finished this.

Overall: ★★
Find it on: Amazon, Barnes and Nobles or Borders.

  2. It's a shame you didn't like the book. In my opinion, this one was the best of the series so far.
    I just loved Thalia's dark sense of humor, it made me laugh during the whole thing.
    I have to agree when u say it was too fast paced. It was, but I thought it was better coordinated with the events compared to the other 2 prequels.
    I didn't start Battle of the Labyrinth yet, but it's in my list.
    Hope u like book 4! =)
