Overview

Notes From Your Bookseller

A vote is looming, Artemis is missing and a monster is rampaging a little too close to home. Who else can bail out the newest Olympus-sized problem but Percy Jackson?

When Percy Jackson receives an urgent distress call from his friend Grover, he immediately prepares for battle. He knows he'll need his powerful demigod allies, Annabeth and Thalia, at his side; his trusty bronze sword, Riptide; and . . . a ride from his mom.

The demigods race to the rescue, to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey. Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge so far: the chilling prophecy of the Titan's curse.

Editorial Reviews

This terrific YA series by mystery writer Rick Riordan revamps Greek mythology in a fun, fresh way kids find absolutely enthralling. Percy Jackson is a trouble-prone teenager with attention deficit disorder and dyslexia. He's also the half-blood son of Poseidon (yes, that Poseidon!), one of 12 Olympian gods making mischief right here in 21st-century America. Riordan ratchets up the action in this third rip-roaring installment, as Percy and his demigod pals set out to find the vanished goddess Artemis -- and to foil a treacherous plot cooked up by the titan lord Kronos. Fast-paced, funny, and filled with super-cool fantasy elements perfectly suited to 'tween sensibilities, this new adventure is an irresistible treat for the 9-12 set.

School Library Journal

Gr 6-9 -In this third installment (Miramax, 2007) to the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series, Rick Riordan continues the saga of the Greek gods and their half-human offspring. The story takes place in modern-day America where Percy, son of Poseidon, faces off with mythical monsters and other enemies of the gods. Accompanying him are his friends, Grover the satyr, Thalia, daughter of Zeus, and two Hunters. They set off to find the missing Artemis, goddess of the hunt, who has been kidnapped by Titan Kronos's cronies, and Annabeth, daughter of Athena, who has disappeared over the edge of a cliff. To make matters worse, the Oracle predicts that one of them will not survive the quest. Actor Jesse Bernstein does a first-rate job of narrating the story, seamlessly shifting between the voices of the various characters and rendering each of them a unique persona. A great addition to most junior high/middle school and public library audio collections.-Kathy Miller, Baldwin Junior High, Baldwin City, KS

Kirkus Reviews

The stirring of monsters has begun. Monsters not seen for thousands of years threaten to unleash death and destruction on an unprecedented scale and destroy Olympus, and it's up to Percy Jackson and his friends Grover, Annabeth and Thalia to stop them, though Percy is embarrassed to have to depend on his mother to drive him to his battles. Percy, Annabeth and Thalia are demigods, Grover is a satyr and their quest is to find the missing Artemis and the monster she was hunting. This third in the Olympians series makes the Greek myths come alive in a way no dreary classroom unit can. Apollo driving his Maserati Spyder sun chariot, attacks by skeletal zombie soldiers, dragons and a 20-foot-tall metal warrior and the contests between the gods will have readers wondering how literature can be this fun. This can stand alone, though newcomers to the series will race back to the first two volumes and eagerly await a fourth installment. (Fiction. 10+)

From the Publisher

All in all, a winner of Olympic proportions.”—School Library Journal

SEPTEMBER 2009 - AudioFile

Sounding alternately young, or old, or really scary, Jesse Bernstein narrates the third installment of the adventures of teenaged demi-god Percy Jackson and his friends. Facing the potential destruction of Mount Olympus by an ancient monster, Percy teams up with a group of Artemis's hunters to rescue the goddess, and save his friend Annabeth along the way. But their quest seems doomed from the beginning, and Bernstein effectively voices the confusion and loss the team experiences. This book is tied closely to the preceding books in the Olympians series; thus, some story lines are understood better with background. R.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
