The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan

The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan
2007, Puffin Books
Series: Book 3 of Percy Jackson & the Olympians

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.

Why read: Reading the series

What impressed me: This series continues to be surprising and highly entertaining, even as an adult reading it. This must be seriously mind-blowing for the younger crowd. I love watching Percy continue to find himself and his place in the world, as well as the dynamics between him and Annabeth. The vastness of mythological information provided within these books in amazing and will serve readers well from an educational as well as entertainment standpoint.

What disappointed me: Not a thing.

Recommended: Definitely. This is one of the best gender-neutral middle grade series out there.

Continue series: Absolutely.
