I first started reading this series years ago but for some reason, I never actually completed it. I loved the first book and I loved the second even more. I was a little nervous starting The Titan’s Curse because how could this series get any better?
Book three in the Percy Jackson series starts off with Annabeth, Percy, and Thalia battling a new monster, trying to help new half-bloods. One thing that I love about this series is how strong each book starts off. Always action packed. I do with there was more a recap of the book before though. It’d been awhile since I read book two so I didn’t really remember what was going on.
One of the thing that makes this series stand out so much is the amazing world building. Everything is so well thought out and carefully explained. Each book adds more to the world and more Greek mythology.
I really love the characters in this series. Each book introduces new characters and expands on the old characters. We learn about the main characters with each book and I love how Rick Riordan writes his characters. They’re all different about some how each one of them has redeeming qualities and is so complex. And relatable! Somehow, I feel like I know Percy and his friends. Like if I met them in real life, we would be friends.
The one thing that I didn’t like about this book is sometimes the plot would be so fast paced and exciting that some important parts would be skimmed over. I wanted a little more after math with some events that happened. But that’s just a minor thing.
Overall, I really enjoyed this installment in the Percy Jackson series. The Sea of Monsters is still my personal favorite but I can’t believe how strong this book is. Most series’ don’t get any better after the first book but this is one of very rare series’ that have.
