review: The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan

genre: middle grade fiction

In this third installment of the Percy Jackson series, we meet some interesting new characters and travel to some new and dangerous places. As an adult, I love how mythological figures who are back in my brain somewhere are suddenly brought to life in a way that I think will help them stick in a more meaningful way. Again, readers of the Odyssey will find all kinds of parallels. Percy is still a force to be reckoned with and I liked how the formula switched up a bit, with Percy traveling with new and different companions and I loved the curve ball that was thrown at the end. If you like the first two, you can't help but appreciate this one.
