I liked the first book well enough, but I think I actually liked this one even better. Great pacing again, but a bit more concise, and I really appreciated the intricate plotting and twists. I think it helps, too, that I have gotten more invested in the characters and knew better what to expect. Some surprisingly poignant scenes in Percy's relationship with Tyson, Poseidon, and Clarisse, I thought. Loved it. :) ( )

Welcome to this BOOK REVIEW !!! YAAAAAY

hahha, well first of all thank you for starting to read this review.Now let's get to the actual review.
If you read the first one, nice ! Wasn't it fabulous ! If you saw the movies back down right now because they have almost nothing to do with the book! So pick a copy of the first one and start entering this fabulous world :) ! So this book was everything and more of what I wished for this second book in this--so far-- wonderful series ! Once agian this book made me laugh and cry and be very angry against some events that happenened in it. I recomend this book to everyone, obviously hahaha !

Am I the only one that was like, percy you asked for help and he sent you your brother what else do youwant !!?? he will forever be loyal to you so yup live with it ! And I cried a lot when Tyson had to go away and when we discovered his youth, I mean it was so touching! He loves percy so much and is so sweet and all! I was so surprised by thalia's apparition at the end of the book I was like what ???!?! WHo is "the one" then ?!? (#teampercy) But I think they will be BFF's since they both get each other more because of the fact that they are both children's from one of the big three. Anyways I can litteraly not wait for the next book |#percyjackson&theolympiansthetitanscurse

See you next time,...

First words
My nightmare started like this.
Humans don't exist on the same level as the immortals. They can't even be hurt by our weapons. But you, Percy--you are part god, part human. You live in both worlds. You can be harmed by both, and you can effect both. That's what makes heroes so special. You carry the hopes of humanity into the realm of the eternal. Monsters never die. They are reborn from the chaos and barbarism that is always bubbling underneath civilization, the very stuff that makes Kronos stronger. They must be defeated again and again, kept at bay. Heroes embody that struggle. You fight the battles humanity must win, every generation, in order to stay human.
