Percy Jackson's third adventure happens over Christmas break this time, instead of summer. He joins Annabeth and Thalia to investigate Westover Hall, after receiving a distress call from Grover. Humorously, his mom drives them all over, and the releases them to their hero business. When they find Grover, they learn that he has found two half-bloods at the school, but a powerful monster is also pursuing them. Of course, the monster is masquerading as Dr. Thorn, the vice principal. Teachers are not presented in a friendly light in this series. The four heroes attempt to rescue the di Angelo siblings, but when Thorn reveals his true nature as a Manticore, the fight becomes desperate. The Hunters, maiden girls sworn in service to Athena, enter the fray, and beat Thorn, but in his defeat he falls off a cliff and takes Annabeth with him. Percy and his friends are devastated.

Athena learns that an ultimate monster is at loose, and she sends the Hunters off to Camp Half-Blood while she hunts it. Her lieutenant, Zoe, grudgingly follows her orders. Nico and Bianca di Angelo also head to Camp, and they relate everything that happened to Chiron. Their quiet time is limited, though; Percy dreams of Annabeth imprisoned, and Zoe has a similar dream involving Athena. The kids receive a new prophecy, and thus a new mission, to find the dangerous monster that will lead them to Athena, and hopefully Annabeth as well. ( )

Fantastic story for anyone that that's a fan of Greek mythology. Tore through it in no time at all. Written for middle school age readers, but I think older readers can enjoy this series just as much. ( )

Another good addition to the Percy Jackson series. Fast but fun read. I like these series, how Riordan blends Greek mythology into a modern US setting. ( )

This book is very action packed, exciting, and over all thrilling. 5Q5P The cover art is okay and I'd recommend this book for middle school and high school students. I chose to read this book because I had read the books before it in the series and really liked them. TaddK

So it's funny, but it's also very exciting, with the gods behaving in that disgraceful and unpredictable way that gods do. Then there are the really bad guys. If you're familiar with these ancient characters, you'll be impressed by how Riordan handles them. If they're new to you, it's a gripping introduction.
 
Readers who are familiar with ancient mythology will enjoy Riordan's tongue-in-cheek approach; those who aren't just might be tempted to go to the original sources to learn more.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141321261, Paperback)

This is the third book in the most exciting commercial fantasy adventure series since "Artemis Fowl". Now in paperback with a thrilling new cover look. It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal...but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious...Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. Action-packed, funny, accessible writing for both boys and girls aged 10 and above. This title is perfect for fans of "Harry Potter" and "Artemis Fowl".
