Titans curse is about atlas returning.
Instead of him holding up the world Artemis
has to. Atlas caught Artemis and made her hold up the world.
So Percy and Anabeth go to save Artemis
They stop Atlas the titan which was cursed to hold up the world.

This was probably the best book in the series.
It has a lot of action and adventure.
It is way better than the second.
It is better because they introduced a new character called Thalia.
She is the daughter of zues.
She is also a demigod

When Percy Thaila and Annabeth go on a quest to find two powerful demigods. Things go bad. When human Mortals and Gods start working together to defeat percy and annabeth. They find Nico and Bianaca. Then Annabeth gets captured by Dr. Thorn. So Bianca is mad and joins the hunter. After percy searches and searches he finally found Annabeth. But figures out Kronos is rising.
The Titans Curse is one of the best books i have ever read. It kept me on my feet at all times. I never wanted to sleep i just wanted to stay up all night reading it. Rick Riordan has the ability to keep us in the book. Never ending quest. Thriller in each turn. Suspense in each page. ( )

This book was pretty interesting but I wouldn't want to read it again. It was cool how Rick Riordan put Tailia in the book... After she got resurrected from the Golden Fleece.. Even the two kids Nico and Biannca were pretty interesting characters... They kept a big mystery behind who their parents were...

Summary: Percy, Annabeth, Grover and Talia go to a school were Talia hypnotizes the teachers to be accepted. Then they look for the other demi-gods for them to join their half-blood camp... They kid's names were Nico and Biannca.. Soon, one of the teachers was a monster and attacked them... And he took Annabeth... Then, Briannca joins Artimis and Nico stays with them... ( )

14-year-old Percy Jackson and his friends: Grover, Annabeth, and Thalia inspect a military school that has two very powerful half-bloods. they find out the half-bloods are called Bianca and Nico Di Angelo. They find that a manticore named Dr.Thorn captures the two powerful demigods and Percy, too. Annabeth, Grover, Thalia, and the Hunters of Artemis come to the rescue. In an attempt to save Percy, Annabeth was captured by Dr.Thorn. The only thing she left was her invisible baseball cap. Percy finds out that Nico's obsessed with a Greek god card game called Mythomagic. Artemis and her lietinent Zoe interrogate Percy and Bianica about Dr.Thorn talking about a stirring of monsters and some guy called the General. They also ask Bianca to join the Hunters with immortality but no romantic love with boys.Bianica accepts,and Artemis is stunned by this news and goes away to hunt a mysterious beast that the General might use. She calls on her brother Apolo to take Percy, Nico, Grover, Thalia, and the Hunters to Camp Half-Blood. After a terrible crash and burn thanks to Thalia, they land of the coast of Camp Half-Blood and discuss the situation and start to plan a traditional Capture the Flag. Percy dreams of Annabeth holding the burden of the sky from Luke. Then, Percy dreams of Artemis taking the burden of the sky from Annabeth. Meanwhile, the Hunters win for the 56th time in a row and the Oracle comes out and recites the following prophecy to Zoe: FIVE SHALL GO WEST, TO THE GODDESS IN CHAINS. ONE SHALL BE LOST IN THE LAND WITHOUT RAIN. THE BANE OF OLYMPUS SHOS THE TRAIL, CAMPERS AND HUNTERS COMBINED PREVAIL. THE TITAN'S CURSE MUST ONCE WITHSTAND, AND ONE SHALL PERISH BY A PARENT'S HAND. The next day Chiron, Mr.D, The Hunters, Percy, and his friends decide who shall save Artemis. Zoe decides to bring Bianca, Phobe (a Hinter tacker), Grover, and Thalia. Percy wants to go to but the Oracle said only five shall go west. In the middle of the night, Blackjack the Pegasus comes and asks Percy to help save a sea creature. Percy discovers that this sea creature is a baby half cow-half serpent, which he calls Bessie. When he gets back to camp, he overhears Zoe talking to Bianica. They said that Phobe had Hives thanks to the Stoll brothers (twin sons of Hermes). Percy wasn't alone though, Nico was behind him listening also. He knew Percy was also going to follow them but when Percy told him not to follow, Nico asked Percy to promise to protect his sister. He follows his friends on Blackjack when they're encountered by Mr.D. He captures them in a web of grape vines and tells them about why he hates heroes. 1,000 years ago, Riptide was given to Theseus, a son of Neptune, by a beautiful princess named Ariadne. She also gave him a ball of magic yarn to work his way through the Labyrinth and he promised to marry her. He dumped her on a little island named Naxos. Mr.D found her heartbroken and fell in love with her and she became immortal. He said she beckons him, even now from Olympus. He said heroes never change in fact he should ask Zoe that question and then he let Percy go. They arrived in Washington D.C. at the Smithsonian. Percy saw Dr.Thorn and puts on Annabeth's invisible baseball cap and follows him. He leads Percy straight to a room full of monsters, with Luke, and The General. The General was lecturing Dr.Thorn about his failure then got five dinosaur teeth out. He then stated them as dragon teeth and plunged them in the ground. He said and incantation and five translucent zombies arose from the ground. He gave them a piece of Zoe's jacket but Percy got caught and was chased after the zombies, which got a piece of his jacket instead. He found his friends but then a Nemean Lion comes and attacks them. Then Percy had an idea and got some of the gift shop space food into it's mouth and Zoe shot arrows into it's mouth. then the lion dissolved into a pelt and Zoe gave it to Percy in honor of his idea. It then turned into a jacket and grabbed a ride to New Mexico. They got there thanks to Apollo incognito and tells him to talk to Nereus about his sister. In New Mexico they are attacked by the zombies after Grover saying," The Gift is near..." Bianca stabs a zombie and it bursts into flames. Then a Giant wild boar appears out of nowhere as a escape route for the gang. The then stop in the Arizona dessert and make camp. In the night Aphrodite and Ares give Percy a message not to touch an of the things in the Junkyard of the gods. After that they head through the junkyard but awakens an automaton named Talos. Bianca sacrifices herself because she took a Mythomagic action figure for Nico from the pile.The group then heads to Hoover Dam when Percy sees Bessie mooing at him. He then sees the four zombies in police outfits. He is then protected by a mortal named Rachel Elizabeth Dare. He catches up to the group and asks Thalia to ask her dad for help and are rescued by big metallic angel statues. Percy then finds out that Thalia, daughter of Zeus, is afraid of heights. The angels then take them to San Francisco to talk to Nereus. Zoe tells Percy that he must capture him to get his question. After the big tussle he asks Nereus about the beast. He says Percy already knows the answer then Bessie appears. Zoe asks about the creature's ( whose name is Ophiotaurus) relation to him. She tells him that who ever kills it and sacrificed its entrails in fire the person would have the power to destroy the gods. Dr.Thorn then appears with his monster army and tempts Thalia to kill the beast. Mr.D then wraps the monsters in grape vines and drugs the mortals. Percy then sends Grover with Bessie back to camp. They then go to Mt. Tam Zoe's home. They encounter her sisters will Zoe deals with Ladon the dragon. She gets bit but head up to the ruins of Mt.Othrys where Artemis is holding the sky with Zoe's father, General Atlas. Zoe battles her father while Thalia battles her old friend Luke. Percy tries to help Zoe but Atlas was to strong. He held up the sky for Artemis to save her lieutenant and trick Atlas to hold the sky once again. Thalia kills Luke by pushing him of a cliff. Zoe lay dying slain by her father, Artemis sends her spirit to the stars making a Huntress constellation. The gods then call the group for the council of the gods. The gods decide to protect Bessie and after some discussion to spare Perseus Jackson. Thalia also decides to become Artemis's new lieutenant so she'll never turn 16 tomorrow. The gods throw a party for the young heroes and congratulate and warn Percy of the quest. At camp he calls his mom with a man called Paul Blofis which makes her happy. Percy then has to tell Nico about the quest. He tells him everything that happened and gave him the Mythomagic figurine. Nico freaks out and when the zombies come and attack Percy, Nico sends them underground and runs away. Percy then recognizes the figurine and Nico's parent: Hades. he tells Annabeth a swears on the River Styx not to tell. Then Grover comes to them saying he heard the lost god Pan say to him,"I await you." ( )

I liked this one so much better than The Lightning Thief and I'm glad I decided to give this series another chance. Even though I know a few events that will occur in future books from reading The Lost Hero (the first book in the Heroes of Olympus series), I look forward to seeing how they unfold. ( )

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".
