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.
Rated: None. But the phrase “oh my gods” is used.
