Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse


I was a bit disappointed when I finished the second book in the series, Sea of Monsters, but Titan’s Curse is a return to form, with the story engaging, informative and action-packed. It zips along with barely a pause for breath, trying to drop pieces of info about Greek gods and mythical creatures as our heroes battle them.

To an extent it does feel like Riordan is speaking down to his audience a little more than most children’s authors (I realise I am a lot older than the target demographic), explaining where things don’t need to be, repeating himself too much, things which I haven’t encountered in similar books. But they don’t spoil the mood too much and you can race through a simple, but exciting adventure.
