The Titan’s Curse

The Friday before winter break, my mom packed me an overnight bag and a few deadly weapons and took me to a new boarding school.

After watching the two movies based on these series, I’ve decided to try one of the books (“The films were all wrong, the books are so much better!” Is there ever someone that liked the film version over the book version?).

As per the title, there is a prophecy with a Titan’s Curse involved. Friends disappear, threats are made and a quest has to happen. Just like the myths Rick Riordan borrows his gods from. Because – for those not in the know – Percy Jackson and his friends are half-breeds, children of the gods of Olympus and a human parent. This creates a very entertaining mix of teen adventures and mythology (and a successful one, looking at how large the series are).

The Titan’s Curse is packed with action, entertainment and teenage emotions. I don’t know if there will be a third movie, but I’ll definitely continue with these series.
