The Titan's Curse (the 3rd installment in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series) by Rick Riordan is a fun-filled adventure.
I will admit that I had to struggle to remember bits of the second book (It's been over two years since I read The Sea of Monsters!), but Riordan does a good job of reminding readers of the important plot points.
I read this book in an evening, and I really enjoyed it. I'm excited to read the final two novels in the series! I feel pretty solid about this series. I don't love it, and I don't feel like I immediately have to pick up the next two (although I will since I'm borrowing them from a friend), but it's enjoyable. I can see how younger readers would really empathize with the characters and feel the deep connection that I'm missing.
