Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan was My Favorite So Far

I personally think this picture perfectly captures how Christmas morning looks like in my headquarters: rain has been pouring continuously since I woke up at 6.30 this morning, and there is this different atmosphere that makes the air feel different somehow.

Just like everyone else, my love for Christmas mornings is huge. Spending it with the last few chapters of Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan made it feel even better. Picking up where it left off in the previous book, Percy has yet to discover what and who the big prophecy means. And when Annabeth is kidnapped by the Manticore, one of Luke's personnel, followed by the missing goddess Artemis, Percy tries his best to rescue them alongside Thalia, Grover, and Artemis' loyal hunters.

I admit, the first few chapters of Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse were a bit hard to go through. A part of me was afraid that the third book would go downhill given that rereading the second one felt a bit like a letdown. Rest assured as it had proved that the contrary was true: out of the three books I had reread, this one became ultimately a favorite.

Percy's quest in this book was more action-packed, touching, and nuanced plot-wise. However at first, I had thought that with Annabeth missing, the whole journey would be very bland. But with Thalia and Zoë Nightshade in the equation, my concern proved to become pointless. Thalia and Zoë were not the types you would admire in your first few chapters, but they would eventually grow on you.

In conclusion, if you've found the previous book quite disappointing, I urge you not to get rid of the series that quickly. Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse was really good that I would even go as far as to say that it was worth staying up late at night for.
