Percy, Annabeth, Thalia and Grover were on a mission to help two demi-gods. But something went wrong when they were attacked by Dr. Thorn, a manticore. A group of huntress; led by the goddess, Artemis appeared to help them and Annabeth went missing in the struggle. Artemis then went on a quest to search for this monster, leaving her huntress with the half-blood camp.
But then, the huntress found out that Artemis went missing. Five people among the campers and huntress were chosen to go through the quest – to find Artemis before the winter solstice, excluding Percy. Determined to save Annabeth, Percy went out and followed the group on his own.
I found the third book of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series is much better than the second one. I like the storyline much better than the previous one. I thoroughly enjoyed Percy’s and his friends’ adventure to save Annabeth and Artemis. It was definitely fast-paced and entertaining. I have to say that I am definitely surprised with the twist at the end of the book. I look forward to read Percy’s next adventure.
