Children’s fiction, Greek gods, fantasy, demigods, gods, goddesses, fiction.
Grover contacts Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia to come to a boarding school for help. There are two half-bloods that arrived, and Grover does not know who their parentage is. The trio arrive and must help get the two half-bloods, Bianca, and Nico de Angelo, out of the boarding school and into Camp Half-Blood. They nearly escape the clutches of a monster that is working for Kronos with the help of Artemis and her Huntresses. Annabeth is missing now, and they must go back to Camp Half Blood to request a mission. Artemis goes on a solo mission to hunt the monster that took Annabeth. The oracle tells the prophecy that Thalia, Percy, and a few others must go to San Francisco where they will find Annabeth and Artemis from danger.
I found this one to be very funny because of the interactions of the characters. Just the dialogue that is utterly hilarious. I found myself favoriting the newest character, Thalia, who is the daughter of Zeus. There is even more Greek lore flushed out as well as some other gods and goddesses being introduced. I am glad for the breadcrumbs of information because it does not overwhelm the plot nor forces anything onto the reader to take it all in at once. I do not like how other authors push it all at once in one go. I like to learn about the world slowly as the plot progresses. I think I read this book faster than the previous book because of how intriguing it is and now have my eyes set on the fourth book that is sitting on my shelf. Cannot wait to read it. The pacing is perfect.
