The Titan's Curse: the third book in Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series.
The third book in the most exciting commercial fantasy adventure series since Artemis Fowl. Now in paperback with a thrilling new cover look.
It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal . . . but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious . . .
Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. Action-packed, funny, accessible writing for both boys and girls aged 10+. Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl.
Praise for the Percy Jackson series:
'Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical...This is most likely to succeed Rowling. Puffin is on to a winner' - Amanda Craig, The Times
'Puns, jokes and subtle wit, alongside a gripping storyline' - Telegraph
'Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats' - New York Times
