*Starred Review* Just after finding Bianca and Nico, two newly discovered half-bloods, Percy, Grover, Annabeth, and Thalia end up trapped between a helicopter and a manticore. Artemis and her Hunters save the day, but Annabeth disappears overÃÂ a cliff; thenÃÂ Artemis rushes off to hunt a dangerous monster. Back at Camp Half-Blood, the Oracle foretells that Artemis must be rescued and makes a prediction that bodes ill for one of their numberÃ¢ÂÂbut which one. Percy, who is supposed to remain behind while others pursue the quest, follows inÃÂ search of the missing Annabeth. Their adventures range widely across the U.S., taking themÃÂ to locales that includeÃÂ Washington, D.C.,ÃÂ and the deserts of the Southwest and pitting them against the usual assortment of colourful adversaries. The Percy Jackson & the Olympians series is builtÃÂ around a terrific ideaÃ¢ÂÂthat the half-mortal offspring of Greek gods live among us, playing out struggles of mythic scaleÃ¢ÂÂand Riordan takes it from strength to strength with this exciting instalment, adding even more depth to the characters and story arc while retaining its predecessors' nonstop laughs and action.

Rick Riordan is also the author of the New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book One: The Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book Two: The Sea of Monsters. His previous novels for adults include the hugely popular Tres Navarre series, winner of the top three awards in the mystery genre. He lives in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife and two sons.
"Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats." "In a feat worthy of his heroic subjects, Riordan crafts a sequel stronger than his compelling debut."
