Percy Jackson- The Titan's Curse
By Jatwain Sanders Book by Rick Riordan
Titan’s curse, by Rick Riordan, begins with Percy’s mother driving him Annabeth and Thalia towards the military school, Westover Hall. Grover had been sent to the school to recruit more demigods for Camp Half-Blood, also Luke had been trying to steal them away to join his and Kronos’s army. There, they meet with Grover who identifies two of the students, Bianca and Nico di Angela as being demigods. Before they can get away, the group is separated and Percy is attacked by the Principal, Dr. Thorn, who is in a Manticore.
When Artemis hears about the General she tells Percy and the others that she needs to hunt the principal alone. She sends the hunters to Camp Half-Blood with Percy’s group. Once there, the camp officials declare a game of Capture the Flag will take place, as per tradition when the hunters arrive. Thalia and Percy co-captain the Camp Half-Blood team, who due to Percy, ultimately end up losing to the hunters. After the game, the Oracle shows up and gives a prophecy, saying that the hunters and campers need to work together and go on a quest to stop the General, but the prophecy also predicts that two of the five that must go will not survive.
It is decided that Zoe, Thalia, Bianca, Grover, and a girl named Phoebe will go on the quest but Percy is cant go. The next day he’s approached by the Pegasus Blackjack, who needs his help to free a part-cow, part-serpent creature that has gotten entangled in a net. Percy frees the creature, and on his way back to the camp finds Nico spying on the hunters as they get ready to leave.
On their journey, Percy gets the chance to speak with Aphrodite. She tells him that she arranged for the fifth hunter to get sick so Percy could take her place. She supports Percy because of the love that he shares for Annabeth. She warns him that they will be coming upon a junkyard soon and they shouldn’t take anything from it. When they arrive, Bianca ends up taking a statue she intends to give to Nico. This causes a giant bronze guardian to try and stop the group. Feeling responsible, Bianca brings the creature down, but has to sacrifice but she gets killed trying to.
Well thats all of the information i can give you without spoiling the whole book; I wanted to stop at a decent mark and the book to add anxiousness.
