The Titan's Curse

Percy and his friends must find Artemis before the winter solstice. This is because in the winter solstice, her influence on the Olympian Council could change an important vote. They need her vote to help decide, and Percy also wants to save Annabeth. Thalia Grace, Zoë Nightshade, Bianca Di Angelo, and Grover go on this dangerous quest. They also are searching for a rare monster that Artemis was trying to hunt down when she went missing.They need to find it to help Artemis even more, because this monster is so powerful that it can destroy Olympus. Percy is called to rescue the Ophiotaurus which lives in the sea. With help from Apollo, they reach Cloudcroft, which is a small town in New Mexico. Soon, a wild gift from Pan comes to carry them to San Francisco. It takes them to the junkyard of the gods. Bianca awakens a prototype of Talos, a giant man of bronze. She destroys it, but dies after this. Percy meets Rachel Elizabeth Dare, a girl who can see through the Mist (which prevents common people from seeing monsters and magical things).Percy and his friends escape from skeletal warriors because Rachel distracts the warriors. They travel to the Garden of Hesperides, where Zoë meets her sisters. She is then poisoned by a dragon. They continue to the Mountain of Despair, where Mt. Othrys, the Titan capital, is now present. They can see Artemis holding the sky up. Annabeth is being held captive by Luke. Percy takes the burden the Titan's curse from Artemis, and after that a fight breaks out. Artemis then tricks Atlas into taking his burden from Percy.
