The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan

iconiconAs always with Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson books, The Titan's Curse was a quick but enjoyable read (I finished with it Monday night, though the post about the ebook reader app updates had to come first to keep the news timely).  After the tongue-in-cheek Witches of Chiswick, I have to say I really enjoyed a compelling fantasy adventure like what Riordan's books always offer.

As always, I really enjoyed how much Riordan takes real mythology and weaves it into his books.  I swear, kids are probably learning tons about Greek mythology just by reading these novels.

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but this entire series is based around a plot that Kronos and the other titans have to destroy Olympus and take the gods' places.  And Percy is always somehow involved.  This time, a good friend of his is kidnapped, so he and the others on his quest have to get her back and foil the plot before the winter solstice.

Two books left...  I'm really looking forward to seeing how the series pans out!
