The demigods race to the rescue, to find that Grover has made an important discovery: two new powerful half-bloods whose parentage is unknown. But that's not all that awaits them. The Titan lord, Kronos, has set up his most devious trap yet, and the young heroes have just fallen prey.
Hilarious and action-packed, this third adventure in the series finds Percy faced with his most dangerous challenge so far: the chilling prophecy of the Titan's curse.

I really enjoyed these books except the narrator was a little annoying. I listen to this series while I work. They are easy to listen to and entertaining enough to help me through a repetitive job. I would recommend these despite the narration and listened to the whole series.
This installment ranks right up there with the other Percy Jackson books. Great company in your car, even found myself idling for a good 10 minutes a few times to hear what happened next, heh.
It seems that audible.com could not get a proper version of this audio book. The narrator's voice echos through out entire book to a point that it is difficult to listen. The quality control should have caught this.
You should read this book if you have read the Lightning Thief. The story is very imaginative and a good part of the book. Rick Riordan is a good storyteller. He makes the story sound real. His characters are believable. Percy has become one of my favorite characters. I like adventure and this is a great adventure. You should also consider reading his other books, like The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Sea Monster. I am nine years old. Happy reading (or listening.)
Very enteraining and enjoyable. I would recommend it for anyone. I found it similar to the fun I got from reading the Harry Potter books, though those were a bit more geared to adults than this. But a fun listen!
This series is very interesting. However, in this book the narrator tries to talk like a Pegasus and it just about drove me nuts! Other than the Mr. Ed impressions, this book is worth a listen.
As an adult reader/listener, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is action packed and keeps the listener's interest until the end. The reader does a fantastic job. I would recommend this to all ages of readers.
I was excited about this series at the start and had high hopes but it does not get better as it goes along. Instead it continues to be rather mediocre and continues to lack the qualities that make many other childrens books so magical. I would recommend instead something better written and better plotted like Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches or Chronicles of Narnia.
"Good humoured fast moving adventue"
Mount Olympus is still with us, moving as the seat power in Western civilization moves it's now in America. The gods are still falling for mortal women and having half-blood children, the heroes whose battlefireld reflexes get them diagnosed with ADHD in the modern classroom.
The monsters, magical creatures, gods and young heroes are all well voiced in this gripping adventure. It adds to the fun if you've read the two previous books, but this adventure can stand on it's own.
Percy has been warned about his fatal flaw, and the prophecy that says a child of the gods will bring about thier defeat. Will he be that child?
