Audiobook Review @camphalfblood - The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3)

The Titan’s Curse
Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3
by Rick Riordan


But when you're the son of a Greek god, it happens. And now my friend Annabeth is missing, a goddess is in chains and only five half-blood heroes can join the quest to defeat the doomsday monster.

Oh, and guess what? The Oracle has predicted that not all of us will survive...

About the Author:  Rick Riordan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the Kane Chronicles, the Heroes of Olympus, and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. He is also the author of the multi-award-winning Tres Navarre mystery series for adults.

For fifteen years, Rick taught English and history at public and private middle schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Texas. While teaching in San Antonio, Saint Mary’s Hall honored him with the school’s first Master Teacher Award.

While teaching full time, Riordan began writing mystery novels for grownups. His Tres Navarre series went on to win the top three national awards in the mystery genre – the Edgar, the Anthony and the Shamus. Riordan turned to children's fiction when he started The Lightning Thief as a bedtime story for his oldest son.

Today over forty million copies of his Percy Jackson, Kane Chronicles, and Heroes of Olympus books are in print in the United States, and rights have been sold into more than 37 countries. Rick is also the author of The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones, another #1 New York Times bestseller Rick Riordan now writes full-time. He lives in Boston with his wife and two sons.  (Get more info HERE!!!)

Narrated by Jesse Bernstein, see more of his work here!!!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!!

***Borrowed the audiobook from the local library and I have a copy in paperback of the whole series :)

There several covers for this book as well, and I haven’t seen one that I didn’t like.  The ones with Blackjack are my favorite though :)

I really do love listening to this series.  Jesse Bernstein does an outstanding job as the narrator and I love all of his voices for the characters.  In this book my favorite voice was for Blackjack :)  Of course with Rick writing this fabulous series this wouldn’t be possible.  His creativity astounds me.  I love how he blends the real world with Greek mythology.  It is masterfully done.  My son and I love this series.  I love all the life lessons and morals that are built into each story.  Percy’s heart and courage always makes each story amazing, and he has some pretty amazing friends too (Annabeth and Grover) and he met a bunch of new friends too!!!

I recommend reading the books in order as it makes the characters and plot so much more as a whole :)  I can’t even put it into words how fabulous this series is :)

I highly recommend this series especially if you need something to listen to in the car…borrow it from your local library!!!  It is a great family series for everyone to enjoy :)  We are off to start book 4 next :)
