SYNOPSIS: When the goddess Artemis goes missing, she is believed to have been kidnapped. And now it’s up to Percy and his friends to find out what happened. Who is powerful enough to kidnap a goddess? They must find Artemis before the winter solstice, when her influence on the Olympian Council could swing an important vote on the war with the titans. Not only that, but first Percy will have to solve the mystery of a rare monster that Artemis was hunting when she disappeared—a monster rumored to be so powerful it could destroy Olympus forever.

I’m almost finish with this one. Loving the story so much I’d probably finish all 5 books by Saturday. Hopefully I’d be able to continue with “The Heroes of Olympus” series. Can’t wait! 🙂

SYNOPSIS: Percy Jackson, a thirteen-year-old “half-blood”, whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, makes an action-packed comeback in Rick Riordan’s Greek mythology-based book series. In this second installment, demigod Percy Jackson and his friends rescue his satyr friend Grover from the Cyclops Polyphemus and save the camp from a Titan’s attack by bringing the Golden Fleece to cure Thalia’s poisoned pine tree.

When I was in Grade 6, I remember reading the book Mythology by Edith Hamilton and fell in love with it. I’ve been so captivated with the stories of the gods and goddesses that I became obsessed in learning more. I actually made a compilation of all the stories of every individual (gods, goddesses, nymphs, demigods etc.) in both Greek and Roman mythology that I could find. I even had them in alphabetical order. *nerdy mode*

Well, I’m almost done reading this story in ebook form, which I just started yesterday while at work. I love these kinds of  stories, reading them is akin to a bag of hersheys “cookies and cream” kisses in front of me — it will be finish in no time! LOL!

Anyway, I’ve read the first book “The Lightning Thief” back in 2011 when the movie came out. The movie wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either. They made a LOT of major changes. The book was so much better, which is not actually surprising. However, it took a while for me to continue with the series ever since I came here in Qatar. I can’t seem to find the book set here, but nevertheless, the adventures of Percy Jackson is an interesting read for anyone who loves mythology.
