Now in paperback with a thrilling new cover look. It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal ...but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious...Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. Action-packed, funny, accessible writing for both boys and girls aged 10+. Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl. Praise for the Percy Jackson series: "Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical...This is most likely to succeed Rowling. Puffin is on to a winner". (Amanda Craig, The Times). "Puns, jokes and subtle wit, alongside a gripping storyline". (Telegraph). "Perfectly paced, with electrifying moments chasing each other like heartbeats". (New York Times).

Sounding alternately young, or old, or really scary, Jesse Bernstein narrates the third installment of the adventures of teenaged demi-god Percy Jackson and his friends. Facing the potential destruction of Mount Olympus by an ancient monster, Percy teams up with a group of Artemis's hunters to rescue the goddess, and save his friend Annabeth along the way. But their quest seems doomed from the beginning, and Bernstein effectively voices the confusion and loss the team experiences. This book is tied closely to the preceding books in the Olympians series; thus, some story lines are understood better with background. R.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
