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...This is Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. It is perfect for fans of "Harry Potter" and "Artemis Fowl".
