“Hey, can I see that sword you were using?"
I showed him Riptide, and explained how it turned from a pen into a sword just by uncapping it.
"Cool! Does it ever run out of ink?"
"Um, well, I don't actually write with it."
"Are you really the son of Poseidon?"
"Can you surf really well, then?"
I looked at Grover, who was trying hard not to laugh.
"Jeez, Nico," I said. "I've never really tried."
He went on asking questions. Did I fight a lot with Thalia, since she was a daughter of Zeus? (I didn't answer that one.) If Annabeth's mother was Athena, the goddess of wisdom, then why didn't Annabeth know better than to fall off a cliff? (I tried not to strangle Nico for asking that one.) Was Annabeth my girlfriend? (At this point, I was ready to stick the kid in a meat-flavored sack and throw him to the wolves.)”
“Grover was sniffing the wind, looking nervous. He fished out his acorns and threw them into the sand, then played his pipes. They rearranged themselves in a pattern that made no sense to me, but Grover looked concerned.
"That's us," he said. "Those five nuts right there."
"Which one is me?" I asked.
"The little deformed one," Zoe suggested.
"Oh, shut up.”
“Let us find the dam snack bar," Zoe said. "We should eat while we can."
Grover cracked a smile. "The dam snack bar?"
Zoe blinked. "Yes. What is funny?"
"Nothing," Grover said, trying to keep a straight face. "I could use some dam french fries."
Even Thalia smiled at that. "And I need to use the dam restroom."
I started cracking up, and Thalia and Grover joined in, while Zoe just looked at me. "I do not understand."
"I want to use the dam water fountain," Grover said.
"And..." Thalia tried to catch her breath. "I want to buy a dam t-shirt.”
“Ever had a flying burrito hit you? Well, it's a deadly projectile, right up there with cannonballs and grenades.”
“Wow," Thalia muttered. "Apollo is hot."
"He's the sun god," I said.
"That's not what I meant.”
“Stars,” She whispered, “ I can see the stars again, my lady”
A tear tricked down Artemis’s cheek. “Yes, my brave one, they are beautiful tonight.”
"Do you always try and kill people when they blow their nose?"
-Rachel Elizabeth Dare
“Can’t this thing go any faster?” Thalia demanded.
Zoe glared at her. “I cannot control traffic.”
You both sound like my mother,” I said.
Shut up!” they both said in union.”
SummaryAdd a Summary
Annabeth has been captured and Percy goes on a quest with Bianca (daughter of hades) and the hunters of Artemis and Thalia (daughter of Zeus) to find her
Percy, Annabeth, and Thalia are sent to rescue two half-bloods, Bianca and Nico Di-Angelo. While on this mission, they are attacked by a manticore, but are saved by the Hunters of Artemis. Annabeth is taken captive when the manticore flees. The Hunters, Percy, Thalia, and Grover are sent to camp by Artemis and Apollo. Artemis is soon taken captive and a quest is issued. Grover, Thalia, Bianca and Zoë Nightshade, Artemis's lieutenant, go to rescue Artemis. Percy follows and soon joins the quest. Bianca is killed while facing an automaton. They learn that the Titan Atlas has escaped and was behind the kidnapping of Artemis. Atlas is defeated and returned to holding the sky, but Zoe is killed by Atlas who is her father. Thalia replaces Zoë as Artemis' lieutenant during the gods' summit. Thalia's induction as a lieutenant of Artemis ensures that she never reaches 16, thus escaping the prophecy but leaving Percy as the only one who can fulfill it. They return to camp and Percy informs Nico about Bianca's death. He blames Percy, accusing him of failing to protect her and runs away. Percy learns that the underworld god, Hades, is Nico's father.
In this extremely cool 3rd book of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. there were lots of surprises. There were lots of fighting and story. This was one of my favorite book of series. There was many Bad obstacles but they overcame them all. in this book, Percy, Annabeth,Thilia and Grover goes to a military school to look for two half-bloods! these half-boods are very strong. When they found the two half-bloods, they found out that they werent the only "people" looking for them. The two half-bloods was brother and sister. They had to fight a dangerous monster to get to the them. long the process one of the members was lost.
So the remaining crew took the two half-bloods to Camp Half Blood. They recived a quest to find the lost member. So they asked the Obstle for the profecy of the quest. "Only 5 could come in this quest, one shall be lost, and one shall die by their parents hands". later on the book, they came across the junkjards of the Gods. In that junkyard a new creature raised, and a part of the profecy came alive.
At the end the remainign 4 troop faced one of the dangerous monster thay ever faced yet. it was released from its prison and the 4 worriors had to face it. in the fight they encountered a lost friends and a old enemy!
