The third fantasy adventure in the Percy Jackson series is now available to download, complete and unabridged, on audio.
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.

I loved it!!! So much better than the films and the performance was great he really brought the world alive, I can't wait for the next one.
The issues I have with this series (my dislike of the narrator put on the back burner for the moment) have only grown with the progression of the series. The narrator keeps doing stupid voices as well. It's pretty annoying actually, especially when voicing a horse or cyclops.
Cool and fun to listen too many times I've had to do it again and again I will be listening to it again soon 😃😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Again, good book but this narrator is just terrible!! Less so than "sea of monsters" but his portrayal of an Asian accent felt too much like parody and made me cringe!
Rick Riordan and Jesse Bernstien did an amazing job Percy Jackson books are the best. My favourite part is evrything. My favourite character is Percy himself you will love this book because I did.
Percy saves us all by holding up the sky to allow Artemis to escape. He then goes on to battle Atlas and manages to put him back in his place.
All done in good spirits and in good company.
Best listened to in good company as well, it lends itself beautifully to sharing. You will all have some very good laughs.
Yes, read the books first, then downloaded them to listen to while traveling. Even had my husband listening to them.
Perfect mixture of Greek history, wit, feelings of growing up...very clever and adventurous
They did make a film, and changed way too much of the plot. Still trying to work out why. Should have used the producers of 'Harry Potter'. The story is brilliant as is!
