Minirecensioner x 3

Titel: The Titan's Curse
Författare: Rick Riordan
Serie: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3
Sidor: 312

Spoilervarning! Boken ingår i en serie, spoilers från tidigare böcker förekommer.

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.

Percy Jackson serien blir bara bättre och bättre och jag tyckte mycket om The Titan's Curse. Boken är väldigt spännande och det händer hela tiden saker. Jag gillar karaktärerna och det var roligt att få lära känna Thalia, även om jag saknade Annabeth. Jag ser väldigt mycket fram emot fortsättningen och jag måste nästan läsa den nu på en gång.


“Wow," Thalia muttered. "Apollo is hot."
"He's the sun god," I said.
"That's not what I meant.” 

“It seemed wierd calling a teenager "sir," but I'd learned to be careful with immortals. They tended to get offended easily. Then they blew stuff up.”

 “Your former friend Luke " Poseidon corrected. "He once promised things like that. He was Hermes's pride and joy. Just bear that in mind Percy. Even the bravest can fall.”

Titel: The Battle of the Labyrinth
Författare: Rick Riordan
Serie: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4
Sidor: 361

Spoilervarning! Boken ingår i en serie, spoilers från tidigare böcker förekommer.  

When demonic cheerleaders invade his high school, Percy Jackson hurries to Camp Half Blood, from whence he and his demigod friends set out on a quest through the Labyrinth, while the war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord Kronos draws near.

The Battle of the Labyrinth var en mycket spännande bok, och min favorit i serien hittills. Jag älskade när de var inne i labyrinten och jag tyckte mycket om slutet. Jag gillar att se Percy växa upp och jag önskar bara att han och Annabeth kan få ihop det någon gång.
Jag är helt inne i Percy Jacksons värld och nu måste jag genast läsa sista boken!


“Are you guys busy?" Juniper asked.
"Well," I said, "we're in the middle of this game against a bunch of monsters and we're trying not to die."
"We're not busy," Annabeth said.” 

 “A demigod!" one snarled.
"Eat it!" yelled another.
But that's as far as they got before I slashed a wide arc with Riptide and vaporized the entire front row of monsters.
"Back off!" I yelled at the rest, trying to sound fierce. Behind them stood their instructor--a six-foot tall telekhine with Doberman fangs snarling at me. I did my best to stare him down.
"New lesson, class," I announced. "Most monsters will vaporize when sliced with a celestial bronze sword. This change is completely normal, and will happen to you right now if you don't BACK OFF!"
To my surprise, it worked. The monsters backed off, but there was at least twenty of them. My fear factor wasn't going to last that long.
I jumped out of the cart, yelled, "CLASS DISMISSED!" and ran for the exit.”

Titel: The Last Olympian
Författare: Rick Riordan
Serie: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5
Sidor: 381

Spoilervarning! Boken ingår i en serie, spoilers från tidigare böcker förekommer. 

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds are against them. Kronos is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, his power only grows.

In this momentous final book in the "New York Times" best-selling series, the prophecy surrounding Percy's sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

The Last Olympian var helt klart seriens bästa bok och jag älskade den. Jag fastnade i boken redan vid första meningen och det var nästan omöjligt att sluta läsa. Karaktärerna har bara blivit bättre och bättre och jag tycker så mycket om dem. Serien hade ett perfekt slut, men jag är ändå glad över att kunna få återse karaktärerna i Rick Riordans nästa serie, The Heroes of Olympus, som jag knappt kan vänta på att få börja läsa. Percy Jackson and the Olympians är en serie jag rekommenderar varmt, och jag är väldigt glad att jag gav den en chans till.


“With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.” 

“I don't recommend shadow travel if you're scared of:
a) The dark
b) Cold shivers up your spine
c) Strange noises
d) Going so fast you feel like your face is peeling off
In other words, I thought it was awesome.”  

“Everybody was patting Nico on the back, complimenting him on his fighting. Even the Ares kids thought he was pretty cool. Hey, show up with an army of undead warriors to save the day, and suddenly you're everybody's best friend.” 

8,5 / 10
