Previous ones: #1 and #2.

I came with three but was entombed
Smelled leaves for way too long
I came out with the help of gold
But see one missing

Then I went west, almost sixteen
With only days to spare
I made a choice for my well-being
And delayed it some years.

  • $\begingroup$ Is the poem/riddle about the character in the book or the book itself? or would answer this question be considered too much of a hint? $\endgroup$ – wolfsshield May 3 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ @wolfsshield: It is the character. But you're right about the book. (or is that a spoiler?) $\endgroup$ – Tzu Li May 3 at 22:39

The answer is inspired by @Invent Palooza's, though I think mine is more accurate

The character is

Thalia Grace, from the Percy Jackson series.

I came with three but was entombed

She arrived at Half-Blood Hill with Annabeth, Grover, and Luke

Smelled leaves for way too long

Got turned into a tree

I came out with the help of gold

Was brought back via the Golden Fleece

But see one missing

But Luke had left them.

Then I went west, almost sixteen

In the Titan's Curse, she traveled to San Francisco

With only days to spare

She's days away from becoming 16

I made a choice for my well-being

Became immortal

And delayed it some years.

And forced the prophecy on Percy

  • $\begingroup$ Yep! Just it's a tad bit wrong. No, not "There's always a time limit," remember the conversation with Apollo when they were at Westover? $\endgroup$ – Tzu Li May 4 at 5:25
  • $\begingroup$ Right, that's a better fit. Edited. $\endgroup$ – AureySteader May 4 at 7:48

The answer is:

Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth


I came with three but was entombed...

He came with Tyson, Grover, and Annabeth and was entombed (the Labyrinth)

Smelled leaves for way too long...

Not sure about this one, yet. Maybe reference to search for Pan?

I came out with the help of gold/But see one missing...

Not sure, either.

Then I went west, almost sixteen/With only days to spare/I made a choice for my well-being/And delayed it some years

The Great Prophecy talks about a hero reaching sixteen against all odds. Percy is very close to reaching this age in The Battle of the Labyrinth
