After a year spent trying to prevent a catastropic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson--a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

But things don't stay quiet for long. Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood: The magical borders which protect Half-Blood Hill have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been taken prisoner by the Cyclops Polyphemus on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters--the dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millenia--only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name...the Bermuda Triangle.

Now Percy and his friends--Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson--must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes by the end of the summer or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family--one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

The Sea of Monsters is a great 2nd in the great 5 part series. The characters grow up and as they head into their teenage years the readers learns how living in a world with Greek Gods affect the youth. We see more of Percy Jackson and meet his half brother, Tyson, a Cyclops. This has a great impact on Percy and his image of himself. We also discover Annabeth and her time before Camp-Halfblood with Thalia and Luke. This book really steps up the game on an emotional side. There are many moments where the reader really feels for our main protagonists.

This is the second title in this outstanding adventure series by Rick Riordan. The main character is Percy Jackson, who in the first book, The Lightening Thief, discovers he's the son of Poseidon and thus is a demi-god or hero. In this title, Percy must save camp half-blood by rescuing his friend Grover and retrieving the Golden Fleece. Full of wonderful fight scenes and daring escapes, its an adventure series not to be missed. For mature younger readers or tween/teens.
