This novel, written by Rick Riordan, is the second installment in the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" Series. This book was my favorite book out of the series (5 Books Total), because the characters start forming their true personalities, relationships are becoming concrete and the imagination that I encountered was far greater than most of the books.
The book takes off with Percy enrolled in a school where if you screw up, you pass (I guess fundamentals are a little obscure at this school). Anyway after a series of unfortunate and yet crazy things happen to Percy and his new friend Tyson, Annabeth shows and tells Percy that Camp-Half Blood is losing it's border power and must do something that will prevent the camp from being destroyed. Percy, Annabeth and Tyson go on a quest to the Sea of Monsters in order to save the camp and.... Grover?!
?Powdered donuts," Tyson said earnestly. "I will look for powdered donuts in the wilderness." He headed outside and started calling, "Here, donuts!?

great spin on greek mythology...for young adults
As an adult I still enjoyed the book 1-book 2 of the series and intend on ordering the 3rd....Sometimes it's nice to get your sci-fantasy without the "rated R or x" for violence/etc....and relating the "real" world and the "other world" is fun with the Greek/Roman theme ...thank you Mrs April Morris

If you loved the first, then you'll fall in love with Sea of Monsters. If you loved Rowling's Harry Potter books, heres an equal love. A gripping, second addition to the Percy Jackson series. Its a must read.

Better than Harry Potter
It has action & adventure and is fun to read. Have turned the Harry Potter fans in my 4th grade class on to this Percy Jackson series.
Publishers Weekly, 2006-04-24 In a feat worthy of his heroic subjects, Riordan crafts a sequel stronger than his compelling debut in this second adventure in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. After a group of Laistrygonians (giant cannibals) infiltrate the dodgeball game at Percy's alternative Manhattan school, and his friend Annabeth (a daughter of Athena, introduced in the first book) comes to the rescue, the two take the homeless scholarship student Tyson with them to Camp Half-Blood, where trouble is brewing. Percy soon realizes that Tyson is a Cyclops (meaning they're half-brothers and possibly enemies-both sons of Poseidon) and learns that someone poisoned the sacred Thalia's tree, which protects the "magic borders" of the demigod camp. Riordan catches readers up seamlessly on this world in which gods still reign; he builds on existing subplots and rivalries, and introduces harrowing new challenges as Percy and Annabeth set off across the Sea of Monsters on a quest to find the Golden Fleece, which will heal Thalia's tree. Percy's relationship with Tyson and their battle against the Cyclops guarding the Fleece (Polyphemus) brings up probing questions about shame, family and loyalty. With humor, intelligence and expert pacing, the author uses this tale of believable teens and their high-stakes struggle to bring the mythical lore up to date (e.g., Hermes, appropriately, invented the Internet). A cliffhanger imparts new meaning to the prophesy (mentioned in the first book) and leaves no question that Percy's high-stakes battle for Western Civilization will continue to surprise even himself.

Publishers Weekly, 2006-07-24 Seventh grader Percy Jackson, who found out he was Poseidon's son in The Lightning Thief, returns in The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan, and with his fellow Olympian myth mates tries to save their beloved Camp Half-Blood from an evil and mysterious enemy. Narrator Jesse Berns is back on board, too, with the snappy delivery and all the right funny touches that make this action-packed fantasy such fun. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
