When Annabeth (daughter of Athena) arrives on the scene with more bad news, Percy has to embark on another quest, this time unsanctioned, to save Camp Half-Blood, which is vulnerable to attack since its defenses have been breached. He also has to save Grover, who's found himself in an inter-species entanglement in which he doesn't quite see eyes to eye with his suitor.
Accompanying them is Percy's class mate Tyson, a street kid who counts Percy as his only friend, but who is much, much more than he seems. The three travel to the treacherous Sea of Monsters in the face of insurmountable odds to capture the Golden Fleece, which hopefully can counteract the poison and restore the magical protection of the Camp.
Steeped in Greek mythology, yet written for young readers, this one is highly recommended for developing the imagination with its combination of thrilling adventure and legend.
In book two we have a long, mostly maritime, quest to save Grover (a main character from book one), and to find the legendary Golden Fleece. It's all really well done, and the budding friendship/relationship between Percy and Annabeth is very low key but is kind of intriguing.
The dark lord character, Kronos, is still rebuilding his strength, and the atmosphere of impending doom is quite strong, and makes you want to grab book three to see how the war turns out. I'm not quite sold on Luke, who is Kronos's right hand man. Luke isn't quite evil enough, but that's just a minor criticism.
Anyway, a second good adventure, and the ending is great... more mysteries to make you hungry for book three!

As said earlier, Mr. Riordan is my son's favourite author. The fact that his favourite hero has a cyclops for a brother is a riot to him. Read morePublished 5 months ago by kathy gardner
