In this dynamic sequel to The Lightning Thief, Percy Jackson is sent on yet another whirling adventure across the world of Greek mythology. Percy discovers in the first book that he is not just an average teenage boy, but is actually a demigod and the lost son of the great Poseidon. He is introduced to this new world of myth and legend, and expected to step in as the demigod that he is. Here, in The Sea of Monsters, we find our hero gaining confidence and reputation as he continues to mature in this strange realm.

This sequel presents Percy with two major challenges. First, his friend Grover (a Satyr) has been taken captive by a Cyclops and is in desperate need of saving. Second, Thalia (a demigod previously transformed into a pine tree) is dying and needs the long-lost Golden Fleece in order to be revived. Percy realizes, through a series of dreams, that Grover may have found the Golden Fleece. So, along with his fellow demigod friends Tyson and Annabeth, Jackson sets out to rescue Grover and recover the Fleece from the Sea of Monsters, the treacherous place where Grover is trapped. Along the way, the company encounters a number of unsavory characters, old and new, and fall into dangers fitting for the mythos from which this epic tale is derived.

Rick Riordan is a highly praised American author, best known for this very series. He has also written a similar series focused on Egyptian mythology, and is currently writing a second series inspired by Percy Jackson called Heroes of Olympus. He has also co-written several works and overseen spin-off projects of his Percy Jackson work.

After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic 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.

    " Great book in all, but this book just seems like the Lightning thief with different quests. The only difference is that Percy recognizes the Greek world he is in, really. "
