 “Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy.


The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan’s amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a “half blood” whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan’s series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment. In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book’s drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come.


Another amazing story of Percy Jackson and his friends. In the second book of the series, Grover has been abducted by a Cyclops and camp half-blood is under attack, Thalia’s tree has been poisoned and the camp is dying. With the help of Annabeth and his new friend, Percy has to travel through the Sea of Monsters to save Grover and retrieve the Golden Fleece in order to save the tree and the camp.

The main plot point here was introducing Tyson, a cyclops, who turned out to be Percy’s half-brother. Grover also happens to be with a cyclops, one of the nastiest ones around. Everyone, even Annabeth, says no cyclops is to be trusted. They are all evil, cannibalistic beasts. Percy doesn’t believe that, because Tyson has been nothing but nice to him. It was like don’t judge the look kind of thing. Haha.

One part that I really love was when Tyson was leaving to meet their father and have his internship. Percy was really sad because Tyson was leaving, after appreciating him after their quest. Another part that makes me excited to read the book three is the last part! Yes, it’s about Thalia, being risen from the dead just because the fleece magic works too strong.

I can’t wait to read the next book to know what will happen next!
