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, Tysona 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 millenniaonly today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name…the Bermuda Triangle.

But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his familyone that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

the first book lighting thief. I first thought it was going to be dull, but as I read it
it was more interesting and In finished it, wishing for more. The second one I just got
is explaining who is who from the first book and some knew are mentioned.
It holds you attention and for young or old to enjoy, if you like stories of mythology.
It's well written and there's other ones following this one. There are five books in all with
this. If you are looking for adventure in a book this may be what you're wanting. I can't wait
for the other ones. (JV).
I am a 11 year old girl and I love this . Please try this . You won't know anything by reading just one chapter , at least read the first two or three .
Thank you Rick Riordan !
Percy and his friends are about the same as before. Little character growth, which is normal for a middle grade novel. The introduction of Tyson was simply a twist on Grover, giving Percy his non half blood companion. Tyson was inconsistent, sometimes barely capable of saying two words, other times weaving complex sentences. Otherwise he was what you would expect.
This book is less in the real world and more in 5he magical world. Camp Halfblood was inconsistent. The author introduced a change to the camp, but then in an effort to keep things the same ignored that change when convenient. It was the second worst part of the novel.
I never got over the fact that Camp Halfblood was too dangerous to send Percy to, but then all of a sudden it was too dangerous for Percy anywhere outside the camp. Without a doubt the most jarring, awkward part of the book. There was a missed opportunity after the Guinea pig incident that might get forgotten or maybe the author is waiting to capitalize on it later.
All in all, it was alright. I'm feeling generous, so it gets 4 stars.
