Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters Review

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters
By: Rick Riordan 

         The Sea of Monsters is a book written by Rick Riordan. It is the sequel to The Lightning Thief and the second book in the Percy Jackson And the Olympians series. In this book, Percy finds out that Luke, the traitor who serves Kronos, has poisoned Thalia’s pine tree, resulting that the camp’s magical boundaries are fading and the camp will be overrun by monsters if not cured. He must sneak out of camp to find the Golden Fleece, only which has the possibility to cure the poison. It is on an island guarded by Polyphemus the Cyclops, the very one Odysseus had escaped.

         The Sea of Monsters’ setting is in the Bermuda Triangle. It is a very impressive book, but I would give it an 8 out of ten because it didn’t quite have the same charm as the first book, The Lightning Thief. Rick Riordan still did a good job on combining the Greek myths, but he did not do as good of a job as The Lightning Thief. Vihan B.; Teen Reviewer

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief Review

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief
By: Rick Riordan 

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is a very adventurous book and is the first book in the series of Percy Jackson and The Olympians where Percy, main protagonist in the story, learns that the Greek myths about the Greek Gods are real and that they are real in the world today. He also finds out that his dad is Poseidon and that he has extraordinary powers over water. The setting is New York. This series is a personal favorite for me because I have a personal interest in Greek Mythology and I live on Long Island, where Camp Half-Blood is located.

I would give this book a 10 out of 10 because it had everything that I would want in a book that would interest me. Rick Riordan did an amazing job of making this book. He perfectly combined Greek myths into a very well thought out book that includes humor, action, and adventure. Vihan B.; Teen Reviewer
