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
