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. 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 millennia—only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name…the Bermuda Triangle. Now Percy and his friends—Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson—must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes by the end of the summer or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family—one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke.

german and english review (spoilerfree) Inhalt: Percys siebtes Schuljahr verläuft einigermaßen ruhig - einigermaßen. Wenn da nicht diese Albträume wären, in denen sein bester Freund in Gefahr schwebt. Und tatsächlich: Grover befindet sich in der Gewalt eines Zyklopen. Zu allem Übel ist Camp Half-B...
Book 1 was only OK for me but since Book 2 was just sitting there on Hoopla, I thought I would give it a try. I liked it a bit better than Book 1. It seemed to move along at a swifter clip and Percy is growing up a little. After all, he’s gotten to use his sword (Riptide) a few times and beaten back...
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 Gree...
This time around I gave The Lightning Thief an extra star and took one away from Sea of Monsters. This is a perfectly serviceable sequel. It's just not as good as some of the other books/as good as I remember. There are some continuity issues between this book and the first one from Mr D’s shirt...
Tl;dr version- lots of action, lots of funny moments, I love the mythology, and a surprising ending. This was very different from the film, but both were good in their own way. Can't wait to read The Titan's Curse! No full review, because I'm lazy. #sorrynotsorry.
