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. (Goodreads)
The second book in Riordan’s Olympians series is one of my all-time favourite YA fantasy novels.
There is a lot more adventure and intrigue than the first novel and the main plot of the series is hinted at properly for the first time.
Like all of this series, it is both very funny and emotional with beautifully crafted and developing characters. I loved this!
