Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters
By Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is the second book in the Percy Jackson series and it is about Percy going on a quest that he wasn't given in order to save his best friend, Grover. The story starts off with Percy, son of Poseidon, and his new friend, Tyson, playing a deadly game of dodge-ball only to be saved in the end by Annabeth, another one of Percy's friends who is the daughter of Athena. She brings Percy and Tyson back to Camp Half-Blood only to inform them that the magic tree that guards their camp has been poisoned. This leads to a race where the winner would be in charge of leading the quest to save the tree. Ultimately, Percy did not win, but after being contacted by Hermes and Grover, he had no choice but to go out on his own quest.
I gave this book four stars out of five due to the fact that there was a lot of enjoyable action. There was also a couple of humorous parts scattered throughout that I enjoyed. I didn't give it 5 stars due to the fact that is an easier read than some other books. I thought that the mellow parts of the book were a little too mellow as well so it was hard to stay focused at some points, but this didn't happen very often.
