Scoop of the e-e-evening: The Sea of Monsters

Reviewed by my 14 y/o brother, Robbie.

The Sea of Monsters begins on the last day of school for Percy Jackson. Strangely enough, there haven’t been any monster attacks the entire school year. Percy feels that this is going to be the first year he hasn’t been kicked out of school. But by the end of the day, he’s changed his mind.

A tree protecting Camp Half-Blood’s borders has been poisoned, and as it dies, the camp is in danger of being overrun by monsters—unless the “golden fleece” can be found and brought to Camp Half-Blood. Percy, Annabeth and a newly-found friend must journey through the dangers of the Sea of Monsters, known to us as the Bermuda Triangle. What with guinea pigs, confederate warships and the cruiser Princess Andromeda, filled with demons and traitorous half-bloods, Percy’s chances of succeeding in his quest are slim. However, courage and assistance from several unexpected sources help Percy and Annabeth bring the golden fleece back to camp. But does the magic work too well?

Book 2 in a series.
