Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Book 2: The Sea of Monsters
Here we are, it’s book two everyone! So put on your seat belts cause we going on a Greek mythology journey with the sassiest son of Poseidon in town!!!
It’s about one year since the events of the last book. Percy gets to go to Camp Half-blood again this summer, but something is wrong. The borders of the camp aren’t working??!!??!? So, monsters are getting in??? SO, of course Percy wants to go on a quest to save the camp, but nope, Chiron don’t run this camp no mo. And the other dude picks Clarisse (really???) to go find the Golden Fleece and save the camp. Percy ain’t having none of that fam. So, Percy, Annabeth, and Percy’s newfound half-brother named Tyson, a baby Cyclopes, go to save the camp too. But they’re also doing this to save Grover who got captured by the cyclopes Polyphemus, who also happens to be protecting the Golden Fleece!! And also, enemies are everywhere!!! And the Titan Kronos, the baddest baddie to ever bad, is rising?!?!?
So anyway, the plot thickens and Percy gotta go kick some butt. Fortunately, this book doesn’t suffer from sequel syndrome! This book is just as good as the first one (some people like this one better). We also get character growth!!! Yay!!
Percy- Still sassy, still kicking butt. He becomes much more mature in this one with dealing with the fact that his half-brother is a CYCLOPES. If that doesn’t mature people, I don’t know what will.
Annabeth- Oh, BOY. Annabeth gets to learn her fatal flaw in this one, and I think what she had to go through to learn it, made her a better person. Plus, some Percabeth, YASSS!!!
Grover- Dude’s in a wedding dress. Yup.
Tyson- Literally the cutest cyclopes EVER. AND HE’S SO PRECIOUS. AND HE JUST LOVES HIS BIG BROTHER PERCY SO MUCH!!!!! AND PONIES!!!!
Chiron- M.I.A. basically until the end.
Luke- Sigh. Can’t say much except why??????
Clarisse- SHE GOT BETTER. STILL NOT MY FAVE YET THOUGH.
Sally- How has she not had a heart attack???
Poseidon- Such a great dad that doesn’t talk to you the whole book…….
Still great fam. Possibly better in some aspects. Oh, and still freaking hilarious!!!
Another Great book in the series, and if you liked the first, I bet you’ll like the second too!!!
5/5 stars– yasss
Best wishes and happy reading!!
Enjoy some Persassy
