Book Review: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Book Review: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jul 06, 2013
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Percy and Annabeth set out on a quest to rescue Grover and save Camp Half-Blood. Kidzworld has the book review of The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan, book 2 in the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series.

Camp Half-Blood's Demise

When Percy Jackson returns to his favorite place in the world - Camp Half-Blood - the camp is in chaos. Someone has poisoned the tree on Half-Blood Hill causing the camp to lose its protection from monsters. To add to the chaos, the centaur activities director Chiron has been fired by the bitter camp director, Mr. D.

Nightmares of Grover

Meanwhile, Percy has been dreaming of his satyr friend Grover, who set off last summer on a perilous quest. In his dream, Grover is being held captive by a satyr-eating cyclops. Percy knows that he must save his friend, and in doing so, he can try to steal the Golden Fleece - the one object that could heal the tree and restore the camp's protection. So Percy requests a quest, only to be turned down. Clarisse is awarded the quest instead, but Percy doesn't take no for an answer.

The Sneaky Quest

With the help of Hermes, the messenger God, Percy, Annabeth and Percy's half-cyclops brother Tyson set out on their own quest only to encounter many dangers along the way, including a ship explosion, an evil spa, and worst of all, Luke and his plans to resurrect Kronos and destroy Olympus.

The Bottom Line

The Sea of Monsters is filled with one adventure after another. Percy and his friends encounter many mythical creatures on their quest, including a hydra, a cyclops, hippocampi, sirens and more. This is the second action-packed book in Rick Riordan's Greek mythology-inspired series, and its film counterpart will be released in August 2013.

Hi, I'm CoffeeBean your fellow coffee lover and rper. I enjoy doing advanced roleplays and really pushing my limit on how much I can write as writing is a passion of mine. Despite being only 12 I have been roleplaying for nearly 5 years, rping with advanced rpers for about two years now. I'm a bit of a grammar freak, so please don't be offended if I correct your grammar... It's not an act of rudeness. Anyways besides all that, I also LOVE drawing (I have been for 6 years) and have recently received a wacom tablet, but sadly I lost the pen making it so I am unable to draw digitally. I am a huge animal lover, and I plan on being a wildlife veterinarian in the future. I own 4 Yorkies and a rabbit in real life, and I love them dearly. I pretty much have remembered every dog breed known to man and am slowly working on canine genes, anatomy, ect. I will probably than move on to felines and equines.  I'd love to meet all of you and get know you all! - CoffeeBean
