Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get……well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of his friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.
Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family- one that will make him question whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor or simply a cruel joke
This is book two in Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It actually makes the series a lot more exciting. The battles are more dangerous and relationships develop further. Percy, Annabeth, and Grover are incredible characters- they are allies in the series. You are introduced to Tyson in this book, and I love him- yes, a Cyclops, but he still is incredible (he is different from the terrible Polyphemus). Things will get more extreme as the series continues.
