Title: Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
Author: Rick Riordan
Reviewer: Stephanie
Genre: Youth Fantasy
Rating: Worship
Alerts/Warnings: None
Premise: Demi-god Percy Jackson and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their camp. But first Percy will discover a secret that makes him wonder whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or a cruel joke. (King County Library)

Opinions: When I read "The Lightning Thief" I was so amazed at what a great story it was. Not only was the story good, the writing was great too! I thought to myself, "Okay, so the series is going to go down from here. There is no way the sequel will be better than that was." But man, I was wrong.

Sea of monsters follows Percy and his friends as they journey to the Sea of Monsters on a quest to save Camp Half Blood. New characters are introduced (and some of them are my favorite in the entire series, like Tyson and Blackjack!), and old characters reunite. I got to see different layers of some characters that I thought I had all figured out. It was suprising and funny and overall a great book!
