The Sea of Monsters: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book Two (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #02) by Rick Riordan
The Sea of Monsters: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book Two (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #02)

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan is an excellent adventure-filled sequel to The Lightning Thief; filled with adventure, challenges, and mystery. The main character Percy Jackson faces even more challenges in his demigod life. Percy comes to find his only safe haven, Camp Half Blood, to be no longer safe, what else could go wrong?
Rick Riordan was very creative in this novel. Creating places such as The Sea of Monsters and giving a vivid description of the setting. He does an excellent job in characterization. I actually felt like I knew the hardships Percy was going through myself. Adding multiple plot points in his writing making it almost impossible to put the book down. Although the book drags towards the end this adventurous novel kept me reading.
The Sea of Monsters is an excellent read for those who crave thrill and adventure.
