After loving my reread of the first book in the series it is time to jump straight into the second in the series.
The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan’s amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a “half blood” whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan’s series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment.
In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book’s drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come.
Taken from goodreads
Percy is told that he shouldnt come to camp this summer as he will be in danger, but obviously in traditional Percy style, he goes anyway. This is when you find out the extent of what Percy is willing to do for his friends.and if anything after reading this book you will end up liking Percy even more.
Compared to the action scenes in the last book this one is leaps and bounds above. We get boat battles, and battles against giants and Percy is able to hold his better this time around. Now when you are reading the fight scenes you now have a feeling Percy might just win every fight instead of just hoping he isnt going to get killed.
The book is very short at just 265 pages, which is more than a 100 less than the first book. This does make everything happen in a very short amount of time but this is actually a good thing. When you are on a quest and have a time limit then you don’t want any filler to make the days go slower you want everything and fast as possible.
This is when Percy and Annabeth start becoming closer together and can see that something is close to starting between them, I am looking forward to reading about their journey together.
This is a great way to continue the series and I have already started the next book.
