The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2)The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This adventure was great. I like the fact that Percy is growing up and experiencing all these adult situations that adults themselves would buckle under. I love the inclusion of a new character and how he sees that it's not what someone looks like that makes them a good person. He finds a brother along the way to share is battles with him but loses him as soon as he is getting to know him and claim him as his brother. Happily Percy does reunite with his brother but once again finds himself a lone when his brother (who happens to be a cyclops) is invited to stay at his father's underwater palace and Percy isn't. This book is filled with adventure and suspense like the first. We see Percy and Annabeth and Grover grow closer together as friends, he even manages to get one of his enemies Clarissa to not hate him as much.
