ALL OF THE BOOKS ARE AMAZING!!! I read all of them in a week..i just couldn't put them down which is a compliment to the books but bad for me since I read it during the busiest week of school. Nonetheless, I do not regret it! Reading these books were worth every second of my time!

Review on “Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2: The Sea of Monsters” The Percy Jackson saga continues in the second book. It was written by Rick Riordan, and published in 2010. With Zeus’s Master bolt returned, and the ancient Greek deities (Gods) at peace, Percy forgoes the opportunity to train at Camp Half-Blood for the rest of the year and returns to home to his mom in New York, who is quite happy now that her abusive husband Gabe is gone. The story begins with Percy waking up on the morning of his last day of school. He meets his friend Tyson on his way to school. At school, Tyson is often made fun of, and the bully, Matt Sloan, makes sure that it stays that way. They later have gym class, where Matt Sloan and all of his followers square off against Percy, Tyson, and a couple other people. During the match it is revealed that Matt and his friends are all monsters, and the dodge balls are really fire balls. They’ve been sent to destroy him, but somehow Tyson is able to block the balls without being burned. Annabeth, Percy’s old friend from Camp Half-Blood, comes to bring them to Long Island, site of their camp. She reluctantly brings Tyson as well. On the way, the drivers give them a strange group of co-ordinates. Upon arrival, they learn that Tyson is actually a Cyclops, and that Thalia’s tree has been poisoned. Eventually the tree will die and the magical barriers that protect the camp from monsters will be lost. The only way to save the camp is to recover the Golden Fleece from the Sea of Monsters. Fans of ancient mythology and adventure books will rip this off the shelves.

Ok, I haven't read the series yet, but so far, people think the movies terrible. Are the books better then the movies, though? As in all the books?

On Percy's last day of school, he and his friend/cyclops half-brother Tyson are attacked by giants. Annabeth appears and saves them before leaving for camp. When they arrive, Percy learns that Thalia's tree, the tree protecting the camp, has been poisoned and Chiron has been accused of poisoning and he was fired. If Thalia's tree fully dies, then the camp boarders won't be protected and more Monsters will start attacking the camp. This will continue unless they find another way to protect the camp borders or the camp will be overrun by monsters. To save the tree, a quest is given to find the Golden Fleece. Clarisse La Rue, a daughter of Ares, will lead the quest to find the Golden Fleece. Percy, Annabeth, and Tyson sneak off, not just for the Golden Fleece, but to find their friend Grover Underwood. They meet Luke on the ship, but are able to escape. They soon join with Clarisse on her quest. Her ship is destroyed passing through the Sea of Monsters and Annabeth and Percy continue their search for Grover after becoming separated from the others. After encountering the sirens and Circe, Annabeth and Percy reach the Polyphemus' cave. They are able to rescue Grover and Clarisse and Tyson helps defeats Polyphemus. They recover the fleece and head to Miami. Clarisse heads to camp and the others are captured by Luke. They are about to be killed before Chiron and the Party Ponies (other centaurs) rescue them and take them to camp. The Fleece is able to save the tree, but it also revives Thalia, whose spirit was in the tree.

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 the demigods will be destroyed. Read more to find out wahat happens in: The Sea of Monsters.

“We only came close to dying six or seven times, which I thought was pretty good. Once, I lost my grip and found myself dangling by one hand from a ledge fifty feet above the rocky surf. But I found another handhold and kept climbing. A minute later Annabeth hit a slippery patch of moss and her foot slipped. Fortunately, she found something else to put it against. Unfortunately, that something was my face.
