Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Ok this time you're sure to have a "real" review. I've been thinking about this book since I finished the last one in the series. Soooo, naturally, I went to the library again
Hardcover, 279 pages
Published April 1st 2006
 Miramax
Fantasy, Adventure
After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson is finding his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any normal friends. But things don't stay quiet for long.
Percy soon discovers there is trouble at Camp Half-Blood: the magical borders that protect Half-Blood Hill have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and the only safe haven for demigods is on the verge of being overrun by mythological monsters. To save the camp, Percy needs the help of his best friend, Grover, who has been taken prisoner on an island somewhere in the Sea of Monsters, the dangerous waters Greek heroes have sailed for millennia. Only today, the Sea of Monsters goes by a new name: The Bermuda Triangle.
Together with his friends, Percy must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Island of the Cyclopes or Camp Half-Blood will be destroyed. But first, Percy will learn a stunning new secret about his family, one that makes him question whether being claimed as Poseidon's son is an honor or simply a cruel joke

The last book was so good. I'm hoping this one is the same. I like it so far because it has the same witty lines as last time. Let's hope I'm not disappointed.

*Review*
May 22, 2011- I"ll admit, it wasn't as good as the last one, but I still loved it all the same. All the twists and turns introduced me to the many new characters and I learned about them just as I had in the first book. I think I did not like this one as much because the "quest" they went on was less scary, but I was still impressed with the different monsters they encountered. The thing I really like about these books is the language that author Riordan uses. While reading I always go to goodreads.com and add the quotes I find funny and after looking over all of them that I added, I laugh when I think about the scene it stemmed from. Overall, I really liked the book, and I cannot wait to get my hands on #3.   
Overall I give this **** (4 out of 5)
