YOU CAN’T TELL BY LOOKING AT ME THAT MY DAD IS POSEIDON, GOD OF THE SEA.
It’s not easy being a half-blood these days. Even a simple game of dodgeball becomes a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants – and that was only the beginning.
Now Camp Half-Blood is under attack and, unless I can get my hands of the Golden Fleece, the whole camp will be invaded by monsters. Big ones…
Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters, the second book in the PJ and the Olympians series, is just as great as its predecessor (ooh, fancy word!).
I love Percy as a narrator. The way he sees the world is so unique and fun! Annabeth was as fierce as ever. I love her so much! And Grover… Hahaha! What has Grover got himself into this time?!
In this book we get to meet a new character (not just one, but he’s just so special, he deserves an honourable mention) Tyson! He’s so adorable and loyal to his friends. I hope we get to see more of Tyson in the rest of the series!
There have been some changes to Camp Half-Blood this year. Some good, others not so much. The chariot races added an extra bit of a historical feeling to the story, which is always great.
For a middle grade book, this series is seriously impressive! The amount of Greek mythology you get to learn just by reading this is mind-boggling! I’m definitely carrying on with this series!
