bookshelves: juvenile, fantasy

A former friend threatens to destroy everything Percy, his friends at Camp Half-Blood, and the gods of Olympus know and love. Amid this, just as Percy learns his best friend Grover (a satyr) is being held captive by the cyclops Polyphemus, Percy discovers he has a magical half-brother. Ensuing sibling rivalry and self-doubt complicate Percy's quest to rescue Grover and repell an attack on Camp Half-Blood.

Riordan maintains the frenetic pace of the first Percy Jackson and the Olympians in this second. Wonderfully, this second volume outdoes the first in almost every way possible: character development is deepened, myths are plumbed further, and the stakes for Percy and his friends and family are raised. Highly recommended.
