This is a great follow up, we get to look farther into the Greek mythology. What other children of the gods are there? What happens when some of them are considered monsters? Percy has been having a great school year...for him. It's his last day of school and all he has to do is finish his exams. The only friend he's made is Tyson, he's large easily scared, and has some development problems. Percy is the only person in the whole school who stands up for him and protects him. When he starts having nightmares about his best friend Grover, then monsters attack, and Annabeth shows up Percy knows something is going on at camp.

Thalia's tree has been poisoned and the camp's borders are being threatened by monsters, Chiron has been fired and the new activities coordinator is prisoner #1 from Hades. Again Riordan takes the old myths and stories of the ancient Greeks and updates them.Percy and his friends have to sail through the Sea of Monsters, the same one that Odysseus had to sail to get home. With clever and fun twists on stories like the Hydra, and the Bermuda triangle Riordan creates a world that makes anything seem possible.

Can they save the camp, rescue Grover, and get back before Thalia's tree dies? Will Annabeth give in to her deepest wishes?
