Mini Review Monday: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
The Sea of Monsters
Summary From Goodreads:
The heroic son of Poseidon makes an action-packed comeback in the second must-read installment of Rick Riordan’s amazing young readers series. Starring Percy Jackson, a “half blood” whose mother is human and whose father is the God of the Sea, Riordan’s series combines cliffhanger adventure and Greek mythology lessons that results in true page-turners that get better with each installment. In this episode, The Sea of Monsters, Percy sets out to retrieve the Golden Fleece before his summer camp is destroyed, surpassing the first book’s drama and setting the stage for more thrills to come.
It’s time for another edition of Frodo’s Hobbit Sized Reviews on Mini Review Monday! Short and sweet just like 2nd breakfast!
As most of you have already heard of and read the Percy Jackson series I figured this is the perfect book to have a short and succinct Hobbit-Sized review. Rick Riordan is a genius. The Sea of Monsters was a great continuation of the series and really allowed us to dive into the world even further and learn some more about the mythology as is portrayed by Riordan. We get a nice mix of the “real” mythology as well with the Golden Fleece story told in full. I didn’t really care much for the new character, Tyson, that much either way but he was alright. However, I love the chemistry between Percy and Annabeth which seems to get better with each book in the series. Yes I ship MG characters, don’t judge me!
To summarize: It’s Rick Riordan, this book was the one that made me decide to buy all of his other works (yes it was THAT good) and it’s the Percy Jackson series. What more do you need to hear? If you haven’t started the series and are late to the game like I was/am I definitely recommend it! I can’t wait to read The Titan’s Curse sometime soon. Thanks as always for reading! ^.^
