In the second installment of the tales of Percy Jackson, Percy sets out to find the Golden Fleece to cure the protective tree at Camp HalfBlood. After finding out that the young Cyclops (Tyson) at the camp is his half-brother, Percy sets out with Tyson and Annabeth to rescue Grover and retrieve the fleece.

In the story we see Percy begin to utilize his powers that originate from his father, Poseidon. We are introduced to Hermes (Messenger of the Gods) who is Luke's father, we see Luke again turning more evil, and Ares - Clarisse's father. There are unusual creatures and monsters that reside in the Sea of Monsters which is located in the Bermuda Triangle.

The adventures of Percy Jackson and his friends continue to entertain while educating the reader with the old Greek Mythology. Definitely a keeper!
