Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters is the second exciting adventure in Rick Riordan's bestselling Percy Jackson series.

Half Boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

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 on the Golden Fleece, the whole camp will be invaded by monsters. Big ones . . .
